S1 E12: Canceled! Pivoting when plans Change

Feb 9, 2022 | Podcast

We’ve been there. Everything is prepared, deposits are made, details are nearly sorted, lodging and transportation and meals  – and then the message comes – canceled.

Whether it’s something epic like the recent cancellation of the ELCA National Young Gathering, a band trip, an important event. Whatever it may be, we acknowledge and maybe even grieve, and then we pivot.

In this episode, we’re talking about what camp can do to fill the void created when something like this happens, and how connecting and creating space for your displaced ministry partners is something outdoor ministry is uniquely suited to do.
