S2 E4 Plugged Out: Is it Still the Great Outdoors?

Oct 18, 2022 | Outdoors and Wilderness, Podcast

We hear it and see it from parents, youth, and society – plugged in to some kind of technology is our near-constant state of being. There are precious few places and it takes more intentionality than ever to get ourselves outside – yet it matters as much as ever for our mental, physical, and societal health.

Enter outdoor ministry, people and places with opportunity to move the world from a little less plugged in to a little more plugged out. We’re meant to be connected – to God and each other – and from Biblical times through this very day, we meet God in these sacred places, these sacred playgrounds, set outdoors on purpose for good purpose.
