At the end of 2021, a poll entitled "Jesus in America" examined American opinions and habits regarding religious life. One surprising piece of data revealed that most everyone, regardless of religious profile, identified being outdoors or in nature is spiritually fulfilling. The majority of those surveyed named it as the MOST spiritually fulfilling activity in their lives. So what does this mean for the church and how we gather? Do we continue to wait for people to come through our doors, or do we go where they already are- in nature? Join Lanni Lantto of U.P. Wild Church, Beckett Leclaire of Holy Hikes Great Lakes, and Jerusalem Greer Interim Executive Director of Procter Farm and Camp, in conversation around creative practices of gathering for worship in the great outdoors – the place where evangelism, creation care, and discipleship can grow together.
