What happens when an atheist gets tapped on the shoulder by a Higher power?

Can there really be a spiritual power in the wilderness to renew our soul?

How do we rejuvenate ourselves and discover the person we are destined to be?

We're going to hear from John Lionberger, a former businessman whose life took a major turn on an expedition in Alaska.  John's experiences on that trip prepared the way for the start of his nonprofit, Renewal In The Wilderness.  

During the change towards a more spiritual life, John began attending seminary.  His organization welcomes people from all faiths -- and often no faith -- into the wilderness for a renewal trip of a lifetime.

John's book, "Renewal In The Wilderness:  A Spiritual Guide To Connecting WIth God in the Natural World" has earned 5-star reviews, and he has been featured four times on PBS and on ABC.

For over ten years, Renewal In The Wilderness has been taking adventurers into the wilderness:  backpacking, mountain biking, whitewater and flat water canoeing, kayaking, dog sledding, cross country skiing, rock climbing and back country skiing. 

Lionberger is formally trained in wilderness skills, and encourages both individuals, couples and families to participate in these life-changing trips.

We'll be joined by a surprise guest who will also share her story of what Renewal In The Wilderness did for her!

Discover the secrets of the wilderness... and how it could renew you!
