WE NEED MORE SHEPHERD-LIKE OUTDOOR LEADERS WHO AREN’T SELF-SERVING GURUS, BUT APPROACH RISK MANAGEMENT FROM A DEEPER MOTIVATION
Do we love adventure for what we get out of it, or do we love it because it bends us more toward dependency on God?
Leading others in the wilderness with attention to risk management requires hard skills to protect your group, but even more importantly, it demands having a shepherd-like heart. I have three stories to illustrate this point: 1. A story from guiding a group of CEOs from the Young President’s Organization, 2. A story from the Prophet Jeremiah, and 3. An unforgettable moment between Jesus Christ and his Disciple Peter.
