Encounters in Nature– by B. T. Newberg

From the review:

“…when I saw the finished product, I was blown away”

“…will anger readers with a strict sense of faith, and provoke those with an interest in exploring outside their own own beliefs”

“…a candid dialogue between three devotees of three very different paths, exploring one of the greatest forces to shape the history of religion: nature itself”

– Drew Jacob

Part 5: Bringing It Home

Recorded with a Blue Yeti microphone on a Macbook

In today’s segment, the last in a 5-part series, we talk about what sticks with you after return from nature to your daily life.

B. T. promotes valuing nature no matter what others think or say, Urban observes how nature transforms and lifts up the soul, and Drew finds the fruit of living in nature to be none other than confidence and freedom.

All this and a crackling fire today on Encounters in Nature.

And now a question for you:

What do you “bring back” from an experience in nature that sticks with you for the rest of your life?

Part 4: Going wild

Recorded with a Blue Yeti microphone on a Macbook

In today’s segment, part 4 in a 5-part series, the conversation continues as we share our experiences in nature.

Urban shares the strange experience of returning to the city after being in the countryside, B. T. contrasts agriculture land with wilderness, and Drew waxes poetic at how nature gives you everything you need for free.

All this and a crackling fire today on Encounters in Nature.

And now a question for you:

How do you view wild nature?
