407-409: The Wilderness of Faith

This three-part episode features Kim Puzey and Lisa Scott, two brilliant and insightful people who are deeply familiar with both wilderness living and faith journeying. Drawing on their backgrounds as guides for wilderness experiences (some chosen by participants, while others were offered as options for adjudicated youth who otherwise would have been sent to jail), Kim and Lisa share lessons not only related to survival in wilderness areas and that help us understand the growth and development of most of those participating in these adventures, but also from their own lives as faith explorers, walkers of spiritual and cultural terrain not always visited by the majority of Latter-day Saints. Both are wonderfully articulate and brave in their storytelling about what it’s like to be “off the map.”

How do “wilderness” and the “wilderness of faith journeys” relate? Quite a bit! We anticipate you’ll be captivated by this discussion!

    This was wonderful, insightful, refreshing, renewing. Thanks to all three of you. Lisa, your list at the end of what you learned is beautiful. Worth listening again.

    Great episode. I’m 2/3 through at this point.

    Before I forget, I wanted to comment that I loved what Kim said in the 2nd episode (408) @ 33:10

    “I have a lot of confidence in the process, if people are free they are going to find their way. One of the things that I think undermines people who are let’s say wandering, is when other important people in their life show up and kind of freak out, and then it undermines their confidence. It also diminishes the truth about our existence. We are co-eternal with the gods, and we have our volition. And as long as we have, as Lisa said multiple times, as long as we keep moving forward, keep moving forward, keep moving forward, it is OK, it is going to be OK, it is going to be better than OK.”
