Renewal in the Wilderness

"Another excellent resource for reconnecting with God through traveling outside civilization is Renewal in the Wilderness. This is a wonderful program of wilderness retreats whose goal is to reconnect people with God through wilderness."
~ The Washington Post




"Lionberger has an encompassing reach, giving voice to atheists, agnostics and the simply soul-weary, as well as believers from many of the world's great faith traditions. For Lionberger, all roads lead into the wild, a destination for spiritual renewal supported in sacred literature and the Bible, which has a surprising and convincing presence here."
~ Publisher's Weekly
