Tomahawk Road Trip Retreat - Night 4

This was marketplace night. We talked about how Milennials, 18-to-33-year-olds, are the most stressed of any generation. Primary causes according to one study? Money and career. So we spent the evening talking about becoming more masterful in our crafts in the marketplace.




Tomahawk Road Trip Retreat - Night 4

By Evan Nehring

Road Trip Retreat night 4 in Tomahawk was a great time. It's amazing to me how Tim and Megan Nelson roll out the red carpet for the young adults with a great meal together every Thursday night. This is a special group to hang out with, and I love this season of life where so many huge decisions are being made.


This was marketplace night. We talked about how Milennials, 18-to-33-year-olds, are the most stressed of any generation. Primary causes according to one study? Money and career. So we spent the evening talking about becoming more masterful in our crafts in the marketplace. We talked about being very intentional about carving out a career path that's best suited for each one.

How amazing would that be for everyone who attended to be spurred on to great things in their careers and callings?! How rich would it be for the stress levels to drop as they see clearly the tasks and decisions at hand?!



So, yes, we're going through the whole Road Trip Retreat: five multimedia presentations based on the five big questions of young adulthood:
  1. Start on the Mountain and Chart Your Path - Answering the question, What's my spiritual center?
  2. Make Your Way to the Shire - Answer the question, Who will I spend my life with?
  3. Find God's Truth in the Forum of Ideas - Answering the question, What's my worldview?
  4. Find Your Calling in the Marketplace - Answering the question, How will I make a living?
  5. Rise to Serve on the Stages of God and Man - Answering the question, What difference will I make?

Next Thursday, the grand finale! Rather than getting all cynical about how powerless we are to do anything significant in the world, we're going to lay out a vision for embracing our personal destiny. We're going to change the world!



It's been a blast to meet some new folks each week and to hang out with some extremely hip folks over and over again. One more night for me to ride shotgun on your amazing road trips. Can't wait!
