If you don’t listen to podcasts, I heartily recommend the habit. And if you listen to podcasts regularly, let me encourage you to listen to a new one: BaseCamp Live. The BaseCamp Live podcast is a thought-provoking and engaging way to understand classical Christian education better. It will also equip you to be a better parent and more faithful follower of Christ. One of the best things you can do for your children is to understand our culture and how to raise children who are well-equipped to influence it rather than merely be influenced by it.
You can find the BaseCamp Live podcast on iTunes or Stitcher, but you can also listen by visiting https://basecamplive.com/. Please get started – you will not regret it! Here is just a taste of the recent topics you’ll find:
Is Old ‘Bad’ and New ‘Good’ or the Other Way Around?
- Worldview isn’t Enough
- Wimpy or Worn Out? Finding the balance between indulging or burning out our children
- A Fresh Perspective from Africa on this “Classical Christian School Thing”
- You Are What You Sing
- Wisdom from Alistair Begg on Raising the Next Generation
- Education is not Neutral Oatmeal
And here is an excerpt from BaseCamp Live’s description of the show:
You are an influencer…you no doubt want the best for the next generation… academically, emotionally and spiritually…
The greatest challenge is how to shape young people who will encounter a culture that is often working against them and equip them to become flourishing adults who love Jesus Christ, think with confidence, believe with courage and serve with compassion.
Ancient Future Education isn’t something new. The approach has been around for centuries and today is often called classical Christian education. The greatest minds and servant leaders have been educated using this model. It is more than a curriculum…it is a way of life and the model to educate the next generation for the 21st century marketplace.
BaseCamp will equip you, the parent, grandparent, educator, or mentor, to climb that biggest mountain.
Our guests are some of the top thought leaders, culture watchers, and educational experts. They are familiar with the obstacles you’ll encounter on that uphill climb. They will offer you the tools you’ll need to summit the peak and raise the next generation of exceptionally prepared, compassionate, and thoughtful human beings.
Tune in each week for a short 23 minute show that will be encouraging and well worth your time.
