Technology, Wilderness, and Creation

Course Description

Embark on an eight-day voyage through Gulf Islands in replicas of eighteenth-century boats, while studying the impact that technologies—both traditional and modern—have had and continue to have upon the Christian life. Row, sleep beneath the stars, watch seals and otters, and contemplate where our technologies are in sync and at odds with creation. No previous boating experience required. This course is offered in partnership with A Rocha Canada.

The friendships and relationships I’ve made during my time at Regent have opened my eyes to how immensely rich, diverse, and massive the body of Christ is. When I hear the stories of many of my classmates, I see Jesus’s immense provision and grace for the church.” — Alexander Marees
