In this episode, Lorna Dueck interviews Mark Petersen about the spiritual lessons he’s learned throughout his life and his month-long pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago, how people of faith struggle with giving, philanthropy, and how to be both shrewd and faithful from a biblical perspective.
Mark Petersen is a philanthropy advisor and the CEO of Stronger Philanthropy. He wrote the book, Love Giving Well: The Pilgrimage of Philanthropy in which he parallels a personal account of his physical pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago with his philanthropic journey to create a sense of momentum and intentional movement toward a shared destination. Each of the thirty-five chapters leads with a short journal entry from the author’s month-long pilgrimage along the Camino del Norte and Camino Primitivo in Spain.
