Tritheos Podcast – Nick Schuetze Altitude Project part 2
In the third ever Tritheos podcast Marathoner Nick Schuetze walks us through his spiritual journey and discusses the impact Altitude Project had and continues to have on his life. Altitude Project is a Christian distance running camp held every summer in Mammoth Lakes, CA. Their mission is to develop collegiate distance runners to excel in competitive running and Christian living.
In addition to the interview we discuss the failures of the notion of rule following as part of spirituality:
#1 It can’t bring you to God
#2 It can’t make you more like God.
We also address the church-going view that you have to sacrifice spiritually if you wish to excel athletically and the opposing view, that you have to sacrifice athletically in order to grow spiritually” and wonder if there might be a third option.
I split this interview up into two parts as Nick gave me a lot of content.
