WHAT WE NEED

The show is always hammering out fresh & relevant perspectives - and it’s one of the richest resources coming out of the PCUSA right now. And you don’t have to be Presbyterian or even Christian to relate. I am always learning something & am amazed by how much ground Lee and Simon cover on issues of faith, culture, and social justice. Add to your rotation!
