Another Great Episode

I feel like I say to myself enough that I should say it to you Brock. The interview with Chris Broussard was yet another in a long list of episodes that both encouraged and confirmed my faith. Anyone who is wondering what real Christianity looks and sounds like, take a listen and be blessed. Thanks brother!
