Needed topics, great guys
This is crucial conversation right now and these dudes are great
Lacking depth and diversity
This podcast and so much potential and I believe heart behind it BUT the way the hosts talk about the church is a boys club of cool kids and if you have the right celebrity pastor friends you’re doing work for the kingdom. This podcast is missing the voices of female ministers and ministers of color and the voices of those who do not run mega churches (aka most ministers in America). I believe in the power of the church and this podcast could do such a better job of reminding us of that. God doesn’t just use mega churches and we need to hear those stories.
The episode regarding worship was incredibly intentional, thoughtful, and a great resource to encourage dialog! As a worship leader I greatly appreciated the conversation and look forward to future episodes!! Thank you!
