Church And Main Shorts

I really like the option of a Church & Main Short. I don’t always have time for a full episode, and I really dislike listening to only partial podcasts. So knowing you’ll have these available I’ll check back when I only have 10 or so minutes and check one out!

Keep up the great work, Dennis!

Great conversations

Dennis is a very smart guy and a clear thinker. I appreciate his voice and this podcast.

Thoughtful, interesting, insightful.

In these conversations with his knowledgeable guests, Dennis Sanders brings his unique insights and experience to the table without domineering the discussion. The rapport he has with his guests helps keep your attention as you consider new ideas, even arriving at an “Ah-ha!” or an “I hadn’t thought of it that way” moment. His blend of the socio/political and theological is a welcome, sensible voice.
