Cutting Edge Church Work

Labberton is an excellent interviewer and his interests cross boundaries all over the Christian world both geographically and intellectually. Technology, justice, theology, the future of church practice - it’s all here. Pick and choose your interests but I listen to every one. One of my top podcasts.

I look forward to every new episode and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a podcast with deep theology that encourages thoughtful spiritual growth.
