Blessed

Each episode of Conversing is a thoughtful narrative gift. Mark and his guests bless me with their thoughtful discussions, their intellect, and their insights. I leave each episode restored and refreshed in my faith…deeply grateful for Fuller, technology, and podcasts. Thank you to all who participate in and produce this podcast.

Grateful

I stumble upon these episodes at exactly the right time they are needed. I have been challenged and illuminated with every listen. I am grateful that such time and care is given to each conversation to hear engaging, diverse voices and topics that are intentionally relevant.

Just more navel gazing by straight people at Fuller

Hey Fuller, it’s time to accept that LGBT people exist. ONE HUNDRED episodes, and not one mentions Queer issues. Then again, Fuller doesn’t even allow Queer people to attend the school. These are just more podcasts that keep Fuller students and listeners ignorant of the real world.
