Faith and Public Life
This podcast has restored my soul on so many levels. Every conversation has left me with wisdom I continue to think about in my everyday life. Learning to have conversations about humanity, depression, racism, faith, how we take our faith and apply it to the work we do everyday with a fearless heart, etc is imperative in these polarizing times. I love how every conversation circles back fo love. Inclusion makes us stronger.
Good God - always the answer to any question
So refreshing to hear such positive, upbeat, faith centered ideas from two very intelligent gentlemen. Fun to get a different perspective on radio host Gordon Keith. I look forward to upcoming episodes and guests hosted by Dr. Mason, for some more thought provoking conversation. We can use positive input like this in this media driven, bad news cycle we're in!
