Enjoyed!

A great convo with Cole Arthur Riley! The questions are thoughtful. The conversation is relaxed and relational. The topic spoke into the realities of the world today- especially for people of faith, faith leaders and theologians of any kind. Thank you for bringing real people with authentic stories and topics that are relevant to the platform.

For the curious spiritual wanderer

Come and sit for a moment, be ready to recharge, dig in and open your heart. Listening gives you a feeling that you’re part of a circle of thoughtful wanderers who believe that knowing the world is best part of being in the world.
