    Let's Talk About Faith & Politics

    Let's Talk About Faith & Politics

    In today's conversation we explore how individuals balance their personal world views with creating public policy and enforcing governance over a diverse population of people.  

    The discussion is bit from our different from our usual format. Originally we had 3 guests from different backgrounds and locations lined up to record, unfortunately, 2 of them had to cancel at the last minute.  Instead of canceling the show, we adjusted a bit and had more of a traditional 1:1  interview with our remaining guest, Gerald. 
    While it wasn't what we had originally planned, I'm grateful that Gerald agreed to stick around and continue the conversation with me.
