Welcome. I am Jimmy Humphrey. I am curiously evangelical, politically homeless, and a dreamer of small things. On this podcast, I am having conversations about the intersection of faith, life, and culture. So if you have honest questions, aren't afraid to have difficult conversations, and want to have a little fun along the way, then pull up a chair— this podcast is for you.

Watching America “Die By Suicide” – Episode #94
Abraham Lincoln predicted that America would not fall as the result of an external foe, but by suicide. The outcome of the 2020 election appears to be our possible suicide pact.
