So enriching

This is a wonderful way to spend a bit more time with the Sunday readings. I really enjoy hearing several people’s perspectives — it really broadens my appreciation and engagement. Thank you for carrying out this ministry!

It was an honor (both times) to be a guest on this wonderful podcast - truly a great resource for homily prep.

Even as a guest, I felt inspired, challenged, intrigued by the input all the speakers. May the production team and host rest in the blessed assurance that they are planting beautiful hermeneutical seeds!

Keep on keeping on!

Advent Readings Discussion Resonating

Each of the guests has something truly prophetic to say and point to in these conversations. Looking at these readings through the lenses of each of these preacher’s experiences especially during this time of pandemic has been a balm for my weary soul. Thank you.
