    16: Meant for More

    16: Meant for More

    “You know that being meant for more means so much more than filling your life with mere matter, with material things, with stuff and possessions and power and pleasures and treasures. No. It means investing in those things that really matter, those things that last, like relationships and integrity and the personal touch and faith. It means valuing others because we never know when the next moment might be the last moment.” – Rev. John A. Nunes, author of ‘Meant for More.’
    John Arthur Nunes, Ph.D., is a Lutheran pastor and the president of Concordia College—New York, a small Christian college with a diverse and global student body. Previously, John served as the President and CEO of Lutheran World Relief (Baltimore) and as a professor at Valparaiso University.

Inspiring and Refreshing

This is a unique podcast. I found it refreshing to hear conversations of the good found in people and not the negative usually espoused. Touching stories of compassion and inspiring human achievement and empathy in our communities. Thank you for this.
