In our increasingly fractured world that's just amped up with reactivity. How can we as pastors and ministry leaders create a calming presence in our churches and in our communities? In this week's conversation on FrontStage BackStage, host Jason Daye is joined by Rich Villodas lead pastor of New Life Fellowship in Queens, New York. Rich has written several books, including Good and Beautiful and Kind, together, Rich and Jason explore nurturing a culture in our churches that provides an alternative to the mean-spiritedness, and divisiveness that we see in the world all around us. Rich also shares some personal practices, including five questions that we can reflect upon in our own lives as pastors and ministry leaders that can help us overcome reactivity, and engage in conversations with people who may not believe as we do.
