Listening is edifying to me

This podcast is edifying to anyone. I personally have a lot to learn and Have recently been availing myself to resources of all sorts regarding the topics of division between humans who are created in the image of God. I appreciate this Podcast and recognize that it is labor for those involved to continue sharing their experience. Humbly listening, Melissa Corbett
