The Scandal of Particularity

Perhaps my favorite episode to date!! Great reflections and applicable learnings. Humility and teachability for preacher and congregants alike. Thank you for your ongoing work!

Good podcast, poor volume control

I like this podcast for the information & insights on the scripture. However, the one speaker is too loud & close to the mic, & the other speaker is too soft & further from the mic. It’s aggravating to change the volume so much on my earphones.
