Have enjoyed Scott’s podcast and banter with his guests. It’s now part of my regular prep to get me thinking about the next weeks sermon and generate idea! Keep up the good work, Scott! (And did I mention the cheeky bump music?)
I feel like I got all of the attention when you went solo without a guest this week. You were very deliberate and thorough with the readings.
Your show is my favorite and I never miss one. Thanks for the weekly inspiration.
For those who approach the week ahead with dread for fear there is nothing to be said - a reminder, the Word is alive! Not dead.
Thanks for a great podcast!
