Thoughtful And Encouraging!

Alexis does a wonderful job of creating engaging and enjoyable shows! The episodes that I’ve heard thus far have caused me to think about the topics in fresh ways and have been a genuine encouragement to listen to.

Generosity and Justice

I found this podcast by way of Drew Hart and Brenda Salter McNeil, two social justice promoters whose work I have recently become aware of. Although it may not be addressed here, I’m hoping to discover new ways to being the Body of Christ (“doing justice”) outside of the walls of institutional church-going, if that’s even possible. Thank you, Alexis!
