    Staying In the Racial Justice Conversation with Chuck Mingo & Troy Jackson - Episode 895

    Staying In the Racial Justice Conversation with Chuck Mingo & Troy Jackson - Episode 895

    Over the years, there have been been so many friends of the show that have graciously helped us navigate real issues in our culture, especially, in our churches. We know racial division is a prevalent issue in the Church and the world today, yet God has promised us a unified future. Chuck Mingo and Troy Jackson are the founders of UNDIVIDED, an organization built to unite and ignite people for racial healing. And today we get to talk about it. In their new book, Living Undivided, Chuck and Troy invite readers to take action in the story of reconciliation that God is writing. Y’all, this book is a really helpful roadmap for reconciliation and healing and I think you're going to find this conversation thought-provoking and beneficial as we celebrate Juneteenth this week.

    How to Share Your Faith with Willie Robertson - Episode 894

    How to Share Your Faith with Willie Robertson - Episode 894

    Y’all, I’m so excited for you to hear this one…especially as we head into Father’s Day weekend! One of our favorite friends (and Dads!), Willie Robertson is in the studio talking all about sharing your faith, connecting people to the Bible, and why we love Nashville. Although Willie might be best known as a member of the Duck Dynasty, he is most passionate about his role as a Gospeler. Over the years, he has shared the Good News of Jesus with others and he encourages us to do the same in this brand new book, Gospeler. It’s such a helpful resource as we keep stretching and growing in how we share the gospel and talk about our faith.
    I loved how the book of Acts weaved through this entire conversation! Check out our Let's Read the Gospels series about the book of Acts on our Spotify Playlist.

    AFD in NYC Episode 8: Summer Sabbath In The City

    So, here’s where I left you in November. I knew, part way through my time here last fall, that I wasn’t done yet. That God wasn’t done yet. That this story wasn’t done yet.
    If you have thoughts to share, there’s a great place for that on instagram… @thatsoundsfunpodcast. I’d love to hear anything that came up for you in this episode and any suggestions of topics you’d like to hear future episodes about.

My favorite podcast ❤️

I discovered Annie in 2019 during a summer enneagram series, and I’ve never looked back! I look forward to her podcasts each week. I love hearing her interview artists, celebrities, theologians, authors, etc. Listening to her interviews feels like listening to a friend talk, and I love how she’s authentically herself! My life has been changed because of this show, specifically because of episodes 304 and 464!

Highlight every week!

Every time there’s a new episode, it’s the highlight of my week! Annie is one of the best interviewers I’ve listened to, and I’ve learned so much from this podcast.
