Thanks for wide range of guests

I really appreciate the wide range of guests from the Christian community. I started listening when my sister forwarded me the Annie F Downs and a really appreciated the attention to Singles which I’ve found to be very neglected in the church. I greatly appreciate the attention to our difficulties in the church that are often neglected.

I also found your recent talk on toxic people in your organization. As a group leader who recently had experience with a toxic co-leader, I found that episode and the 1on1 guide helpful for assessing future leaders and in my leadership.

I’ve been going through many other of the episodes and I really have appreciated the wide range of guests from people I might have some issues with to others that I really resonate with, but all the episodes I’ve listened to have been great and is good to hear different perspectives in the faith.

Thank you for your work in building up leadership in the Church!

Consistently Great

I’m amazed at the quality of guests. Carey is a master listener. I’m a leader. I keep coming back to this podcast. William Ury podcast was 🤯

Awesome

The talk with William Ury was a breath of cool fresh air in a place of steamy hot culture war. 100% recommend. Blessed are the peace makers!
