Honesty & Transparency wrapped in a Love for All

The Fairly Spiritual Show offers a safe space for followers of Jesus; young, old, mature, and new believers — as well as doubters! — to come and experience the Truth of God’s holy Word. He teaches gently and honestly, sharing his own struggles, in an attempt to bring us into community with Jesus Christ and each other. A humble, inspiring teacher, Doug’s instruction is a reasoning melody in a world dominated by dogmatic horn-blasts and sound bites.

Warm, honest, lovely podcast

Doug Bursch is about as sincere and caring as they come. He will challenge you to think about an issue thru the lens of Jesus and always with the purpose of growth as the foundation. If you are in a place where you have been hurt by the church, this is a safe space for you.

He also regularly reminds me that we are here to be in community with one another, we are the body of Christ, and together we function - not always perfectly - for His glory.
