The love that never ends…

We are all searching. This podcast connects listeners to that search in a contemporary way. The creators define their target audience as Gen Z and I believe they are accurate in their assessment. As a target of their secondary audience, I am excited about this tool to use as support for others I might encounter. I taught religious education for several years long ago and wish I had access to a mission like this at that time! This is so much a part of the new evangelization! Bravo!
