Unbiased, unapologetic and authentic
This podcast is so dope! I appreciate the research, study, prayer and obedience that’s goes into each recorded segment. I always think to myself, “I wish he teach online courses!” Should you decide to do that.... you have at least one student! Thankful for this podcast! Keep bringing it.
Just learned of your podcast and listened to the one on the Black Church. I am sorry that you omitted both Black Catholics and Episcopalians. While I grew up what is now United Methodist, I attended a Black Catholic school. There is still a Black parish near where I was employed. Also when one of my uncle relocated years ago, there were no Black Methodist Church in the city, he became Episcopal. I have also visited Episcopal parishes in other cities.Another uncle was an AME pastor and other than the name, nothing seem different from the Methodist Church I attended. While doing my study of the Black Rural Church, I found they embraced all of the doctrines of the Methodist. They however are free. Keep up the good work and I plan to listen more.
I just found out about the podcast when I heard Pastor Erron on Pass the Mic à few days ago. The topics and the sincere delivery is what makes me want to hear more. Keep it up!
