Excellent leadership episode

I have come to love “think biblically”. thoughtful, respectful and allowing room for disagreement. Always turning us back to God. I just finished listening to the May 28 episode on people – first leadership. One of the best short leadership trainings I have ever heard and I plan to share it with many people.

I love the regular podcast and the discussions on culture. It challenges me to think biblically.

Thought provoking

I like this podcast. Usually I agree with the hosts. Once when I didn’t agree with the special guest Preston Sprinkle, I sent in a letter to the show hosts. Their admin assistant who vets the letters to the editor did not like my opinion and sent me four argumentative emails including one with a guilt trip. I thought that was unprofessional.
