Such needed discussions!

Grateful for the opportunity to learn from some folks thinking and studying and offering fresh voices to conversations that most often come up lacking inside and outside the church.

Jay Kieve ,

Yes, finally!!!!

The healthy integration of mind, body, spirit, faith, and relationship present in Touch Podcast just might save a generation of Christians from shame, guilt, and abuse. This is great work!!!
