Will be listening in every week!
Really valuable insights shared by many pastors across the Sydney region, which are hard to find elsewhere.
Dominic is a great interviewer, and I am looking forward to where this podcast will go. I have listened to similar things from the US, but this home grown series will be fantastic. (Can be tough to download though as they are often appearing episodes but not downloadable which makes it tough at times) this downloading issue continues each week for some reason....
Fantastic to hear these in depth interviews about various ministry topics in our context - ones we frequently neglect to devote much time to but are ALWAYS there. Helping me wrestle with How I can be like Jesus more and more in my relationships.
