Terrific stories, insight, and conversations covering a wide range of fascinating topics. Highly recommended!
It's always helpful to see things from another perspective than one's own. Phil Vestal is very deliberate in compiling stories and storytellers whose experience may be different from the mainstream. What a great tool for seeking to understand the world around us and the enormity of what God is doing in it!
Speaking from the heart
Phil is truly an amazing speaker. He has this wonderful ability to take deep, heavy topics and word them in a way so that everyone can understand. He's certainly not afraid to speak from his heart and his messages are powerful. As someone who has grown up a Christian and has felt like they know the Bible well, Phil has a new approach and I find myself having a new realization within each episode! His series on revelation is so thought provoking and I can't wait to hear more!!!! Truly a gifted speaker Phil Vestal!!
