I just became aware of this podcast from Mockingbird and gave it a listen. Jake and Aaron break down the lectionary passages with humor, much knowledge, and grace. And it is the grace note in every detail that rings clearly. I'm listening.
Aaron and Jake
are a fantastic duo. Would love to hear Aaron sing more, but an easy 5 stars!!
