Reverend? Recruiter? Disciple!!!!
I know these young pastors from their time at seminary. It was such a joy to listen as they find ways to interact with each other and the text. I really appreciated they way they invited me to participate in that interaction with the text. So thankful for young Pastors willing to continue to find ways to interact in community after seminary. Several highlights:
A. I was so pleased they talked about what they were reading. Keep reading new and different stuff and then read old stuff and remember.
B. I liked the section where they talked about their seminary NT professors insights on the Olympics. They know why 😉!
C. One of them stoped to explain what a DS was. That was a great way to think critically about your audience. I know what a DS and most of the people that went to seminary where I went knows what a DS is but it was smart to stop and say "this is what a DS is." It just shows they are thoughtful about making sure terms are defined.
Overall I thought this was a great podcast. I will certainly keep listening to it on those days I commute to work and need something to listen to that edifies the soul.
