I like it. Mostly because I'm hosting it. Of course, there a few things that need fixing (but I'm working on it... I promise). We're trying our best to chat with kidness, love intentionally, approach each other and see where the conversation goes. Drop the stones and join us. Hugs!
Great podcast :)
Greetings from Puerto Rico. Thought-provoking and refreshing at the same time. Thank you!
Honest, fun, & engaging faith conversations
I feel like I am sitting over a meal with new friends learning about their lives - discussing the raw weighty ideas and questions they have encountered in their journey. Carlos approaches challenging and relevant topics with a down to earth curiosity, kindness, and sense of humor that is approachable. The conversations make me want to learn more and better understand (even befriend) those who may have a different perspective than my own.
