The creator of this podcast is a gifted media storyteller and a blessing to the UMC. With this podcast, I trust we will continue to experience something special...and hope he continues to spin out more opportunities to hear voices in ministry—in the center and on the edge—that desperately need to be heard.
Thoughtful and fair minded
The bishops’ preferred One Church Plan is a moderate compromise, and this podcast reflects that. It is informative and unbiased and the bishops’ commentary adds a lot of insight into what is on their hearts.
