#114: Redeeming the time with Pastor Mike Gray.

Listen elsewhere: Anchor / Apple Podcasts / Spotify / Google Podcasts

In this edition of the Ministry Minded Podcast, I get to share a conversation my dad and I were able to have during our recent vacation in South Carolina. He being a pastor as well allows us to share many of the same experiences, spiritually and ministerially. This conversation dives into how churchgoers can find comfort and certainty even in uncertain times. With the bedlam of bad news all around us, how can we “redeem the time” (Eph. 5:16) and live fearlessly with “sound of mind” (2 Tim. 1:7) in these evil days? It really comes back to the simple practice of steadily digesting the certain truth of God’s Word.
