Loneliness, marathon ministry, and preaching Christ crucified.

Ministry Minded, Episode 80.

In this edition of the Ministry Minded Podcast, I spent some time reflecting on last week’s sermons, which included themes of God’s answer to loneliness and God’s grace for sell-outs. I also share an encouraging passage on preaching Christ crucified.
