Trials, ordination, and the mechanics of faith.

Ministry Minded, Episode 79.

In this edition of the Ministry Minded Podcast, you’re welcomed back to “Pastor Brad’s Corner” as I reflect on last weekend’s ordination service for my friend Caleb and the significance of that moment in light of what he and his family have endured the last few years. I chew on some thoughts relating to the subject of suffering and also talk about the movie ‘Tenet’.
