Episode details

In this episode, I share a few brief thoughts on the recent reckoning in the Southern Baptist Convention before zeroing in on the truest hope for our times — namely, that God wastes nothing. Even the days which seem impossibly dark and incredibly inefficient are days in which God’s Word abides forever.
