  1. Awesome content, did I miss episode 2 somehow?

    It is a bit sad to see how the strong mighty has now fallen, church needs to evolve on social, spiritual, and intellectual fronts to stay relevant… it’s lagging.

    Even strong new converts are dropping out and choosing not to stay active. Somethings needs to give, and this time it’s the church. Hopefully, sooner than later.

  2. That was the best ex-mo podcast ever made in Idaho whilst driving a truck.

  3. Thanks, I am enjoying your work so far.

    If I can say something a little bit negative (but I have positive intentions) – please do a bit of editing before you publish. Listening to you sneezing was a low point for me. I struggled to not turn it off. 🙂
