  1. Thanks for your well-reasoned take on this – I always appreciate the lightness with which you handle heavy topics. This episode reminded me of ‘The Journals of Jim Elliot’ – a wonderful example of someone putting all their trust in the One who has proclaimed victory.

    1. I really appreciate your comment, Ben. That was totally what we were trying to do — provide balance. And I also thought of Jim Elliot in this context. Thanks for listening!

  2. You two do a stellar job in choosing these topics! It’s so insightful and encouraging! It really helps me to think about some tough issues!
