Adam recently asked me to start a podcast with him. My first reaction was “HA! In what time?” Our lives are full to the brim, and starting a podcast hasn’t even been on my radar. But through some convincing from Adam and encouragement from others, I began to realize this could be a valuable ministry and way to encourage others with truth and gospel hope. So, here we are. We’ve recorded our first episode!
We discuss the reason, purpose and hopes for our podcast. Then, we move on to the main topic of this episode: Christmas (even though it’s Thanksgiving week…sorry)! We talk about practical ways to exalt Christ in our own hearts and in our families during the Advent season and why this is vitally important in a culture of distraction.
We hope you’ll listen, comment your thoughts, and share with someone who might be encouraged or challenged! The Glass House will be coming to iTunes soon.
