Are there certain questions you don’t feel like you can ask in church about the Bible?

On this episode, Heather sits down with Andrew Farley, a pastor and radio show host, to ask questions he often gets during his live radio show every night about the Bible. Andrew believes in grace, freedom, and the New Covenant. If you have felt that religion offered you very little grace or freedom and didn’t talk very much about the beauty of the New Covenant, today’s episode is for you.

Heather also sits down with Brady Shearer for your social toolkit. Brady Shearer is the director of Pro Church Tools and church software platform Nucleus. He helps churches navigate the biggest communication shift in 500 years.
