We talk a lot on the podcast about love, but what does love really look like? And are we really supposed to love everyone?
Today Jonny is joined by his wife (and recurring guest) Kayla as shes talks about her work with Preemptive Love and what it means to love anyway. Kayla has been hard at work producing the new Preemptive Love podcast--aptly named "Love Anyway"--and shares stories from the upcoming season. This episode will challenge you to think about people in your own community who God is calling you to love, and hopefully encourage you with the knowledge that God is already out in front of you loving them.
Pastor, isn't it true that while we are helping others, our own souls are crying out within us, "HELP ME!! I'M THE ONE WHO NEEDS HELP! WHO'S GOING TO HELP ME?!"
In Episode 320 Jeff shares some of his own personal learnings from the past six months, and challenges our listeners to live their lives and not allow themselves to get sucked dry by ministry. He also encourages pastors to take next steps if they find themselves drowning in lies, secrets, discouragement, depression, porn, an affair, gambling, drinking, or overeating.
There is help for the hurting pastor, and Jeff encourages them to take the next step to find it.
Life is too short to live a lie. Especially in ministry.
Henty is an Executive Assistant to Pastor Rick Warren at Saddleback Church and he shares a peek into his world, and through him, into the world of Saddleback's ministry, and Rick's ministry as well. Henty is a sharp young man!
Henty talks about the challenges in the 21st century church, as well as Pastor Rick Warren's heart and burden for pastors of smaller churches.
Jeff and Jonny are both present in this conversation with Henty. Henty is from South Africa and moved to the U.S. as a young teenager.
You'll enjoy him, and this entire episode!
