These are some of the ideas and concepts discussed in this episode. I (Jeff) edited this episode tonight, March 10, 2015. Now, you must understand, I was involved in this conversation with Bill, just yesterday afternoon.
Yet, as I listened through this episode to edit it, it was like I was hearing this for the first time. God spoke to me through Bill's words. Bill Thrall, in this conversation, cuts right down to the roots of who we are as Christians and pastors. It doesn't get much more real, much more gut level, than this conversation.
THIS IS FOR YOU...
Jonny and I are so excited to share this SOLID GOLD material with you, Pastor! Most of our episodes you could listen to while doing other things like driving, exercising, etc. This episode would be one where you could just sit with a notepad and jot down reflections as you listen.
This could be a life changer for you Pastor. We love you. We want you to be healthy, whole, and strong. Listen, enjoy, and may God use this in your heart, life, and ministry.
The perspectives and ideas were so deep in this episode, I did have to stop and just takes notes of what was said. I loved his breakdown of the disconnect between the "gray hairs" (his words, not mine), and the younger generation. I think he was spot on. Thanks for sharing his wisdom and ideas with us!

I loved what Bill had to say about the area of 'trust issues'. For me this really hit home because, I am a pastor and YES I have major 'trust' issues. Much of this stems from my childhood but some even stems from being attacked in a previous appointment (UMC lingo). Someone I thought I could trust turned on me and it ended up in a major verbal altercation to which I still have trouble putting behind me. I think for us as pastors being vulnerable is one of the most dangerous but necessary things we can do. But I guess my question is this, to what extent do we become vulnerable and open? My wife often tells me I sometimes share too much, that I need to keep some things about my past to myself. While I understand she just wants to try and protect me, I sometimes see it as a way to connect with folks on a deeper level. I am right or is she right or is there a balance we need to find?
