In Episode 24, we are joined by Dr. Stephen Goyer, who is one of the more amazing Pastors that I have recently met. Steve received his Doctorate at the Union Theology Seminary in Virginia and was the Minister of a Church in Jacksonville Florida. Although he is officially retired as a Pastor, Steve continues to do incredible work as a spiritual and grief coach to individuals and families. After our interview, I can see why. As Steve and I talked, it became clear that the gratitude with which he lives in his life, is both hard won and at the same time, critical to his ability to help others find that place of gratitude in themselves.
One of my questions to Steve was, given the world that we live in, and the reduced interest in organized religion, what kind of church and ministry does he think we need in order to begin to move beyond the angst, anxiety, and hatred that swirls around us every day.
