On today’s show, I have Paul Meier, who is a Former Lutheran Pastor located in Eastern Kentucky.
This episode is probably one of my favorites because our conversation took an unexpected turn. As Paul was talking about how he was led to work in ministry later in life, we discussed what later led him out of the ministry. One of those reasons was how his church congregation felt about homosexuality and Christianity.
I think our conversation will surprise and enlighten you and I hope no matter what you feel about this topic that you will open your heart and mind while you listen.
Excited for you to tune in and hope you enjoy!
