The Art of Godliness, Episode 1: Conflict in the Church

The Art of Godliness

Today I’m beginning something new: a podcast. I’m co-hosting it with Paul Martin who is a close friend and a fellow elder at Grace Fellowship Church. Together we are taking a look at a variety of subjects of relevance to the Christian life. We are beginning in episode one with the tricky subject of conflict resolution, and especially conflict within the church.

Thanks to our sponsor Logos for making this episode possible. Please visit logos.com/challiespodcast to learn about Logos 7 Basic (and download it for free).
