In this episode we welcome author, professor, and practical theologian, Sharon Galgay Ketchum, to discuss her new book, Reciprocal Church: Becoming a Community Where Faith Flourishes Beyond High School.
As two adults who grew up in church, Stephen and I enjoyed discussing everything from the "nones" and the "dones" to the Church as vital, the relationship between the individual and the church, and raising kids in a Christian context today.
Parents, church leaders, pastors, and anyone interested in inter-generational dialog/growth/transformation will enjoy greatly!
