Ep. 74 : Tackling Big Topics: The future of Church, LGBTQ+ and Faith with pastor Bill Town‪e

In a world with so many unknowns and shades of gray, leadership hard. Everyone has an opinion and leaders are just humans who have said yes to the call. The Living Wholehearted Podcast brings leaders in the home, work, and community honest conversations and practical tools to help with the people issues keeping leaders up at night. After reflecting on a year of living and leading through a global pandemic, the Mattsons wanted to address two important relevant questions: 1) What does the future of the church look like in the months and years ahead? 2) What is the church’s right response to the LGBTQ+ community and those trying to grow in their faith journey? Our guest, Pastor Bill Towne, helps unravel what’s at the heart of each of these questions. Whether you agree with Bill or not, he shares some incredibly loving and insightful wisdom, so listen in! It’s far too easy for any parent to get caught up in the non-essentials and more often than not, there is a marker in all our stories and that helps us recognize what really matters. Crystal shares the 6 keys to communicating well with your children and offers many other insightful tools to help you raise children who know they are loved. Read More
