Living While You’re Dying Q&R (Live) | Follow Podcast Episode 12

Follow Podcast Episode 12

This is a special live edition of the Follow Podcast. Coming right out of a gathering with guest speaker, Aaron Holbrough (you can watch the full teaching here: shared about his own journey with setbacks and suffering – and how he was able to surprisingly find God profoundly right in the middle of it. We had a chance to follow up that teaching with a Q&R (question and response) to dive deeper into what it means to be Living While You’re Dying.
