That Sounds Fun Podcast Episode 80: Curtis Zackery

on June 1, 2018 in That Sounds Fun Podcast with 3 comments by

Y’all know we love talking about Sabbath around here, and with summer kicking off this week, let’s talk a bit about slowing down and what rest can look like (I bet it’s different than you think). Curtis Zackery, or CZ as we friends call him, has written a new book called Soul Rest all about it. We knock into a lot of topics- church leadership, race, miscarriage, just to name a few- and you’re going to love and respect this pastor, leader, author, and friend by the time we’re done.

    […] picked up Soul Rest after hearing the author (a friend and mentor of Annie Downes) interviewed on That Sounds Fun. I had been feeling frazzled and in need of some deep, soul-level rest of my own, and I wasn’t […]
