Episode 417: Richard Foster and Brenda Quinn on the Connection Between Patience, Humility, and the Lakota Calendar

We have such a special show for you today! I got to talk with one of my heroes, Richard Foster, and his friend and fellow pastor Brenda Quinn. Richard’s new book Learning Humility uses the Lakota calendar as a framework for this study on the virtue of humility. IT’S FASCINATING! What an inspiring  conversation about slowing down enough to be available to God, coming to God as who you already are, and one of our favorite topics – prayer.

Due to some technological challenges, this episode’s audio isn’t typical TSF quality. We’re sorry about that, but we still wanted to bring you this great conversation!
