Episode 424: Pastor Andy Stanley – When the Church and Politics Collide

What is more fun than politics and faith?! With the midterm elections going on, I’m honored to have Pastor Andy Stanley on the pod today. So much wisdom – he’s just the BEST! I’m so thankful for Pastor Andy and this conversation about choosing friendship and relationship over politics. Friends matter more. Amen. Grab a copy of his incredible book Not In It to Win It and go out and VOTE!
