As of release, Ryan is on his way to Accra Ghana to serve with The Pearl House. As he flies, he gets ready to engage in a mission trip that has sustainability. But are all mission trips created equal, or are some excuses to travel to other countries under the guise of mission trips. Ryan and Phillip discuss the difference between engaging in mission, and engaging in tourism.
The quadrennial celebration of summer olympics is in full swing. Ryan and Phillip talk about the amazing feats that they've seen during these games. More importantly, they connect the display of excellence and what it means for the church.
Ryan and Phillip are joined by friends Debbie Hogue-Downing and Sean Cummings to discuss the convention season craziness. While Sean was on the ground in Cleveland, Debbie was on the convention floor in Philadelphia. What happened behind the scenes? What was the mood like? What encouraged you/disturb you? All of these questions were answered by our special guests. The key takeaway was that although there were four distinct individuals around the microphone with four distinct ideas on politics, but we were able to have a conversation that respected each other views and respected each other's humanity.
