024. An Interview with Virginia Ward: "The Importance of A Widely Informed Faith"
Show Notes

It was an honor and extremely fun for Andrea Lewis and me to interview Dr. Virginia Ward.  She is my friend, colleague, steward of urban theology and a respected leader in Boston.  

In this faith-building interview, we will hear Virginia's early days of faith development and consider the importance of:

  • Proactively establishing varied spiritual disciplines.
  • Exposing yourself to all "streams" of Christianity, through reading, experiencing, listening,   and uniting in prayer
  • Pain and Suffering in spiritual formation
  • Suspending stereotypes around ethnicity and race and listening well

    I am confident you will learn, and be encouraged and challenged by this podcast!
