What happens when we are called by God to live out the Gospel message in the world? Big questions don't always require big answers. It's about loving people; all people.

In this episode, Bishop Wright has a conversation with Bishop Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows, 11th Bishop of the Diocese of Indianapolis. They discuss the calling to serve Jesus by serving one another, the notion of radical love, and Bishop Jennifer's own conversion story. *spoiler alert, she wasn't baptized as a baby*

Bishop Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows, a native of New York City, holds a bachelor’s degree in architecture with a minor in urban studies from Smith College, an M.A. in historic preservation planning from Cornell University, and an M.Div. degree from Church Divinity School of the Pacific (CDSP) in 1997.
