2020 has thrown everyone for a loop. So much of what we had planned or worked on was rearranged entirely when the pandemic’s severity began to hit in late February.
Even though the CBF Podcast had numerous interviews recorded with brilliant guests, we adapted to these unusual times by bringing you stories of experts and practitioners as they responded to the pandemic in real-time. As a result, many of our previously recorded interviews went unpublished until now.
To kick off this Season of Giving, the CBF Podcast presents a seven-episode week. Click the links below to hear our interviews with each of these great guests:
- Susan Sparks, Miracle on 31st Street: senior pastor of Madison Avenue Baptist Church, comedian, and author
- Jason Coker, Preaching in the Aftermath of Suicide: national director for Together for Hope and field coordinator of CBF Mississippi
- Nathan Dean, The Song: co-pastor of Edgewood Church and author
- Mary DeMuth, How the Church Responds to the Sexual Abuse Crisis: author, speaker, and podcaster
- Jason Romano, Former ESPN Producer: host and producer of the Sports Spectrum podcast, a contributor to the Sports Spectrum Magazine, and author
- Lynn Casteel Harper, A Theology of Dementia: minister, chaplain, and author
- Lacy Finn Borgo, Spiritual Conversations with Children: spiritual director, professor, coach, and author
