When one of the worst things that you could ever imagine, actually happens to you - what do you do?! When it happens and you're a father, pastor, and seminary professor - how do you handle it?! When it threatens your job, your career, and everything you've worked for - how do you respond?! And when you want to take responsibility for your actions and your future - what are your next steps?!
Dr. Brian Russell arrived at just such a moment in his life in 2010, and in this episode he and Jeff have a conversation about it. Brian shares openly, and even painfully, about his journey, and provides hope to others going through similar pain, suffering, and struggle. What Brian has to say helps all pastors to understand better how to minister to those living their worst days - and how to handle tragedy when it arrives on their doorstep.
We are happy to share this episode with you, for your encouragement and, God willing, your thriving.
