Ep. 145: Generational Differences, Not Fitting In, & Waiting on God
It's another late one where we dive into thoughts around a text highlighting generational differences with technology, this leads to wondering if we'll ever fit in at our church as Molly reflects on some music by Sandra McCracken. We close those with discussion around anxiety, waiting on God and philosophical work on Science and Intelligent Design. Lots of goodies linked in the show notes!
