PC Button

This week Tom had the opportunity to meet with Richard Jacobson, of the Unchurching podcast and author of the book by the same name. While the name of the book may be provocative, Richard assures us that he is not anti-church. Through his writing, speaking and art, he articulates his love for the church. He advocates for a genuine expression of the ecclesia as described in the scriptures –where the church is not just a place that people gather, but IS the people who gather.
