CRUX EPISODE 64 - Honor Among Pastors

Ronald Reagan had the 11th commandment for conservatives. Is there a similar standard of conversation among pastors? How do we treat each other? How do we speak about one another to the laity? Is that somehow different from what we do and how we should speak as Christians anyways? Listen in as Scott and Todd try to get at this good question in episode 64 of The Crux of the Matter.

John us for Episode 61 of The Crux of the Matter, hosted by Todd Peperkorn and Scott Stiegemeyer.
