Tune in as Pastor Mark interviews two new clergy persons, Reverend Laura Steele from Hopewell United Methodist Church and Reverend Michael Anthony Howard of Brooke Side Community Church, a United Church of Christ congregation. We talk about the joys and challenges of new ministry, how one is “called” by God to be a minister, and about how new clergy adapt to their new congregational settings. Listen as we discuss some of the greatest challenges facing the United Methodist Church today, including heated denominational debates over the inclusion of Lesbian, Gay, Transgender, Intersex, and Allied persons in the life of the Christian church. And listen as we discuss how recent seminary graduates learn to interpret the Bible in new and inspiring ways.
