Welcome back to the PFA podcast. Thank you to those who returned and welcome to those who are new.
In this episode, we sat down with Pastor Lawrence Scott to discuss where LeBron might go or not go to kick it off. We go from there to looking at how he leads a politically diverse flock without alienating different groups with a look at why political leaders and faith-folks choose politics over religion.
We close the episode with the forever touchy topic of church finances. Pastor Lawrence gives his insight as to whether churches really need to be tax-free, what keeps him from dipping improperly into the church funds, how churches could/should handle money, and much more.
