68 - Faith & Doubt

CXMH 65 (4).jpg

It’s just us, folks. Robert and Holly got together in Atlanta to record this episode in person (the first CXMH episode ever recorded without Skype!). We talk about faith, why we think doubt is a good thing, and what it often looks like to move through our faith lives. We share our own faith journeys, as well as digging into some proposed Stages of Faith progressions.

(Note from Robert: I formally apologize for how much I say ‘like’ in this episode. If it’s any consolation, it probably annoyed me more while I was editing than it will annoy you while listening.)
