Season 4: Episode 9 | Finding God in the Crucible of Ministry

This episode begins with a discussion of the kind of lonineless that is probably the hardest for a spiritual leader – when we feel God is against us. Moses’ story in Exodus 33 has a lot to teach us. If you have ever doubted God’s goodness to you because of the personal cost of ministry to yourself or maybe those close to you, you’ll want to listen to the conclusion to Season 4 and discover what really is the promised land. A touching word from Ruth about ending well and what legacy means for the spiritual leader who finds freedom.
