Season 9: Episode 10 | Spiritual Transformation For the Sake of Others

What is spiritual transformation—really? How can we move from the false self to the true self in Christ? Is it possible to talk about sin without being judgmental? What is the relationship between personal spiritual formation and our mission in the world? Listen in as Robert Mulholland and Ruth Haley Barton discuss these questions and share stories of their own journeys of transformation in Christ. This is a recording from 2015 and was the last time Ruth spent with Bob before his death from cancer. We are closing this season for now, but intend to do more  “Ruth and Friends” in the future. Don’t miss the announcement of what in store for Season 10 of the Strengthening the Soul of Your Leadership podcast.
