While Aimee is away, Todd and Carl are feeling pretty empowered to have a free conversation in their “safe space.”

In light of the abhorrent shooting at a Poway, CA synagogue some weeks ago, the guys are pondering the extent of responsibility inherent upon church officers and members to “police” the behavior of other congregants. They also discuss the new areas of concern that social media has created for pastors.

At what point can it be determined that a congregant is crossing the line on social media, requiring some pastoral intervention? Don’t miss this unique opportunity to hear Carl actually complimenting Todd. This may never happen again!
