“The God Whisperers” has become one of my favorite podcasts lately. This one is two Lutheran pastors out of California (kinda like the Car Talk guys) who talk about Christian theology, faith, and culture from a distinctly Lutheran perspective, and have massive amounts of fun and craziness along the way. This is very much to be expected, since they are from California.
In this episode they are joined by special guest Rev. Tom Brashears, a Lutheran pastor whose unique background gives him insight into the business aspects of leading a church. Brashears discusses issues such as why people are averse to the idea of running church like a business, why committee meetings over seemingly unimportant issues sometimes become crazy contentious, and how to run a church well without having it turn into something Rick Warren would do.
