Today’s episode is a conversation with Rev. Dr. Jason Byassee, Butler Chair in Homiletics & Biblical Interpretation at Vancouver School of Theology. We talk about how the church can stay deeply rooted in church history and tradition, and adapt to the world today The interview was recorded in October, and  much has changed since then, but I’m confident you will find Jason’s insights to be quite relevant as we continue to adapt our churches to the realities of a pandemic.
