Over the past few weeks, I have been invited to be on a handful of podcasts. As it happened, all three of the most recent interviews were released on the same day. I wanted to spread them out a bit here so as not to overwhelm you and in hopes of featuring each of the work these folks are doing. This is the third of the three.

I was invited to be a guest on Brian Russell’s Deep Dive Spirituality Conversations podcast. Dr. Russell is Associate Provost at Asbury Theological Seminary, Dean of the Orlando School of Ministry, and Professor of Biblical Studies.

Our conversation focused on two related topics.

First, we discussed the role of small group formation in the history of Methodism and its relevance for today.

Second, we talked about entire sanctification and its connection to pursuing Christ with others.

Readers of this blog know that I am passionate about both of these topics! I hope you enjoy the conversation as much as I enjoyed being part of it.

Check out my conversation with Matt Reynolds of Spirit & Truth and Scott Kisker, which was the first of the three. The second was my conversation with The Weight podcast, hosted by Chris McAlilly and Eddie Rester. It has been a blessing to connect with Wesleyans in Ohio, Mississippi, and Florida over the past few weeks. I hope these conversations are a blessing to you.
