This is an extra special episode of Pulpit To Pew. Rev. Gibson was visiting Troy, Alabama this Sunday and Johnny was out of pocket. So, we thought this was a great week to share some discussions that didn’t make the last couple of episodes. Beverly and Johnny talk about Paul’s message of unity to the Corinthians and how that relates to the “common ground” and differences of all the Christian denominations. Plus, they share some personal entertaining and inspiring literature and movie recommendations. Enjoy the show and thanks for your support.
