TLD Episode 2: The Problem with Evangelicalism
On Monday, October 23rd of this year, Pastor Gary Held died suddenly at the young age of 61. Everyone will sorely miss him.  Soon, we will be releasing a farewell episode of RGR. But in the meantime, I've gone into the archives to find and release the original show, "The Lutheran Difference," that we started over 16 years ago. That small project led to hundreds of thousands of listens that affected many lives over the years. Goodbye, Pastor. We all miss you already.
