Sean McCoy is the host of the Come to the Table Podcast and quickly becoming one of my favorite people. His show is about listening to people with different perspectives he does it well. Sean shares the story of how he grew from agnostic to finding wisdom in Ecclesiastes. We talk about why being dismissive and flippant in our approach to others is damaging to our witness. In the end, we have a great conversation but the best way to get to know Sean is to subscribe to his podcast and start listening.
Please listen and share!
