In this episode David, Ben, and Luke discuss the idea of a “calling.” What does it mean to be called by God? Are there dangers in misunderstanding this loaded Christian phrase, and how do we discern what we are actually called to do?

  • Episode 157: Should Followers of Jesus Be Watching Game of Thrones?
