  1. I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to the Love Thy Neighborhood podcast, I think you all do a phenomenal job sharing the heart of the Gospel through others and really cut through the visage of cultural Christianity. The stories I’ve heard have been both heartbreaking and healing; the people sharing their stories are incredibly brave and incredibly vulnerable – two key things that the world needs to see more of from Christians – and I love that they got there by means of others showing them grace and mercy.
    Thank you for all you’re doing behind the scenes to make this podcast possible. I will certainly be praying for y’all and spreading the word!
