Ep. 38 – Quarterly Series Introduction

Nathan Brown, Lisa Diller, and Jeff Boyd introduce a new series on justice and mercy following the SDA Quarterly.

This episode is an introduction to the special series that we’ll be posting over the next three months—July through September 2019. Each week we will be sharing a conversation to accompany the Quarterly lesson study guide, which is titled “The Least of These.”

Nathan Brown, Lisa Diller, and Jeff Boyd will be co-hosting this series, and most episodes will also feature a special conversation partner.

Nathan wrote both the lesson study and the companion book for this quarter, so it’s great to have him as a central figure in this series. This project grew out of a conversation we had about his book Engage, which was back in episode 24
