We all are in the middle of new norms, new realities, and having old conversations in new ways. The issues of racial justice have been front and center in our discussions and minds in 2020. And the Church plays a role in that - a huge role.

The Wise Idea Podcast welcomed Bishop Scott Volland to offer his insight, share his story, and gain wisdom on what we are facing today, and more specifically, how he was asked to leave a Pastorate, how he started a church during the pandemic, how his life story has shaped how he sees people and race issues today and the challenges before us, and more importantly, how we move forward.
