Such a helpful conversation and both as an MK that grew up in Papua New Guinea and a leader in a church thinking about how to teach people how to read the bible (a Bible nerd as you say Tim) this episode seemed to be not to me but for me 😉.

this seems to, then, relate to the podcast discussion re: the term "to bear witness". that'd be a cool discussion to have about the possible relationship between "bearing witness" and the responsibility that comes with "wearing the name of God"
