The Sermonsmith podcast is no longer in active production, but these helpful conversations are still available for you.

You may enjoy my follow up podcast — Consortio Dei — where I interview spiritual leaders about their rhythms for self care and formation.

Chad Brooks

chadbrooksChad Brooks hosts a few podcasts of his own, so he is no stranger to the process as he joins us from Monroe, LA. Chad tells us why index cards make the best bookmarks, how he gets big on digital and little on paper, and why his preaching pits “What is?” vs. “What could be?”
