I want to be someone who stops bad things from happening in the world. But I want to be more than that, heroes stop bad things from happening prophets are people who call out systems that allow those horrific things to continually happen. What I want to be is someone who stops the obvious things from happening in the first place because the hard work was done to stop that kind of culture to profolate.

Some Resources Mentioned on the Show
Quote by Martin Luther “These are the Scriptures which make fools of all the wise and understanding, and are open only to the small and simple, as Christ says in Matthew 11:25. Therefore dismiss your own opinions and feelings, and think of the scriptures as the loftiest and noblest of holy things, as the richest of mines which can never be sufficiently explored, in order that you may find divine wisdom which God here lays before you in such simple guise as to quench all pride. Here you will find the swaddling clothes and the manger in which Christ lies. — Luther, Luther’s Works, vol. 35: Prefaces to the Old Testament, 236.
In this episode Geoff and Joe talk to Brian Scott. Brian thought he found his passion working for the church as a pastor. However, God was calling him to do something different. After twelve years as a Lutheran Pastor Brian left full time church ministry and started 9 Foot Voice, an independent publishing company.
Brian is also an author. His first book is That Day Great and Terrible. Brian describes the book “Angela is on a never-ending road trip she can’t escape. Kat is the mother of a son whose bizarre behavior fills her with horror. Milton is a teen with nothing to say. And Gabe is a college student searching for glory.
These four lives twist together in a small Minnesota town. As the world begins to fall apart, they must face their darkest sins and brace themselves for the coming of that great and terrible day.”
We hope you enjoy our interview with Brian as much as we did. Thank you for listening to another episode of The 2 Bald Pastors.
