Life in Community

The Price of Freedom Is Loneliness

October 20, 2017 by

On this week's Life Together podcast Bernard, Marianne, and Peter start by discussing freedom in the context of relationships and church community. They move on to two listeners' questions: how the Bruderhof vow of poverty works and a question about the epidemic of homelessness in the United States. Then, a conversation on the great composers and the role of great music in worship.
