In this episode, we talk with our colleague Michael Vinson from Arkansas. He is funny, he is wise, and he is the first genuine contact minister that we know of (second is Anna Caroline’s mum). He shares his experience with faith communities that light up by working the Genuine Contact approach, and he shares how much the genuine contact beliefs put in practice are shocking yet aligned with the beliefs of the people he works with. In this episode we speak at length about the inner work he speaks about the value of having a spiritual director - you can call it spiritual mentor - and make sure you have daily practices: to be grounded and in balance in order to be in service to others in constantly changing times.
