Lavish Hope

--- Faithward ---

Lavish Hope is about finding inspiration during a time when there are so many challenges, especially for marginalized communities and peoples. On this podcast you’ll uncover the kernel of resilience, the mustard seed of faith, that helps you get back to leading faithfully. Through our featured stories of resilience and overcoming, we hope you find a shared space where leaders can talk about the hard things. We hope you are shaped and transformed by the story. And most importantly, we hope you’re drawn into reflecting upon the narrative that is uniquely and wholly your own.
