Do I Need to Change My Mind? w/ Ed Uszynski - UNPACKIN' it Podcast

April 9, 2024

Bryce Johnson and guest co-host, Ed Uszynski, unpack how our views on the March Madness tournament have changed over the years... just like how we must change our perspective on things to align more with Christ.


This Week's Questions:


1. When is stubbornness good, and bad?


2. When do we need to realize that our views may need to change on certain topics?


3. How do you realize that the world culture views might not align with God's views and wishes for us?
