Episode 33 - Underground Saints

IMG_0723.JPG

It is one thing to preach at a funeral. It is quite another thing to preach the sermon at your own funeral. In this episode Reid talks with Brent Malcolm about the experience of having his Father’s own sermon be what guided his own memorial.

We invite each of you to listen to the sermon included here mid-podcast entitled “Our Death Benefits” and consider your own destiny in Christ or without him. We exhort and encourage each of you to put your faith and trust in Christ and be able to face your own mortality and say “for me to live is Christ, to die is gain!”
