Strengthening the Soul of Your Leadership with Ruth Haley Barton

Season 13: Episode 4 | Invitations from God: Invitation to Practice the Presence of People

July 14, 2021

This week Ruth and Adele are breaking down the invitation to practice the presence of people. What does it mean to “shine your face upon someone” and why is our physical presence so important? Listen as Ruth and Adele tackle the notion of “relationship quotas” and share their thoughts on how to respond to this invitation in relationships that have been fractured by all that has happened during the last year and a half.
