“Being busy doesn’t mean you are being effective. The calendar can be packed, but that doesn’t mean that we’re actually creating a change in our environments.”
Hello everyone! Welcome back to the #iNGREDiENTS podcast!
In Episode 006, I finish up my discussion with my dear friend Pastor Samuel Reyes. I am so grateful that Sammy trusted me and our audience enough to be so transparent & open with us about his journey. You do not want to miss Part Two of our discussion, so dive in! If you haven’t listened to Episode 005 yet (part one), I encourage you to do so now, and then come back and check the conclusion of our discussion out.
In this Episode, Sammy shares some practical advice for folks who may be considering “un-plugging.” Sammy also spends some time talking about how important his wife Gloriam has been to his journey. I asked Sammy his thoughts on what it means to be authentic, and how we can become more real in the church setting. Lastly, Sammy shares some information regarding what he is doing now and what there is in store for the future. You definitely want to make sure you catch this!
Also, I end this episode with a postscript that goes into further detail regarding how an incident that I shared with Sammy during part one (involving a pastor in Puerto Rico) ultimately ended up being resolved. As I will mention in further detail during that postscript, I always want to make sure that the purpose & goal of this endeavor is clear – and it is never to demean or slander anyone. I will always strive to keep it real on #iNGREDiENTS, but I never want that realness to be confused with “meanness.”
Follow Sammy on Instagram: @Sammyereyes. He will keep you updated on his upcoming events and speaking engagements there. You can also check out some of Gloriam’s amazing poetry on Instagram here: @Gloriampoetry.
