88. The Border Church, with Seth Clark
The Border Church is a beautiful and prophetic expression of border resistance as followers of Jesus in San Diego, California, join together at the border with Jesus-followers in Tijuana, Mexico--even sharing Communion through the border fence.
In this episode, I’m speaking with Seth Clark, Director of the Pastoral Team forThe Border Church.
