Episode 022 – We’ve Gotten God’s Glory Upside Down

I grew up learning a Christian story that the most important thing was God’s glory. We gave God glory by what we believed, how we behaved, and how we talked about God to other people. Good Christians and Good churches would focus on giving God glory above all else. To kick off season 2 of the podcast, I’m going to share with you how I’m learning we may have misunderstood God’s glory.
