Richard is a great friend of mine, who you will see looks at life a bit differently to many of us. This makes him so much fun to talk with. It’s also so great to talk with someone who follows God with every bit of energy that he has.
I had invited Richard and his son for dinner and then it occurred to me that we could also include a podcast interview in our evenings activities. Richard enjoyed the hamburgers (as you’ll hear), and I think he enjoyed the interview as well.
I thought I’d leave the beginning of this interview in, instead of editing the unplanned bits out. I have a list of questions on a piece of paper that I use when I interview people, and Richard found that amusing. They were questions that I had prepared earlier — he was hoping I’d have answers that I’d prepared earlier but I figured that was his job.
I think this interview is very encouraging to us all to be salt and light wherever we are, and to be prepared to follow God into whatever the ‘next thing’ is that he asks us to do.
