Balancing Truth and Grace

Guests: Caleb Kaltenbach,

24:11 – 

When he was a boy, Caleb Kaltenbach’s parents divorced and each pursued homosexual relationships. Caleb grew up in that culture, attending gay pride parades and watching Christians exhibit a lot of un-Christlike behavior. When he was a teenager, he found Jesus and suddenly faced a crisis of both identity and loyalty. Caleb is refreshingly chill as he recounts his journey of truth and grace. Listen in as he shares some gritty, real and very interesting insights on how to unconditionally love others we don’t agree with.
