  1. "Love God and Love Others" - Paul Granger Terry McMullen 1:12:09

I was connected with Paul by a mutual friend and we actually had a conversation on another podcast prior to this one. This works out well sometimes, because it allows us to get deeper into the discussion since we already have a baseline understanding of each other. Paul brought “love God and love others” as his strongly held belief to discuss for the show.

What I knew about Paul from our prior conversation was that he would be super thoughtful about why he believed so strongly in this idea and he would also be super open to examining/challenging it to try to understand it better. We discussed why there are some Christians who would agree with his belief but don’t follow it, why people are skeptical of Christianity, why so many Christians feel compelled to “stand up” for God, and if suffering is ever something that we should accept in the world.

See below for a brief bio on Paul-

Paul has been serving in inner-city ministries since 2005, with a focus on shepherding others as they seek to “love God and love others”.  He currently serves with Youth With A Mission in Richmond, is President of New Visions Civic League, facilitates a Community Bible Study, and hosts the “Where did you see God?” Podcast.

I spent much of my career trying to consult companies on how to better achieve their goals. I was a Finance major, a Harvard Business School graduate, and a business strategist. I've always been curious and I've always loved trying to solve problems. It was a really good fit for a while, but then life happened.

Within the span of a couple of years I had a son, my sister tragically passed away, and my wife became severely ill with Multiple Sclerosis. All of a sudden everything I thought I knew about life didn't seem to make sense anymore. I needed to raise my son and teach him how to be a good person but I realized I didn't even know what it meant to be a good person, let alone know how to teach him to be one. I also realized that I wasn't capable of being the person my wife needed me to be to help care for her. Simply put, I wasn't good enough.
