Means of Grace: Moving Stories


In this episode of the Means of Grace podcast, Kim Ingram and Jesse Enniss talk with three Western North Carolina clergy: Duncan Martin, Drew McIntyre, and Mark Barden, who share their stories of moving day and getting ready to leave one parsonage and move into another one. Duncan and Mark, who are also PKs (preacher’s kids) reflect on experiences growing up, as well. They each remind us of the care that is given to families and ways that the transition can be made easier - usually it involves a sense of humor. We hope you will enjoy this lighter edition of Means of Grace, as so many of you can relate these stories to your own experiences.
