Only on The Coffeepot Fellowship Podcast will we not edit out our own humanity! Romal Tune is an excellent human being. He is pastoral and kind. We met at the Wild Goose Festival in July where he was one of the leaders of a class of first-timers. We students were all either current seminarians or novice ministers. Fortunately the spirit of the entire festival, the cohort class included, was of peer relationships, sisters and brothers. And so we all became quick friends and colleagues. This is very plain to see (or hear) in this podcast.
Romal Tune is an award winning author, consultant and strategist. While Romal was in his hometown in California for our cross country interview, he is currently in Cape Town, South Africa. You can catch follow him on Periscope and see some of his work live around the world. You might also catch pictures of his recent breakfast with Bishop Desmond Tutu.
Faith leaders have always needed to be thoughtful and creative. Today, however, I believe faith leaders must also be somewhat entrepreneurial. There are fewer full time ministry positions available. More faith leaders are bivocational or other-vocational. And the internet has, of course, changed the context of ministry, and often its means. All of Romal’s work is his ministry. You can see much more of what Romal is doing via his website. Don’t forget to check out his calendar to see if he will be near you (and when you can book him for events)!
In this podcast interview Romal talks about “doing the work.” What is the hard work? Find out here.
Thank you again, Romal, for sharing your time and experience with so many faith leaders and faith curious friends via The Coffeepot Fellowship Podcast!
For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope. – Jeremiah 29:11
