Episode 348: Preachers, Sneakers, & Post-Church Believers
Is it okay for a pastor to wear $5,000 shoes? How about $500 sneakers? What if they were a gift? What if the pastor serves an affluent, brand-savvy community?

The reasons are complex, but Skye says the preaching-focused structure of most churches needs to be rethought in the Internet Age.
