Episode 012: This week on The Change Makers Podcast, Drew Marshall, the long-time host of The Drew Marshall show – Canada's most listened to spiritual talk show, is joining us once again with his wife, Bev. If you haven't listened to episode 006 with Drew, click here. In this week's episode, Ellen is joined by Bev and Drew for an enormously deep, honest conversation where they discuss topics such as; what to do when your marriage falls apart, whether or not ministry is compatible when wrestling with faith, if it's okay to be in ministry and not have all the answers; whether or not relationships can work without faith as a common denominator and about treating ministry and leadership as a job rather than a personal relationship with the creator. It's a timely conversation in light of COVID-19 and quarantine, where couples are suddenly spending a lot of time together at home, and perhaps facing new challenges in their marriage.
