18 - The One With J. Shannon Webster

Episode 18 is going live right here, right now on our website and is available to stream here or you can download it on your favorite podcast app and save it for later!

In this episode Blake and I change things up a bit.  We're going to put our opinions on the news and happenings around Birmingham on hold this week and instead, we're going to give you our full, uncut conversation with the soon to be retired senior pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of Birmingham, Jon Shannon Webster.  

Shannon has been the senior pastor of FPC Birmingham since 2007 and on October 31st he will be delivering his final sermon there in that role.  

In our conversation with Shannon we talk about what brought him from New Mexico to Birmingham, his fight against Pay-day lending and involvement with the Alliance for Responsible Lending in Alabama, that one time President Obama called him out during a speech, and the intractability of music from his life and his faith (as well as the albums he has recorded)!
