About this Episode

“The gospel is the anti-success message” – Dr. Joseph “Skip” Ryan. On our podcast we often get to hear stories of people who have had a lot of success in their work. While Dr. Ryan has had many successes in his work as a pastor and professor, he has also experienced some significant setbacks. Skip’s career was majorly detoured when he became addicted to narcotics, but in his failure he discovered a renewed love for the grace of God. If you find yourself struggling with perfectionism, shame, or the burdens of leadership in your work, this will be well worth a listen.
