On the Podcast: How The Village Church taught Matt Chandler to Find Joy In His Own Sorrow

Joe Henegan | October 25th 2019

In this episode we catch-up with Matt Chandler, Lead Pastor at The Village Church and author of Joy in the Sorrow: How a Thriving Church (and its Pastor) Learned to Suffer Well.

Matt and James talk about the intense suffering of so many at The Village Church and how that prepared Matt for his own battle with a malignant brain tumor.

He shares the fear he had of his brain and character being affected dramatically by surgery, why he chose to suffer so publicly and how we can help people who are suffering.
