Eric Thomas about his experience growing up in, and leaving, the Church, only to find religion again after meeting and marrying his husband, a Presbyterian minister. Eric shares his perspective on what the christian faith has to offer today; the apocalypse that is 2020; and how comedy can be a bridge between opposing points of view. R.
