This week, we sit down with Jerel Mair and listen to his responses On Death! He’s a lovely fellow, I met him through CrossFit Gaspar, and he subsequently invited me with open arms to his church, Aletheia in New Tampa. Jerel is a warm and old soul, and I think it shows in our conversation. We talk about his Christian faith, his upbringing, and how he wants to be remembered!
This week On Death, we listen to Diego Gomez‘s responses to the four prompts! He’s a lovely fellow and an educated Christian, in many ways. We talk about how he found and accepted his faith, and what he hopes to do before he dies.
