Church Nerds 89 | Rhythm (Season 8 Premiere)

SHOW NOTES

The Church Nerds return, starting a new rhythm for the show. And what better topic than rhythm itself. Bubba & Anna look at video games that follow a daytime/nighttime rhythm or make aspects of the game limited time offerings, and the FOMO games like that can cause. Then, we look at how church’s do the same thing with their events calendars. How can we find balance?
