Host, Mike Domitrz, welcomes CAST members Sue DeCaro, Erin Taylor, Darren Tipton and Sam Silverstein. This week’s episode take some surprising twists and turns, inspired by a quote from quote from Born to Run written by Christopher McDougal: “It’s your obligation to share whatever you can spare, instantly and with no expectations: once the gift leaves your hand, it was never yours to begin with.” CAST members voice their thoughts on giving from a place of abundance, recognizing the importance of setting boundaries, and listening to your heart when serving others. The exchange ends with CAST members sharing the books that have helped them during their journeys of service.
