On this episode, Josh and Sam discuss how outside toxicity can affect the church internally. Negativity can come from your tribe–denominations, associations, and networks. Should you ignore or engage these issues? We talk about how you can stay in tune with what’s going on without losing your mind. Sometimes your church has no clue about outside toxicity. Other times it can be a major problem. There are ways to shepherd your people through it.
