Episode 125 Ben Gosden on Addiction, Recovery, and Ministry

Ben Gosden, pastor of Trinity Church in Savannah Georgia takes us on a deep dive into addiction, recovery and ministry. Years into a success ministry as a United Methodist pastor, Ben found himself struggling with alcoholism. Listen in as he shares a powerful testimony about the transformational power of 12 steps. We don't merely talk about alcoholism but about the deeper roots of addiction. Addiction isn't really even the problem per se; addiction is a solution but its a bad solution to even deeper problems.
