Interview with highly-esteemed Chef Bobby Saritsoglou. He is the chef and co-owner, along with his wife Christina, of the Philadelphia restaurant, Stina Pizzeria, which has been critically acclaimed by food critic Craig Laban, Philadelphia Magazine, Philly Eater and more! Bobby has been a member and friend of Circle of Hope for a long time, and he sits down with Rachel to talk about food, faith, the restaurant business, and what Stina’s been up to. It’s a great and funny interview with this talented artist.

Also, Jonny and Julie talk about making space for people we haven’t met yet, and what that looks like. And a little Spiritual Show and Tell: high regards for Andrew’s cover of a Circle of Hope Audio Art worship song, “Make Us Whole.” Also, praise for our compassion team Circle Mobilizing because Black Lives Matter’s recent efforts to practice reparations among us at Circle of Hope. We raised over $30,000 that was dispersed back to our Black CoH covenant members!
