Welcome to Youth Culture Matters, a podcast from the Center for Parent/Youth Understanding. We’re taking a short break from recording new episodes, so for the next few weeks of summer we’ll be highlighting episodes from our archive. Today’s episode is an encouraging conversation with Pastor Scotty Smith. Listen in to a replay of Episode 29: “Prayer, God’s Story, and Preaching the Gospel to Yourself” with Scotty Smith. The original episode has been edited to begin today’s version at the onset of our interview with Scotty. The full episode was originally released on February 1, 2017.
