“Sobremesa” is the concept of staying at the dinner table for long periods of time way past the eating time. In this amazing conversation we got to do just that with Leonard Sweet (who by the way gives honor to his last name). He is a preacher, teacher, scholar and author of best selling books.

One of Leo’s latest books is Rings of Fire, a book in which he explores what seems like a volcanic future that lies ahead for christians. In this episode of the Christian Podcast we got to create a virtual sobremesa (while I was drinking my coffee at least) to explore some of the concepts and ideas proposed in this recent book.

Conversation partners, the 22nd century, the future, the table.
