Please join us for this very special “live event” of the T. Randolph and Friends broadcast. Recording at the Graf Barn in Southern California, we invited special guests, Michelle Wortner, Laina Graf, Don Dukes and Sam Gallucci to join in on the conversational topic of, “God’s Love vs Man’s Love.”

This was an incredible time of enlightened discussion about how it is difficult to love others, ourselves and those around us unconditionally. Yet we can experience and learn to accept this kind of love, given freely from our Creator, even in ups and downs of our journey hear on earth. We hope that this broadcast will touch the lives of those listening, to bring hope, peace, strength and encouragement.

Don Dukes is our special guest on the T. Randolph and Friends broadcast.

Don is an associate pastor at Skyline Church in Thousand Oaks, California. He oversees the CARE ministry at Skyline. He recently relocated from Whitefish, Montana where he served as head pastor and provided other ministries to the community. He grew up in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and served as an associate pastor at a 20,000 member church.

He has an amazing story of growing up as a pastor’s kid, being in ministry all his life, and recognizing that Grace is not earned by all the good we do, but rather it is given to us as a free gift from God and from others.

Don and his wife, Eliana, and daughter, Juliana, are enjoying this new journey of life in Southern California.

T. Randolph’s vision and desire for his blog and Podcast come from his heart.  This Podcast is about real people with real stories, challenges and victories.  It is about hope, faith, relationships and friendships.  In life, we spend too much time worrying about what others think.  In a world that is self-absorbed, we learn to self-medicate to cover up pain.

T. Randolph and Friends is about opening up a dialogue between ordinary people.  Not celebrities, famous politicians, or entertainment stars.  It is about local heroes and regular families who have navigated challenging situations, and through it all have found meaning and purpose in life.

Join us and listen in on the conversation.
