Facing the Elephant: Intentional Responses
Crawford and guest Ron Hughes discuss the different ways people respond when approached with a question (or bid).  Looking at the life of the Lord Jesus, Ron identifies 3 ways we generally respond and explains why being aware of the bid and how we respond is important. Relationships are often ruined because men and women fail to respond in ways that promote healthy relationships. This applies to families, churches, communities, and places of employment.  About Ron: Ron’s served in Ecuador for 10 years where he taught several courses in the Bible institute run by one of the local churches in Quito. He and his wife Debbie were involved in church planting and discipleship activities. In 1993, they returned to Canada in response to an invitation of the FBH board so Ron could work alongside Arnot McIntee, then president of the ministry. In 1995, Arnot retired from active work with the board and Ron assumed responsibility. He served as president until 2019 when he retired to pursue other interest such as writing.
