In this episode, I had a truly amazing conversation with Trace Barbour Aguila. I am beyond grateful to have had this opportunity to speak with them and take in some of their wisdom. We discuss what death means in our modern urban environment as well the importance of knowing what grace is and having the ability to offer grace to ourselves and each other and to step into personal responsibility when it is offered.
