We interview Rev. Brian Combs, founding pastor of Haywood Community Church, in downtown Asheville, NC. Rev. Combs approaches his ministry consistent with the core values of Jesus, as they see it. A ministry of love and compassion. As a result his church is one of the prominent resources for the homeless and disenfranchised; members of our community suffering from a variety of conditions including serious mental illness and addictions. Listen to this heart felt interview with Brian as we explore his perspective on empathy.
