God is in the monotonous. Gloria Furman, a pastor’s wife and mother of four, talks about the day she realized that her mom duties weren’t interruptions to her spiritual growth, but that God wanted to interact with her in the day-to-day, amongst the dishes and the diapers. Gloria and her husband, Dave, pastor of Redeemer Church in Dubai, talk about the debilitating disease that has weakened his muscles, but not their faith or their ministry.
Dave Furman (ThM, Dallas Theological Seminary) serves as senior pastor of Redeemer Church of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, which he helped plant in 2008. He previously served in various churches in the United States. In 2002, Dave developed a nerve disease and struggles with disability in both arms. Gloria Furman, a popular author, is his wife and primary caregiver.
