Episode 168: Please, Sorry, Thanks with Mark Batterson



Please, Sorry, Thanks: These three magic words are the keys to healthy relationships and successful careers. Nothing opens doors like a genuine “please.” Nothing resolves conflict like a sincere apology. Nothing incurs favor like heartfelt gratitude. Mike Linch welcomes back Mark Batterson, Pastor of National Community Church in Washington, D.C., and author of Please, Sorry, Thanks: The Three Words that Change Everything. Mark shares how each of these words are essentially a different posture of the heart, and he explains that our country is in dire need of a “revival of politeness.”

In addition to serving as lead pastor of National Community Church in Washington, DC, one church with multiple locations, Mark serves as lead visionary for The Dream Collective, which equips and supports dreamers who long for revival in the church, reformation in the kingdom, and renaissance in culture.

Mark holds a Doctor of Ministry degree from Regent University and is the author of 23 books including the New York Times bestselling The Circle Maker as well as In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day, Wild Goose Chase, Double Blessing, Whisper, and, more recently, Win the Day and Do it for a Day. Mark is married to Lora and they live on Capitol Hill. They have three children: Parker, Summer (married to Austin), and Josiah.
