In this episode we discovered that the podcast should really be sponsored by Snickers and we also discuss the books Amanda didn’t report on her recent accreditation report. Then we got into talking about what it means to be a pastor, sparked by a Eugene Peterson quote. We also got a report from John about his visit to go hear celebrity pastor Carl Lentz speak in Boise.
In this episode we examine of the question of whether modern Christianity’s relaxation of the taboos of alcohol and tattoos will soon extend to blue language. And if so, is that a good thing? We also talk about immigration policy, the corruptibility of Christian practices in a fallen world, and (on a lighter note) David’s favorite white elephant gifts.
After our long summer break, we are back and back with a vengeance. In this episode we discuss the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court nomination, internet mobs, justice, hypocrisy, and truth. And that’s just in the first ten minutes. We also discuss the books that changed what you realized a book could be. Spoiler Alert: Amanda chose a C.S. Lewis book.
Join the crew as we talk movies (Black Panther and Jim Caviezel as Jesus/Luke), the value and importance of work, and the striking symbolism of Mark’s account of Jesus’ Passion. It’s a fun and far-reaching episode!
In this episode we are sitting around the dining room table watching the olympics and chatting after dinner. All told, there are 18 of us so you’ll hear a lot of kids coming and going. And you’ll hear all of our spouses chiming in. We have a lively conversation around the late (great) Ursula Le Guin.
In this far-reaching episode we laugh about Monty Python, read some listener emails, argue a bit about Christian Environmentalism, and think about divorce within the church. David learns about Godwin’s Law and tries to formulate his own law. We talk about Moviepass and skiing and how the cost of time influences our experience. And then come the book recommendations.
It’s 2018 and we get together to talk about Bitcoin, H.P. Lovecraft, and racism in the church. It’s an interesting conversation that takes some surprising turns. We hope you enjoy.
Join the gang as we argue about Christmas songs, talk about the liturgical calendar, and discuss (some explosive) Christmas memories. Look for references from Little House on the Prairie, A Christmas Carol, and the Muppets. And the count the number of times John groans about David’s corny Christmas songs.
In which we chat about traveling to Kuna, Challis, and various other far-flung destinations. We talk about sexual assault in our culture and the #metoo hashtag. We also listen to a preview of John’s sermon on Revelation 21 and offer our critique. Listen for John attempting to create fake controversy!
This week we hear about David’s adventures in remodeling, we ponder God’s role for women (egalitarian? complementarian? both? neither?) and talk about arguing, trust, and eating food at people’s (messy) houses. And listen as John gets skeeved out.
