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!
Episode 11: Family Style
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.
Episode 10: Movies and Books
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.
Episode 9: Racism in the Church
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.
Episode 8: The Christmas Show
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.
Episode 7: #metoo
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!
Episode 6: We Argue Because We Trust
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.
Episode 5: The Nashville Statement
This week we have a real(ish) donnybrook as David and John are in violent opposition to the Nashville Statement. We also discuss happiness (is it the ultimate ideal) and whether Amanda is a feminist. And as a bonus, we find out who among us would go back to being 16 again.
Episode 4: Dirty, Rotten Liars
Here at the Donnybrook Podcast, we have the best opinions and we are back in force. Today we talk about Christian non-violence, how to deal with your children’s lying and the benefits of personal generosity. We also get into the specifics of speeding tickets, tooth fairies, and the importance of proper spelling when searching Amazon for your books.
Episode 3: Eugene Peterson and Charlie Gard
Now known as the Donnybrook Podcast, we argue about how to handle our heroes when they fall. If a Christian leader makes a mistake, can we still follow their work? Is this healthy? We also talk about the ethic and value of life. When is it okay to let go? Listen to Switchfoot’s Live It Well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ov_lnXy7tkQ
