This week we follow Corey as he travels to Washington DC to attend the Young Clergy Forum at the Methodist Building on Capitol Hill. The conversation involves a few brief interviews, one with Shane Claiborne (very brief) and one with Teer Hardy from Crackers & Grapejuice. In addition, there is an extended live conversation (which is really just a dinner conversation) talking about everything from church camp to masculinity and how the Church can think about it differently. This was a fun conversation to put together and though the audio may not always be the best the conversation never really gets dull, but despite that we'll be back next week with a regular episode.
This episode comes to us all the way from August when Danny, Corey, and Ashley attended the School for Congregational Development in Atlanta.
This week we have a rather lengthy discussion on the topic of self-care, what it is, why it's important, what we do to engage in it. It's probably not the first time we've talked about it, it just seems like it's that important.
So full disclosure right here, we'll be using the word "Shithole" in this episode because hey, if the president can do it we can too.
The episode in which AhnnaLise shares her insights after her blog was discontinued on Pathos, the one in which we rant a bit about Star Wars and express our excitement over the impending Black Panther film.
As we noted in the show, we're including AhnnaLise's blog post here:
After three weeks away (all Corey's fault) we return for a discussion on Epiphany. What is it, why it's important, whether or not The Star should have included the Slaughtering of the Innocents and whether we should share that story during children's time or not. We also get on quite a few side tracks, but all in all a good episode, one you don't want to miss as we enter 2018.
Corey and Ethan are sucked into the strange world of philosophical art house film. In this episode they talk about The Tree of Life, a film some might call self-indulgent in it's questions of evil, grace, and nature.
This is the last episode of the year, we'll be back in 2018 with our very own podcast station.
This week Corey, AhnnaLise, and Jeff talk peace, what is it, how do we achieve it, where do we work to find it in the chaos that is Advent.
This week Corey watches The Star and... tells Ethan all about it. Ethan, who didn't watch it tries to figure out if it's worth his time (it's really not).
Kicking off the Advent season we have our first of four part series, this time talking, hope.
