    For God's Sake, Go To Work

    For God's Sake, Go To Work

    (Bonus points if you get this episode title’s reference…) We all have to do it, and even many of the super-wealthy still choose to do it — clearly, it’s not just about bringing home a paycheck. But why bother working well? How do we find meaning in the thing we spend a whole heckuva lot of our waking hours doing? It goes far beyond holding a title of significance or having some surface form of influence.

    Snowpacalypse!

    Snowpacalypse!

    Seth is in Arkansas and Tsh is in Texas, which means this week they've been covered under a blanket of snow and ice. It took a while until they could even record at all, but once they did, they did a quick check-in before the power went out again, followed by a more leisurely chat about what it means to survive vs. thrive. What do moments like this — and even moments like the global pandemic — teach us about what it is we truly need to live another day?

    Creating > Consuming

    'Creator' the noun can collapse on its own weight, especially on the internet — but this word doesn't only apply to social media influencers, artists, or inventors. We're all creators. And, as Seth and Tsh are joined around the table by their friend, Haley Stewart, the three talk about whether we just might all be hard-wired in our nature to join in the act of creation more than participating in our culture's default of consumption.

    The Persuasive Power of Beauty

    The Persuasive Power of Beauty

    Dostoevsky said it will change the world. Confucius said everything has it, but not everyone sees it. Shakespeare, Plato, and others wondered if it was in the eye of the beholder. Beauty matters in our everyday lives; it’s not an extra “nice to have.” But where do we find it? What do we do with it? How does it affect our ordinary lives? And is it subjective or objective?

    The Good Kind of Pain

    The Good Kind of Pain

    We all KNOW we’re supposed to work out, but knowing that doesn’t make many of us do it. Seth and Tsh aren’t workout-obsessed, but as working parents in their early 40s who’d like to be around a good while, they’ve reaped the benefits of doing the hard work anyway. How do we find the motivation we need to keep moving, even when we don’t feel like it? Recognizing the sacramentality of our earthly bodies definitely helps.

Such a refreshing and insightful podcast

I adore listening to and contemplating the different themes of sacramentality that Tsh and Seth discuss about. Especially during this challenging season this podcast offers simple yet comforting ways to overcome our difficulties

Refreshing

I love the short and sweet switch up of subjects with a refreshing point of view.

DeckerKim ,

Depth plus fresh air

I’ve been a long time fan of Tsh and, on her recommendation, I read a book of Seth’s. I’m not surprised that they are pals! Their focus on the liturgy of the ordinary is awesome! They offer a great combination of depth and fresh air!!
