What happens when missionally minded folks, who are also into sports and athletics, combine their passions for reading, cooking, and preaching and spend time talking together? Hopefully a thoughtful conversation with unexpected connections: NFL draft and the nature of the Holy Spirit; preaching as outlined in baking recipes; batting averages, what triple-doubles have to do with what it means to be a church of mutual accountability. We are allergic to big words, but not big ideas. DISCLAIMER: Profound things will be said, but it will be entirely by accident.

    Episode 3.10 IN WHICH OUR HOSTS DISCOVER THEIR SIGNATURE SOUND

    We’re still in one of the longest seasons after Epiphany, but it is not too soon to think about Ash Wednesday coming up, and the season of Lent. There’s all kinds of symbolism and tradition mixed in with this season.

    Also, baseball begins (https://www.springtrainingonline.com/reporting-dates/).

    You might think we talk about God and the bible to help preachers find something to talk about. Reality is, most preachers don’t need help finding something to talk about.

    Sometimes we need less to talk about.  But, the scriptures are not just for preachers and teachers to talk about. Rather, how does the bible affect family life, business and consumer choices, and how we lead our institutions and organizations.  Really, we’re trying to pull the bible out of the preacher’s hands and get the wisdom of church seasons, cycles of scripture readings, and the stories and rituals of faith in to all our hands.

    episode 3.8 in which our hosts learn about volleyball and hospitality

    We have an episode co-host and interviewee, Sarah Jackson of Casa De Paz, Denver, Colorado on this episode of the All That’s Holy: Blue Collar Podcast.
    (Note: take a look at the photo, by Anthony Camera on the podcast page, I love the netting on the volleyball net and the ball that looks like a globe - cool!).
    We blathered and yacked (verb, past tense: trivial or unduly persistent conversation) about some of the following topics and ideas in the podcast. But for the most part, we got to know Sarah Jackson and life at Casa De Paz. Please look at the following links to learn about Casa de Paz and support the compassionate work of hospitality are hope.

    episode 3.7 in which our hosts seek a daily apocalypse

    episode 3.7 in which our hosts seek a daily apocalypse

    As we get ready to jump into Epiphany, we look at the key themes of the season and grab onto an idea that helps us frame our conversations around the season.
    Of the many themes that arise in the lectionary texts for this year in the lectionary, the epiphany theme of “revealing” and of “unveiling” emerge. That which is being revealed is the light of God in Jesus of Nazareth. With each week, a new story unveils a previously unseen aspect of God-with-us.
