    Theological Hospitality

    Theological Hospitality

    How can we create space for people to still have vibrant fellowship with one another despite severe differences of belief? Is it possible to genuinely cheer on someone who leads, believes, and teaches ideas that are different from yours?  Are there views that just create too large a chasm where fellowship must be broken?  Are there limits to showing theological hospitality?

    Do You Have Data Rights?

    Do You Have Data Rights?

    Should big tech be able to use the data you freely give it for whatever legal purposes that they see fit?  Do we have privacy rights when it comes to our data and to what extent? What ought the legal and moral boundaries be for data collection and usage?  We explore this topic through conversation and see if we can come to a better understanding of the issue and our part to play as consumers of big tech's products.

    What’s Being Aborted?

    What’s Being Aborted?

    The cultural conversation has shifted yet again to abortion, in light of happenings in the Supreme Court regarding the landmark case of Roe v. Wade.  In this episode, we attempt to get to the heart of the matter as we see it, which is whether the entity within the womb has certain rights.  That is, if such entities are persons that have various rights including a right to life, this limits the range of morally permissible options for how to treat it.

    Lessons from ”The Slap”

    Lessons from ”The Slap”

    We're a number of weeks out from the shocking slap that occurred on the stage of the Oscars.  Far from focusing on the celebrity drama of it all, the incident raises a number of important legal, ethical, and cultural questions.  Is there any kind of speech worth of a physical, violent reaction? How much does the setting matter? What if someone other than Will Smith had done this - how much should that matter for our legal and ethical decisions? Is there a limit to comedy and what is the role of comedy in a good society?  Enjoy the conversation and stay curious!

Enjoying the show!!

As a practicing Catholic and a man married to a recreation therapist, I really enjoyed listening to the episodes on Communion and recreation/work/boredom. Great discussion from some authentic Christian men to listen in on!
