Great Resource for Preachers

I love this show because it explores the Biblical texts in ways that stretch me and inspire me. I am grateful for all of the podcasts Crackers and Grapejuice .

More Episodes With Teer

Teer is my favorite guest on the pod. He has fresh takes and keeps Taylor on his toes. This pod requires guest check their canned answers at the door and keeps the focus on Christ. Again, more Teer!!!

Approachable and Challenging

The sometimes irreverant takes on the Lectionary (that's not exactly the right word-- these guys revere Scripture, they're just not always "church nice") are challenging and thought-provoking. I always hear something that I disagree with, but when imagine myself in the "other" camp, I know that I would say the same thing. That's a good thing. This approach feels like a last gasp of Big Tent Methodism, and I am here for it. Keep up the good work.
