    February 16th, 2020 - Pluto Day

    Join the Reverend Jeff Smith as we acknowledge the little guy (at least on a celestial level) with a day in his honor! February 18th is Pluto Day, when we celebrate our smallest member of the Solar System and reminisce about when we used to have nine planets in it. We'll explain the reason for the day, investigate exactly why Pluto isn't considered a "planet" any longer, what we know about our farthest space-neighbor, dig into the Roman god whose name was given to our poor little dwarf planet, and finally, the Reverend will discuss how the old gods still influence our daily lives!.

We'll explain the reason for the day, catch you up on the devastation that's hitting the area, talk about how the country came to be, address some myths that we here in the US have about Australia, and the Reverend will add his own two cents as well.

    January 19th, 2020 - Martin Luther King Jr Day

    January 19th, 2020 - Martin Luther King Jr Day

    Join the Reverend Jeff Smith a celebration of a true man of peace. While he was actually born on January 15th of 1929, this year on January 20th, we celebrate the birth, life, message, and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. An outspoken advocate of racial equality, social justice, and non-violent protest, Dr. King's dream of an America free of racial strife and tension seems to have faded in recent years, so it's necessary that we remember the journal of this incredible man and everything that he stood for. That's what we'll be doing today.

The Reverend will explain how the day came to be, two methods for doing nothing, some notable times when doing nothing is better than doing something, discovering what 'doing nothing' means to you, and he'll deliver some personal ruminations on how doing nothing factors into his life.

Fantastic Podcast with Minimal Religion!

One of my all-time favorite podcasts. The host takes an important topic, discusses it plainly yet thoughtfully, and provides a great classic rock playlist to accompany his discourse. And all without preaching! If RL church were more like this, I'd be more religious. Top notch!!

Great classic rock on SoR Radio

If you enjoy classic rock, this church is for you! There’s no religion other than a passion for rock ‘n roll. This show is hosted on Spirit of Resistance (SoR) radio. Naturally, there will be some talk about how goes the resistance, so don’t whine if your reality is too fragile for a little reflection. After all, classic rock is all about questioning the establishment! Enjoy the great tunes and thoughtful commentary from the Rev.
