Episode 73: Thanksgiving Edition

Monday, November 30th, 2009

A very special Thanksgiving Day edition of The God Whisperers recorded “on location” as we digest our respective Thanksgiving dinners.  We’re talking the history of Thanksgiving as a civil/religious holiday, a few Thanksgiving hymns and why they sound Unitarian, and of course, our favorite Thanksgiving foods including pumpkin pie and bacon.  Pull up a chair at the GW Thanksgiving table, pour yourself a nice Cabernet, and get ready for a feast.

Faith in ActionPicWe engage a couple of listener calls and add a little more bacon to the frypan for those who didn’t get enough of it last week.  Then it’s on to faith and good works – in that order.

People worry about the necessity of good works for salvation; God worries about the necessity of salvation for good works.

baconA special “bacon edition” of the God Whisperers.  Everything goes better with bacon, right?  We’re talking the cause of sin and article 19 of the Augsburg Confession along with frying bacon in the nude.  You’ll have to hear it to believe it.  Craig has put to together some amazing bump music to top it all off.  Wow!
