Episode 77: Christmas Edition

Monday, December 28th, 2009

Christmas hymns, music, and the Christmas narrative from the Gospel according to St. Luke all jammed into one hour.  Unfortunately, the music is a bit low in volume on this episode; we apologize for the technical glitch.

Merry Christmas to all and thanks for listening to The God Whisperers.

“Merry Christmas” from the Manly Drs.

Episode 76: Augsburg Confession (article 22)

Monday, December 21st, 2009

Well, we set out to talk about article 22, but we got distracted a bit by an early Christmas present that we opened on the air.  When we finally get around to it, Article 22 of the Augsburg Confession is the first of the correct articles dealing with abuses and errors of the medieval Roman church.  The first on the table is communion under one kind (bread only) for the laity.

We’re talking about it in this episode, along with some seasonal stuff, Hannukah, Kwanzaa, and yes, you guessed it – more bacon.  This time it’s dark chocolate and applewood smoked bacon with alderwood smoked salt.  All in good, clean fun.  Well, good fun at least.

Here’s the source of the chocolate bar we’re talking about, in case you are tempted:  http://www.vosgeschocolate.com/

“Jesus is a Friend of Mine” – Organ Edition

Saturday, December 19th, 2009

Yes, you asked for it, now you have it!  The famously infamous organ rendition of “Jesus is a Friend of Mine” by Chris Loemker, first heard on the Advent episode of the God Whisperers.

Enthrall family and friends alike with this cerebral styling of a classic contemporary Christian melody.  This would make a wonderful e-stocking stuffer for the contemporary Christian music fan on your Christmas list.  Solid gold!

SaintsANGELICO1430We return to the Augsburg Confession and the proper veneration of the saints in article 21.   Do we pray to them?  Do they pray for us?  Does it matter and why?  How are the heros of the faith best remembered?  We’re talking and hoping you’re listening.
