Episode 154: Were You There When That Just Happened?

Monday, August 29th, 2011

Listener email sends the Manly Doctors off road once again into researching the actual origins of the word “boogity,” followed by a riff on wedding photographers.    A world debut of another Loemker hymn styling “Were You There When That Just Happened?”  And if that weren’t enough to fill an hour of disturbing yet compelling listening, the liturgical use of the creeds in the western Mass form.

Monday, August 22nd, 2011

A Skype caller and an email unleash more marital mayhem from the Manly Doctors.  The second half hour goes into the Lectionary – 1 and 3 year – and preaching.  And we debut a new feature – “Devout Desecrations – the hymn stylings of Chris Loemker.”

Episode 152: Prayer and the Mighty Wurlitzer

Monday, August 15th, 2011

Listener email causes the Manly Doctors to consider the existential question, “Am I really a Christian?”  along with unreality of Rob Bell’s hell.  Donofrio’s eyes and his iPad are acting up.  There is a devout in-depth discussion on the five-part collect form of the liturgy.  Plus, the sonorous tones of the mighty GW Wurlitzer.

Episode 151: Boogity, boogity, boogity

Tuesday, August 9th, 2011

Listener email takes the Manly Doctors to the dark side with a massive “Home Schooler Alert” followed by a discussion of the Service of the Word.  And some great “Boogity, boogity, boogity” from Baptist pastor Jim Nelms with some enhancements by the Gregory Brothers.  You may want to hide the little ones for the first half hour.

Music credits:

“You Really Got Me” – The Kinks

‘Boogity, Boogity, Boogity” – Pr. Jim Nelms as Songified by the Gregory Brothers.
