Episode 158: Alphabet Soup and Church Fellowship

Monday, September 26th, 2011

The Manly Doctors of Divinity venture into the shark infested waters of ELCA / LCMS / WELS / ELS alphabet soup and church fellowship.  The long version of “In the Tavern” and a few more trivial naughty bits round out an episode sure to please no one.

Episode 157: The Episode About Nothing

Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

A post-modern pastiche of random nothingness including:  the Zagats, Hyundai dealerships, intimate Italian restaurants, some guy who calls himself the God Whisperer not to be confused with the Manly Doctors of Divinity, the church of “foggy boundaries,” the intermediate state between death and resurrection, Jehovah’s Witnesses, 7th Day Adventists, Adventists, “soul sleep,” listener mail bag, MD Cwirla goes on a brief verbal strike,  the short version of “In the Tavern,” Loemker serenades us with “What a Friend We Have in Jesus” from the mighty Cwirlitzer, and some reflections on 9/11 from MD Donofrio.  This show is a bargain at the price.

Tuesday, September 13th, 2011

The Manly Doctors take on the theological questions of a three year old, Loemker debuts yet another hymn styling “Skate Onward,” and if that wasn’t enough, there is a discussion on Colossians 3:16 and “psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs” as it applies to the Hymn of the Day in the divine service.

Episode 155: Jesus is Calling

Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

The God Whisperers reflect on a Skype call regarding Catholics, Lutherans and Evangelicals.  GW Organist Chris Loemker debuts his “Jesus is Calling” at the mighty Cwirlitzer.  A 24-second Bible study on conversion after death and a discussion of psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs as Hymn of the Day rounds out a scintillating hour of God whispering.
