Episode 188: O Day Full of Grace and Other Stuff

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

Listener email, a riff on “visionary” pastoral leadership, and then on to Pentecost.

Music creds:

Come, Holy Spirit – John Michael Talbot

O Day Full of Grace – The Choir and Orchestra of St. Olaf College

episode 187: “I Think You’re Remembering Something Else.”

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012

The Manly Doctors of Divinity engage the functional differences of Calvinism vs. Lutheranism, theses 20-26 of the Heidelberg Disputation and why the harder you look at good works the less good they look.  Then in a brilliant moment of middle-aged dementia, thinking he is quoting the Scriptures, Donofrio begins to channel the Council of Trent on faith as the “first work,” while Cwirla desperately tries to find it in the Greek text, concluding with this memorable line:  ”I think you’re remembering something else.”  Kyrie Eleison!

Music creds:

Themes from The Three Stooges and Sanford & Son.

Play that Funky Music – Wild Cherry
