Episode 232: Special Root Canal Edition

Monday, June 24th, 2013


Root canals, the perfect drink recipe, and the distinction of call and ordination in the making of a pastor.  Just another day at the office for the Manly Doctors of Divinity.

Manic Monday – The Bangles

Girl From Ipinima – Astrud Gilberto

Brand New Cadillac – The Clash

Jesus is a Friend of Mine – Sonseed

Always Look on the Bright Side of Life – Monty Python, Spamalot

Episode 231: Dog Fights and Raising a Dead Son

Monday, June 17th, 2013


Rufus vs the neighbor’s pit bull, listener email (scientific accuracy of Scripture, theodicy, separating the two natures in the Lord’s Supper), the liturgical calendar, a Nagel sermon on Jesus’ raising the Nain widow’s son) with a bunch of intro music, and miracles as previews of the resurrection.

Music Creds:

“I’m An Ordinary Man” – Rex Harrison in “My Fair Lady”

Rum & Coca Cola – Sweet Hollywaiians

All Day and All of the Night – The Kinks

Lola – The Kinks

Episode 230: Afternoon Delight

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

5469524058_b01aecda91_oRenting out church buildings.  GW exercise calendar.  Does a figurative millennium point to a figurative 6000 years too?  Degrees of punishment in Luke 12, the ministry as stewardship, the judgment as a refining fire, and if that weren’t enough, the immaculate conception of Mary.  An hour of afternoon GW delights.

Music creds:

Afternoon Delight – Starlight Vocal Band

Beat My Guest – Adam and the Ants

Get Right or Get Left – David Parmley and Continental Divide

Jesus is a Friend of Mine – Sonseed

Adios, Au Revoir, Aufwiedersehen  - Lawrence Welk

Monday, June 3rd, 2013


More whisperings with Dr. Jeff Mallinson, including body hair, core curricula, Virtue in the Wasteland, counter tenors, midget wrestling, sushi, emergent and mega-church criticisms, and engaging the “postmoderns.”  Did I mention body hair?

Music Creds

I’m Too Sexy – Right Said Fred

Finland – Spamalot

It’s My Life – Cesare

Hell – Squirrel Nut Zipper
