The Manly Doctors honor the patron saint of the GW, Mrs. Miller, in a special What Would Mrs. Miller Do? edition.  Also on the menu, gluten-free dog biscuits, Baptist baptismal innovations, the environmental impact of home bible studies, adventures of the young and stupid, and a marvelous sermon by Norman Nagel on Ezekiel 37.

Music:

Yellow Submarine; Moon River; I’ve Got the Tiger by the Tail; Hard Day’s Night; Monday Monday; These Boots are Made for Walking – Mrs. Miller

Jesus is a Friend of Mine – Sonseed

episode 144: Pre-post-Pentecost Edition

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2011

If episode 144 sounds like it was recorded before episode 143, that’s because it was.  We decided that 144 had more Pentecost content than 143 so we turned 143 into 144 and 144 into 143.  We have some listener email, and a discussion of the church year.

Music:

“Birdhouse in Your Soul” – They Might Be Giants

“The Bacon Song” – Jenna Bean Veatch

episode 143: Pentecost Edition

Friday, June 17th, 2011

The Manly Doctors of Divinity go Pentecostal with a special fire of the Spirit edition of the God Whisperers.  Also a little bit of Gottesdienst rambling and some millennial mayhem just to round out the hour.  We hope you enjoy.

Music credits:

“Allergies” – The Barenaked Ladies

“Through the Fire” – Modern Mission

Episode 140: post-rapture edition

Monday, May 23rd, 2011

Well, it’s May 23rd and we’re all still around.  That means more madness from the Manly Doctors of Divinity, the Irreverent Reverends of Religiosity, the Supreme Sultans of Sarcasm.  Firmly believing that you can’t kick a dead horse too much, the God Whisperers do a post-mortem on the rapture that didn’t happen.  And to think, we recorded this one two weeks ago.  Now that’s confidence!

Episode 139: The “Last Ever” Pre-Rapture Edition

Tuesday, May 17th, 2011

Since the Rapture is scheduled for May 21st, the Manly Doctors of Divinity usher in the end of the age with a rousing tribute to eschatology guru Harold Camping.  We’re not expecting to be around next week, but you might want to check in here just to see who’s left behind.

Episode 123: A Little More Christmas Music

Monday, January 3rd, 2011

A little more Christmas theology and music on this 10th Day of Christmas from the Manly Doctors of Divinity.

Episode 115: Reformation / All Saints Edition

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010

We have a special Reformation / All Saints Day edition.  A little Reformation history, a little talk about the saints, and a little something more.

Episode 109: Special 9/11 edition

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010

We have a lot to say about 9/11 and related events including a proposed Islamic center near “ground zero” in NY and a Florida pastor who is threatening to burn a copy of the Qur’an.  Or not.  Also some discussion on Bible translations and a few other things rattling around the brains of the manly Doctors of Divinity.

Episode 106: A Little Bit of Everything

Monday, August 23rd, 2010

This episode is dedicated to our listeners who think we spend too much time kibitzing on the front end of the show.  The is one hour of pure stream of consciousness God Whisperers:   Tiki conventions, Vancouver Island, Irish pubs, mosques on Ground Zero, Obama’s real religion, and a burning ring of fire.  You have been forewarned.

Episode 100: The Best of GW – Special Edition

Tuesday, July 20th, 2010

Rejoice with us!  It was lost but now it’s found.  Put on the BBQ, pop the corks, it’s time for a little GW frivolity mixed with Lutheran theology in a best of God Whisperers commemorative episode.  Relive those great moments like Home Schooler Alert, Space Robot Spiritual, Mo’s Dark Chocolate Bacon Bar, and other highlights of our first 99 episodes.  We hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed putting this together.

Thanks to all our listeners for their support and feedback.  Special thanks to Brian Yamabe, who compiled these excerpts and Chris Loemker, who produced the “Jesus is a Friend of Mine” organ cover.  Let’s party!
