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 47: Daily Prayer

Monday, May 4th, 2009

Daily prayer is an integral part of every Christian’s priestly vocation. It’s also the 7th part of the catechism. Out of order, but not forgotten, we’re talking about talking to God here on The God Whisperers.

Episode 29: The Our Father (Part 7)

Monday, December 1st, 2008

“Deliver us from evil (or the evil one)” and “Amen” are on the table in this week’s episode of The God Whisperers. What is this evil we are supposed to be delivered from? And what does that word “Amen” mean anyway? We’re wrapping up the Prayer of Jesus, and you’ll want to be listening in on The God Whisperers.

Episode 28: The Our Father (Part 6)

Tuesday, November 25th, 2008

“Lead us not into temptation” is the petition du jour, though we get sidetracked in the first half by World Toilet Day and an insightful listener letter taking issue with David Murrow’s program for marketing church to guys. We finally get back to the business of temptation in the second half, and how God tempts no one but the devil, the world, and our own adamic flesh do. All in all, another day of God Whisperings.

Episode 25: The Our Father (Part 5)

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008

“Forgive us in the same way as we forgive.” Petition 5 is on the table, though it does take us a while to get there. Lot’s of stuff packed into this episode including why guys are quitting church, Donofrio’s spelling, and Greek food.

Episode 24: The Our Father (Part 4)

Monday, October 27th, 2008

“Give us this day our daily bread.” We’re talking about angry atheistis, high school dropouts, autumn in New England, bread, wine, pizza, government, weather, and a whole bunch of other stuff under the 4th petition of the Lord’s Prayer.

Episode 23: The Our Father (Part 3)

Monday, October 20th, 2008

We’re talking about the 2nd and 3rd petitions of the Prayer of Jesus (aka The Lord’s Prayer) on this episode of The God Whisperers. For what exactly are we praying when we say “Thy kingdom come” and “Thy will be done”? You better know what you are praying for; you just might get it!

Episode 22: The Our Father (Part 2)

Thursday, October 16th, 2008

“Hallowed be Thy Name.” We don’t use the word “hallowed” much any more. Halloween, hallowed halls, maybe hallowed ground. What does it mean to ask God that His Name be holy? And why is this the first item on our prayer list, anyway? We’re whispering on the 1st petition of the Lord’s Prayer, so pull up a chair and have a listen.

Episode 21: The Our Father (Part 1)

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

It’s back to the Catechism on The God Whisperers as we begin a series on the Our Father (aka The Lord’s Prayer). Forget the Prayer of Jabaz, this is the prayer of Jesus, the one He taught His disciples to pray. And seeing as how He is the Son of God in the flesh, you have to figure that Jesus knows a thing or two about prayer. Listen in as we discuss what it means to say “Our Father in heaven.”
