Episode 167: Advent Benedictions

After sustaining a major iced beverage spill in the GW studios, the Manly Doctors regroup for a scintillating mailbag discussion on Donofrio’s educational philosophy, Cwirla’s distaste for the Assemblies of God and speaking in tongues, miracles natural and unnatural and overly wordy conditional absolutions.  We also touch on Joel Osteen’s proposed reality TV show and round out the hour with a discussion of the Benediction in the Divine Service with a reading from Luther Reed.  Mele Kalikimaka.
