The Collect Call: For St. James the Just & Social Media Sunday

12079839_10153652891952692_4100586451912669394_o

If we’re scientifically minded people what does it mean that we also believe the church has the power to heal? More importantly, why did Holli have to swear off duels?

This podcast might have jumped the shark some time ago, but this time even we know it. This episode for St. Michael & All Angels is an epic fail or an epic…something. We’ll let you decide.

St. Matthew is mentioned only once, only in the gospel he wrote, and his name might actually have been Levi. We try (not very hard) to unravel this mystery.

Really, is there a better accompaniment to a Labor Day road trip or barbecue than Holli and Brendan reflecting on the meaning of work and giving you a homework assignment about Amy Grant’s theology of angels? No, we thought not.

Holli, Brendan, and special guest Dave Hedges contemplate whether monk seals would make good pets and the lives of monastic orders and Christian communities. Also: we declare war on the dictionary.

We don’t know much for sure about St. Bartholomew, but that hasn’t stopped the church from coming up with elaborate stories about him. From travels to India to miracles or weight loss and a gruesome martyrdom, join Holli, Brendan, and special guest Dave Hedges as we consider what Bartholomew means for the church.
