In this episode, professional organist Ryan Frederick goes on a 76 minute tirade against Contemporary Worship almost immediately after we started recording. I was able to calm him down in the end, but boy. It's a wild ride.

I had a wonderful time talking with Pastor Zenk from Undying Light! No, we don't spend the entire time talking about ice fishing. In fact, we just barely mention it.

Pastor Garen Pay, author of an amazing Zombie novel, stops by to discuss life, literature, and theology with me!

If you haven't read it, Pastor Pay's book EccleZia is about a small town pastor who has to shepherd his family and his flock through the zombie apocalypse. It's a great book that I had a very hard time putting down. It's jam packed with solid action, great zombie stuff, comforting theology, and a beaut...

Philosophy for the People host Pat Flynn joins me to discuss the philosophical arguments for God, the problem of evil, and classical Christian thought. It was such a great time, and I really enjoyed listening to Pat on these subjects.

He was so kind and patient explaining philosophical concepts to me, and while it felt like drowning from time to time, it was so enlightening and I learned so much.

I hope you enjoy this episode!

In this episode, my Dear Brother in Christ Stuart Keenan comes on to discuss what it was like to grow up Baptist, and the ways in which they get things right that Lutherans sometimes get wrong.Β 

We should never grow complacent in our faith, and there are many things we can learn from other expressions of Christianity that can benefit us. I hope this episode is as fun and informative for you to listen to as it was for me to record it...

Listen along as I talk with Tabitha Edwards about her journey through the wilderness, and how she came out of Charismatic and New Age beliefs into the comforting arms of Christ.Β 

Tabby grew up Charismatic, watching word of faith televangelists, and that led her down a path of polytheism, new age ideas, and all sorts of dangerous places. Eventually our Lord Jesus found her and brought her into the Lutheran Church, where she has found...

Pastor Tony Pittenger, of the ELS, wrote an incredibly detailed study of Handel's Messiah, accompanied by some beautiful custom artwork. In this episode I get to sit down and speak with him about what, in his words, started as a lazy way out of a Bible study, and ended up being an all-consuming obsession.Β

After a ton of begging, schedule checking, and Sunday nagging, I was finally able to get my own pastor, Joe Christina, to come on the podcast!

Joe and I talk about tons of things! Vicars and vicarage, ministry and its challenges, the armed forces, what it's like to live where we live, Christian fellowship, and more!

With this episode you get to listen to what a real conversation between my pastor and me sounds like.

My very dear friend Madelyn Rose Craig was kind enough to come on my podcast and discussion creationism, language, and her work on her book Names, Nations, & The New Testament.Β 

Maddy and I spent a very long time talking through a ton of different issues, some briefly (Nephilim), some very in depth (the impartation of language to humanity), and it was such a lovely time.
