The Laity – Episode 73

The Laity – Episode 73

What is my role as a lay person in the Church?

As laity we need to recognize how crucial we are to the Church.

This important discussion about the family of The Church – you and we who, without us, there is no Church – edifies all of us little people, and explores what we can and should do as members of the largest family in the history of the universe.

A little Mr. Rogers and some Bobby McFerrin to accompany us on this beautiful day in our neighborhood, Kristofer gets a bit philosophical at the risk of causing you to stop listening, and Beth makes some theological points in layman’s terms.

Thanks for joining us, neighbor!

The Incarnation – Episode 72

The Incarnation – Episode 72

What is The Incarnation?

More to the point, how do we approach it in our daily lives, particularly as we prepare The Way of The Lord during Advent?

In this fast-paced walk and talk, we cover this deep subject with good humor and solid exploration, without going into the theology too much.

It’s a fun and lighthearted twenty minutes while we honor and revere the dangerous significance of this normalizing event of Jesus taking on skin and bones.

Family – Episode 71

What do we do about Family interactions during the holidays?

In perhaps our most fun episode to date in terms of just rolling with it, Beth tries to make a point while Kristofer goes off into la la land.

Music, movie, cartoon, disco, philosophy, sitcoms and saint references seem to come easily when one person comes from a solid family of origin and another comes from the family that put fun into dysfunctional.

But, seriously, this is good stuff with some actual pointers. And even Larry gets into it…

LOTS of show notes with timestamps here, too.

Celebrating Advent – Episode 70

Celebrating Advent – Episode 70

How is Advent celebrated?

Celebrating Advent is sometimes overlooked in anticipation of Christmas, but for a Catholic, Advent is that anticipation as we begin a new Liturgical Year.

In this episode we discuss the many ways our family does – and yours can – celebrate Advent, and not just with an Advent Calendar.

There are tons of ways to make it a celebration every day for all four weeks! This is how we do it…and we provide the resources for you to do it, too!

It’s All In The Little Things – Episode 69

It’s All In The Little Things – Episode 69

What makes our Catholic Faith work in our daily lives? With concrete examples and references from Monty Python to Frank Zappa, Kristofer and Beth explain how to eat an elephant – and pave the road to perfection with little cobblestones in our every waking moment. One of us is really good at this. The other is not – but there is still Hope for him!

Life – Episode 68

Life – Episode 68

What is Life? With some help from The Beatles, Deep Thought, Mikey, Topol and Fiddler on the Roof, we explore the Catholic perspective on Life, the Universe, and Everything. Well, at least as much as we can in 20 minutes!
