I found a way to motivate myself to cook dinner –listening to the Phil Vischer podcast.
Coming from deep but dorky conversations with my college friends, I feel a bit lost amid all this small talk as a newbie to the neighborhood. Phil’s roundtable discussions about the ups and downs and ins and outs of evangelical Christianity are filling in that gap. Phil invites personable and humorous personalities to talk about Christianity in refreshing ways. It feels just like the late night talks of my college days!
Erich and I find ourselves laughing at their goofy jokes and fist-bumping their honest desire to know God and critique the ways we’ve been told to find him. We’ll turn on an episode or two while whipping up dinner or lounging around on a Sunday afternoon.
I’ve never been “into” podcasts, but I can’t stop listening to this one! These are my favorite episodes so far:
“Saving the Bible with Glenn Paauw” (just read the Bible, and read it in conversation with other traditions — yay, ecumenicalism!)
“Returning to Hell with Preston Sprinkle” and “Talking about Hell! with John Walton” (fun facts about what we do and don’t know about what the Bible says about hell — fundamentalism got it really, really wrong)
“Pastors & Booze, Women & Work” (a great egalitarian conversation on, well, women and work)
What podcasts do you listen to?
