Belief in God

“Nobody, not even an angel, can know all the different ways in which people accept the Lord.” (HD 86)

In this episode, Todd, Chris, and Pearse discuss belief in God. The group debates whether a belief in God is sufficient or even necessary to get to heaven. Does faith in God make you happier? We also mention the video "Head Bullies" and ask, "Can you convince someone else that God exists?"

Christmas and the Annunciation to Mary

Merry Christmas! In this episode, Calvin, Pearse, and Todd talk about the Christmas story, especially the Annunciation to Mary from the Gospel of Luke. We discuss what the story means to us today, not just as a piece of history, but also something that happens again and again everyday. What is the Christmas Spirit, and how can you get into it? What holds us back from feeling the joy of Christmas? What is your favorite part about Christmas?
