This week's card got Preacher Man in his "talking fast" personality - but that's only cause there's SO MUCH to know and share about why we can trust the Bible today is the Bible that was originally written. So, sit down and get ready to learn or be reminded of a handful of ways we can confirm that the Bible God has bestowed on us is the same word t…

Are you a spiritual person? Are we? This week's episode is all about musing on what it means to be spiritual and how that impacts us as individuals and our involvement in the world.

It's often the most common question people ask once the requirement of school and "staying at home" pass... what's my purpose? What's the point?

Do you have a church family? Are you a part of a specific church family that you feel called to and that you feel like you have an important place in?

This week's episode is on one of those "church words." But, whether it's a word you use a lot or have never heard before - it's a topic that NEEDS to be talked about more often.

It might seem obvious to assume that the Bible is important to Townsend and/or Preacher Man (but remember - assumptions can be dangerous), but have you ever stopped to wonder if that's always been the case?

Do you believe in miracles? Have you ever thought about what counts as miraculous or if simple things are the same sort of miracle as those big, amazing, shocking examples that some people can share?

This week's episode asks Townsend and Preacher Man to reflect on how they've intentionally taught faith to their children and how they feel it has gone.

Got a question you want an…

We're back on our "topic schedule" this week and musing on how each of us could be more encouraging to those around us (and maybe even to ourselves).

This week offered a chance for Townsend and Preacher Man to take a close look at just exactly what the Holy Spirit is and why it matters in the life of a believer. Is the Holy Spirit He, it, a ghost, or just a "good feeling" that we have when we're living a life of faith? People disagree on all of these things, but what does the Bible say? Let's ta…

Repentance is one of those "Bible" words. One we hear all the time in church - but occasionally one that we have heard so much we've forgotten what it means. So, this week Townsend and Preacher Man spend a few minutes together and look to answer the question, "what does it mean to repent?" Got a question you want answered or a topic you'd like to h…

Maybe you've heard of "The Way of the Master," or "The Roman Road:" memorized ways that seek to teach us how to share the good news of Jesus to people we meet in the world. But what if the person you meet has never even heard of God. They have no familiarity with any of that "Bible" stuff at all. Does the conversation look the same? Do you stick to…

Does it matter that a lot of folks don't live the way they believe? Does that sort of life have consequences? Maybe it's easy for us to say, "well, duh. Of course it has consequences." But, if we all agree to that, why are there so many examples of people not living a life that matches what they preach? This week, Townsend and Preacher Man turn the…

It's Christmas Time!! So - we're all going broke, right? Hopefully not, but is it possible that we've created lives that are overly focused on our possessions and the money we need to obtain more at the cost of our relationship with God and the peace that comes from having "enough"? Spend some time listening to this week's episode and see if you're…

A topic that some consider best avoided - not because it doesn't exist, but that it's difficult and best dealt with as "out of sight, out of mind." But, that ain't us...

Find out how Townsend and Preacher Man feel about it in this …

Is it true that you can always tell a person's priorities by looking at where they invest their time, their skills, or their money?

This week Townsend and Preacher Man take a look at that top…

Bad things happen. They happen too often. In fact, they happen enough for this to be a topic we're dealt with before on this podcast (Episode 136 - for example). So, if they happen so often, wouldn't it be useful if we knew how to make sense of it all? This week, Townsend and Preacher Man consider how a person might (or might not) make sense of the…

Not that we're all just sitting around using each and every you-know-what kind of illegal drug, but we live in an interesting time where some things are legal, others aren't, and then some haven't been but maybe will become legal before too much longer.

There sure are a lot of teachings in that ol' Bible you got there. Surely, because it deals with folks living a LONG time ago, there's something in there that we can ignore. A teaching or two that are just no longer applicable to us here in 2023... right? Listen and see if Townsend and Preacher Man think that's the case. Maybe it's an outdated teac…

A topic that required sharing a positive about yourself?! More difficult that you might think.

At some point in a person's life, they each get told to do something they don't want to do. And, if the mood is just right (and the person is under 10 years old) the response might be something like: "You're not the boss of me!" But how exactly does that work? How does authority play a role in our daily lives and when are we allowed to buck the sys…

Everyone living gets the privilege of aging - it's a proven fact. But, what sort of plans do we make for how our faith will be used as we age?

Denominations; if you attend church, most likely you're a part of one... but why are there so many? This week, Townsend and Preacher Man spend some time answering that.

Ben Franklin said that nothing could be certain in the world other than death and taxes. And, when you think about it, none of us will ever likely have a say-so about taxes. But death - what if we stopped to think about what we did now to affect what was remembered about us at our death? This week's question asked Townsend and Preacher Man to consi…
