As far as long and winding roads go, Church Drunk's path has been much windier and perhaps even quite a bit longer than we ever could have anticipated. As we transition out of Eastertide and into another long, summery stretch of Ordinary Time, we're going to be taking a bit of a step back to do some evaluating of where this road is headed. We're not quite sure where all this musing will lead us, but we know that the story of Easter and resurrection and rebirth means that the story will always keep unfolding, even if you have no idea what the next chapter is going to look like. So pull up a chair, pour yourself an old favorite, and join Dizzy & Ges for a look back at five years of Church Drunk, and maybe help us to take a peek at what's around the bend. This is Episode 103 - Resurrection!
Episode 100 – This Here Libation
You know that feeling where you start a thing, and then you blink an eye and all of the sudden you're doing that same thing...but 5 years, 100 podcast episodes, and several worlds away from where you started? Yeah, us too. Anywho, it's Lent, and Dizzy & Ges are still stumbling their way forward with the help of lukewarm drinks, boring temperate fruits, and This Here Flesh by Cole Arthur Riley. So raise a
Episode 90 – Land of P-Lenty
So, usually it takes a few weeks to really get into the slog of Lent. By about Week 5, you can almost guarantee that Dizzy will be moaning about how long Lent is, and Ges will be (either intentionally or unintentionally) breaking all the rules. It's kind of an annual tradition. But with Lent 2021, tradition has been thrown to the wolves. We're not even two weeks in, and it feels like all bets are off. Did Lent even start? Does anyone care if we eat fish on Fridays? Is this the desert, or did we just install a sandbox in our own backyard just to keep our toddler from tearing apart the house? For answers to these and other of life's big questions, pull up a chair (and a cock-up!) and join us for Episode 90 - Land of P-Lenty!
Episode 89 – This Salty Cock-Up
So, Lent...it's a thing now. And our world looks so different for it, right? Well, maybe not. But the great thing about a season that lasts 40 days is that you get an opportunity to roll into it slowly, and there will still be a long road ahead. If you (like us) are still searching for what Lent 2021 will really look like, and need some ideas on how to practice your prayer, fasting, and almsgiving (as well as our second favorite holy trinity of reading, drinking, and complaining), then Dizzy & Ges have you covered. Grab a beverage and pull-up a chair for Episode 89 - This Salty Cock-Up!
Episode 49 – God’s Mechanics
Here at Church Drunk we'd like to think that our address puts us squarely at the intersection of Faith and Reason (though our irrational side often does get the better of us!), and if this is truly where we reside then our neighbor across the street in this dreamland scenario would surely be Brother Guy Consolmagno. Thus, to finish out our Church Drunk Summer Reading List, we present to you God's Mechanics, Br. Guy's impassioned plea for a dialogue between religion and science. Pour yourself something cosmological in a beaker, and join the conversation!
