I never met Brother Rick Curry, and he passed away too soon at the age of 72 in December of 2015. However, all that being the case, I feel like I've actually gotten to know Br. Rick pretty well over the last few weeks. You see, we spent Advent and Christmas baking together, and you can get to know a person in a rather unique and special way when you spend some time together in the kitchen.
The presents are open, the ball has dropped, and discarded trees are slowly but surely making their way to the curb, but we here at Church Drunk will keep the party going for all 12 days of Christmas! Join Dizzy & Ges as we look ahead to the Feast of the Magi by discussing our own modern-day wise men (and women!) and what they would bring to the Baby Jesus birthday party.
Church Drunk's big ol' Ignatian Advent Examen adventure continues as Dizzy & Ges step out of the darkness and into the light. Join us as we wait in joyful, inebriated hope...and also discuss magical Advent calendars!
Did you miss us? After a bit of a sabbatical, the Church Drunk podcast is back in action with a long-overdue bonus episode/introduction to the upcoming season. To help us celebrate the launch of a new chapter in Church Drunk history, we are joined by two very special guests: Mrs. Ges and Baby Ges! So grab a cocktail, put it in a baby bottle, and let's do this.
Here at Church Drunk, we tend to believe that life gets a bit spicier when heroism is tempered with a bit of truly wretched villainy. I mean, who doesn't love a good fairy tale? And so, as our Summer Reading List continues, Dizzy and Ges invite you to put on your most indescribable hat and cry bejeweled tears of joy while wandering the winding corridors of Coffin Castle in James Thurber's classic The 13 Clocks.
If you've ever confuzzled the angel and the devil that sit on your respective shoulders, well then do we have the book for you! Join Dizzy & Ges as they continue their Church Drunk Summer Reading List with Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch. It's Neil Gaiman, it's Terry Pratchett, it's church nerd literary candy. You want it.
Season 4 wraps up with a wander through the early Christian communities and the lovely literature that they brought forth on the mystery and wonder of Jesus. This one goes out to all of our fellow bibliophiles, and especially to those select few non-canonical gospel fans out there (you know who you are!). Grab yourself a tall glass of Eastertide and join Dizzy & Ges for a good old-fashioned nerd out!
Eastertide has arrived! And with it, 50 days of feasting replace our Lenten fast. Congratulations, you've all made it to the pot of gold at the end of the grayscale rainbow that is Lent. Join Dizzy & Ges in this very special feast-centric episode of the podcast, in which Church Drunk seeks to answer the age-old question of what exactly will be on the menu when you take your seat at the Lord's table. Enjoy!
So around this time every year a very famous college basketball tournament is played, and sure, it's full of "madness" - diaper dandies and buzzer beaters and rim rockers galore. But you know what's really "madness"? Climate change, that's what. And trade wars. And corporate greed. So with that thought in mind, Dizzy & Ges set out to create a new kind of March bracket, one that pits the forces of chaos against the calming remedies that restore order and peace to our lives. It's late in Lent. We're at our wits' end. Join us for Church Drunk March Madness!
