2020: Year of Joy! Right? Well, maybe not quite. However, that gives us all the more reason to reflect on the year that was through the lens of this third week of Advent, where joy is the name of the game. So grab a cup of happy juice and come get gaudete with Dizzy & Ges as we light the pink candle (IT'S ROSE!) and find some space in our hearts for a modicum of mirth in Episode 85 - Re: Joice!
It's peace week in Advent Land, and there couldn't be a better time for it! While "peace" might not be the first word that comes to mind when we think of the utter chaos of 2020, this may well serve as an important reminder that this is our annual opportunity to open up a bit of space for the Prince of Peace in our hearts. So grab a cup of something that helps you to relax, breathe deeply, and perhaps even chortle a "ho ho ho" so that you can join Dizzy & Ges for the celebration of St. Nicholas Day and Episode 84 - Whirled Peas!
Church Drunk has you covered with a Christmas Countdown unlike any other. Throughout the season, Dizzy & Ges will be posting our favorite Adventy quotes, songs, musings, and literary adventures, along with a weekly challenge designed to make your Advent overflow with hope, peace, joy, and love...and possibly (hopefully) bourbon!
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!
Have you ever wanted to just pack up and get away from it all? Perhaps to somewhere nice like, you know, a cave in the middle of the desert? If your dream vacation is a rock for a pillow, gruel 3 meals a day, and naught but the Bible for wild and imaginative entertainment, then perhaps you've got a bit of desert father (or mother) in you! In this week's podcast, join Dizzy & Ges for a wander into the desert to get funky with St. Antony and the rest of the hermit horde.
Okay, so there's just 3 days left of Advent because when Christmas falls on a Monday we throw the entire Week of Love out the window (makes total sense). So perhaps this is a bit let in the game. Nonetheless, it's December 22nd, and we've all been listening to far too much Mariah Carey since Thanksgiving. Far. Too. Much.
Church Drunk continues to roll through Advent with a look back at Peace Week. But as Dizzy & Ges begin to realize just how chaotic and peace-less our world seems today, they quickly change gears to discuss a seasonal favorite - Christmas songs! So light a candle, pour your favorite purple cocktail, and may the Force be with you...and with your spirit!
