E29 Should “Christian” Mean “Family Friendly”

Movie night for youth group has always been too complicated an issue.

For the most part, if it’s totally appropriate it’s boring. If it’s engaging, there’s too many fast-forward moments to remember.

Then we’ll just watch Shrek.

Of course, the issue is a little more nuanced than that. But it does bring up a good question: Should Christian content always be family friendly?

What does family friendly even mean? For that matter, what does Christian mean?

That’s what we’re talking about in this week’s podcast.

E28 What makes a good church?

I imagine everyone believes they are part of a good church.

Have you considered what being a good church means? How do you know if you’re good? Is that something you measure, nurture or plan?

What do you do if you’re in bad church?

That’s a whole lot of questions to throw at you. But church is important. So it’s worth your consideration.

In this week’s episode, I asked the guys what makes a good church. We considered that good might not even be the best word to use.

E27 Psychic Numbing in Church

I’m processing the fact that the US surpassed 500,000 Covid-related deaths over the weekend.

I’ve had family members endure having the virus. I’ve known friends who have passed away from it.

How do you respond to a number like that?

I couldn’t help talk about it on this week’s podcast.
