EP169: Post 4th Hang

It’s been a long while since recording or even talking. The boys get back together after vacation and the holiday.

Two openly gay black guys are running for congress. Is this a first? Is this a big deal to celebrate? Shouldn’t it already be a thing if it’s not?

Sean is now a licensed officiant. And the boys share stories from the 4th.

EP168 Rescoping the Church

We missed Sunday, but that’s gotta be ok. Michael shouts out his moms. Sean and Brooke go on a treasure hunt. Michael is building a new privacy fence.

Sean gloats about his new TV a bit. Michael bought a 55”. Sean went home and bought the 65”.

The boys talk about an interview from the podcast, “Ruminate”. The discussion was on what the church should look like post Covid. If it all comes down to money at the end of the day, how can you really rescope the church?

The guys give their opinion of what the church should be vs what it is today. Community is more effective than church.

EP165 Honoring Juneteenth

Michael goes solo in celebration of Juneteenth, the 155th celebration of the emancipation of black slaves in America.

He breaks down the history and gives some pointed direction on how to celebrate the day. He also discusses “white guilt” vs advocacy.

EP162 We Can’t Stop BLM

EP161 Another Raw Convo

Michael has another solo convo and gives a bit more perspective on what it is like being black in America. He dispels some myths and provides some insight as to what is going on around the country today. It’s another tough podcast. But, some things still need to be said. Black Lives Matter.
