Michael recaps his vacation. The boys remember 9/11. Then talk about grace. Is it enough? We get it from God through faith. It’s so hard to give to each other. Why?
Our God loves us so much he sent his Son to die for our sins. Allah forgives without requiring the death of the innocent. Who is more gracious? Who loves more? The boys challenge the Christian worldview.
A father understands what it’s like to miss a kid once they get older and begin to find their own identity. It feels like the intimacy is gone. But the love from a true father never wains.

Last episode before the boys record again in person. Sean is finally getting excited. The boys eventually get into another conversation about prayer.

Michael starts off with technical difficulties. Then the boys nerd out on bbq. It is Passover. Respect to all our Jewish friends who celebrate the feast. The boys take turns explaining Passover and how it is fulfilled in Christ.
Michael butchers a joke. After some banter, the boys discuss a conflict between Kirk Franklin and his son. Why do we put people on a pedestal and are shocked when they fall short of our expectations? What should the response be from the Christian Church?
A sober joke leads to a discussion on another shooting of an unarmed black man in Orange County. Has being out of church reshaped how you see people? How often should we read the Bible? Does it change in your Christian walk? We’ll have to answer that last question in part 3.
Sean has new office lights. It would be nice if we had an Amazon promo code to let you buy it. Michael is reading Martin Luther’s Catechism. Sean is nerding out on Matthew 10. Putting a cap on January 2021.
How do we reconcile science and faith? How about faith and party lines? Can they all exist together?
