Warning: this episode contains some "earthy" images
David Dark, in his book "Life's Too Short to Pretend You're Not Religious," makes the claim that everybody conducts their lives according to a controlling narrative. Geoff and Jimmy reflect on the idea that everybody follows some sort of religion, be it football, money, or success.
We also discuss the disastrous flooding in Houston. If you wish to make a contribution to the relief efforts, please visit the Diocese of Texas website, epicenter.org.
Why do bad things happen to good people? How could God allow such a world of catastrophic suffering to exist? How did Jordan Spieth make a quadruple bogey at the final round of the Masters? Geoff and Jimmy speak about all of this and more.
What role does politics play in the life of the Church? Geoff and Jimmy help navigate these muddy waters, always remembering that our true identity is in Christ. (Sorry for the poor audio. Our technology six-putted from three feet).
In an age when the Episcopal Church is facing decline, there are many who claim they have the path to church growth. Are these sound ideas? Also, how a king who died five centuries ago influences the modern sporting world.

At the 1999 British Open, French journeyman golfer Jean Van de Velde needed a double bogey 6 on the 18th hole to walk away with the Claret Jug. After a collapse of epic proportions, he carded a 7 and lost the ensuing playoff. Van de Velde's own reflections on his failure are a morality tale for Christians seeking to understand their own failure, success, and God's faithfulness.
