catholic, joker, mental illness, movie
Spoilers. The horn sounds, so you have been warned. We skip any sort of plot summary and assume you've seen the movie. Three themes of economic injustice, mental health, and isolation interweave into one amazing character study called JOKER.

I read Amy Wellborn's article on The Hack and applying it to social media shenanigans of today. I know dozens of professional ministers that are hanging a question mark on everything now. Walk with me through the pain!

Recorded August 12: We talk Gomer's need for an assistant, which Gomer denies until a text message comes in and proves him a liar. We talk the Cincinnati scandals, of which Luke knows all the accused.

capitalism, catholic, politics, wages
This is what happens when one guy had 3 hours of sleep and the other guy is 3 beers in before the conversation starts. "Living Wage" <-- is this too vague to actually help guide business that wants to be righteous unto Yahweh? Gomer says TOO VAGUE. Luke says IS GOD EVEN REAL! It's a great episode of us yelling.

catholic, contentment, family, grace, happiness
I love the Stewart story! Conversion to Catholicism, dead-end unhappy life, a return to the land and farming, and pooping in a bucket, to discovering the grace of enough. Rest assured, her personal commitment to Christ will make you happy you suffered through Luke and me till the bitter end. She's amazing.

catholic, healing, hope, sex, young adults
The Catholic Young Adult scene is filled with hookups. We ignore this, we aren't doing ministry of any sort. Then we dive into Healing and then Hope. At the end, it's a SHOCKING story of hope and prayer.

First, Fergalicious. Then, Twittermaggedon. Finally, Luke asks Gomer how we can, outside of faith sharing groups (buy my book!), actually grow in our faith. Gomer lies in order to answer this question. In the end, you'll be enriched, engaged, and engorged on Glory. Also, OJ SIMPSON AND BILL COSBY ARE ON TWITTER!!! HAPPY FATHERS DAY!
