catholic, conflict, kittens, pronouns
We hit up our Patreon fans (Facebook folks, coming soon!) for questions and BOY O BOY did we get a lot. We're talking questions about putting Pronouns in your email signature, is "authenticity" overplayed, have you ever had conflicts with female friends, how do you and Luke resolve conflict, how much better is Gomer and Luke?

catholic, narrowness, orthodoxy
Luke opens with a song. A terrible, terrible song. Gomer goes through the September Challenge with interesting comments on food and diets from various folks. Then Taylor Marshall (meow) comes up on the show, along with Fr. James Martin. Here's the deal. After we did this show I was cleaning the playroom in my house while my wife and kids were at the YMCA. While doing mindless labor, I listened to Catholic Stuff You Should Know, "Drinks after Lord's Day", and realized that we kind of talk about the same thing- but one's from a priest perspective and the other is from our sad minds. I think you should listen to it after our show.

birth, catholic, death, hope, pregnancy, sorrow
She's here! Everleigh Carey is big, beautiful, and a female version of Luke. Oh, but it was a tumultuous birthing experience filled with yogurt, Luke laying down a lot, an emergency C-section, and all the things that make parents anxious. Then Gomer shares about the tragic death of a family member (pray for him) and the need to just be with one another.

Quick catchup on Harry Potter reading, then a dive into Marriage Prep, Grace & Nature, a really small bit on Star Wars numbness, followed by Luke examining the non-profit world of giving and how that will and will not affect a lot of churches.

In this episode, we discuss the fakeness of acting and why the Church Fathers hated it and how that applies to our lives. Then we take fun and thoughtful listener questions from our Facebook Live video and answer them relatively briefly, for a change.
