SILY 597- The Circle of Wrenches

In my family, we have a generational heritage of working on cars. Well, except for my brother. He has no interest in working on cars and has asked me why I do it. He’s been known to buy a car without ever popping the hood to see what the engine bay looks like. It’s okay. He has skills in other areas, so I’ll give him some grace on that. For me, it seems like part of my DNA. I love the satisfaction I get from taking on a new challenge, pushing myself to learn a new kind of repair, taking that post-repair test drive…

S3E5 Amber 31422

We are joined by special guest Conor this week as we discuss “Amber 31422,” the episode in which Olivia’s true self finally comes more fully to light. We talk about our favorite moments and the many shoutouts to season 1, and we share some incredible feedback from listeners like Geoff (xforce11), Anna (Not Torv), Eric (or Eric from Pennsylvania as you prefer), ShelkyBean, and Patty from Canadia!

SILY 596- A Tale of Two Prayers

So I set aside time every day to pray. While I had no idea where I would end up, God did. While I had no idea what the makeup of my team would be, God did. While I had no idea whether or not I’d take over a new store or an existing store, God did. As I prayed, I asked God to shape me into the leader that my future team would need. I asked him to help me be humble, learn from Sammy the skills I would need, and prepare me for what lay ahead. I prayed for my team. I asked God to help prepare them. I asked him to work in their hearts to give them an attitude of humility and a desire to learn. I asked God to bless them and prepare them for the future we would have together. 

The Great Escape

Themed around groups of people making an escape, this month we look at two iconic Twilight Zone episodes: “Third from the Sun” and “On Thursday We Leave for Home.” Season One’s “Third from the Sun” presents a story steeped in the dread and anticipation of a nuclear apocalypse, following a desperate plan by a group of individuals to escape their doomed planet. Season Four’s episode, “On Thursday We Leave for Home” offers a look into the psychological and social dynamics of a leader who faces the reality of relinquishing control as his colonists prepare to return to Earth after 30 years. Both episodes masterfully explore the human condition under extreme circumstances, highlighting themes of hope, fear, authority, and the longing for safety.

SILY 595- I am a Blockhead

I thought the New Kids were amazing. Girls liked the New Kids because they were cute, I liked the New Kids because they were cool. I heard someone once say that girls want to be with the New Kids, and guys want to be the New Kids. That was certainly true for me. I bought magazines of them and hung their pictures on my wall. I studied their wardrobe and tried to find clothes that looked like them. One time while in Walmart I saw a poster of Jordan that I liked. I asked my dad if he would buy the Jordan poster for me. I still remember the look of disappointment on his face when it turned out to be a poster of Jordan Knight instead of Michael Jordan. He didn’t buy me the poster.

S3E4 Do Shapeshifters Dream of Electric Sheep

Things are definitely heating up in the Blueverse as Foelivia/Fauxlivia takes things to the next level to secure Peter’s trust and we learn that Senator Van Horn has been a Shapeshifter this whole time! Join us and special guest Sarah Clarke Stuart (author of Into the Looking Glass: Exploring the Worlds of Fringe) as we discuss “Do Shapeshifters Dream of Electric Sheep?”

SILY 594-The World Is Not a Stage

SILY 594-The World Is Not a Stage

Making the world a better place doesn’t just happen from stages in front of crowds of strangers. Whether it’s your family, co-workers, colleagues, or a room full of total strangers, you have an opportunity before you. That opportunity is one that allows you to communicate love and encouragement, truth and compassion, kindness and generosity. Look around you, ponder, and consider how you might be able to make the world better for even just one person this week. We can all be world changers, and even if it’s only for the world of one, it’s worth the effort. 

SILY 593- Remember the Time

SILY 593- Remember the Time

I’ve realized that I get most frustrated with my kids when they are making mistakes that I made when I was their age. Sometimes it’s something involving their friends, other times it’s the way they spend their money, and sometimes it’s mistakes I see them making with their boyfriend or girlfriend. It could be any number of mistakes really. When I talk with my wife about it, I usually end up saying, “I remember the time I did that.” I want so much for each of my kids to heed my advice and not make the stupid mistakes I made. I want to spare them the pain.  But I know that’s just not the way we humans operate. To err is human is painfully true.

We also talk about Olivia and how her true self is beginning to breach through the Fauxlivia/Foelivia facade.

592- Do I Take the Bible Literally

592- Do I Take the Bible Literally

I think it’s important to make a distinction in believing the Bible is true, and that the Bible should be taken literally. What I mean is, it’s possible to believe that the Bible is inspired by God, written down under inspiration by humans, and therefore, true (or inerrant). It’s also possible to simultaneously believe that the Bible should not be taken literally. Or better said, it’s possible to simultaneously believe the Bible should not always be taken literally. Rather than taking the Bible literally at all times, I would argue that the Bible should be taken as it’s intended.
