The Stories We Tell
The Stories We Tell
Today, we talk about one of my favorite parables of Jesus (and one of his most well known): The Lost Son found in Luke 15:11-32.
Coby joins me on this episode. However, we (... I) ran into technical difficulties. I lost the last chunk of our conversation (and one small part in the middle). But the heart of our conversation was still intact. So apologies to Coby and apologies to you, listener. Coby is the pastor of Ecclesia Clear Lake.

Passage: Luke 13:31-35Jesus in this passage describes God as a mother hen. What does that mean for us? And still -- why would I prefer Jesus to describe God as a mama bear or a tiger mom than a mother hen...?

A Note to Jim Liberatore+
Father Jim, rector of St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in Pearland (better known as the Pumpkin Church) has retired from parish ministry. But anyone and everyone who knows him knows he ain't retiring from Kin(g)dom work. I was out of town during his last full week and missed the opportunity to give him a card that the associate pastor was collecting. So, here's the audio version of the card I would've given him. Also, here's the link to Mosaic in Action.

From Methodist to Episcopalian: Part 1
"Why did you leave the Methodist church to join the Episcopal church?" That's the question I get the most on TikTok or when I meet new people. So here's the story. It's not as exciting or salacious as I'd like it to be. A lot of the situations I encountered were results of my actions (or lack thereof). Part 1 today. Part 2 next week. https://linktr.ee/JosephYoo
