Big_Picture_Thumbnail_Big

[display_podcast] Welcome to the Big Picture Podcast. I’m Joel Fieri and on this podcast, we seek to begin and hopefully sustain a conversation about current trends, ideas and issues in the Church and greater society. On today’s podcast I’m going to change things up a little by combining the Big Picture segment of the show with the Great Cloud of Witnesses all into one segment, and also I’m going to let someone else do the talking, or the writing at least. I want to read an essay that was rece … [Read more...]

Jana Thumbnail Big 2

[display_podcast] From Jana Elizabeth Doughty: I turned 26 this year. Some people say 26 is the wrong side of 25. I don’t want to make any 55 and better listeners out there feel badly, so I’ll just say: Here is what I would tell my “early twenties” self.It’s okay. You don’t have to have it all figured out. (No one does and this doesn’t change). Spend time with God. As much as you can. Every morning. Every evening. Pick a time and stick to it. And when your alarm goes off and you don’t … [Read more...]

Real-Stuff-My-Dad-Says-Thumbnail-BIG

[display_podcast] As we get older, we tend to reminisce about the days of our youth, often to a fault. And, according to my boss, Joel Fieri, the Baby Boomers, in particular, are too often too guilty of over-romanticizing the Groovy Old Days of the 60’s and early 70’s. As Billy Joel sang, “The good old days weren’t always so good and tomorrow ain’t as bad as it seems”. Now, in my childhood and teenage years, I remember hearing all about how wonderful those hippy days were – revolutionary times … [Read more...]

Jana Thumbnail Big 2

[display_podcast] From Jana Elizabeth Doughty:I just ate a macaroon that I thought had vanilla filling, but it was lemon. #firstworldproblems Hand wash only.  #firstworldproblems My customized MacBook Pro hasn’t shipped yet.  #firstworldproblemsThis hashtag is hilarious.  It’s witty.  It’s clever.  It’s true.  These are silly things.  Miniscule surface things that in the grand scheme don’t matter.  But they matter to us.  They’re problems.  Big or small.  And they accumulate quickly. … [Read more...]

TTC-thumbnail-v2

[display_podcast] From Dana Avant, Vice-President of Wisdom Matrix: We are continuing to look at how the woman described in Proverbs 31 can be used as an example for our own lives in the 21st century. Firstly, let’s review what we learned in part four, when we looked at verses 17 and 18: a modern Proverbs 31 woman spends time each day clothing herself in strength. She is strong spiritually, physically, mentally and emotionally; and she spends time and effort keeping strong. Her work is prof … [Read more...]
