No. 51: "Bah," said Scrooge, "Humbug."

While equality in some areas has progressed, there is increased segregation when it comes to socioeconomic class. How should Christians respond in their own lives? Then, with Christmas around the corner, a conversation about Charles Dickens and his timeless classic A Christmas Carol which two of the podcasters are currently reading aloud at family breakfast every day.

No. 50: People vs. Things - A Debate

Bernard, Marianne, and Peter discuss sustainable living and whether it's greed or population growth that's destroying the planet (hint: at the Bruderhof we love people). Then a conversation about the feast day of St. Lucy or Santa Lucia and associated customs, some of which Marianne finds unsavory.

No. 48: St. Basil Wants You To Be Charitable

Bernard, Marianne, and Peter discuss a study in which people were asked about the relevance of the Ten Commandments. Bernard interviews Prof. Ian Randall about his new book on the Bruderhof and its connection to pacifist movements during WWII in England. Then a conversation about St. Basil in which Peter suggests that his sermons on money and possessions must have left listeners red-faced. Also, Marianne remembers someone who devoted her life to improving the lot of children with disabilities by means of a ground-breaking approach.

No. 48: St. Basil Wants You To Be Charitable

No. 47: Rediscovering Masculinity

Bernard, Marianne, and Peter discuss the flood of recent news vis-à-vis unwanted sexual advances and harassment of women by men in positions of power and how it points to a fundamental misunderstanding of masculinity. They respond to some listeners' questions regarding women's dress on the Bruderhof, address a listener's observation that a church today that lived like the first Christians would be considered a cult, and wrap up a conversation about David Bentley Hart's New York Times article on voluntary sharing in the Early Church. Here are some of the links and references from this episode: * Taize - www.taize.fr * David Bentley Hart on Christianity and communism - https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/04/opinion/sunday/christianity-communism.html * A response to Hart's article - https://www.americamagazine.org/faith/2017/11/06/are-christians-really-supposed-be-communists-response-david-bentley-hart * Samuel Gregg in "Public Discourse" on capitalism and Christianity - http://www.thepub...

No. 47: Rediscovering Masculinity

No. 46: Get Rid of Capitalism?

Bernard and Veery discuss if Christians should be communists and why millennials are criticizing capitalism. They also answer some questions from listeners and talk about why Hudson Taylor's approach to mission was revolutionary and can speak to us still today. Bernard asks listeners to write in and vote Peter off the show (he was experiencing technical difficulties and couldn't record) and also comment on the reduced length of the podcast. Marianne (who is traveling) and Peter will be back next week. Here are some of the links and references from this episode: Get Rid of Capitalism? Millenials Are Ready to Talk About It https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-11-06/get-rid-of-capitalism-millennials-are-ready-to-talk-about-it Are Christians Supposed to Be Communists? https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/04/opinion/sunday/christianity-communism.html Kids are living with their parents longer.

No. 45: Losing Our Identity, Losing Our Minds

On this episode: Bernard, Marianne, and Peter discuss whether the rise of identity politics is in part a result of family breakdown. Marianne contemplates whether Albert Einstein’s thoughts on happiness are really worth One Million Dollars. They also respond to listener questions about individuality in community and their experience of Christian unity with people outside of the Bruderhof. Then a discussion of John Wesley including the telling of a terrible joke. Here are some of the links and references from this episode: *The Primal Scream of Identity Politics http://www.weeklystandard.com/the-primal-scream-of-identity-politics/article/2010234 * The Ghosts of the Tsunami https://longreads.com/2017/10/24/the-ghosts-of-the-tsunami/ *Einstein’s theory of happiness https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worldviews/wp/2017/10/24/einstein-scribbled-his-theory-of-happiness-in-place-of-a-tip-it-just-sold-for-more-than-1-million/?utm_term=.22cbb3a0922e *Reformation Now!
