Greek for the Week!

fall-leaves-028-copy1

Debuting now on the Revs Podcast network…GREEK for the WEEK.

Chickpastor (that’s one of the Revs) gives a little Greek overview for the gospel reading for the Revised Common Lectionary. This week, that’s Matthew 18, in which Jesus gives us relationship advice.

DISCLAIMER: I am not a professor! I am not a serious Greek scholar! I just like translating the text every week and thought I would share for your personal enjoyment and/or sermon writing.

Big Game Challenge: World Hunger Smackdown!

In a VERY SPECIAL EPISODE, the Revs, on behalf of the Southeastern Synod, challenge the New England Synod to a fund-raising battle for world hunger!*

*May or may not have to do with the BIG GAME that is planned for February 5 between teams that come from each of our synods. We can’t say what it is because it is trademarked but it rhymes with Schmooper Toll.

Revs #7: The Revs Lean In

CLICK BELOW TO PLAY:

Two things happened this summer: The Lutherans (ELCA) chose a new bishop who happens to share one of our names (hint: NOT SCOTT), and we both read Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead, by Sheryl Sandberg.  These things are related, and we wanted to talk about women’s leadership, what we’ve both learned about gender tendencies, and how it can make the world a better place for all of us.

(We also got a puppy, but that’s beside the the point).
