In this episode of the show we discuss another Biblical character, Simon of Cyrene. How much do you know about him? Where is Cyrene and what was he doing in Jerusalem? Was he Jewish? Why was he (specifically) called upon to participate in the single greatest event in human history?
We cover all these questions and more as we look into a small yet significant person from the Bible.
As we prepare for the 4th week of Advent, we prepare for the birth of Christ, especially since it lands on Christmas Eve. With that in mind, what is the greatest gift you ever received? What is the greatest gift you’ve ever given? We discuss ours as well as the greatest gift the world has ever received, the gift of Jesus Christ.
If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to drop us a line. We are wanted to start a Q&A section of the podcast, so if you have any burning questions about the faith, drop us a note.
The third week of Advent, we are calling it The Living Joy. This week is a time of rejoice, a time of joy. But this time of year it’s easy to confuse happy with joy. We dive into this topic during this podcast, we hope you enjoy.
Feel free to leave your comments below, and thank for listening.

As the Holy Family is making their journey to Bethlehem, we reflect on our own journey. Are we standing still, stuck in the sand doing the same things over and over all the while bearing no fruit? What does our journey look like, what should it look like and (most importantly), what will it look like?
It’s sad to say, but depending on your age, names like; Ted Bundy, David Berkowitz, Jeffrey Dahmer, or John Wayne Gacy are household names. If those don’t ring a bell, how about The Zodiac Killer, The Son of Sam, BTK, or Jack the Ripper. The media has given murderers far too much attention and like moths to a flame, we are drawn to their stories with a misguided sense of curiosity.
One of the most famous of these killers passed away this past Sunday. Charles Manson died on November 19th, 2017 in a hospital in California. Learning over the years what he’s done, why he did it, the control over people and what he’s convinced them to do (for decades), along with the photo’s of him in the press, it’s easy to think this guy is the epitome of evil.
So the topic we cover in this podcast is, on the heels of the death of Charles Manson have you ever considered praying for the conversion of such a soul? Give it a listen and let us know what you think by email or in the comments section below.
