To Seminary or Not to Seminary? | Ep 55


There really isn’t much to say about this episode. We’re talking about whether or not you should go to seminary to be trained in ministry. Thomas used to be adamantly against it, but God changed some stuff and now he’s wrapping up his M.Div. in Chaplaincy. Bruce hopped right in when he felt a call to ministry, even though he no longer feels called to vocational ministry, and finished his M.A. in Christian Ministry in 2014.

All that to say… Maybe you go, maybe you don’t.

Here’s where we went:

Potluck: Not The Shack, Seminary, Serving in Church, & Adoption | Ep 37


Potlucks are Fun

It’s been awhile since Thomas and Bruce have been able to do an episode together, but they’re back. Technical difficulties put them out for a couple months, but they’re mostly fixed now. In this episode we did not talk about The Shack, mostly because our wives will next week, but also because we don’t like controversy. Just kidding, we like controversy. Instead, we used this episode to catch up on the last couple months, sort of a potluck of topics.

Seminary, Serving & Adoption

Okay, we did talk about The Shack a little, but not enough to ruin Sarah and Angy’s episode. Mostly we focused on sharing what God has been doing in our lives over the last couple months. Some of that stuff is pretty big stuff; kids being healed, adoption considerations, serving in our local church, and Thomas being part of the “system” by going to seminary.
