Rodcast 144: Laaaaaate

The below times may be off just a bit because of the into that says what I'm about to say anyway. We actually recorded this a month and a bit ago. It's been stuck on my broken computer, but I took the file off and am now posting it from my old, but not broken, computer. The stuff we talk about is old news, but maybe it'll be a fun listen.

Rodcast 140: 184th Annual

Alrighty, this is not timely. We recorded a couple of days after conference, but technical and user issues prevented the posting until now. You can see by the minutes that the vast majority is just chatting about the recent General Conference. Rhett joined by Skype along with a live version of Pete's traveling nephew, Kirk.

So it took a couple of weeks to post this one. Relax! What is it, the end of the world or something?

4:38 -- Jon's card (2.5/6)
12:43 -- Sunday school (Lesson 5: "If Thou Doest Well, Thou Shalt Be Accepted," Lesson 6: "Noah... Prepared an Ark to the Saving of His House" (with a huge tangent about sacrament meeting), Lesson 7: The Abrahamic Covenant) also Rhett's weird deacon's quorum story

86:55 -- The M-word (it's not what you think)

Link to Rhett's ill-advised lesson video.

Link to the "M-word" video (and yeah, I would say it's more about "P" than "M," but it's hardly a stretch to add the "M" into the mix).

Rodcast 137: Falling Slowly

Just in time for the Super Bowl.

Apologies in advance if you hate long things, but I think this one had even funner conversations than usual. The miracle of Skype allowed a better connection with Rhett and the bulk of discussion centered around some of the really far out Sunday school stuff from the Pre-mortal life, Creation and Fall. The result is a merry Mexican standoff of circular logic, disagreements and switched loyalties.

Quick note from Jon: While we were talking about lesson 2, I mentioned that we'd speak more of foreordination "two lessons from now." I meant to ask if Adam and Eve were foreordained to transgress, but I think I neglected to. Does this idea lend credence to what Rhett joked about in Judas being foreordained to betray Christ?

Here is that link from By Common Consent going of the Sunday school lesson on The Fall.

Here is the link about tithing that Rhett was talking about.

Rodcast 136: Resolution Solution

Sorry about the lengthiness of this one. Not only did we have a new guy, but the exhaustion from the holidays seems to have had a blathering effect rather than a shut-uppy one.

91:49 -- Resolutions

One more thing about Christmas. Isn't it weird that the Church uses Christmas as a reason to NOT go to church? Don't feel pressure to be all religious at Christmastime when your own religion doesn't seem to.
