We go back to Germany and see the efforts of Martin Bucer to bring about an agreement with the Lutherans. His efforts are tireless and thankless. And in that, there is a great lesson for us about our attitude as we go about the work of Jesus.
Just a quick look by myself at James 2 since we couldn’t schedule a new recording. James 2 from the perspective of loving others as ourselves and the law of love. Job’s friends may make an appearance as well.
The Schmalkaldic League is formed and Lutherans have peace with the Emperor, but have little to give to the Reformed. Remembering the situation is not uniform throughout the Reformed world in 1532.
The gang is back to start up the second chapter of James. Want to know how we favor the rich today since we don’t have seats of honor, then this is your podcast!
As we continue our walk, we are walking into the mountains of France and French speaking Switzerland where the Reformed faith bloomed prior to the Reformation. We follow Farel as he takes the gospel to Geneva, and to groups who already had it.
Wait don’t click away! Give this a listen even if it is a solo podcast and about Pentecost. The Holy Spirit and the dangers of not talking about the Holy Spirit are briefly explored. Give it a try, what can it really hurt?
Wibrandis Rosenblatt sometimes known as the wife of the Reformation, sometimes the widow of the Reformation, serves as a good reminder that those who followed the Reformation were not all men, but still worthy of praise.
Pilgrim Talk gathers the gang again to talk about James 1:26-27, set the table for chapter 2, and play a little Jeffersons. Listen to the discussion on undefiled religion before God and what James is saying to us today.
This Bibliotheca Palatina avoids the theological and goes for a little more light reading. It takes a look at the Blackwell Philosophy and Pop Culture series, The Onery Gene by Warren Embree, and the Collected Short Stories of F. Scott Fitzgerald. Yes, short stories. Underrated reading material. Give it a listen.
