This is a different show this week. First of all, apologies for the delay in release, as Amy and I (Christian) had to make an emergency trip to be with Papa Russ while he died. You’ll hear more about it in the show, actually.

It’s a somewhat shorter and differently structured episode this week. For one, we’re missing Slim (he’ll be back next week), and we’re not doing an interview, recommendations and fear of the week. Instead, we wanted to share an essay I wrote about our trip, followed by what I think is a pretty epic sermon Amy delivered on Thanksgiving Sunday.

I hope it offers some thoughtful fodder, and we’d love to hear from you about your experiences or thoughts related to these pieces. Just drop an email or hit the Speakpipe tab on the right edge of any page at We might even share a few on a future episode.
