Episode 14: "The Tower of Babel, Pentecost & Forgiveness"
As many of you already know that in the last four days (beginning on Tuesday, October 23rd, of this week) 14 pipe bombs delivered to 11 political targets were discovered. This Episode intentionally comes on the heels of the assassination attempts of high ranking political figures, both past and present, including two former Presidents of the United States. Even though the guilty person(s) who committed these detestable acts will have no one else to blame but themselves, does that excuse all others who have contributed to creating a climate of hatred and division in this country from culpability. Especially those who claim Jesus as saviour?

In Philippians 3:20 Paul tells us "Our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ..." Clearly, if our citizenship is in heaven then why do we try and make our earthly citizenships' the greater priority for bringing the kingdom of God to bear? Is this Biblical?

The text for this episode is John 4:3-42, Jesus' encounter with the Samaritan woman at the well. This passage reveals so much to us, especially about worship, and what it actually looks likes and means to worship God in "the spirit and in truth," and why this has nothing to do with a worship service and everything to do with what we do outside of a worship service.
