God is big! But is God too big to fit into one religion? Andy discusses a bumper sticker that makes this claim with two colleagues, Theology teacher, Wes Bareford, and, Biology teacher, Ben Fisher. Get a copy of the discussion guide we used for this episode at the andywrasman.com's Reconnect Episode 13 blog post.
Andy found a bumper sticker at a New Age trinket shop in Ashville, NC. The sticker reads, "In the end, there are three things that shall last, faith, hope, and love, and the greatest of these is love." This statement comes from the Bible, 1 Corinthians 13:13 to be precise. However, the sticker has no citation to the Bible verse, and faith, hope, and love are spelled using various religious symbols. What do the makers of this sticker intend to convey stripping the Bible citation and incorporating all of these religious symbols? Andy has created a dicussion guide for this episode, accessible at andywrasman.com . He uses this guide to discuss this sticker with two of his high school students.
Andy saw a Morpheus meme that read, "What if I told you, you didn't have to dress a certain way to go to church." With a slew of Facebook comments on this image, Andy brings the feedback to Reconnect to discuss church attire with George.
There were way too many topics, stories, and scenarios pertaining to church attire that were critiqued, questioned, and addressed to be able to give a brief summary description for this episode. Just press PLAY.
