What's New

This week on Thinking Faith, in keeping with the Marian theme of this Month of May Eric and Brett discuss our Church's Marian Dogmas. We'll look at what the Church has to say about Mary's role as Theotokos (God Bearer), her Immaculate Conception, Perpetual Virginity and Assumption into heaven all through the lens of a very exciting dialog document produced by the Anglican-Roman Catholic International Commission (ARCIC) seeking common ground on Mary between Anglican's and Catholics. AND if this piques your interest, you can even read ARCIC's "Mary: Grace and Hope in Christ" document for free right here; 

Mary: Grace and Hope in Christ

And really, what could be better than free things and Mary?

In preparation for World Day of Prayer for Vocations on Sunday, May 7th, we've got a very special treat for this week's Thinking Faith! Chris Juchacz is a seminarian studying to be a priest for the Archdiocese of Regina. In this interview, featuring guest host William Sinclair of “The Real Truth About You Podcast”, Chris speaks openly and candidly about his own journey to the priesthood.

 

This week on Thinking Faith Eric and Brett step out onto shaky ground as they approach Paul's Letter to the Ephesians chapter 5 and try to get to the bottom of just what Paul means when he says "Wives, submit to your husbands". We're jumping in with both feet and eyes closed. Pray for us!

TF31: Thinking About The Resurrection

Last updated on April 18, 2017

This week the Christian world rejoices in our Risen Lord! What better time to sit down and do some serious thinking about the fact of the Resurrection. All four Gospels assert it, our Creeds profess it, and Saint Paul boldly declares  that “if Christ has not been raised, then our proclamation has been in vain and your faith has been in vain.” (1 Cor 15:14). This week on Thinking Faith Brett and Eric discuss what happened in the tomb on that Easter Sunday 2000 years ago and what the Resurrection means for us today.

This week on a special Holy Week Edition of Thinking Faith! We'd like to invite you to join us in a few moments of retreat. In preparation for the Triduum celebrations to come this Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday we're going to take some time to reflect on Christ's call to be the face of mercy that this world so desperately needs. Now, this is a few segments of a Lenten Retreat on the theme of Mercy that I delivered just a few weeks ago for the folks at St. Aloysius parish in Filmore Saskatchewan. We'll take some time to deepen our understanding of the merciful love of God, and discover the importance of experiencing the merciful love of God ourselves before we can be the face of Christ's mercy for others.

TF29: Speaking of Satan…

Last updated on April 4, 2017

Over the past several months and years Pope Francis has often been heard speaking about the devil and the reality of the spiritual battle we find ourselves in. This week on Thinking Faith, Eric and Brett discuss the reality of the devil. Do we really still believe in some creature called Satan? Is this just a symbol of evil and sin?  And what would his place be in the spiritual life and in our Catholic tradition? Throw some salt over your shoulder and join us in this episode we're calling "Speaking of Satan..."

This week on Thinking Faith! We are continuing our two-part series on Euthanasia and Physician-assisted dying begun last week. This is part two of a talk Brett gave to the Unitarian Fellowship here in Regina. As mentioned last week, if you find the prospect of speaking to friends, neighbors and family members who may not agree with you about these issues intimidating, these episodes will be a great help! This one starts off with a great tip...when in doubt, look for an appropriate Star Trek reference!

This week on 'Thinking Faith!' we present part 1 of a two-part series on Euthanasia and Physician-Assited Dying.  You might recall that we had our friend Leah Perrault in studio as Lent began discussing the recently released documents from the Saskatchewan Bishops on Euthanasia and Physician-Assisted dying.  Today we begin a two part series based off of a talk Brett gave on this very subject back in February to the Regina Unitarian Community. If you find the prospect of speaking to friends, neighbors and family members who may not agree with you about these issues intimidating, these next two episodes will be a great help!

TF26: Youth Ministry On The Road

These two have SO MUCH going on that it was hard to pin them down for an episode but we finally did it! They'll be telling us all about the amazing things they have planned in the diocese this Spring from the My Gen Rally to Youth Ministry workshops...and a party bus? Tune in and find out what's going on and how you can get involved.

This week on 'Thinking Faith!' both Brett and Eric are down for the count with nasty colds! Not to be discouraged, and in keeping with this week's theme, they've called their good friend Leah Perrault to join in discussing the latest documents released by our Saskatchewan Bishops on physician-assisted dying. We'll look at the challenges we face today in speaking about the issues sounding illness, dying and death and the invitation our bishops place before us to not be willing to enter into those difficult conversations, but to live now with our own deaths in mind. Are you ready to take up the challenge this Lent?

You'll find the link to these very important documents below;
