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

Last updated on March 14, 2017

This week on Thinking Faith we have Michelle Braden and Braden Kuntz joining us once again fro our Youth Ministry Office. 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;

Have you heard the Good News? We've all been baptized as priests! But wait you say, don't we already have ordained priests? If you're head is spinning with all this priest-y stuff tune in and Eric and Brett will try to clear up the connection between the Sacrament of Holy Orders and what is sometimes called the "Priesthood of the Baptized." The world is our altar, and we’re filling it with sanctifying grace!

TF23: Thinking About Transubstantiation

Last updated on February 21, 2017

Transubstantiation - as fun to say as it is to do! This week, Eric and Brett try to get to the bottom of this mystery that is central to our understanding of the Eucharist. How it is that through the prayers of the Mass and the actions of our priests, bread, and wine can become for us the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ? If you've ever wondered how this all works, or how to talk about what happens at the Mass with non-Catholic friends, you'll love this one!

This week we're talking scripture once again as Eric and Brett discuss some valuable tools for reading and understanding God's sacred Word. We'll look at how knowing what genre of writing we're reading can make all the difference. We'll also talk about the difference between a literal (as in literary) reading of scripture and a literalistic one, and we'll take all these ideas for a test drive with one of Eric's all-time favorite books - the book of Revelation. The four horsemen are saddled and ready, so let's roll!
