What we have here is a disputed title for the day -- albeit, a gentle one! It is either The Baptism of THE Lord or The Baptism of OUR Lord, depending upon your liturgical flavor. Either way, Bubba and Bubba are back with more homiletical and theological gerrymandering for your listening pleasure! Special musical guests are Silent Partner and Karla Bonoff.
Whilst Delmer and John are on a bit of a holiday break, here is a replay of our episode from 2013 dealing with these texts for the First Sunday after Christmas. Happy holidays, all y'all!
For the Fourth Sunday in Advent, the Bubbas are moving right along with Isaiah, Ahaz, and Joseph -- all given a sign. Special musical guests are the Ladies' Quartet of Cameron Baptist Church in Cameron, NC, singing Christmas Has Its Cradle, Easter Has Its Cross. They done us a nice job!
For the Third Sunday in Advent, the Bubbas are all about the new hope that is coming into the world. John Williams sends us out after the session with the appropriately-titled theme to Star Wars, Episode IV: A New Hope.
The Second Sunday of Advent is here -- and along with it Delmer, John, and John the Baptizer! Prepare ye the way of your sermons and such for this week, as we bust out some homiletical nuggets and close the show with Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord, from the musical Godspell -- composed by Stephen Schwartz.
Also, be sure to check out Amazon.com on December 1st for the latest literary effort by the Bubbas, The Gospel According to Aunt Mildred: Stories of Family and Faith.
For the First Sunday in Advent, the Bubbas are wondering if they're really ready for the new church year to get started? Listen along and find out! Special musical guest is 1960's mega-superstar CCM singer/songwriter, Larry Norman with his signature song, I Wish We'd All Been Ready.
On this Sunday of the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe (variously known as The Reign of Christ, or Christ the King) -- the Bubbas finish the year with a survey of the history of the day, a little work on the texts, and some ideas for preaching. Well, there you go...
Musical guest are the Cambensis Choir and Orchestra of St. David's Hall, Cardiff, Wales with Crown Him with Many Crowns.
Today, it's the Delmer Show (sort of) -- as Bubba #1 bravely carries on with the texts for the Twenty-sixth Sunday after Pentecost. John is down and out with a case of laryngitis, so you won't hear from him. But, it's all good as Delmer gives a few ideas on preaching the "Little Apocalypse" in Luke and its attendant passages. Special musical guests are Tennessee Ernie Ford and Andrae Crouch, with Soon and Very Soon.
The Bubbas are switch-hitting today and covering texts for All Saints Day, as well as the 25th Sunday after Pentecost (Proper 27.) Give a listen as we talk about "Who's a Saint, Anyway?" and getting ready for the "Big Day Coming." Musical commentary provided by Isaiah, G.F. Handel, and the London Symphony Orchestra with Comfort Ye.
For this 24th Sunday after Pentecost, Delmer and John debate who was shorter: Zacchaeus or Jesus? We also have a nice tune from Gaelic favorite Enya, performing Book of Days, soundtrack for the movie Far and Away.
