The Tenth Sunday after Pentecost, Year C (August 18, 2019)

For the Tenth Sunday after Pentecost, John and Delmer are musing about peace and swords and the gospel. One of those tough Sundays to be a preacher! Musical guest is Elvis Presley performing Peace in the Valley. Oh, and apologies in advance for the audio quality -- our engineer was asleep at the switch this week.

The Ninth Sunday after Pentecost, Year C (August 11, 2019)

For the Ninth Sunday after Pentecost, the Bubbas are talking texts about faith -- that's a good thing! Special guest artist is Ricky Skaggs performing This World Is Not My Home

The Eighth Sunday after Pentecost, Year C (August 4, 2019)

For the Eighth Sunday after Pentecost the Bubbas are considering the meaning of life -- that's all! Special musical guest is Eric Idle, on behalf of Monty Python, performing The Galaxy Song

The Seventh Sunday after Pentecost, Year C (July 28, 2019)

For this Seventh Sunday after Pentecost, John and Delmer are praying -- well, at least we're talking about praying because Jesus is talking about praying! Paul contributes a little theology of the cross and New Star Tomorrow sings Listen to the Hammer Ring

The Sixth Sunday after Pentecost, Year C (July 21, 2019)

It's the Sixth Sunday after Pentecost and the Bubbas are visiting with Jesus, Mary, and Martha. Y'all come on in and sit a spell. Guest artist is Jim Reeves performing Have I Told You Lately That I Love You?

The Fifth Sunday after Pentecost, Year C (July 14, 2019)

It's a bonus episode for the Fifth Sunday after Pentecost, as Delmer and John have been flitting about the country quite a bit these past couple of weeks. What we have here is our thoughts from six years ago when these same texts rolled around. Hopefully, you'll find an idea or two for your preaching and preparation this week. Enjoy!

The Fourth Sunday after Pentecost, Year C (July 7, 2019)

On this Fourth Sunday after Pentecost, the Bubbas are talking good news and rejoicing -- what a great set of texts! Outgoing music is Joy, Joy, Joy (Down in My Heart) -- a "classic" children's song (that may be stuck in your head the rest of the day!)

The Third Sunday after Pentecost, Year C (June 30, 2019)

Elijah, Elisha, and Jesus -- now there's a tremendous trio! The Bubbas elucidate the texts for the Third Sunday after Pentecost and generally have a good time. Special musical guest is Mahalia Jackson bringing us Keep Your Hand on the Plow.

The Second Sunday after Pentecost, Year C (June 23, 2019)

For the Second Sunday after Pentecost (aka, Proper 7 and Lectionary 12), the Bubbas are talking about all those numbers and the texts for this Sunday, too! Special musical guests are Third Day performing God of Wonders.

Trinity Sunday, Year C (June 16, 2019)

For this Holy Trinity Sunday, the Bubbas are seeking to live into the mystery a bit as they consider the reality of God as Creator, Savior, Sustainer and a whole host of other trinitarian expressions. Casting Crowns performs Who Am I?, a great reflection on the Psalm 8 text, in particular.
