Each week we look at the readings and discuss what they mean from our perspective in our culture and in the time and culture they were written. In this episode we look at the story that brought about the elders gaining the portion of the Spirit given to Moses, how the overabundance of things can lead to rot and death in your spiritual life, and try to figure out if Greed plays a role in all the readings this week or if Alanna is just poetically stretching the definition.
This week we look at the readings in light of the scandal rocking the church and discuss what they mean from our perspective in our culture and in the time and culture they are written in.

Peace that Christ can give to cultivate around you while others are cultivating war. The response to the second revelation of His Passion, humility and the call to greatness.
