Episode 146: Activism, Prophetic Acts and the Act of Marriage with Jonathan Martin.

This week, Al, Greg and Scott are joined by writer and speaker Jonathan Martin who was in Ireland to speak at Rubicon+ (and see four – that's right, FOUR – U2 concerts). They talk about justice, activism, prophetic theatre and how the Kingdom of God can confront toxic and unjust systems. It's more light-hearted than it sounds ... particularly when we get to Tim LaHaye's 'The Act of Marriage'.

This week, Alan, Greg and Scott talk about the 'Statement on Social Justice' that was recently released by John MacArthur and signed by 3000 other leaders and churches.

Episode 142: I Know What You Did Last Summer.

The lads are back from their summer 'break' and thinking back on what has been a strange year in Ireland. Between the referendum about the 8th Amendment and the visit of Pope Francis, we've learned a lot about faith and culture and the conversations our country is having about both. Join us as we reflect on 2018 so far!

Episode 140: Rugby, Rend Videos and the Royal Wedding.

This week, join Greg, Alan and Scott as they talk about what happens when Al brings Greg to a rugby match and that discussion alone breaks Scott emotionally. They also talk about the royal wedding, the attention Bishop Curry's sermon garnered and what we can learn from moments like this.

Episode 139: Liturgical Trends and the Work of the People.

This week on the show, Al, Greg and Scott talk about a recent Barna survey that explored how liturgy and tradition are perceived by different generations and demographics today. Why are some leaving free-form churches to embrace traditional expressions while others head in the opposite direction?

Episode 138: Deconstruction, Distillation and the Millennium Falcon.

This week, Alan, Greg and Scott talk about the differences between deconstruction and distillation when it comes to our faith. Some say that deconstruction helpful but for others it's a dirty word. Do we need to understand it a different way? The lads discuss Rev Conor Gwin's article in Mockingbird called 'Closer Than You Think.'

Episode 136: Accountability, Trust, Intimacy and Honesty.

This week, the lads share survival stories after Greg's trip to Lynchburg, Alan's 17 Easter Services and whatever it is that Scott does! They also discuss Beth Moore's brilliant article in Christianity Today on the '5 Keys To Accountability'.

Episode 134: What Millennials Leaving Tells Us About What Church Is Getting Wrong ... Pt. 1.

This week on The Graveyard Shift, Alan, Greg and Scott talk about Sam Eaton's recent FaithIt article entitled '59% of Millennials Raised in a Church Have Dropped Out ... And They're Trying To Tell Us Why.' It will come as no surprise that we ran out of time and had to cut this into two parts ... which tells you a lot in and of itself. Here's part one!

Episode 133: The Habits of Highly Obnoxious People.

This week on The Graveyard Shift, Al, Greg and Scott discuss the habits of highly obnoxious people as laid out by Dianna Booher in HuffPost ... and try to figure out how many of these habits are guilty of! (It's most of them. They are guilty of most of them.)

Episode 132: Snow Business and Show Business - The 2018 Oscar Special.

As Ireland recovers from the mayhem of what Canada would call 'a day in late spring', the lads talk about Ireland's obsession with bread and the Academy's obsession with The Shape of Water. As they do every year, they made predictions on the big winners and Scott scored the same amount he does every year despite only seeing one of the films.

Episode 130: ****hole Countries, 'The Benedict Option' & Pushing Past The Inner Clown.

Greg talks about his plan to go full mime in Berlin as he puts on his second-place game face while Alan is nominated for The Golden Cleric Award. Once we finish with that, we invent Daniel-Day Hasselhoff and talk about Donald Trump's recent controversial comments on '****hole countries' and the polarising reflections of Rod Dreher in the American Conservative. Join us as we discuss the issues this raises within Christianity and what it means for how we see and talk about others.

Episode 129: Doubt, Deconstruction & An Autopsy of The Last Jedi. [SPOILER ALERT]

This week on the podcast, Al, Greg and Scott spend far too long arguing about the vices and virtues of The Last Jedi. Scott makes many convincing arguments about why the film is terrible but, then again, he also writes these blurbs.

Once that's over (around 18 mins for those who want to avoid it) they dive into their main topic: As a Christian, is doubt a healthy or an unhealthy part of our lives? In particular, they look at Bailey Jo Welch's article in Relevant, 'Are We Allowed To Ask God Questions?'

Episode 127: Make Antrim Great Again.

This week on the podcast, Al, Greg and Scott discuss a recent Irish Times article about an Antrim church complex described as a 'self-contained holy village.' We talk about the strengths and weaknesses of this kind of model, the cultural differences that shape how we evaluate such things and what it means to bind ourselves to the fate of the wider community. But all that serious conversation takes a backseat to the brilliance of our Star Wars puns, #AskAbstractGreg and his Carol Service suit made of €100 notes.
