On Pop Theology Podcast: Episode 25 - Sad Is Just Happy For Deep People

by Ben Howard

Ben, Sebastian, Jesse and Ryan talk about the manufactured happiness of churches from the "Too Blessed to be stressed" mindset to having all songs played in a major key. We talk about why Ben has a hard time being happy on Ash Wednesday, the importance of liturgical traditions, and how Scrubs can teach us about balancing joy and pain. Also, Jesse and Ben trade Anne of Green Gables and Doctor Who references to explain their points as true nerds are wont to do. Join in and enjoy as we talk about how the church can be both happy and sad as it attempts to embrace the reality of everyday life.
