TF88: Sensus Fidelium, Dissent and how (NOT) to Change the Church - Part 1

Nothing makes our podcast more entertaining than when Brett is steamed about something. Listen as we unleash his inner Yosemite Sam on right ways and wrong ways to use the "Sensus Fidelium" to change the church this week on Thinking Faith! (PS: How steamed is he? We're gonna need two episodes for this one!)


TF87: Building the Kingdom of God

Wherein Eric reflects on the weird, unexpected and bold claims of Jesus Christ regarding the Kingdom of God and it's connection with our mission to proclaim the Good News to the ends of the earth. What is this Kingdom? Who or what reigns in our hearts? And whose job is this anyway? This week on Thinking Faith!


TF86: Growing In Faith, Growing In Christ with Guests Miles Meyers and Honni Lizee

We kick off Catholic Education Week with our favorite thing - STUDIO GUESTS! This week we found Miles Meyers, Coordinator of Catholic Education for the Regina Catholic School Board and Honni Lizee, a grade two teacher at St. Andrew's Catholic School lurking around the parking lot and decided to invite them in. We'll be talking about the new "Growing in Faith, Growing in Christ" religious education program currently being rolled out in our Catholic Schools, try to keep things down due to...


TF85: Worship and Praise and Foghorn Leghorn

What's the role of praise and worship in our lives? What should it be? What do we mean by praise and worship anyway? All great questions that deserve a great answer. Instead, you get Eric and Brett and whatever they can come up with - oh and Foghorn Leghorn. You get Foghorn Leghorn this week on Thinking Faith!


TF84: Spirituality and the Domestic Church with Guest Ryan Leblanc Part Deux

Trapped in a conversation that may never actually end, Brett, Eric, and friend and guest Ryan Leblanc try to work out how this faith and spirituality thing can and should work in the midst of family life. We'll be dragging you down the yellow brick road of intentions, rosaries, and Examens, Oh my! This week on Thinking Faith!


TF83: Spirituality and the Domestic Church with Guest Ryan Leblanc

Wherein we haul this guy in off the street and make him talk about church stuff, see just how far we can get on a cup of coffee, and figure out how faith and belief impact life and family in the wonderous cathedrals that are our homes.


TF82: Placuit Deo, The CDF, and Smacking Down Salvation Heresies

Does Brett have a clue how to pronounce Latin? What the heck is a CDF and what is its natural habitat? How do you get neo-Pelagianism out of your drapes? What is an acceptable substitute for neo-Gnosticism when baking? And what does any of this have to do with our eternal salvation? You really don't want to miss this week's Thinking Faith!


TF81: Our Easter Hope

Christ is Risen! Alleluiah! Alleluiah! And we just can't wait to celebrate with a special Easter Edition of Thinking Faith! This week we reflect on the readings of Easter Sunday and their call to a new, resurrected hope. Hope is one of those funny words which gets tossed around, more often than not, as a sort of wishing or dreaming. But, as one of our theological virtues, hope takes on a very different connotation. What exactly is Christian hope, and how can we live this out in our daily...


TF80.1: Bonus Episode! An Easter Message From Archbishop Donald Bolen

A brief Easter message from Archbishop Donald Bolen providing a reflection on the Easter experience of rising from the ashes to a new life of hope and joy. From Archbishop Donald, and everyone at the Archdiocese of Regina, we wish you and those you love a happy and grace-filled Easter. Christ is Risen! Alleluiah!


TF80: Truth, Freedom and Education

Wherein we pull ourselves out of zaniness and begin the difficult process of looney tunes decompression, indulge in a bit of blatant and thoroughly shameful self-promotion, and shine a light on the depths of modern culture hoping to discover a place for truth and freedom in education.


TF79: Made For Greatness Men's Ministry with Kevin Philip

Wherein we discuss stealing pens and pinching faces, collectively confront our innate 'John Wayne-ness', and realize our call to greatness with guest Kevin Philip. Somewhere in the midst of all of this, we'll even take some time to talk about the new "Made for Greatness" men's ministry Kevin is involved with and tell you when and where you can check it out. If we've piqued your interest you can join the next event on Friday, April 6. For details on time and location, head over to their...


TF78: The Challenge of Credibility

Wherein Eric and Brett's ability to pull off these podcast things is brought into question, they ponder what episode 100 might look like, and face the challenge of the Church's credibility in the 21st Century head-on. Do they actually know what they're doing? You be the judge on this week's Thinking Faith!


TF77: Prayer, Fasting, Almsgiving Lenten Retreat - Part 4

This week on Thinking Faith, we wrap up our Lenten retreat on Prayer, Fasting, and Almsgiving with a look at Prayer and it's role in off-setting our tendency towards an unhealthy personal pride that displaces our trust and reliance on God. As we bring things to a close you will once again have the opportunity to create a concrete prayer plan that will not only carry you through the Lenten season but, as with all of these practices, serve you well throughout the year!


TF76: Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving Lenten Retreat - Part 3

Our Lenten Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving retreat continues! This week we'll examine almsgiving as an antidote to our propensity to grasp at and possess those things of this world which are intended to be gifts freely given and freely received. As with last week, near the end, we'll take some time to fashion a concrete plan for incorporating this spiritual antidote into our daily lives.


TF75: Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving Lenten Retreat - Part 2

Last week we realized that, just as our bodies immune systems are locked into a daily physical battle to keep us well, so too are our Spiritual Lives caught up in a daily struggle to keep us well. This week we look at how fasting provides an essential balance to our propensity to 'overconsume' the things of this world. As todays segment comes to a close we'll even take some time to put together a concrete fasting plan that can carry us through Lent.


TF74: Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving Lenten Retreat - Part 1

With Lent beginning February 14 - which in relation to this podcast's release is tomorrow, we thought we'd invite you to join in a little 'At home Retreat' series for Lent. Over the next few weeks, we'll share segments of this retreat where we take a closer look at the practices of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving through the lens of their ability to serve as spiritual 'antidotes' to particular, spiritual ills.


TF73: That Time The CWL Asked Brett To Talk About Women Responding To The Holy Spirit

Once upon a time, a group of CWL women asked Brett to come speak about women being inspired by the Holy Spirit. Not one to shy away from a challenge, Brett gritted his teeth, said his prayer and set out into the deep. This is his story...


TF72: Xavier Returns - Our Post St.FX Relic Group Therapy

He came, we saw, we were completely overwhelmed by the unexpected graces! Of course, we're talking about the once-in-a-lifetime visit of the First Class Relic of one of our Church's greatest evangelists, St. Francis Xavier. Eric and Brett, along with guests Mary Polk and Anastasia Symchych take some time this week to sit down and discuss their experiences and the surprising graces experienced during and after their visit. St. FX returns and we need some group therapy on this week's...


TF71: Practical Eucharist Part 3 - Teaching about Remembrance and Anticipation

Eric and Brett conclude their series on teaching the Eucharist to parents and children with a look at Remembrance and Anticipation. They'll discuss practical ways to engage families in these very human, almost daily activities of recalling, re-living, and looking forward to current and future life events and how the mass itself invites us to actively participate in these kinds of activities on a practical and a spiritual level. We know you've been eagerly awaiting this conclusion as much...


TF70: Practical Eucharist Part 2 - Teaching about Meals and Sacrifice

They've talked about the theology and deep, spiritual insights surrounding meals and sacrifice in the Eucharist. Now Eric and Brett discuss how to actually teach these things to parents and kids in your sacrament's or religion class. They'll discuss the importance of family meals and how to draw those intimate connections between meals and sacrifices in our daily lives to the sacrament itself. Hope you're hungry this week on Thinking Faith!
