Happy Thanksgiving one and all! We’ll be taking a few days off to celebrate with our families, so no new content til this coming Monday. But rest assured, we’re not leaving you hanging:

1. In conjunction with a certain upcoming Friday, we’re running a big sale on our Store! 25% off all Robert Capon titles, Churchy, Unmapped, Mockingbird at the Movies, and Mbird T-shirts & bags.

2. Three brand new podcast episodes for you to listen to:

  • The Mockingcast Episode 171: “Everybody Loves Dolly” in which RJ, Sarah, and Dave talk generational warfare (“OK boomer”), Sunday morning racial reconciliation, refugee puppetry, and America’s favorite Dolly. Also, Sarah gets bleeped for the first time — but probably not the last. Throughout it all, hope abounds.
  • Same Old Song “Advent 1 (A): Here We Go Again” in which Jacob and Aaron discuss the readings for the first Sunday of Advent, which are Isaiah 2:1-5, Romans 13:11-14, and Matthew 24:36-44.
  • PZ’s Podcast Episode 288: GPF. Which concerns the arrival of gratitude and peace at the end of life — or, better, way before the end of life — and the birth of faith for one’s safe “arrival” after death.

Best way to listen to all of our podcasts, btw, (if you have an OSX device) is via The Mockingapp! Available for free on the Apple App Store.

3. We’ll be sending out our big end-of-the-year newsletter and appeal next week. To get a copy, simply sign up for our Mailing List. Just be sure to submit your full postal address. We can’t do this without you!
