We are in the third week of Advent! This week on the Reluctant Hope podcast, Pastor Jonathan Steiner (Director for Evangelical Mission and Associate to the Bishop) sits down with Pastor Dan Johnson of the Pine Ridge Reconciliation Center to talk “polarization.”

The text for Wed, Dec. 16 comes from Malachi 3:16-4:6. Tangled Blue songs in this episode include “The Lips of John“, “Street Kyrie (with Emmanuel Philor Sr.)“, and “Come Thou Long Expected Jesus“. 

You can find the Reluctant Hope podcast at the South Dakota Synod website, Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Blubrry. And here are some links to the Advent 3B Playlist I’ve made for 2020… Songs of mercy, rock and roll to accompany Advent 3B and readings from Isaiah 61:1-4, 8-11; Psalm 126; 1 Thessalonians 5:16-24; John 1:6-8, 19-28

Happy Listening, Happy Advent!
