Today is a good day to die ... of laughter with Comic Belief! We're joined by fellow Episcopal priest, the Reverend Stacy Alan, and her husband, the irreverent John Poole (who takes a break from his own podcast, The Hidden Groove), to do a deep dive on a Star Trek episode. John suggested we talk together about everything that gets put on the table in the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode Rightful Heir, in which Worf experiences a crisis of faith ... and then has to decide how much truth the Klingon people can handle! Beware, friends: spoilers await!
We talk pretty freely about how the Klingon messiah Kahless returns, and what it would be like for this to happen in our own faith traditions (including John reflecting some on the differences in Buddhism). We spend time talking about different kinds of truth. After all, the first duty of podcasters is to the truth! Plus Megan shares her vision of what God's work life and personal life break down to.
So tune in to boldly go where thousands of Trek convention panels has gone before ... but never with Comic Belief, friends!
