Two of three Lent Madness Distinguished Celebrity Bloggers join Ben and Colin at the digital roundtable. In this episode guests Laurie Brock and Megan Castellan discuss with us: Donald Trump vs. The Episcopal Church, Lenten disciplines, and Fox's live musical adaptation of the Passion. We also play a lightning round game of "Marry, Martyr, Monastery," and our guests have to choose saints to marry martyr, or spend a lifetime with in a monastery. 

 

How would a Donald Trump vs. the Episcopal Church battle play out? Does the Pope have the right to determine a "good Christian" vs. a "bad Christian" and good Christian behavior? 

What kinds of Lenten disciplines do our guests take on? Is Lent changing?

What do you think of Fox's live musical Passion hosted by Tyler Perry? Is this like Jesus Christ Superstar, or different for some reason? Should networks like Fox be telling the Gospel stories?

Which saints would you want to spend a lifetime with in a monastery?
