We believe the Church is alive, and we're keeping our finger on the pulse. Priest Pulse hosted by Father Benjamin Gildas and Fr. Colin Chapman looks at relevant issues in the Episcopal Church and around the world with prayer, humor, and thoughtfulness.

It's 1am on December 24th and the Rev. Colin Chapman can't get his baby Grace to fall asleep or his sermons written. Yet, with a little help from some friends, he may just find the magic of Christmas.

We want to thank the hosts of the podcast the Collect Call, Brendan O'Sullivan-Hale and Holli Rickman Powell for joining us to discuss the seasons of Advent and Christmas in prayer and worship. We also play Priest Pulse Lightning Round with very special Brittany Spears trivia!

Thanks to Anna Courie, author of Christ Walk and Christ Walk Kids, for coming on the show to talk about keeping healthy during the holiday season.

Laurie Brock and Megan Castellan discuss their Holiday film favorites like the Bishop's Wife, Muppet Christmas Carol, Hallmark Channel movies, and why they don't like Love Actually. We also discuss our favorite Christmas albums of all time.

We want to wish you a Merry Christmas from everyone at Priest Pulse: Fr. Benjamin Gildas, Colin Chapman, Intern Lizzie, all of our contributors, and our wonderful guests. You, our listeners, have made this an incredible season so far and we are immensely grateful. Please take a moment to review us on iTunes and subscribe to the show.
