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.

One of our amazing listeners commented that there was a surprising lack of deacons in the history of Priest Pulse guests. We decided to do an entire episode featured on the diaconate! In this episode, the Venerable Pamela Nesbit joins us to discuss the history and role of the diaconate. Do you think God is calling you to some form of ministry but you're not called to be a priest? Listen to the Archdeacon of the Diocese of Pennsylvania passionately speak about the role of deacons. Also, Colin interviews the Rev. Geoffrey T. Smith, COO of the Foreign and Domestic Missionary Society - the first Deacon to hold this office. Thanks to our guests and all deacons everywhere!

In this episode of Priest Pulse we focus down on the enneagram along with famed author and podcast host Ian Morgan Cron, author of Chasing Francis and The Road Back to You. Ian tells us about the blessings and shortcomings of the enneagram, a personality profile tool that originates in the Christian and Suffi spiritual traditions. Ian Morgan Cron discusses life through the lens of the enneagram as well as his own journey of faith and being an Episcopal priest. Colin and Ben discuss their enneagram types. We try hard not to insult each other or anyone else. Get to know us and yourself better on this new episode of Priest Pulse.

Do you love Lent Madness? Do you love silly games? Do you want to learn more about Tim, Scott, and Colin Chapman while also finding out which saint they are from a silly Buzzfeed game? If so you've come to the right place. We play a game with the Supreme Executive Committee of Lent Madness on this b-side, and Fr. Ben rambles a lot. He must have Lent on the brain.
