Season 2 continues as Colin Chapman interviews the famous, the talented Jay Sidebotham. You know him from his cartoons in the Church Publishing calendar but he joins us to talk about his project Renewal Works with Forward Movement. Also in this episode Anna Courie and Josh Hearne come to the roundtable to discuss some religious issues from the election season. We discuss Donald Trump's sexual assault comments in the Access Hollywood video, how forgiveness plays out with political candidates, Hillary Clinton campaign Wikileaks emails, the religious right and whether Evangelicals forfeit their moral high ground supporting Donald Trump, and the entire election madness. Our Roundtable guests also play a game called "Jesus Christ Super Star Wars" and ask Bible or Star Wars geographical trivia. All of this....and honestly not much more....on the newest episode of Priest Pulse.

Welcome back from our summer break: it's the Priest Pulse back-to-school episode!

In the roundtable segment, Dr. Karyn Wiseman and Dr. Elesha Coffman discuss the struggles of seminary institutions and the future of religious education. We talk about Dr. Coffman's article on Religious Dispatches "Are We Entering the End Times for Mainline Seminaries?" We also play a game of "Pokemon or Early Church Heretic."

Colin interviews Dr. Derek Olsen about his book "Inwardly Digest: the Prayer Book as Guide to a Spiritual Life," how he found the Episcopal Church as a Lutheran, being a clergy spouse and lay theologian, and more.

Ben and Colin get the Last Word and discuss cultural shifts that effect the future of parishes and the priesthood.

John Pattison and C. Christopher Smith join Fr. Benjamin Gildas to discuss their book "Slow Church: Cultivating Community in the Patient Way of Jesus." With all of the talk of church attendance decline in the Episcopal Church and mainline denominations, the language of the "slow food movement" offers some helpful corrections and might spark the imagination of churches into thinking about God's abundance. We discuss Asset Based Community Development, God's economy, abundance, scarcity, and much more.

Carla Barnhill from Sparkhouse Family and Nurya Love Parish from Grow Christians join Fr. Benjamin Gildas to discuss discipling and faith formation at home and how congregations can support and equip parents. What resources are there for parents to raise young children? Is it important to take Christian education and family ministry from Sunday morning into the home? At a time when mainline protestant denominations are in decline, these issues of faith building at home are centrally important. Its crucial that we equip parents to spark faith and grow Christians.

Bishop-elect Gutierrez was elected May 16, 2016 by the convention of the Diocese of Pennsylvania as the next diocesan bishop and so will be the newest member of the Episcopal Church House of Bishops.

Kira Schlesinger and Joshua Hearne join our digital roundtable to discuss the new brand of so-called religious liberty and protection laws trending in a dozen or more states. Mississippi just passed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act into law, and Governor Nathan Deal of Georgia just vetoed a similar law. Proponents say these laws exist to protect the already existing religious freedoms granted by the first amendment, but are they necessary or do they reinforce or legalize discrimination? We discuss the philosophical shift in some anabaptist denominations toward church and state relations. Josh gives us a list of ways Baptists in Virginia were punished or killed for their faith just a few centuries ago. In the lightning round, Colin, Kira, and Josh propose new laws for their ministry contexts.
