What Have We Been Reading (11:40)

PastorDoostyn discusses the book “41 Will Come” by Chuck E. Tate that unpacks the different times in the Bible we the number 40/41 is mentioned. He also discusses John 15, specially the well-known “I am the vine” passage. Logan discusses reading through 2 Thessalonians, specifically a passage in chapter 3 that stood out during his reading.

Topic (18:20)

DOOM is one of the most influential series in gaming. But it’s also one with it’s own set of controversy. The guys sit down to give an overview of the overarching story throughout the games, it’s themes, and ask questions about our engagement with the games. If you have never played a game in the series, this is an episode that would be the perfect primer for the upcoming DOOM Eternal.
