#11: Clueless

In this episode, Adam and Matt discuss Amy Heckerling's 1995 "Clueless," an adaptation of Jane Austen's "Emma," in relationship with the lectionary texts for this coming Sunday, May 15, 2016: Pentecost, Year C.

What does it meant to tell an old story again for the first time? And what does it mean to be the church when all our identities seem up for sale? Matt argues that romantic comedy is a helpful genre for thinking about the first Pentecost morning. Adam thinks about our love of the makeover and how it sits in our theology.

Later on, Matt professes his deep love for minor league baseball, and Adam talks about the curious evocative landscapes of Cy Twombley.

So, as you're thinking about Pentecost this upcoming week, let us be the best part of your Sunday morning prep! It's not a Noxzema commercial -- it's Technicolor Jesus!
