#13: Mad Max: Fury Road

In this episode, Adam and Matt welcome New Testament Professor Eric Barreto to the show in order to discuss George Miller's 2015 film, Mad Max: Fury Road in relationship with the lectionary texts for this coming Sunday, June 5, 2016, Ordinary 10.

Eric Barreto leads our conversation by discussing the ways in which Mad Max: Fury Road calls us to take seriously our own witness, Matt counters with talk about stewarding our resources. All of us marvel at the ease with which this movie lends itself to talk about ministry and preaching. Who knew a two hour post-apocalyptic car chase might provide deep insight into ministry and scripture?

So, as you're thinking about the 10th Sunday in Ordinary time this upcoming week, let us be the best part of your Sunday morning prep! It's time to take hold of the wheel and drive into valhalla. It's time for Technicolor Jesus.
