Episode 59: 2 Chronicles

Jordan and Luci finally finishing discussing and rediscussing everything that when wrong in Judah and Israel.

Show notes:

  • The Israelites “going up” to rebuild the Temple is so hopeful, like the end of The Sound of Music
  • War: What is it good for?
  • Heaven probably doesn’t look like it does in the Family Circus
  • “Hear that, Ed? Bears. Now you’re putting the whole station in jeopardy.”
  • The kings might have engaged in incest marriage, like the Targaryens
  • “They tried to bury us, but they forgot we were seeds” has an interesting history, moving from a Greek poet to Mexican counterculture.
  • Jordan mentions Thomas Merton’s famous prayer:
    • “My Lord God,
      I have no idea where I am going.
      I do not see the road ahead of me.
      I cannot know for certain where it will end.
      nor do I really know myself,
      and the fact that I think I am following your will
      does not mean that I am actually doing so.
      But I believe that the desire to please you
      does in fact please you.
      And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing.
      I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire.
      And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right road,
      though I may know nothing about it.
      Therefore will I trust you always though
      I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death.
      I will not fear, for you are ever with me,
      and you will never leave me to face my perils alone.”
