This week, the guys revisit Rhythms, Resets, and Rituals to talk about how they help their kids connect with God.  How do we intentionally structure our lives so that God is an integral part of the way our kids grow up?

Recurring Segment:

Kids TV Show: Paw Patrol

Manderson- This is Justus’ favorite Show. I inevitably have to watch this show every day. Aka I sit next to him and browse social media. But TBH what the heck. How do you leave all public works and emergency care to a pack of domesticated dogs and a kid with special abilities? Who is overseeing them? Why entrust your city to a lady who has high anxiety and a pet chicken she hides in her purse?

Recently, in this new season, they randomly break out into song. Can you really say a kids tv show has jumped the shark or has it already by premise alone?

Stout - I want to know how the mayor keeps getting elected.  She’s so incompetent!  She replaced all the town’s emergency services with a kid and six dogs!  Her vice mayor is a chicken!  I would love to see attack the ads around political season for who ever runs against her.  (I might try and produce an attack ad on my own if I have the time.)

Bevil - Saves a Mer Pup...

Parenting Win Segment

Manderson - (I wasn’t there for this but it's still a parent pastor win) Justus getting on stage at the Camp Wanake Egg Hunt. He got the empty egg and didn’t freak out. But understood that the egg was empty because the tomb was empty. (Aha Moment)

Stout - Ruthie beginning to understand the move and talking about making new friends

Bevil - Sophie Convo @ My Primary Spiritual Experiences
