A100 Regional Conference Reality with Evan Willis
August 12, 2019
WE MADE IT TO 100! We thought about doing something different for this episode, but we wanted to give you the content that brought us here and that you listen for. We've brought on Evan Willis, a regional conference pastor in Charlotte, NC, to school us on the history of regional conferences and to discuss the value of them in 2019 Adventism as well as historical Adventism. Absurdity is just getting started, so thank you for being on the ride with us!

We talk about a cohabitation motion from the 2015 General Conference Session and we try to figure out what the proper balance point is.

A96 Can Christianity Peacefully Coexist? with Stephen Hall
July 15, 2019
This is the last week of our Wakonda Recordings! Tony came to visit for the weekend, so he, Stephen, and I sat down for a conversation on Christianity's historical impact on the world around it. Christianity, throughout history, has seemed like it's never been satisfied with even being the majority faith tradition, but that it seems it has actively tried to subjugate those even in minority faith traditions or alternative lifestyles.
