Mark Driscoll isn’t the only one that should be speaking for the once flourishing church community Mars Hill in Seattle, Washington. So let’s start with Jen Smidt, who alongside her husband invested their time, energy, and hearts into former Mars Hill Church, once led by Pastor Mark Driscoll. They actually brought the first Mars Hill baby into the world and maintained significant roles in curriculum writing, counseling, general Mars Hill media and were in high levels of leadership. Jen tells the story of rich community they found and helped establish at Mars Hill, her and her husband’s relationship and interactions with the Driscoll family, and the eventual heartbreak and unhealthy manner of it all ending. Toby, Joey and Matt reflect a bit on how jacked up and hypocritical church structures are, but you don’t want to miss the laughs, tears, and stories told in this episode.

Jason Stellman (host of Drunk Ex-Pastor Podcast) comes on to talk about the church, his newly found Catholicism, and his book “Misfit Faith: Confessions of a Drunk Ex-Pastor.” Tullian Tchividjian texts Matt during the show and the word “secular” is played out. And in The Damn News, we can't save our own environment, maybe we can help Mars with theirs.

Having lost his mother in October, our best friend Devin Shelton adds profound insight to our reflections on last weeks untimely loss of his Matt’s mother. Death really makes you think deeply about life and draws out appreciation for things we normally take for granted. Joey doesn’t know when to stop his stupid jokes and parenting is full of literal shit. And in the Damn News, an old lady literally molds to her chair. And we ask if it is disrespectful, dishonoring or even evil to pay top dollar for the phone that Hitler used to sentence millions of Jews to death?

Joey’s daughter Gwenny stops in for a bit to talk with her dad’s two buddies. Then, Toby and Matt get on their simulation theory kick.

Yeah, that’s right.
