New Happy Rant: Advent vs. Lent, Guilty Pleasures, and a Secret Sports Addiction

You can count on us to get your week started off right. Here is episode 66 of the Happy Rant to offer you a little levity on your last week of work before Christmas. Hang in there! In this episode we rant about the following:

  • Ronnie may not be a “sports fan” but he does have one secret sports love
  • Why do evangelical Christians feel so comfortable with Advent and celebrate it so much but kind of weird out about Lent?
  • What’s the deal with guilty pleasures? Why should anyone feel guilty about enjoying music or movies just because someone in skinny jeans says so?
  • A little bonus chat about who would win the Heisman. Did Ted and Barnabas guess correctly?

Our newest Sponsor, Missional Wear, offers some pretty sweet Calvinist swag for that Spurgeon/Calvin/Edwards Fanboy tor girl in your life. Missional Wear creates awesome reformed theology t-shirts and apparel. They also make fun stuff like John Calvin coffee mugs, Martin Luther pint glasses, Charles Spurgeon stickers, The Resolutions of Jonathan Edwards posters, and so much more!
