After more than a year, we’re finally back to our series on the Ten Commandments! We’re picking up where we left off with the Fifth Commandment, which tells us to “honor thy father and mother”—and a good bit more. We’ve also got a question from Patreon backer Kevin VonFeldt, who asks us about our favorite Kickstarters we’ve backed. We’ve also got some news about a growing gaming group and Jenny’s new cat (courtesy of Feline Café in Ottawa!)

After our Scripture readings, we talk in-depth about the Fifth Commandment: Its text, its meanings (both in Scripture and in cultural usage), and its implications. We also spend some time on the questions which naturally arise when it’s very hard to honor one or both parents. Then we talk about some common story and gaming uses of this topic, and how to put this commandment into practice in the world. Finally, we wrap up with a few special shout-outs to our podcasting and geeky-faith elders whom we’ve learned from: Folks like Derek White, M.J. Young of the Christian Gamers Guild, Dan Repperger, Chad Wattler, and more.

Scripture: Exodus 20:16, Proverbs 6:20-22, 1 Timothy 5:1-4
