Rev. Derek “The GeekPreacher” White joins us once again, and this time it’s even more special than usual. This episode is a sort of test case for a new thing we might be doing with Derek more regularly—having Derek on to talk about specific theological topics from a geek perspective! First, though we’ve got a Patreon question to answer from Doug Hagler, who asks us what our individual D&D alignments are, and some Scripture we’ve picked out for the topic.
Then we let Derek take the lead as we discuss the unlikely sorts of heroes we see in both Scripture and in pop culture, from Moses and David to Frodo and Hawkeye. Accidental heroes, broken heroes, screwed-up heroes—we’ve got them all, and we’re happy to talk about them!
Also mentioned in this episode: Unsong; the Critical Core Kickstarter from Game to Grow; and STG 115, “RPGs in Social Skills Therapy (with Adam Davis and Adam Johns)”.
Scripture: Exodus 4:10-17, Isaiah 6:5-8, 1 Corinthians 15:2-11
