Saying "I'm sorry" is many things. Often it's by rote, sometimes it is heartfelt and all too often it is completely meaningless and even sinister. This week we sat down to figure out just where being sorry fits in the world of failure, confession and forgiveness. Grab a cup of coffee or tea and join us to see if you agree with our take on being sorry.

Podcast Notes:

The podcast Dawn references is called "It's Been a Minute" with Sam Sanders. The specific episode is the Year End Round Up.

Nativity Sets

We have covered the Nativity Story in a past podcast so this week we take a look at the sets themselves. We have St. Francis to thank for them and we discuss who is represented and how they have changed over the years. Grab a cup of coffee or tea to find out more.

Producer's Note:

It's "Away in a Manger" and not "O Little Town of Bethlehem" that plays on my Little People set.

Hipster Nativity Set

And yes, you can buy a pregnant Mary for your Nativity set!

Martin Luther came up with a seal called the Luther Rose that is being used most recently as part of the logo for the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Curious why and what it means? Grab a cup of coffee or tea and join us to learn more.

Luther's letter

And no, I didn't find any information about Martin Luther using the rose to seal or sign papers. If anyone else finds out more, let us know!
