Episode 12 (recorded 30 August 2020).  Bishop Jack Lumanog examines the curious case of Kyle Rittenhouse -- a 17 year old Illinois boy who killed two and shot a third person in Kenosha, Wisconsin is peacefully taken into custody.  However, the flashpoint for the unrest that brought Rittenhouse from Illinois to Kenosha, Wisconsin was Jacob Blake, an unarmed Black man, being shot by police 7-8 times in the back while trying to break up a fight between two women outside a home.  At issue is the disproportionate violence against Black people by police officers which has come to the fore this year during protests against systemic racism nationwide.    --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/bishoplumanog/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/bishoplumanog/support
Episode 11 (recorded 19 July 2020).  You know you're having a bad day when you are getting fact checked by Fox News.  Bishop Jack Lumanog breaks down President Trump's off the rails interview with Chris Wallace from Fox News and even Fox gets called "fake news" by Trump.  And even with the President's insistence that things are going great - even though they are so clearly not - with his lack of leadership or even grasp of basic facts on Coronavirus, Chris Wallace calls out President Trump for claiming "good" mortality numbers and that Vice President Joe Biden wants to "defund" and "abolish" the police.  Now when faced with this lack of moral leadership, will Evangelicals be bothered to care about President Trump's incompetence and/or malevolence that is costing American lives in this pandemic?   --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/bishoplumanog/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/bishoplumanog/support
Episode 10 (recorded 11 July 2020). President Trump's remarks on July 4th in Washington, D.C. in his "Salute to America," he seems more preoccupied with preserving the Confederacy than defeating Coronavirus (listen to Episode 9: "Time for some new statues and monuments!" for a discussion of his July 3rd speech at Mount Rushmore).  After a disjointed speech that was supposed to commemorate our Independence Day, President Trump equated Iwo Jima with the Confederate "heroes" of the Civil War and his commitment to preserve this "legacy of heroes."   Meanwhile, following President Trump's two back to back speeches on Confederate statues and monuments, U.S. Army General Mark Milley, Chairmain of the Joint Chiefs of Staff testified before the House Armed Services Committee and called the Civil War "an act of treason."  General Milley also regretted being part of President Trump's 5 minute photo op in front of St. John's Episcopal Church in early June (listen to Episode 7: "Are Bibles props, churches circus tents and Evangelicals just pawns for President Trump?" for a fuller discussion about that incident).   Bishop Lumanog also discussed how the President's preoccupation with Confederate statues and monuments is costing us the war on Coronavirus and how Jim Bakker and "Archbishop" Mark Grenon are getting into hot water with authorities for their miracle cures for COVID-19 aimed at people of faith. Finally, Bishop Lumanog leaves us with hope from the Word of God in how we have not been left powerless or comfortless in this age of "alternative facts" and "fake news" with Good News from the Bible itself (John 18:33-38, Exodus 20:16, Ephesians 4:11-16, Ephesians 5:15-16 and II Timothy 3:1-5).   --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/bishoplumanog/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/bishoplumanog/support
Episode 9 (recorded 4 July 2020).  Following President Trump's speech at Mount Rushmore on 3 July 2020, Bishop Jack Lumanog responds to the President's tone deaf rhetoric and his odd commitment to preserving "our" heroes, "our" values, "our" most sacred memorials.  The Bishop discusses the history of Stone Mountain (outside of Atlanta) and proposes taking down every Confederate statue and monument and offers his suggestions for their replacements: General and 18th President Ulysses S. Grant, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, The Greensboro Four, The Little Rock 9 (especially depicting 15 year old Elizabeth Eckford), Rosa Parks, The Freedom Riders (especially Congressman John Lewis).  Happy Independence Day, from Pod Bless Us with Bishop Jack Lumanog! --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/bishoplumanog/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/bishoplumanog/support
Episode 8 (recorded 26 June 2020).  --  Bishop Jack Lumanog sits down for his first ever interview for Pod Bless Us!  8 days before today's recording, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled 5-4 blocking the Trump administration from going ahead with its plan, announced in 2017, to end a program called DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals).  For an Evangelical point of view following this recent Supreme Court decision and an in-depth discussion on how to think biblically about immigrants and refugees, Bishop Jack talks with Matthew Soerens, the US Director of Church Mobilization for World Relief and the National Coordinator for the Evangelical Immigration Table, a coalition that advocates for immigration reforms consistent with biblical values.  Find out more at www.evangelicalimmigrationtable.com. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/bishoplumanog/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/bishoplumanog/support
Episode 7 (recorded 24 June 2020).  --  Are Bibles props, churches as circus tents and Evangelicals just pawns to President Trump?  It would certainly seem so.  "Kung Flu!" shouted President Donald Trump on 23 June 2020 at a rally held at Dream City Church in Phoenix, Arizona.  The President made racist jokes and the crowd went wild inside a Phoenix megachurch.  Bishop Jack Lumanog also takes us back to 1 June 2020 where peaceful protestors from Lafayette Square were met with militaristic tactics so that the President could have his 5 minute photo op in front of St. John's Episcopal Church on 1 June 2020.   --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/bishoplumanog/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/bishoplumanog/support

Episode 5 (recorded 17 June 2020).  --  Bishop Jack Lumanog talks about Louie Giglio on "white blessing," Lecrae, the difference between Black Lives Matter and All Lives Matter. And how caucasian leaders can most importantly *listen* and then engage in race relations discussions.  And if you try and fail, just apologize like Louie Giglio did. Repent.

Episode 3 (recorded 7 June 2020). --  There is so much "moral outrage" that the only way to deal with this biblically is "more outreach."  --  Bishop Jack Lumanog.   Trinity Sunday gives us the Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-20) and Bishop Jack Lumanog also reminds us about the Great Commandment (Mark 12:30-31).  "GC squared" can help us bridge the divide between the races and other differences that face us within and without the Church.  Bishop Lumanog shares his experiences of "white-splaining" which happened to him as a person of color being told how to feel as a minority pastor.   The Great Commission = GO The Great Commandment = LOVE --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/bishoplumanog/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/bishoplumanog/support
Episode 2 (recorded 13 June 2020). --  Even though the Church is in the season of Pentecost, celebrating the Holy Spirit breathing on the Church for mission, Bishop Jack Lumanog shares that he is having trouble breathing this promised power of God.  Especially in light of yet another unarmed black person killed and on video for the world to see.  What is the Church to do?  How are we to respond?  Bishop Jack discusses the most recent deaths of unarmed black civilians: Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and George Floyd.  And here is the Bishop's prayer:  "Come, Holy Spirit, breathe new life into me and into your Church. Help us to be a prophetic voice in this country once again.
