In honor of the convergence of Ash Wednesday and Valentine's day this week, we discuss romantic love, as well as love of God. We are church people, after all. For the lectionary-based Bible study part of the podcast, we talk about Jesus's temptation in the wilderness. Finally, Saint Lucy and John the Baptist go head to head (pun intended, given that they both experienced significant head trauma) in the Lent Madness match-up of the week. Karl Stevens, Laurie Clark, and Lucy Waechter-Webb contribute.
