In this episode Scott and Todd talk about Lent and Ash Wednesday, why Lutherans sometimes freak out at physical practices surrounding Lent such as the imposition of ashes, and how pastors are to introduce good and faithful practices in a new congregation. Oh, and Scott manages to mention Pope John-Paul II, again.
