In today’s episode, Rob sits down with his friend, and the third of his sponsees, Mike Lindstrom, and asks him, “How did you get here?”
● The quote Rob couldn’t figure out was, “God is like a father: easy to please, but hard to satisfy.” It’s attributed to lots of different people. Rob thinks he heard it from Peter Kreeft, but the Internet seems to think it’s from C.S. Lewis or George MacDonald. The Internet. Amirite?

The original Heavy D: Nuttin' but Love: “Time's too hard to be faking like I'm dating on some steak and...wining and dining, I ain't choking on no chicken…”
Chesterton on miracles (from Orthodoxy, “Authority and the Adventurer”):
But my belief that miracles have happened in human history is not a mystical belief at all; I believe in them upon human evidences as I do in the discovery of America. Upon this point there is a simple logical fact that only requires to be stated and cleared up. Somehow or other an extraordinary idea has arisen that the disbelievers in miracles consider them coldly and fairly, while believers in miracles accept them only in connection with some dogma. The fact is quite the other way. The believers in miracles accept them (rightly or wrongly) because they have evidence for them. The disbelievers in miracles deny them (rightly or wrongly) because they have a doctrine against them.
Jake attributed a quotation to C.S. Lewis. The Internet disagrees with him:
"The church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints." - generally attributed to Abigail Van Buren. Dear Abby was a pen name, so there’s still a chance he was right…

How Did You Get Here?
Guest: Yancy Evans
Description: Rob sits down with Yancy Evans for a conversation. Yancy is a fellow parishioner with Rob at St. Thomas the Apostle Parish in Phoenix, AZ.
