Episode 57: Love and Basketball

February 20, 2019
Omar Epps and Sanaa Lathan in Love and Basketball


On the heels of NBA All-Star weekend and in anticipation of March Madness, this week Matt and Adam sit down with Aisha Brooks Lytle to talk about Love and Basketball. In the first segment, Justification by Faith, the group discusses what Love and Basketball has to do with life, ministry, and the world. In the second segment, Preaching to the Choir, the trio discusses how Love and Basketball intersects with the lectionary passages for the Seventh Sunday after the Epiphany, Year C. Specifically, they spend most of their attention on the story of Joseph and the role of family systems in the formation of identity. Finally, as postludes, Matt sees the groundhog and Adam learns to love his city. Come for the good conversation, stay for Adam’s list of best basketball movies. Friends, it’s time for Technicolor Jesus.
