We welcome guest host Mike from Innroads Ministries and Game Store Prophets! Mike introduces our listeners to Innroads, and we talk a bit about "geek ministries" before settling in with our scripture and our topic: Our own origin stories. This episode ended up being a sequence of fairly personal discussions of our roads to both gaming and faith -- about as close to testimony as we can probably get. A lot of things we haven't mentioned before came out in this episode, and we hope you enjoy it!

Scripture: Genesis 1:1-2, John 1:1-5, Matthew 13:3-9

In this episode, Grant and Peter introduce our syndication partnership with Innroads Ministries, and thank everyone who donated to The Bodhana Group through our fundraiser (and everyone else who participated in the 2013 RPG Podcasters Fundraiser Drive.) Then we start off a discussion of forgiveness with a long C. S. Lewis reading, explaining just how difficult—and how important—forgiveness is. We go over its central place in Christian theology; discuss forgiveness as a gaming plot device; and wrap up with commentary on forgiveness at the gaming table.

Scripture: Jonah 3:10-4:11Matthew 22:34-40John 3:16Luke 15:20-24
