In this first show of season 3, Rev. Beverly Gibson and Johnny Gwin discuss the lessons from the Oct.1st readings and sermon that center on questioning authority, spiritual leadership, God’s economy of grace, and claiming the infinite gifts that God bestows upon us all. And NO, one of those divine gifts (while considered an exceptional consumer product) does not include the Yeti Cooler that Rev. Gibson read about in a recent New York Times article. This NYT article focuses on the cult-like hype and love of the almighty Yeti Brand. Quoted is a Ms. Tannehill (Augusta, Ga.) describing this $300 product as practically a divine gift, “God dropped the Yeti down: ‘Here you go, South, it’s hot, I see you’re struggling.” Plus, the reporter Steven Kurutz retells the story of this summer’s Great Yeti Heist of the Springhill Ace Hardware Store.
