Modern Cloister Anniversary

Modern Cloister podcast has turned one this past weekend. You can listen to our review of what we’ve taken a away from a year of podcasting, and our plans for the future. We will be back on an every other Sunday schedule for a while. Next up is a Mars Hill reaction pod, then a six part series on the five solas. Plenty of other ideas in the works, if life will let us get to them.

For MMT, I will hopefully be back in with book reviews soon, along with a few other post topic. I’ve started a new job in my real life, and that is taking quite a bit of bandwidth.

Hope you enjoy the podcast and the episode below, feedback and comments are always welcome. Listen below, find us on YouTube and wherever podcasts are found, or listen on our home page at Modern Cloister.

Interview with Todd Hains and Natasha Kennedy Modern Cloister

In this episode, we sit down with Todd Hains, editor, and Natasha Kennedy, illustrator, who together have shaped the creation and launch of a new children's books series called "FatCat" that aims to make the practice of catechism both accessible and engaging for children and families alike. There are three books in the series so far (Apostles' Creed, Lord's Prayer, and King of Christmas) with more to come in 2023.  About FatCat Books  How can anyone, no matter how young or old, grasp the message of the Bible? The church’s answer has always been the catechism. Maybe “catechism” sounds like a scary word. But it shouldn’t! The catechism teaches us what the Bible teaches us: our faith. The church’s catechism is the central texts of faith—the Apostles’ Creed, the Ten Commandments, and the Lord’s Prayer. The catechism is “fat.” It’s bursting at the seams with meaning, challenge, and comfort. It’s concise, but it’s also deep. Most importantly, it should be familiar. FatCat is a way of making the catechism approachable. And so this book has an actual fat cat hidden throughout. Search for him with your child as you enjoy this book together, and hide the words of the catechism in your heart. Learn more at the Lexham Press website.
