Hi Jason,

Just watched episode 30. Maybe next time you have Alma Allred on you could discuss God the Father having a body. I have read most of the Bible and have never found anything about God having a body.
Also, I love the show entrance song. What is the name of the song?

Thank you for your interest in our program! We will definitely consider discussing the LDS conception of their god having a body. You are very right in your assertion that the Bible never teaches anything about God having a body (quite the contrary!).

The song that plays during the show intro is a rendition of psalm 80 set to the Welsh tune "Bryn Calfaria". The Book of Psalms was almost exclusively sung in churches up until the last few hundred years when popular hymns took over. I'm glad that you can appreciate the depth and beauty of the psalms.

If you are interested in acquiring a copy for yourself, the particular CD this came off of is called "Psalms of the Trinity Psalter - Volume 1" by the Scottish Festival Singers. I'm sure you can find it on amazon.com. Also, www.crownandcovenant.com has many resources, such as psalters (which are like hymnals of the book of psalms set to music for public worship; our congregation uses the "Book of Psalms for Singing" which has the version of psalm 80 that you like) as well as music CD's.

Again, thanks for watching!
