    Thank you all for this detailed discussion. I wouldn’t expect that from any other podcast I am aware of and I should think that the precise meaning of something so ubiquitous is rather important.

    Nice program and the three voices are such I only wish it could be a bit longer. Rex adds so much with his honest questions and Tom’s linguistic insights along with The Rev Deacon’s traditional references made for a delightful show. I want to thank each of you for this worthwhile approach of one or two words at a time.

    On the subject of the saying of sacred names, I remember years ago the older people tending to say “the lord” or “the savior”, but I wonder to what extent popular music had to do with the diminishing of that. “Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so” etc. Many of the gospel and string band songs too.

    Life can be harsh and some times belief can be harsher. I envy those who had that strong faith and try to keep it simple.
