October 21, 2014 – Faith & Culture: The Popular “New” Pope Francis
Season 6, Episode 17
He was elected just a year-and-a-half ago and continues a meteoric rise in popularity. On this episode of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we discuss faith and Pope Francis. He was born Jorge Mario Bergoglio in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He worked briefly as a chemical technician and even did a short stint as a nightclub bouncer before beginning his seminary studies. Pope Francis loves soccer, films in the style of neo-realism, tango dancing, and the traditional music of Argentina and Uruguay known as the milonga – often described as a fast and happy music that’s great for dancing. Our very special guest for this program is Bishop John Noonan. He’s the fifth Bishop of Orlando. A native of Limerick, Ireland, he immigrated to the United States as a young man. He’ll talk with us about his new boss in Rome, and much more. Pope Francis and Bishop Noonan! Coming up on the next installment of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys. Join the conversation on Tuesday at 6:30 PM on 90.7 WMFE FM, Orlando (click here).

The Journey Continues
We’ve been doing it together for almost 15 years: talking and listening with each other as friends! A Reform Rabbi, a Suni Imam, and a Congregational (UCC) Minister. It has been a journey of ever deepening friendship and respect. When you are friends first, then even when you disagree, you’re still friends. It’s a model of interfaith relationship we believe is essential for people of faith, and those who claim no faith community at all.
“Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys” airs weekly on Tuesday at 6:30 PM (Eastern Time) on 90.7 WMFE Orlando.
