"Dressed for Sacrifice"

To commemorate this time in which we remember the death and resurrection of Jesus, DGL is airing the Easter special "Dressed for Sacrifice" on Saturday. You can listen online or on your local radio station. After you've heard the show, send us a short review expressing your thoughts.
  • Do you think the Richters shopping for dresses is humorous? 
  • Is Brooke and Haley's sacrificial gesture in the department store touching?
  • Do you believe that the Morrisons had more fun serving than they would have participating in the Saturday activities they were so excited about?
  • Jacob says that "the truth of the resurrection should affect us every day." What do you think this means?
We'll probably be recording slightly earlier this week, so please send us your reviews by 9PM Sunday.

  1. This was a REALLY, REALLY good episode… probably one of my favorite specials. It had an awesome message and some great scenes.
    Did I think the Richters shopping for dresses was humorous? Of course! How could it not be funny?
    It was really sweet what Brooke and Haley did for their mom in the department store as they were shopping for dresses. It was definitely something you could expect from the Morrison girls!
    Everything about this show was awesome, so I get to give my trillions and trillions of stars rating… yeah!!
    Keep up your fantasticabulous work on the podcast! :)

  2. Hey guys. I guess since I have been listening to your podcasts I should probably try to put in my own two cents worth.
    I liked this episode too. I thought it had a really good message about sacrificing your time to spread the message of Easter.
    I liked how the Richter and Morrison shopping trips contrasted so well. Tiffany and Monica were so focused on showing off all their wealth. The Morrison girls were so nice to choose less expensive dresses so their mom could spend more on hers.
    I don't know if the Morrisons had more fun working on the sets (they seemed pretty tired at the end), but they knew that the play would spread the true message of Easter to their town and were willing to sacrifice in order to make the play a success.
    That's a very good question. I think that Jacob means that we should live our lives as worthy of the sacrifice that Jesus made and be ready to share the hope of his resurrection to everyone.
    I guess I will give this episode a 5/5 star rating. I agree with Dave about no show being perfect, but I really couldn't think of anything that i didn't like about this episode. I liked the acting and the lesson.
    I really enjoy your podcasts. I missed Steve and Lori last week! Tell them that they have to do double duty this week!
    P.S. Daniel, I don't mean to be critical, but your lines in the opening seem a little forced to me.
    "Hear" you later,
    Anthony

  3. 1. Do you think the Richters shopping for dresses is humorous?
    I actually think that it sounded quite realistic more than humorous. It was slightly funny at times, but it seemed mainly like a typical time shopping .

    2. Is Brooke and Haley's sacrificial gesture in the department store touching?
    It is sort of touching. I would never do that for my mom. Mary Morrison sounded so happy at the end.
    Do you believe that the Morrisons had more fun serving than they would have participating in the Saturday activities they were so excited about?
    I think that the Morrisons are happy doing anything. If they had been doing the other activities they would have had a great time, and they had fun fixing stuff too. Normal people would've been exhausted after working a whole day, and they were all enthusiastic about going back the next morning.
    "That's okay, everyone will still have fun"(Haley, after finding out the egg hunt would be wet)- Quoted to prove Morrison's optimism.
    Jacob says that "the truth of the resurrection should affect us every day." What do you think this means?
    What do you think that means?

  4. I don't know if the Richters shopping for dresses is humorous, but it is typical Richter shopping at what sounded like the most expensive store.
    It sounds touching, but it is what we have come to expect the Morrisons to do.
    As was stated in another review, the Morrisons have fun no matter what they are doing. They are a family that love doing whatever comes their way. I think they love not only being together as a family, but serving others (and God) as well.
    This episode is one of my favorites 5/5
