A Day with Bishop Howard and

Fr. Steph Britt

The Bible in Mayberry

The purpose of the program is to explore and discuss the theological themes embedded in the episodes of one of America’s all-time favorite television series The Andy Griffith Show (1960-1968). Andy Griffith was a committed Christian (who won a Grammy in 1997 for gospel album called I Love To Tell The Story). He smuggled the Gospel message into the episodes of his popular television series.


Bring your Bible for some fun. We will watch episodes from the television series and Fr Britt and Bishop Howard will offer Bible verses to explore in dialogue with each episode to ferret out the theology embedded in the episode.
