Mark Buchanan-Episode 229

 

A favorite guest and long-time friend, Mark Buchanan is back on the podcast. He has recently written God Walk: Moving at the Speed of Your Soul. Before we get to the content of his recent release, we spend some time talking about what has transpired in our country and around the world since the murder of George Floyd. Mark Buchanan has been involved in race conversations and racial reconciliation in his home country of Canada for many years. Much of that work has been among First Nations peoples. So I always listen when Mark talks about justice. The entire conversation is filled with relevant material.

Resources mentioned: God Walk, David: Rise, Letter from Birmingham Jail

Kathy Escobar-episode 226

 

Kathy Escobar has had a profound impact on my life. Her book Faith Shift companioned me through some difficult waters. I was delighted to see her come out with a new book in February which probably couldn’t have been worse timing for a book release. But on the other hand, her publisher took all the pressure off because, well, a pandemic! I was grateful for another opportunity to speak with her on Faith Conversations. We spent the bulk of our time talking about Practicing: Changing Yourself to Change the World, her latest book. I love how Kathy challenges us to live our faith through action using some transformational practices. We delve into a number of practices she writes about as well as talk through what Church looks like in the days of Coronavirus. An enlightening conversation that I hope you enjoy as much as I did.

We’ve All Been Exposed, Sarah Bourn

We’ve all been exposed.
Not necessarily to the virus
(maybe…who even knows ).
We’ve all been exposed BY the virus.

Corona is exposing us.
Exposing our weak sides.
Exposing our dark sides.
Exposing what normally lays far beneath the surface of our souls,
hidden by the invisible masks we wear.
Now exposed by the paper masks we can’t hide far enough behind.

Corona is exposing our addiction to…Read More

James Martin S.J.-episode 223

 

Father James Martin is a favorite guest of mine. He is always working on his ‘next’ book but doesn’t have a new release right now. Though he mentions his upcoming book Learning to Pray that you can be looking for. I wanted to catch up with him and talk about what life looks like in his world during the shelter in place days of the Coronavirus crisis. The fun part of this podcast is when James and I found out we grew up in the exact same place, Plymouth Meeting, PA, at exactly the same time! We are the same age. You’ll have to listen and hear the story. So we are forever connected. Who knew?!

After this initial revelation, we go on to talk about life during the pandemic along with what life returning to “normal” might look like. Let’s face it, there will be no normal for a while. We also talk about Father Martin’s d…Read More
