Common Era: The Silk Road of Spiritualities (Episode 3)

Jul 22 2021, 11:34 AM

There seems to be less suspicion between denominations, between religions, even between faith groups and the secular. Instead there are deep desires to learn from each other’s wisdom. What’s caused this, and where are we headed? Post-evangelical poet David Benjamin Blower and Passionist Catholic priest Nicholas Postlethwaite talk about their shared influences, the search for belonging or ‘home’, and where this new silk road of spiritualities is taking us.

Common Era: Spirituality in an Age of Change is a new short-run podcast series from Passionists. Find out more at commonerapodcast.com.
