Season 10: Episode 10 | Social Spirituality

August 26, 2020

There is a tension between personal holiness and social holiness. This last episode is a helpful conclusion to the season and serves to protect us from dangers on the spiritual journey, and sadly, once again Ruth Haley Barton and Steve Weins have to deal with the issue of control. There are some radical demands of a vital relationship with God. Wow.

Season 10: Episode 8 | The Nature and Dynamics of Spiritual Disciplines

August 12, 2020

We jump into the deep weeds in episode 8 and begin with a paradox and Romans 8:10. Note there is a dead body in this episode, and neither Ruth Haley Barton or Steve Weins want to talk about it. In Mulholland's work, he talks about silence, solitude and prayer as postures and not just practices – inviting us into a deeper journey where only God can do the work. Very inviting and very challenging.

Season 10: Episode 7 | The Classic Spiritual Disciplines

Season 10: Episode 7 | The Classic Spiritual Disciplines

August 5, 2020

We begin this episode by redeeming the word “disciplines" by offering up the word “practices” and looking at disciplines through the lens of desire and about opening ourselves up to God, reminding us that we are not in charge of our spiritual journey. Ruth Haley Barton and Steve Weins discuss four practices: prayer, spiritual readings, lectio divina, and liturgy. They sound familiar, but be prepared for some refreshing ideas on how to use them to open yourself up to God.
