#019: Catholic Worker Farm Spirituality w/ Dr. Larry Chapp Eden Revisited

    • Christianity

Join Nick and Austin as they sit down with Dr. Larry Chapp to discuss his transition from academia to life on a Catholic Worker Farm. He explores the theology of Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin, as well as their ideas on personalism, distributism, and what it means to live a "radical" Christian life. We also get some practical tips on why sheep are better than goats and how one can responsibly plan to start their own farm.
Dr. Larry Chapp is a retired professor of theology and taught for twenty years at DeSales University near Allentown, Pennsylvania. He now operates the Dorothy Day Catholic Worker Farm in Harveys Lake, Pennsylvania with his wife, Carmina.  He also runs the popular blog Gaudium et Spes 22.
