A spectacular mile on anyone’s journey

The Universal Christ was a call to action for this “former” Catholic. I love how Richard makes GOD mine, and not something that belongs to the church - and this isn’t limited to the Catholics. On my journey, I have found many wounded soldiers that have fallen at the hands of their churches. Richard helped me to see that GOD in incarnate in me and you. That God isn’t about me, or you, he is about all of us. What a beautiful message. Without a doubt a lovely part of my journey, I love listening to Richard, Brea, and the “Pauls”. Peace and all things good!

Humility and Love

What I love about this podcast is that everything Rohr and the hosts talk about comes from a place of humility and love. Rohr has a particular worldview that he finds life-giving, and he is looking for ways to tangibly help other people who are willing to try out his lens. He is concerned not to alienate anyone (hence his Catholic orthodoxy), but he also feels the freedom to criticize unhelpful ways of living. He responds to every listener question with admiration and empathy, and he acknowledges that he doesn’t have everything figured out. Encouraging, helpful, and life-giving.

An amazing conversation

Greetings and blessings from Minneapolis. I just finished binge listening to all the existing episodes ending with S2E10. I think I’ll get the next one tomorrow. Even more than the book, and the videos from the Spring Conference, and even Season 1 of these podcasts, I have been blown away by Season 2. Responding to all these questions has opened and broadened the conversation exponentially.

I love listening to the way Richard has to take his well crafted and hard won wisdom and apply to real life situations. I hear his struggle at times and that is helpful also.

I also so appreciate the preparation, participation and commitment of Paul, Paul and Brie. I have say, Richard, that I am getting at least as much from hearing what Paul S and Brie are saying as I am from you in this second season. Brie, if I may address you directly, I so appreciate your deep and heartfelt engagement with this path, the way you keep finding your own words. And then I guess because you have a poet’s sensibility, you craft such compelling images and sentences.

I love the way you all share from your very personal experiences of parenting, marriage, divorce, family tensions, and health challenges. We need more vulnerable teachers!

I’m a faithful reader of the Daily Meditations and am currently facilitating a discussion group of Falling Upward. I think we will be reading The Universal Christ during Lent.

So much gratitude!
