In this episode we talk about Jesus with Franciscan friar, founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation and author of The Universal Christ, Richard Rohr.
Fr. Richard believes Jesus is the personification of God’s constant, unfolding work in the world. Consequently, he sees faith as being less about proving Jesus was God, and more about learning to recognise the Creator’s presence all around us and in everyone we meet.
So we ask Fr. Richard how his faith has been reshaped by this discovery, what the implications of the loss of this worldview have been for the Church and the world, where the atonement fits in, whether there’s still any need for religion, and many more questions.
As you’d expect from Fr. Richard, his answers are thought-provoking and full of hope.
