You may have noticed that I added a new podcast to my website called "The Realistic Mystic."
So what the heck is it?
It's a little bit church, a little bit monastery.
It's a little bit preacher, a little bit monk.
It's a little bit Bible, a little bit journal.
It's a little bit country, a little bit rock 'n roll. (Wait, a minute that's something else. Wrong podcast, sorry.)
In a nutshell...
The Realistic Mystic features short readings from the written works of C.S. Lewis and Thomas Merton. I find both these great men of the faith to be challenging and enlightening. I hope you will, too. C.S. Lewis focuses a lot on knowing the truth and Merton on experiencing it. Both perspectives encourage me to think about and to feel my faith.
I'm starting with Lewis and Merton, but plan to branch out. The two of them have such a depth of material to choose from it seemed like a natural choice. Plus, they are two of my personal favorites and pretty well known. I hope you will enjoy listening to their insights and inspirations as well.
I hope to get The Realistic Mystic podcasts out there regularly, so check back often or follow me on Twitter at HopeNote and don't miss a thing. As always, I welcome your input and suggestions and wish you all the best on your faith journey!
Thanks for listening.
