Common Era: Old Decline and New Growth (S1 Episode 2)
Is there a bigger story to be found behind the sense of decline felt by some faith traditions? What positive visions of the future could we find in place of those anxieties? Post-evangelical poet David Benjamin Blower and Passionist Catholic priest Nicholas Postlethwaite talk about the narratives of decline in the traditions they grew up with, the idea of giving away your ‘treasures’ without asking for membership, and how to take up the roles of undertaker and midwife: not only allowing change to happen, but taking part in ushering it in to the world.
