Is monasticism an outdated concept or can its principles still be of value in today's fast-paced world? We had a riveting discussion about monasticism and contemplative Christianity with our esteemed guests, Drs. Michael Papazian (philosophy), Larry Marvin (history), and Marshall Jenkins (counseling). Together, we explored various features of monastic lifestyles and the relevance of monasticism in the 21st century.
After playing "Monk or Bunk?", our conversation delved into Michael Papazian's experiences of teaching a course on monasticism and Christian spirituality at Berry College, where students engage in contemplative practices such as Lectio Divina. We discussed the potential benefits of incorporating these principles into our modern lives. Join us for this enlightening and thought-provoking conversation on monasticism and contemplative Christianity.
NEW FEATURE: Our guests often continue the conversation with fascinating additional insights after the formal recording is over. Church Potluck now plans to record those additional conversations and include them as unedited "leftovers" at the end of the podcast (thus the longer episode length). Shout-out to Christy Snider for the "Leftovers" moniker!
