Episode #27: The Luminous Part of You

Episode #27: The Luminous Part of You

In this week's podcast Karl and Laurie talk about George Saunders's commencement speech, delivered at Syracuse, in which he says: "What I regret most in my life are failures of kindness.  Those moments when another human being was there, in front of me, suffering, and I responded...sensibly.  Reservedly.  Mildly."  How well can Saunders's simple and kind spirituality speak to a secular world?  And why is it that many church-goers fail in kindness so routinely?  Is there a way to reclaim a spirituality of kindness within the church?  Join us as we discuss these weighty matters, and Hebrews 11:29-12:2.
