How do we flourish with an embodied faith in an age of disenchantment, doubt, anxiety, and conflict?
This is one the key questions at the heart of my recent interview with Zach Elliott about my new book Flourishing on the Edge of Faith. If you’ve been wondering why I wrote this book and what it’s really about, this is a great place to start. Lily loved it 🙂
Zach always makes me feel so at home on “Life and Beauty: The Podcast” and asks such refreshingly honest, insightful questions. Together we explore doubt, the embodied nature of Jesus’s prayer, the epidemic of othering in society today, and how praying with Jesus is a powerful, healing practice for flourishing in the midst of anxiety, addictions to control, and polarization.
I thoroughly enjoyed this conversation, and I hope you’ll listen in. Look for LAB: The Podcast Episode 125 wherever you listen to podcasts, including on Apple Podcasts and Spotify Podcasts. Zach, Cammie, and Reilly, thanks again for your amazing hospitality!
Next week, I’ll share a new excerpt from Flourishing focused on Jesus’s spiritual practice of radical reverence. Until then, I invite you to begin every day in 2023 by praying with Jesus and practicing flourishing:
Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread
And forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.
Don’t lead us into temptation but deliver us from evil.
Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory – forever.
May you flourish,
