I have been working on a new venture! A podcast about spirituality and resilience, through the lens of the Biblical Psalms.
The question I’m exploring is: how do the Psalms, and music, and other spiritual resources such as these, help us through difficult times – through times of personal or collective trauma?
How do the psalms lift our spirits?
I’m inviting friends and respected teachers to speak with me on the connections between spirituality and resilience. My guests will be from a variety of backgrounds – theologians, social workers, hymnwriters, musicians, spiritual directors, clergy, academics, mental health practitioners, and anyone interested in the intersection of spirituality and the lived experience.
Through personal story, field research, and theological reflection, we will delve into the psalms and how they intersect with people lives and areas of expertise.
For me, this is pure joy. When I record my conversations, I’m in a beautiful spot overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and Rathlin Island – and I get to connect with people near and far to talk about things we’re passionate about.
The first few episodes will be released soon, and I hope you will join us on the journey!
