We are sailing over a great and wide sea, full of many monsters and rocks and storms. It is necessary then if we would sail with ease and without danger to stretch the sails, that is, to exercise our determination: for this is sufficient for us.
- Saint John Chrysostom

Not to Condemn the World, But to Save It

This is a podcast by Fr Andrew Stephen Damick, where he conducts in-depth interviews to tell stories of the working of the gospel of Jesus Christ in the whole creation - in culture, in personal, community and public life. In today’s world what we need most is neither polemic nor compromise, but engagement.

This particular podcast recommendation is a two-parter: an interview with Rod Dreher, the author of The Benedict Option (which we are currently reading for our Book Study) and Live Not By Lies.
Part one is here and part two is here.
