In this episode, after looking back over his trip to Cincinnati, recounting the food and coffee high points, and musing on his gratitude to his friends for helping solidify the reality and charism of Calix, Andrew explores the idea of doing big things for God as normal and real human beings, with all the weirdness that implies, who let God have their way with them vs. plaster saints who are of a different order than us humans.
“The Counter Position” is a new show by Andrew Whaley, founder of the apostolate Calix. Andrew brings his unique take on things from over 20 years of studying philosophy, theology, art, business, and design while processing those ideas daily over the bar in his coffeehouses with people of all walks of life, most of them being the unchurched/dechurched. Feverishly interested in everything, Andrew covers a wide array of topics, spiritual and otherwise, with his hallmark brand of edgy self-deprecating humor, intellectual speculation, and deep wonder. Interviews range from major Catholic figures and intellectuals to interesting characters with good story or an insight to bring. So, if you’re interested in a new form of Catholic radio, buckle up and tune in.
