In this episode Andrew sits down with his old friend Kenn Cramer, founder of St. Raphael Counseling, and current Director of Parish Life for St. Paul Mission on the Ft. Belknap Indian Reservation in Montana. Hear how Andrew’s man crush on Kenn turned into a friendship, how Kenn used his head to win his wife, the structure and history of the reservation in America, life and ministry on the reservation, and finally, they open a can of worms about the married priesthood and ministry in the modern world, that they don't have time to wrap up.
“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.
