In this episode Andrew reflects on his experience on retreat over the weekend, including the role of fear in keeping us from acting on our calling, the inspiration of the courage of others in carrying their cross, and the power of affirmation. Then, he turns to seeng his friend Kenny play with his band The Head and The Heart to a sold out Red Rocks Amphitheater, the ability of longing communicated to point to the object of our longing, the creation of beauty as inevitable path to the True and Good, and a revisiting of the rock show as liturgy for the masses.
“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.
