The Counter Position Episode 253- Heart Burn, 6 Segments, and Musing on Nature, Liturgy, Contingency, and Gratitude
In this episode, after a copious amount of being chatty about his weirdly having heart burn, the big snow that didn’t last, brussel sprouts as a love language, and his epic quest to find a cheap flight giving him six segments so he can achieve United Silver Status, Andrew shifts gears into one of the more musing and speculative couple of segments in a while, covering our contingency, relationship to nature, the ramifications for liturgy and the spiritual life, and ultimately the nature of humility, gratitude, and…..thanksgiving.
“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.
