S1 E6: Pressures of Past and Future

What does it feel like to be caught between the pressures of the past and the demands of the future?

What does it feel like to be on the threshold of change - at significant moments in time? What's the feeling of being caught between the pressures of the past and the demands of the future? Passionist priest Nicholas Postlethwaite and post-evangelical poet David Benjamin Blower discuss the challenges of creating space and authentic conversation in those moments, and they share their own experiences of that place, where change is occurring and relationships are put under pressure.

In this episode David also mentions Martin Newell, another member of the Passionists, who has on multiple occasions faced arrest and prison time for non-violent protest against the arms trade, or environmental causes. You can read more about that here.
