In this episode Jo Boyce is in conversation with David Wells, a well-known Catholic speaker, teacher, catechist and author.
David is loved for his ability to bring great insight and humour to his teaching and speaking, while also moving his listeners and readers quite profoundly as he shares his faith and the teachings of the Church with vulnerability and authenticity.
David brings that same authenticity and thoughtfulness to this conversation with Jo Boyce, as they share their experience of “lockdown”, and explore what’s next for our faith in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic and how we find hope even in the darkest times.
- Pros and cons of 24-7 access to faith resources online
- Challenges of engaging people in virtual liturgies and maintaining reverence when wearing pyjamas.
- What social distancing will mean for our personal interaction with one another.
- Rediscovering gratefulness and what we are learning in isolation
- Things that we’ve learned about our communities and the people in them during this time of online interaction.
- Potential for innovation and a more profound faith experience in the future.
