Hunger for Wholeness Podcast Launches!

Story matters. Our lives are shaped around immersive, powerful stories that thrive at the heart of our religious traditions, scientific inquiries, and cultural landscapes. All stories – big and small – point toward our fundamental hunger for wholeness, understanding, and love.

Behind all these stories is a unity of love. Not a unity that is closed and exclusive, but a union that differentiates. Not a love that is simply romantic, but a love that connects us across our differences and helps us discover a way of flourishing together at a global scale.

As Bertrand Russell and Albert Einstein claimed, science without religion is lame and religion without science is blind. This new podcast will launch a series called “Hunger for Wholeness” that will hear from speakers in interdisciplinary fields of science and religion who are finding answers for how to live wholistic lives. We want to be part of creating a future that will birth a way of life where religion and science do not compete, but support and complement one another.

We are excited to launch this new podcast. Please join us on the this journey of discovery – subscribe to the show on Spotify or become a member of our Hunger for Wholeness Patreon community and support the show!

    Fascinating conversation with Catherine Keller. My main thought is in the need to abolish the “god” word. It’s legacy is too wrought with Patriarchal lies and visions of white men hovering in the sky to ever be reformed. It’s entirely too small and off putting to many scientists and thinking people and every time it’s uttered I can’t help but cring. “Gaia” or simply “life-force” are worthy substitutes or revival/emergence of animistic polytheism.
