Rank #4: Episode 12: Incarnation

Podcast cover
Read more
“This world is pregnant with God,” said Blessed Angela of Foligno. This quote comes to us in rich and new ways as we journey through Advent, the days leading up to the Feast of the Nativity - Christmas. Days in which we hear prophets warn, coax, and encourage. Days in which - at least in the northern hemisphere - hours of darkness outweigh hours of light. And yet, we gather on nights like this one because somewhere deep in our bones we’ve been convinced that new possibilities lurk just beneath the surface. Join Dr. Emily Holmes, theologian and professor at Christian Brothers University, as she walks us through what these possibilities meant for medieval Christian women.

"[W]hen Anglicanism is at its best, its liturgy, its poetry, its music and its life can create a world of wonder in which it is very easy to fall in love with God,” wrote Episcopal priest and theologian Urban T. Holmes III. This quote took Theology Live to the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art where its executive director, Dr. Emily Ballew Neff, discusses the intersection of art and theology, specifically how Yinka Shonibare MBE’s four sculptures, "Rage of the Ballet Gods," touches on pagan mythology, globalization, dance, migration, violence and climate change.
