I don't get all the broo-ha-ha. I am glad the above exchange took place but I am still left to wonder why those with Richard Mouw's ideas can not be respected without feeling the need to be accepted by any of your listeners.I don't agree with all he said but then I don't agree with all that is spoken here in general.
For example I thoroughly enjoy listening to the Dali Llama and other articulate and well grounded believers in Buddhism. But that doesn't mean I am a Buddhist. I am a Christian and I have complete trust in Christ. I am also a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints but my faith does not require me to swallow Glen Beck's particular bent!
But that is precisely what I love about Being. This well thought out program amazes me as each week a different or collateral view is examined. It challenges me to think and reach down into the deep wells of my own faith. This is such a rewarding experience!! I find my understanding about being and my faith richly rewarded and magnified. And, yes, I am one of those who must listen to the uncut version of almost each show. I find that often the nuances of the topic of the day are often not caught without listening to the uncut version.
Krista Tippett is at once erudite and humble that she makes what she does sound easy which from my own experience it is all but easy!. Also from listening to the uncut version I have come to appreciate the equally superb group of people who are her foundation. Thank you all for the gift you bring each week into my home!!
