Responding to the last 3 sentences especially - the Joanna Macy interview was a big one for me, along with Sylvia Boorstein, Nikolas Kristof and just to name a few. My spiritual journey is uneven and On Being provides me with the fodder I need to think and grow. On this Christmas eve I am thankful for the program and the community of listeners. This essay of Krista's particularly resonated with me: the obligatory gift-giving and feeling like I am a scrooge for being uncomfortable with it. Krista, you articulated your your issues with the "cutlural" Christmas expectations so well - I agree with you. Keep up the good work. It's a gift!
