Dating God Podcast #20 — Advent Special Podcast

Posted in Advent, Dating God Podcast with tags , , , , on November 30, 2012 by Daniel P. Horan, OFM

In this episode of the Dating God Podcast we are joined by Julianne Wallace, a campus minister at St. Bonaventure University and someone who is an advocate for the need to focus our attention on Advent during the liturgical season in a renewed way. She is the author of the article, “A Contemporary Spirituality of Advent and Evening Prayer,” in Pastoral Liturgy. She speaks a little bit about what that article is about and suggests different ways people might celebrate the season of Advent amid the bustle of commercialized holiday blitz. For more on Advent this season and ways to celebrate the liturgical period, check out the article, “Advent Resolutions for a New Church Year,” in The Huffington Post.

Dating God Podcast #19 — Author Chris Haw

Posted in Dating God Podcast with tags , , , on October 26, 2012 by Daniel P. Horan, OFM

This episode of the Dating God Podcast features author Chris Haw, who talks about his new book From Willow Creek to Sacred Heart: Rekindling my Love for Catholicism (Ave Maria Press, 2012). Chris, who identifies himself as a husband, father, carpenter, potter, and theologian, is also the founder of Camden House, an intentional community in Camden, NJ. From Willow Creek to Sacred Heart is both an engaging popular book that traces the milestones of Chris’s own experience of “returning” to the Catholic Church through his experiences of social justice, solidarity, prayer, and liturgy. Co-author with Shane Claiborne of the best-selling book Jesus for President, Chris has an excellent writing style that is sure to keep each reader engaged, while at the same time presenting some rather substantial theologically grounded insights and considerations.

Here’s what my endorsement blurb says in the book, to give you a feel for what I think of this excellent book:

In an accessible and intelligent way, Chris Haw presents us with the colorful fabric of his faith journey woven together with rich resources, inviting readers on a theological and spiritual adventure of action and contemplation. This book is perfect for those struggling to understand how they fit into the Church and world today, especially those young adults seeking to make sense of their faith in challenging times. — Daniel P. Horan, OFM, author of Dating God: Live and Love in the Way of St. Francis

Dating God Podcast #17 — Stephen Martin: Vocation and the ‘Messy Quest’

Posted in Dating God Podcast with tags , , , , , , on September 30, 2012 by Daniel P. Horan, OFM

In this episode of the Dating God Podcast we welcome author Stephen Martin who talks about his book The Messy Quest for Meaning: Five Catholic Practices for Finding your Vocation (Sorin Books, 2012). The book, which has it’s own Franciscan connection as you’ll hear, focuses on the place of vocation in the lives of all Christians and Martin draws on what he calls 5 practices, largely inspired by the Catholic monastic tradition, to help guide today’s Christians on their own “messy quest” to discover their vocations. Additionally, there are two news items including the release of Dan Horan’s latest book, Francis of Assisi and the Future of Faith (Tau Publishing, 2012), and a public lecture this week at Hilbert College in Buffalo, NY, titled, “How to ‘Prophet’ from the Franciscan Tradition: Solidarity and Christian Living in the 21st Century.”
