Café Scholé, Episode 6 – Christ, the Teacher
Join Christopher Perrin as he contemplates a small (but essential) work by Clement of Alexandria. It’s called Christ the Teacher or Christ the Pedagogue (available on the web here: https://www.newadvent.org/fathers/02091.htm) and it’s remarkably helpful for contemporary, restful teaching.
Close Reads – The End of the Affair: Part One
And so it was time to begin a new book . . . Join David, Tim, and Heidi as they dive into the world of Graham Green’s twentieth classic, The End of the Affair. They chat about the likability of the narrator, the mystery of Sarah Miles, the technical skill of the author, and the fascination of those first few lines. And much more, of course.
Proverbial, Episode 26 – The Real You
This week’s (very famous) proverb comes from William Shakespeare and his play, As You Like It. It says, “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.” Join Joshua Gibbs as he contemplates what this proverb has to say to modern men and women.
