Harry Potter and the Sacred Text

It’s the English class you didn't know you missed and the meaningful conversations you didn't know you craved. Join Vanessa Zoltan and Matt Potts as they bring thought, reflection and laughter to Harry Potter; not just as novels, but as instructive and inspirational texts that will teach us about our own lives. Relive the magic chapter by chapter as they explore themes such as commitment, revenge and forgiveness. This podcast creates time in your week to think about life’s big questions. Because reading fiction doesn’t just help us escape the world, it helps us live in it. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.



Owl Post Edition: How to Pray with Stephanie Paulsell

Are ‘thoughts and prayers’ worth anything? This week, Casper is joined by our mentor Stephanie Paulsell to talk about the practice of prayer. Stephanie introduces us to ideas of prayer from theologians such as Evagrius Ponticus, Augustine of Hippo, Simone Weil, and Howard Thurman. And together, Stephanie and Casper talk about what prayer could look like during the Coronavirus.

We’ve had a flood of voicemails in the wake of the Coronavirus! This week, we’ve decided to feature voicemails about how people are thinking about and handling their lives during the epidemic. Thanks to Jemma, Rachel, Camden, Kenna and Paige for their beautiful contributions. 

Also, in case you missed it:

  • Casper has written a book: The Power of Ritual!
  • In July we’ll be doing a twenty-one city live show tour to celebrate the book and many tickets are already on sale.
  • We've launched several online classes. We have a new one starting Sunday just for kids! 

We’re taking next week off! Season 7, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows starts April 16th.
