Ways to Listen

In the Christ and Culture podcast with Ken Keathley and Benjamin Quinn, we explore how the Christian faith intersects all avenues of today’s culture through conversations with leading thinkers.

Today’s Episode: We begin today’s episode with a call to pray for Ukraine. While we recorded this segment before Russia invaded Ukraine, Dr. Keathley’s words remain relevant: “Putin is a dictator. He does things that dictators do.

After that, Dr. Felicia Wu Song joins us to discuss her new book Restless Devices. Finally, Dr. Benjamin Quinn tells us what he’s reading right now.

Our lives are completely enmeshed, preoccupied with the digital world… A part of our consciousness is dedicated to it.

Highlights

  • “Our lives are completely enmeshed, preoccupied with the digital world… A part of our consciousness is dedicated to it.”
  • “We are permanently connected to the Internet…. Even when we’re not looking at a screen, there’s a part of us internally that’s become dedicated to attending to what’s happening in our digital worlds. That can have an impoverishing affect on us when there is never silence, there is never stillness, when we are never fully just with ourselves.”
  • “Where can we have pockets of freedom? It’s about our habits…. [We need] counter liturgies that push back against secular liturgies and redirect our loves back to the kingdom of God.”
