With Andrew Cunning
This week's Worldly Wellbeing podcast is with Andrew Cunning (Twitter: @TheTad92, IG: @tadcunning), a theologian, teacher and writer based in Belfast, NI. He has a PhD in theology and literature, and published his first book, Marilynne Robinson, Theologian of the Ordinary, in 2020. He is now writing and teaching theology across Ireland, from Trinity College Dublin to Harbour Faith Community in Carrickfergus. Andrew is passionate about inclusion and all that entails within religious communities, and is currently writing a book aimed towards helping people join the theological conversation.
In this episode, we talk about the value of reading in groups, how faith can and continues to be divisive, the joy of literature, and the complexities of building genuine community. Andrew mentioned some great resources and authors in our chat - here’s the list we promised!
