Life is heavy. Life is stressful. It’s hard to respond wisely, when anger is easier. In this episode we talk about responding to stress, Christianity as an eastern religion, the power of patience, and the way in which Jesus critiqued power. Also, we reflect on the current terrible events in Turkey and Syria. And Nick blesses BP and Shell with a new liturgical gesture of blessing.
