Emmanuel Buteau joins me for a new “Conversations” episode of the Liminal Theology Podcast. Emmanuel and Jonathan Best explore contemporary issues and concerns through practical theology and liminality.
In this episode, Emmanuel and Jonathan explore the significance of Easter, particularly in its meaning as a symbol. They place Easter within the context of suffering, asking what the resurrection means in times of suffering and death. Together they ask questions of Easter and explore how global and individual suffering stresses the symbol of Easter. The conversation eventually shifts to the cross, exploring its capacity to hold suffering and the challenge it issues when we encounter it. Emmanuel and Jonathan search together for meaning and clarity, finally reaching a point of understanding about religious symbols and their enduring importance. We enjoyed this conversation and hope you will too! It’s presented here in its entirety, with only minimal editing.
