Show Notes

[10:32] How has William Law’s book been help­ful to you?

[12:45] How did the inter­sec­tion of work and spir­i­tu­al life play out for you?

[14:59] Did you find integration? 

[20:53] In a cul­ture that wouldn’t be drawn to the title, iron­i­cal­ly there is grace in this.

[22:16] What are some of the con­sid­er­a­tions, cul­tur­al­ly, that peo­ple should come at this book with?

[24:40] He presents the idea that every­thing is sacred. Where does beau­ty come in?

[26:36] How does Law’s view of holi­ness lend itself to engag­ing with beau­ty, or does it?

[29:15] In a sense this is a work that helps us move clos­er into being peo­ple who func­tion well.
