We’ve recently changed up our Sunday morning routine — and I like it. The alarm goes off at 5:45 and the first thing I do after I manage to
not fall crawl down the ladder is grab the radio remote and hit the power button as I stumble to the bathroom. After catching news highlights, one of my favorite new shows begins. It’s called On Being. Krista Tippett is the host and she’s moderating discussions on topics that typically don’t lend themselves to civility and grace. Per their website, “On Being is a spacious conversation — and an evolving media space — about the big questions at the center of human life, from the boldest new science of the human brain to the most ancient traditions of the human spirit.” It’s an hour-long program so we always miss the second half; but for the last 5 weeks I have gone home Sunday afternoon and downloaded the rest of the days discussion to continue to engage my own thoughts. I’ve even downloaded the podcast so I can listen to it during my long Monday morning commute. A show about meaningful things, delivered in a meaningful way… I’m in.
