This week’s posting from Steven Moe
Peter Beck on love and ‘thin places’
Peter was the Dean of the Christchurch Cathedral at the time of the earthquakes in 2011. I chose to air this interview now because we talk about love and acceptance in this and it feels like the most appropriate interview given the Christchurch attacks which have just happened.
In this wide ranging conversation, we discuss his background in the UK, his studies at Oxford University and what led him to become a priest, how he ended up in New Zealand and his memories of the quakes. We also take time to reflect on spiritual ‘thin places’ where the distance between physical things and spiritual things is less thick. It has been explained as “a place where the boundary between heaven and earth is especially thin. It’s a place where we can sense the divine more readily.”
This is the 89th interview and if you enjoyed this you might enjoy some of the earlier ones as well at www.theseeds.nz
