Convivium Podcasts have been started during the Convid-19 restrictions as a way for people self-isolating or social distancing themselves to engage with our Convivium vision. Episodes are recorded each Wednesday and are available thereafter from this website or through Facebook and Twitter.
In this, our first series, Mark Clavier takes listeners on an overnight journey up Cadair Idris, a mountain in west Wales, where he encounters paradoxes that reveal something about the heart of Christianity and living well with the creation. Drawing on previous hikes and treks, Mark reflects on eternity, time, silence, words, wonder, and the ordinary and how they relate to the sacraments. Partly a love letter to Wales, Mark concludes by considering the Welsh words hiraeth and tangnefedd, longing and peace, that are written into the landscape of this ancient land. Paradoxes in an Ancient Landscape is a profoundly ecological vision of the Christian faith that readers of Wendell Berry, Rowan Williams, and Norman Wirzba will enjoy.
