The Catholic Tradition Podcast: 164 – When “attractive the tradition” manner loving mediocrity

Aug 17, 2023

Nowadays it is taken without any consideration that we as Christians are known as to
“interact the tradition” so as to evangelize. Frequently “attractive the
tradition” manner paying an inordinate quantity of consideration to in style
business leisure so as to display unbelievers how hip we
are, straining to discover a “Christ-figure” in each and every comedian guide film,
and making worship song as repetitive, melodically banal, and
emotionalistic as conceivable. Previous a undeniable level, “cultural
engagement” starts to look like a noble-sounding excuse to revel in
mediocrity – and Christians, sadly, are as a lot in love
with mediocre leisure as any individual else.

The unconventional doctrine of “cultural engagement” is only one matter
coated in Joshua Gibbs’s difficult and entertaining new guide,
Love What Lasts: How one can Save Your Soul from Mediocrity.
Joshua joins Thomas Mirus for a wide-ranging dialog about how
we make a choice to spend our loose time and why it issues.

  • The risks of creative mediocrity
  • The significance of boredom
  • Why streaming has been horrible for song
  • The other varieties of Christian “cultural engagers”
  • Unusual and not unusual just right issues and the way each are threatened by way of
    the mediocre
  • How the “particular” apes the holy
  • The meme-ification of artwork
