Ed Hays: Advent, Christmas and the Incarnation 1 of 2

Episode 1: Incarnation: Turning the Sacred inside out (23 min.)
Fr. Ed Hays tells Tom Fox, "Incarnation means the 'Infleshing of God, The Divine Mystery.' We talk about spirituality. Well, I don't like that word; it implies duality. ... I prefer lifestyle. So the Incarnation is the Infleshing of the Divine Mystery within us and our whole life rotates around it."

This is an encore presentation. The podcast first aired in December 2006.
