Brother David Steindel-Rast

Brother David is one of my favorite people. Now well into his eighties he expresses a loving wisdom about life that is inspiring, encouraging - and realistic. In a recent trip to Argentina he generously gave a one hour video interview which you can find here.

In it he talks about life, death, faith, faith crises, depression, the gifts of other religions, psychology and spirituality, how to talk about (and talk to) God, his own wish for a "gentle death"… and much more. The interviewer is skilled, and humble in her honest personal questions as well as the scheduled topics. I know an hour is long time when we are used to short sound bites but it is a treat. Much better than an hour of TV!
