This podcast comes to you from Nomad’s first offline Gathering. We had a great weekend of food, drink, conversation, music and meditation. We also interviewed Mark Vernon. Mark was an Anglican priest but developed deep doubts about the faith. His subsequent journey took him through atheism, to agnosticism, through ancient Greek philosophy, to a Christian faith that sees doubt and uncertainty as integral parts.

Interview starts at 8m 39s

“We do need some certainty in order to live so I think that the need for some certainty is not of itself something to chastise people for. But I think it’s a question of whether that becomes rigid so that it squeezes out the space for genuine searching and doubt and uncertainty as well.”
