New Vesperisms Podcast Episode! Here's a talk I gave in June about the parallels between the 14th century Plague and our own time, particularly the overlap of social movements.
This summer, when I was getting ready to release my latest novel, A Cloud of Outrageous Blue, I began to notice some really uncanny parallels between what was going on socially as a result of the pandemic and lockdown, and the dynamics of the Great Plague of 1348, which the novel is about. Most notably, the epidemic of fear and shame which are tearing us apart. This is nothing new—and artists MUST get their heads screwed back on straight if we're to live up to what life is demanding of us right now: to be a prophetic voice to our world.
If you prefer it on YouTube, that's here as well.

This is why God gave us sunsets. To say good bye to a troubled day. God gave us sunrises to welcome a new day filled with hope. Hugs to everyone. I am always thinking of you all 🌻
