Listen to The Pursuit trailer
Welcome to The Pursuit with Christy Vines, an IDEOS/Aperture podcast, a podcast where issues matter, but stories matter more. On The Pursuit we explore the stories and experiences of people pursuing answers to the big questions.
Pliny the Elder, Roman savant and author of the first encyclopedia, Naturalis Historia, famously wrote, “an object in possession seldom retains the same charm that it had in pursuit.” No insult to Pliny, but I imagine our guests might object. For it is the object itself that inspires them, drives them and makes the pursuit of it worth it in the end.
Through the power of narrative and story, our personal pursuit is to inspire you to live well in the face of difference and love well in the places of disagreement.
THE PURSUIT, Season I
This season we focus on the pursuit of America – who we are, what divides us, and more importantly the things that put us back together. Whether it’s politics, culture, race, religion or entertainment, we pursue it all through a faith and reconciliation lens.
If you don't know the name Richard Mouw you can thank me later. Part theologian, part scholar, part influencer, what Richard Mouw does better than almost anyone is making people think differently about the ways in which faith drives us toward one another rather than apart.
Get ready for Rich's incredibly inspiring story of a lifelong pursuit of civility and a restless faith.
