PHYLLIS TICKLE and the DIVINE HOURS: a Conversation about prayer and leadership with Rev. Tripp Hudgins [LDT047]

Today’s episode is focused on two topics. First, we want to commemorate the life of the wonderful Phyllis Tickle, who passed away on September 22. And secondly, we want to take a close look at the whole idea of spiritual practices, particularly daily prayer offices, and how they fit into a twenty first century Christian life. Of course, Phyllis published a series of books on “The Hours”, as they are called. So it all fits together.

The perfect person to talk with about both Phyllis and daily prayer practice is Rev. Tripp Huggins, of Berkeley,

California. Tripp is the director of admissions at American Baptist Seminary of the West, and a newly confirmed Episcopalian. I met him at The Wild Goose Festival, where this year he was the “Liturgical Coordinator.” This means that he would lead pop-up daily offices, three times a day, using the pocket edition of Phyllis’s book, The Divine Hours.

We have a pretty wide-ranging discussion about Phyllis, The Hours, the role of icons and liturgy in our faith, both historically and in contemporary applications.

 

So pour yourself a cup of tea (or what ever tickles your fancy), get a pen and a pad for notes, put on some headphones, and enjoy this very interesting episode of Love in a Dangerous Time.
