A promising Anglican podcast: “Miserable Offenders”

July 26, 2018

Recently it seems that a couple of Anglican podcasts have fallen by the wayside, so to speak.  But I am pleased to be able to link to a new one, called Miserable Offenders.  This podcast is put out by The North American Anglican blog and I will let their introduction speak for themselves:

“mis·er·a·ble – of·fend·ers:  a phrase taken from the General Confession contained in the Morning and Evening Prayer offices of the Book of Common Prayer. It is an admission of fault that leaves us no room to take credit for the grace that is offered to us in the person of Jesus Christ by a forgiving and loving God. 

There are certain Christians today who claim that such words cause too great an “offense” to modern sensibilities, to which we reply with the words of C. S. Lewis, who’s essay Miserable Offenders gets as the very heart of their meaning:

A serious attempt to repent and really to know one’s own sins is in the long run a lightening and relieving process. Of course, there is bound to be a first dismay and often terror and later great pain, yet that is much less in the long run than the anguish of a mass of unrepented and unexamined sins, lurking the background of our minds.

Living a life of repentance and gratitude is only the starting point though, we hope to dig deeply into classical Anglican sources for wisdom to address the contemporary questions of everyday life.

We hope you’ll follow along with us and join the discussion!”

There have been three episodes of the podcast so far and I think you will find each of them worth a listen.
