Expanding Our View Of Incarnation

An audio interview with Diarmuid O’Murchu

In this Omega Center interview Brie Stoner engages in conversation with prominent evolutionary thinker and writer Diarmuid O’Murchu, discussing topics from his most recent book Incarnation: An Evolutionary Threshold. Fundamental to this book are the questions “What does Incarnation mean for each of us?” and “What are the practical applications and implications that arise from this question?”  Diarmuid suggests we need an expanded view of “the body” and embodiment, and an evolutionary approach to gender, relationships, sexuality, desire, personal boundaries, paradox, and suffering.

“The way forward is the call to justice, the call to bring about a world in which there is greater participation and mutuality and empowerment —and that will involve a certain amount of suffering —but that’s suffering for the sake of a greater good….and that’s the suffering that makes more evolutionary sense, and in the long term makes more spiritual and theological sense. And I think that’s the kind of suffering Jesus wanted us to take on.”

We hope you enjoy this very engaging and thought-provoking conversation.
