Conversation #1 Joseph Byrd OLF no. 5 / by Joshua Banner

For the first Invitation Podcast interview, Josh sits down with his spiritual director, Joseph Byrd OLF. As with any conversation with Joseph, prepare yourself to hang on tight to the dynamic spiritual ‘flow’ of this conversation. Topics covered are prayer, suffering, waking to God as if from a dream, music, prison outreach, CS Lewis, Dallas Willard, Teilhard de Chardin, St. Ignatius, St. Francis of Assisi, Isaac of Nineveh, Evelyn Underhill and more. Most importantly, this discussion demonstrates the rich spiritual friendship between Josh and Joseph that spills over into their two years of going to the EC Brooks Correctional Facility in Muskegon MI to train a group of inmates to become spiritual directors.
