Rockstar Nun Sister Joan Chittister Explores The Paradox Of Faith (All Together Podcast)

Welcome to this week’s ALL TOGETHER, the podcast dedicated to exploring how ethics, religion and spiritual practice is informing our personal lives, our communities and our world. All Together is hosted by Paul Raushenbush, the executive editor of HuffPost Religion. You can download All Together on iTunes, or Stitcher.

It’s hard to talk about this week's guest on without using the oxymoron "rock-star nun". But it really does fit. Sister Joan Chittister has influenced the spiritual lives of literally millions of people with her preaching and writing that includes more than 50 books. Her most recent book is titled “Between the Dark and the Daylight: Embracing the Contradictions of Life."

Sister Joan spoke to Raushenbush from Dublin, Ireland about Holy Week, the paradoxes of faith, the spiritual practice of writing, and whether she has a ‘bucket list.’

Next week's All Together will feature author Tony Jones about his new book Did God Kill Jesus?
