Ed Hays: Advent, Christmas and the Incarnation 2 of 2


Episode 2: Incarnation: Experiencing God all ways (21 min.)
"If we believe in Infleshment, then we see God not as other worldly, as separate, as different, but rather as of this world," Fr. Ed Hays tells Tom Fox. "The smell of burning leaves, an evergreen, a turkey in the oven ... Isn't that the smell of God? Doesn't God taste like pizza, a good steak, salmon?"

This is an encore presentation. The podcast first aired in December 2006.
