Five Tastes of Holy Week: Episode 3 Sour

Listen to the podcast:

Episode 3: Sour

“Sour, stale bodies make preparations,

hands shaking, hands questioning if this will be the last time

the last time we’re all together

acidic words are exchanged

words that bite

there is excitement and unease

faith and doubt

mystery and wonder…”

This Maundy Thursday James takes us to the upper room of the Last Supper where the animated and anxious disciples gather in an atmosphere of electric anticipation.

A series of five audio meditations running daily Tuesday - Saturday of Holy Week. Poetry, drama, music, and prayer come together and invite us to rediscover the wonder of Easter through our tastebuds.

Each day we focus on one of the five tastes to experience the vividness of these timeless events in a new way. We will see how harshness, deliciousness, acidity, richness and tanginess can draw us further and deeper into this world-changing, universe-changing, week.

The series is a collaboration between James Cathcart and Laura Digan and features music from ‘Have You Room For Love?’ by The Bogle Band.
