The Leap of Faith Friday, Oct 4th

75 Years in Japan

On the Leap of Faith this week, we talk with author and historian Tom Holland about his latest book Dominion: The Making of the Western Mind. In the book, he explores the revolutionary effects of Christianity on the Western psyche. We meet film maker James Creedon and hear the story of Sister Paschal (Jennie) O’ Sullivan, who spent 75 years in Japan as a missionary nun. From Galway, we’ll hear of a novel idea for carbon displacement at the Galway Jazz Festival that benefits St.Nicholas’ Collegiate Church.
