Evangelisation Brisbane’s new Going Deeper podcast is all about getting to the heart of what it means to be Catholic, says producer David Kruse. Source: The Catholic Leader.

“Beneath what we do and what we say (as Catholics), and beneath all the tenets of the Catholic faith … at the core of it is a ‘why’, and a reason, and the reason is a person and the person is Jesus,” Mr Kruse said.

“Even deeper than that, it’s a particular type of relationship with the person of Jesus Christ and so I can’t stress that enough with the podcast… that’s really the core of it.”

Evangelisation Brisbane Adult Formation Team associate director Shane Dwyer hosted the podcast with guests coming on for 20-30 minute segments discussing daily life as a Catholic, theology and faith experiences.

Mr Dwyer is an experienced spiritual director with a history in pastoral and ministry work.

The podcast was an extension of Evangelisation Brisbane’s Going Deeper program with episodes once a week and full of “practical theology” to help anyone living out their faith, Mr Kruse said.

He said the topics that started the conversations during the episodes came from a 52-week guide that Mr Dwyer developed, “but where it goes from there is really organic”.

“There’s kind of a guide, but the conversation is all about how the guest responds and what resonates with them and what they want to talk about,” he said.
