Podcast this (if you can)

I love the BBC’s religious broadcasting. I really do. (I listen to streaming radio.) They’ve even been known to broadcast from British Unitarian churches, as right they should along with all the other churches and houses of worship.

But sometimes fairness trumps the technical and artistic limits of the medium. I recall hearing about one of the televised worship programs broadcasting traditional, unprogrammed Quaker worship. You know: the meeting silent, waiting for the Spirit of God to move. It seems the production team had to use cutaways to show the building and the surrounding natural beauty since watching a bunch of still Quakers isn’t riviting television. (It probably isn’t even soothing television.)

The Beeb is now going one better:

British radio to broadcast the silent sound of worship
