Strap yourselves in – the WADR team go looking for the human soul. Is it that part of us that goes on after death? Or are we in fact embodied souls? Soul searching commentary this episode!
Soul. It’s a word that continues to have a lot of resonance. We look for a soul mate, we say something is good for the soul, we engage in some soul searching and we bare our souls to each other. None of us wants to be soulless. But what is a soul?
Michael Jensen and Megan Powell du Toit discover that this is one subject even Christians, who are in the business of ‘saving souls’, are less clear on.
The WADR team ask some searching questions – do we have a soul and what is it? – in For Argument’s Sake. Then they look at Swansong, a recent movie that is perhaps, soulless. Finally, it’s time to take a look at a book that Megan reckons is good for the soul – Anne of Green Gables.
