March 22, 2016 – Faith & Society: Perfecting the World – Tikkun Olam
Season 9, Episode 12
In Judaism it is known as Tikkun Olam. On this episode of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we’ll discuss faith and the concept of perfecting the world. It is literally known as “repair of the world”, and is sometimes thought of as “construction for eternity.” Does the Jewish idea of Tikkun Olam have sister ideas within Islam and Christianity? And how about the idea of personal perfection, it’s found in Christianity, is it also a concept within Judaism and Islam? We’ll talk about perfecting the world, perfecting the self, and also the ways that those ideas are different from trying to be a perfectionist. Repairing the world and living one’s life in perfect love. That and much more is coming up on this installment of Friends Talking Faith.
