A Christian Reads the Tao te Ching - Tales of Te: Stories of virtue and the lack thereof (chapter 38)

Tales of Te: Stories of virtue and the lack thereof (chapter 38)

A Christian Reads the Tao te Ching

Episode 26 continues chapter 38 from last week, the first chapter of the book of Te. We will go through the three types of "low virtue" that Lao Tzu offers, and then I will tell some stories from my own life that illustrate each of these three (hence the title).

In this episode, I start with considering the idea that cultivating virtue may have parallels with learning a foreign language.

The rest of the content is divided into three parts:

1. Etiquette/ritual - my "perfect Christian life" as a closet atheist

2. Righteousness/justice - an embarrassing story where I tried to overthrow Bible class with a petition

3. Benevolence - the time I chose to make the right choice in ministry, even when it was really hard
