"We're really called not to dispel mystery but to abide it, to engage it." Some exquisite deep listening this week with Joe Henry​!

Cherished by fans and fellow musicians alike, he’s produced a dozen albums of his own and for an array of artists, including Ani DiFranco​, Elvis Costello​, Bonnie Raitt​, and Billy Bragg​. And, he’s written songs together with Rosanne Cash​ and Madonna​. With this amazing singer-songwriter, we probe the mystery and adventure of discovering life through music.

"What we need is less of iPhone spirituality, and more rejuvenation of heart and soul."

We crave community and intimacy. But, are we looking for it in the wrong places — in our phones and mobile devices rather than in each others' eyes? With Rumi as his guide, Omid Safi on needing less digital connection and more rejuvenation of our human relationships.

Today marks 50 years since Malcolm X’s assassination in 1965. Our weekly columnist Omid Safi with a passionate call to see the relevance of Malcolm’s fierce, radical critique and draw inspiration for today's world. With some incredible archival video too.

Our greetings matter as much as our answers. What happens when we intentionally bring our hearts to the forefront of our interactions? What happens if we take a page from the Tzoltzil Mayans and ask one another “How is your heart?”

"How can we now be present and supportive of all the beautiful lives which have not been extinguished, as a way of honoring those we have lost and found at the same time?"

In this special commentary from Krista Tippett, she invites us to ponder and shine a light on all the people living lives of quiet nobility who are doing good in the world before they are extinguished.

With so much media coverage of the violence and mayhem and murders, how do we shine a light on the people living lives of quiet nobility who are doing good in the world before they are extinguished?

"I don’t want to live a life measured by check boxes. I want to live a life measured by acts of unhurried love."

When yes is overused it takes what should be a whole-hearted gift and turns it into an anxiety-producing check box. Courtney Martin's argument for saying "no" gracefully and learning to measure life in acts of unhurried love.

"Merton knew how many seekers think that the spiritual life requires a long face, a somber voice, and a downcast spirit of forced humility. Wrong! It requires a full range of fully-lived human experience."

Aided by the Persian poet Hafiz, Parker Palmer reminds us that the inner life does not have to be a somber one, but a life rich with experience.

"Given that loss and grief are such a basic part of being human, it’s astounding how widely unacknowledged and unexpressed they are in the modern world, especially among men. Consider this: when was the last time you saw a man weep freely without apology or shame?"

The memory of a father weeping reminds a son how men often don't tend to grief well. But, by sharing emotions, fathers may be a key in helping boys grow into stronger, more compassionate human beings.

After a two-week hiatus, Courtney Martin is back with a new column. Yay!

Closure may not be all it's cracked up to be. Courtney reflects on the death of a friendship and the insatiable, sometimes unsatisfying, need to create silver linings where none exist (or do they?).

"I know that embracing the reality of death is an important part of living a good life. I reserve the right to despise death with everything I've got, not trying to soothe myself with nostrums."

We are told to acknowledge the fact that death is part of life. Embracing emotional honesty, Parker Palmer shakes his salty fist at fate's inevitable hand with a poem by Edna St. Vincent Millay.

"The end of life has its own nature also worth our attention."
The highly acclaimed and beloved poet Mary Oliver reads her four-part poem, "The Fourth Sign of the Zodiac," — a poem in which she explores death, purpose, and the call to live after being diagnosed with lung cancer several years ago.
