S2:E2 Theology & Human Flourishing

Human Flourishing is a growing topic of conversation in theology and the church. What do we mean exactly? What makes up human flourishing? In this episode Jeff Liou and Emily Hill talk to a public health scholar and practitioner, Dr. Jennifer Wortham of the Harvard Human Flourishing Project, and theologian Dr. Nadia Marais. We talk about what contributes to human flourishing, what inhibits our flourishing, and the role of church practices and church leaders.

We do want to notify our listeners that there is a brief mention of clergy abuse in the context of Dr. Wortham’s research about moral injury.

Dr. Nadia Marais is a professor of Systematic Theology at Stellenbosch University in South Africa.

Dr. Jennifer Wortham has a doctorate in Public Health and is a religion, spirituality, and forgiveness research associate for the Human Flourishing Program at Harvard University. She is the author of a memoir on forgiveness titled A Letter To The Pope: The Keeper of the Nest.
