Doing the Stuff is back for 2017 and it’s been such a long holiday it feels like a sabbatical. Not that Mark and Andy are complaining. In this first episode, we look at why as a kid you were only happy with your Lego house until you saw your friend’s truck. And today why you are probably more jealous of your best friend than you like to admit. Rene Girard is our guide. It's a deep dive into mimetic desire, conflict, sacrifice, jealousy and scapegoats. It’s heavy stuff but perfect for reflecting on the big things in life, like the eternal sacrifice of Jesus. And it could even be useful for little things, but we’ll leave that up to you. Dig in!
