  1. Wow, what an amazing look at the history of the last half of the 20th Century. Thank you Tracey for the insights you brought and way you were able to show the influences that changed the world at that time, both in Western society and the Church. Definitely recommend listening to this. It helps make sense of where we are now and why.

    • Thanks Lisa! Yes, it was an amazing talk. It reveals a lot of the reasons behind the issues the Church is facing today. Glad you got something from it.
