Ep.15 Healing the Divide

Everyone is talking about how divided we are as a country, as a community, as a people, but who is talking about how to fix it? In this episode, Shad & Melissa dive into some first steps to bring us back together and finding the middle.

Ep.14 Spiritual Privilege

Do people struggling economically rely on religion more? Isn’t the point of gratitude and manifestation just to get more things? Are we only able to do that because our basic needs are met? This week we talk about the concept of spirituality as a privilege.

Ep.11 Do Affirmations Work?

Do affirmations work?What’s the point of positive thinking? Is there a right way to do it? What about wishing for that yacht? Does this mean I’ll get it? Is there more to it? In episode 11 Shad and Melissa dive into affirmations and the power of positive thinking.

Ep.10 Birth & Death

Episode 10 Trying to keep it light around here – LOL Today we discuss birth, death, reincarination, the will to live (or the desire to not die). What are your beliefs about this important subject? Have you heard of bardo? Why did Melissa put a longshot bet on the 49ers to win the superbowl last year? All that and more! #reincarnation #podcast #christian #buddhism #unity

Is It Really Worth It?

How often do we hear that we should be more mindful, more positive, do affirmations, pray, meditate and have a more dedicated spiritual practice?  If we are active in our Unity Community we probably hear it a lot, but what we might not be hearing is “Why?” Why bother with spiritual practice when there are so many other exciting things we could be doing!? This is a great question that Rev. Shad will address in this video.

Ep.7 White Beard & White Blob

In Episode 7 we interview Melissa’s daughters, Sydney and Brooklyn, on what spirituality and faith looks like in thier lives. They lead us on a journey that ranges from “what is God?” to death and the afterlife. Of course Rev. Shad and Irrev. Melissa add their usual wisdom and comedic banter along the way.. #God #Jesus #Christ #Christianity #Children #podcast #christianPodcast #nondenominational #progressivechristian #progressivechristianity #unity #interfaith

Ep.6 Chop Wood, Carry Water

The Zen Buddhists saying, “Before enlightenment, chop wood carry water. After enlightenment, chop wood carry water,” speaks to the value of work, no matter what stage of life we are in. So why does our culture vilify work?Why do so many of us try to find ways to get out of work? Is work a necessary part of our spiritual growth or not? These are the questions and issues our dynamic duo tackle in this this episode.

Ep.5 Is Religion Dead?

Research shows that attendance is steeply falling off across all religions (except one). What does this mean for the future of #faith, #spirituality and #religion in our society? Rev. Shad and Irrev. Melissa take a serious, and not so serious, look into this topic with some deep insights and points of advice we can all learn from.

Practice Doesn’t Make Perfect

Divine Connection
