11: Feeling the Spirit

To kick off season 2, Brother Dan and Sister Lisa discuss the experience of 'feeling the spirit', and how it is not exclusive to any religion or faith-based reward system. 

 

Often referred to as The Holy Spirit in Christianity, Mormons like to call the third personage in the Godhead 'The Holy Ghost'. What's his story? How can he be everywhere we want him to be? If you don't feel his presence, what is wrong with you?!

 

They talk about how they have recognized the spirit both under the banner of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as well as other 'holy' places, and especially in nature. How confirmation bias can confuse and distort one's search for that feeling. And ultimately, how one who no longer believes that it results from certain beliefs or behavior might recognize it in their lives.

 

The Holy Ghost ... he dwells!
