December 18, 2018

In this week's episode, Jimmy and Alanna discuss the religious sense: that is, the innate urge to worship something bigger than oneself. They explore the different areas this instinct manifests - socially, culturally, and communally - as well as its influence on our daily lives and the choices we make. They also share thoughts about the topic of faith, and how it is never a "one-and-done" phenomenon, but rather a continually evolving relationship with the sacred. . . .
