Do Christians believe in angels?  Sure.  Demons and other unclean spirits?  They show up in the New Testament for sure.  But what about the spirits of the dead--especially good and faithful people like the prophet Samuel?  We don't really know what to think about a strange story like the one where King Saul consults a medium (sometimes called a "witch" in some renderings) who conjures up the spirit of the deceased prophet who had been a thorn in Saul's side for all of his reign.  What are we supposed to do with a story that takes ghosts and spirits seriously, and why would a story like this have been remembered and preserved in our scriptures?  That's where the conversation turns in today's episode of Crazy Faith Talk, as pastors Erica, Sarah, and Steve look at the story known commonly as "The Witch of Endor."  So in between ocassional Star Wars and Harry Potter references, find some insights on this story, and maybe why it's worth listening to the voices God sends in to our lives who challenge us, precisely because they challenge us.  Join the conversation on this week's episode!
