You Are Loved

You Are Loved


Follow This Show

Stay in the know about new episodes and updates.
An outside-the-box show of spiritual teaching and inspiration for outside-the-box thinkers from a minister who believes whole-heartedly in an outside-the-box kind of God. Practical, humorous and encouraging podcasts for the spiritual but not religious, progressive Christians, seekers, believers, hopers and skeptics. We may not be able to define God; "God is love," may be the closest we can get. But it's that love that makes all the difference. And when you know "You are loved," life is good!
