I spend 2 hours in my car commuting daily to and from work.
Some people look at me in shock, wondering how I can spend time in the car so much and how it must be such a long drive.
To be honest, I don’t mind it. I take advantage of this time and listen to music, audiobooks and podcasts.
I spend a good amount time in my car listening to podcasts about Faith and Christianity.
Listening in the car has helped me weave through the many questions and doubts I have about Faith, God, and the Bible.
It has definitely contributed to my spiritual growth and increased my knowledge.
Think about this:
A college and/or university course is usually 3 hours a week for 12 weeks.
So, if I spend 5 days a week during my commute learning during my commute, I will have completed a University course in 4 weeks.
All for FREE!
There’s a wealth of knowledge at our fingertips, we just have to know where to find it.
As I come across interesting and valuable podcasts, I will share them with you.
Here are 3 podcasts that impressed me. You should be able to listen to them easily.
All you have to do is click on the title and the webpage will appear with the audio file.
1) Richard Rohr’s Homily (Title: At the End, Banquet)
Richard talks about how Church should be viewed as a banquet, a party, a feast – but often times we see Church as a duty.
2) Rob Bell’s Podcast (Title: Receipts)
Rob talks about the value of being grateful for *everything* in life – even a grocery list!
3) Bible for Normal People Podcast (Title: Science and the Bible)
Peter Enns interviews “Science Mike” McHargue about his thoughts about Science and the Bible.
Hope you enjoy the podcasts and it contributes to your spiritual growth this weekend!
