What happens when a Rabbi, a Reverend and a Swami walk into a radio station? That was a question I wanted answered so I invited them to my show for a conversation about faith, the journey they each took to reach their faith landing place and the questions they asked along the way and still ask.

I have explored many religions and spiritual paths since my brother died when I was 10 and I got so mad at God I couldn't go to church or even pray anymore. Along the way I realized that all of the religions and spiritual practices I explored had the same goal of connection to a being or idea bigger than humanity.

All the houses of worship I entered welcomed me with open arms even if sometimes it was with a bit of suspicion at first. What I learned for me is that God is bigger than any religion but that all religions had something to offer to help guide the path to a higher level of being.

On this episode I speak with Rabbi Michael Birnholz of Temple Beth Shalom of Vero Beach, Florida, Reverend Casey Baggot of Community Church of Vero Beach, Florida and Swami Durga Das of Kashi in Sebastian, Florida.
