IGA006: Spirituality & Aging. Does Aging Connect Us To Our Soul?

Summary:

For this episode, Lee chats with Arthur Reublinger, who has been a hospice chaplain for many years. He could easily be considered to be a "Silver Inspiration" if he could just slow down enough in his life to even find out what that is. Now we can hear some of you roll your eyes already. But for those of you more introspective, just wait till you hear what this conversation contains.

They start off their discussion in the area of hospice care. (Lee: "I should actually do an entire episode on that topic because, as I discover, there is much more to learn there.") But the breadth of questions that follow in this discussion go well beyond that initial topic. This episode is sure to keep the interest of anyone who has ever wondered what they should believe.
