I loved that pod cast. Not going to lie, usually not of fan of things like that, they can come across as dry and boring a lot. Listening to Karen speak felt like I was listening to an inner dialog recapping my life. I have may not been around as long as Karen or had all the experiences she has had, but I could see the parallels. I went to school at a VERY traditional Catholic school and for part of my life was a very devout Catholic. After a while I felt like I lost the connection to God. I was just going through the motions. I then went in an almost 180 and wanted nothing to with God or religion. I have now gotten to the point were I realized my issues were not with God but the segregated manipulative ways of man made religion. I have been trying to learn as much as I can about other religions, which is why along with this class I am also taking Eastern Religion this semester. As odd as it sounds I felt more of a spiritual movement from listening to this then anything else in a long while. I am going to have to try and find out more info on Karen Armstrong.
