SOF discusses religion, spirituality, and such. It's rare in the world of religion podcasting to find shows that don't promote a particular point of view, but SOF does this. SOF is a show of exploration. It takes its time to really go into topics in depth.
This week, SOF re-broadcast a show with about parenting and spirituality. The premise is that children are innately spiritual; what is important is how we as parents respond to their questions and thoughts. This has been my experience with J. He thinks and talks about G-d all the time. Granted, he goes to Jewish day school, but even outside of that, he seems to have a very natural relationship with G-d and spirituality.
Here is a quote from this week's show:
"I think society does a very good job of teaching us how to be consumers and a very good job in teaching us how to be competitors. The question I think parents are struggling to answer is how do we not just teach our children's minds, but how do we teach their souls? We want our children to be gracious and grateful. We want them to have courage in difficult times. We want them to have a sense of joy and purpose. That's what it means to nurture their spiritual lives."Is your interested piqued yet?
