When people ask me about my faith, I explain that I'm spiritual but not religious.  I think there is something out there holding this all together but I don't think it's an old fatherly figure in a white robe. I have always been interested in learning about all faiths and support everyone in choosing their own path as long and they don't feel the need to convert me.  I have a live and let live philosophy about it. 

In this podcast we discuss the part faith and spirituality play in a relationship.  How does it play out in your relationship?
