Conversations Between Science and Religion – How Life Is Like Hitchhiking

As Yogi Berra once said, predictions are very difficult — particularly ones about the future. The same could be said about spiritual journeys “to find yourself” or your “true calling.” We start out in one direction thinking it will be a direct route to enlightenment when, no sooner than we know it, we find the road closed and then off we go, like a hitchhiker catching a ride to an uncertain destination. In this book, A Spiritual Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Universe: Travel Tips for the Spiritually Perplexed, this week’s guest, Paul Rademacher, tells of his journey from construction worker, to falling off a roof, to working as a minister, then as Executive Director of the Monroe Institute, and now as publisher of Inner Story Magazine. His story is spiritual but even better: it’s real.
