In this weeks episode we start a 5 week series on Eastern Mysticism. As we dive into this topic we start with an introduction on what it is and its attempts to understand the world in which we live.
But before we get into the topic we listen to Daniel tell a story of a van that caught fire and the ensuing adventure with his dad and then Roy talks about the Brexit issue that took place this last week and how unserious we as Americans see things like this in history.
We start off the conversation with a question you might not hear very often: What do you think about orange peels? Are they real? Or simply your imagination? As we look into Eastern Mysticism we talk about a story written by J.D. Salinger (the author of The Catcher and the Rye) found in his book titled Nine Stories, called "Teddy". In this story we see a young boy who holds to a worldview deeply rooted in Eastern Mysticism and we examine how his worldview affects not only his life but those around him.
We also examine how we can approach the opportunity to talk to people looking to Eastern Mysticism for answers about The Total Truth. Christianity provides true hope and redemption in a world that is hurt and broken.
