In August of 2012 I was asked to speak at an event for Spirituali-TEA at St. Philip Lutheran Church in Littleton Colorado. Spirituali-TEA is a discussion group that meets for spiritual conversations as well as coffee, tea and wonderful desserts. Attendees are spiritual seekers looking to expand their understanding through diverse and often opposing belief systems being presented. I was invited to be the featured speaker because I am a Spiritualist minister. My talk was titled “I See Dead People Everywhere!”
The plan was to speak about my journey with Spiritualism and my work as an ordained minister in the Spiritualist faith. The whole experience was a blast. Not knowing what kind of reception I would receive, I found the group to be very welcoming and filled with thoughtful questions. There were 75 people in attendance. The entire 68 minute talk is now available to you online. I hope you enjoy this!
What is Spiritualism
Spiritualism is the belief that the spirits of the dead have both the ability and the inclination to communicate with the living. The afterlife, or the “spirit world”, is seen by spiritualists, not as a static place, but as one in which spirits continue to evolve. These two beliefs: that contact with spirits is possible, and that spirits are more advanced than humans, lead spiritualists to a third belief, that spirits are capable of providing useful knowledge about moral and ethical issues, as well as about the nature of God. Some spiritualists will speak of a concept which they refer to as “spirit guides”–specific spirits, often contacted, who are relied upon for spiritual guidance. (Wikipedia)
