Kyle shares how his personal spirituality has guided him through the traumatic events in his youth and his adult life. Kyle and Dave discuss attending the same church as teenagers but having dramatically different experiences of the same institution. What elements of Christianity are necessary beliefs for a Christian as opposed to just Christian ideas that can vary? What should our motivation(s) be for our personal spirituality and beliefs?
