“Religion” means something different to each one of us, and there are multiple ways of defining it. On today’s podcast we have Sam Spector, the 31-year old rabbi of Congregation Kol Ami, Utah’s largest synagogue, who is here to enlighten us on his vision of faith and how it leads to creating a path of growth within ourselves.
- Sam explains that faith can help people find themselves because it can be perceived as a channel of expression for our beliefs, hopes and visions
- The importance of seeing beauty in other races, religions and ethnicities without forgetting that each one of us is unique and different
- Sam describes his unique way of giving advice to people who come to him asking for help: he tries not to be judgmental and always joins them in walking through their narratives and traditions in order to help them understand more about themselves
- Sam brings a new perspective in understanding that everyone can make mistakes, because it makes us human, not bad people
- Religion not as the answer to everything, but as a tool to channel our hopes and work toward being a better person
