Most all of us have experienced times of spiritual confusion and disconnection from Divine Presence. Where do we turn when we’ve lost our faith and are overwhelmed by feelings of loneliness? Cameron has gone through such times, and here she reflects on how to rediscover what has spiritually inspired her, and helped release her from an artistic block. In this honest and introspective dialogue, she shares that she believes there is continuity of life after death, and she prays for friends who are living and for those who have died. She says, “I pray for about 40 people. I pray that, first of all, they be guarded and guided, and secondly, that they have knowledge of God’s will and the power to carry it out. And thirdly, I pray that they have sobriety, health, solvency, creativity, joy, wisdom, and serenity.” (hosted by Michael Toms)
