    Wow! I heard Tom Wilson interviewed recently, and decided to check out the podcast. This was quite the first episode for me to hear. I was born into a Catholic family, then my parents’ spiritual journey led us away from the Catholic Church into more non-denominational/Pentecostal groups. I think I have maintained some ties to Catholicism over the years, even as I have become more comfortable and accepted in the Protestant churches Heather tried and left behind. It was great to hear the conversation and the direction she is headed.

      Oh, I forgot to mention that my family moved around the Northeast a couple of places, and ended up in New Hampshire, where they have been in some combination for the last 30 years. I know about the tiny coastal part, too.  :-)

  2. i think the bible is an important book. i’m spiritual and have my own idea of god, but catholicism? they have a history of being very evil.

    “I just knew I was never going to make a lot of money…I’m going to write about my weird random leaf-on-the-sidewalk thing.” haha!  Loved this; thanks for sharing.

    Was this recorded in a pub ? Why is there distracting music playing during the interview ? So annoying !
