In this episode of Messy Jesus Business podcast, public speaker and author Gary Jansen talks with Sister Julia Walsh about everything from the supernatural to the spirituality of the seemingly mundane.

“The fact is that we’re spiritual beings. We have a body. We have a soul. They’re intertwined,” Jansen explains, “so everything is a spiritual experience, and has the opportunity to provide meaning for you.”

They discuss books, how they helped him discover his vocation and feel drawn to God. And they consider the reality of embracing a life of suffering when we choose the spiritual path.

They also talk about the mess of forgiveness, how it’s truly difficult and the lessons the difficulty of that journey can teach us.
