How To Live A Spirit-Led Life

Many Christians talk about the role of the Spirit in guiding daily life. Very few actually know what that means, or how to actually achieve such a God-soaked life. In this episode--recorded in front of a studio audience on the Christian holy day of Pentecost--Benton and Elane sort out who the Spirit is, what having the Spirit around means, and how to hear and heed Her (mostly quiet) nudgings.
