Spiritual Tools for an Outrageous World

David Sacks

About

Hi, I’m David Sacks, and WELCOME to my podcast! I write and produce for TV including shows like "The Simpsons". I went to Harvard. I’ve even won an Emmy Award and a Golden Globe award. I love making cool TV shows, but I also have another side where I love exploring the fantastically, mysterious, beauty of creation, and seeing it through the lens of spirituality, quantum physics, psychology, storytelling and art. I give these talks to share all the amazing things I’ve learned along the way. I post a new talk every Sunday.

It Should Have Happened Already

One of the things that gets in the way of our closeness with God is the sense that there are certain things in our life that should have happened already. That lack of closure makes us wonder whether God is close to us, and to wonder if He is even on our side. In this week's talk, we discuss that most human feeling and share some stories from my recent trip to Israel. Best, David * See acast.com/privacy https://acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
