Repairing, Rebuilding or Renewing: Jumpstart Your Spiritual Life with Rabbi Sherre Hirsch & Dave Schmelzer

Air Date: Wednesday, March 22, 2017

During this week’s radio show you will learn about:

  • Using faith-based rituals to wake up and pull out of the mundane
  • Handling feelings of overwhelm from current events
  • The value in carving out communal space with people of differing viewpoints
  • Viewing each day as a clean slate

For over twenty years, Rabbi Sherre Hirsch has been sharing her intimate counsel and wisdom with people in all kinds of “pulpits,” ranging from her congregation at Sinai Temple in Los Angeles to the audience of the Today show to small Southern Baptist churches. She serves as the spiritual life consultant for Canyon Ranch Properties and is a highly sought-after inspirational speaker and teacher who routinely addresses congregations, corporations, women’s groups, leadership organizations, and countless other audiences throughout the United States.

Dave Schmelzer is the Executive Director of Blue Ocean Faith, an innovative network of churches throughout the country that are looking to thrive in very nonchurchgoing settings.  Dave is the author of Not the Religious Type: Confessions of a Turncoat Atheist (Tyndale 2008). He has a background both in theology (Fuller Seminary, '87) and the arts (Stanford University, '84, and a decade working as a playwright). He lives in Santa Monica with his wife, Grace, and their five children. More here.
