Episode 24: Following Your “Knowing”
Linda and Lana speak with Reverend Barbara Lea Callaghan, minister at Hancock United Church of Christ, about how a very early knowing inspired her to overcome the many obstacles of self doubt and disconnection she encountered along the way to realizing her calling as a minister. That knowing gave her the clarity of purpose to create and foster the community of depth and love that she leads today.
Barbara shares with us the importance of listening to your inner wisdom, learning to move beyond fear, living into courage and being fully awake to life.
