Spirituality in the Key of Life

Part 3

This will be the third of a four-part series of sermons on the theme of spirituality.  In the first two sermons, the point was made that human beings have certain nonphysical needs (such as the needs to forgive, be at peace, practice integrity, have guiding principles, and so on) and that what we call ‘spirituality’ is the way we address these needs.   In this third sermon in the series, we will explore the research on the power and influence of beliefs. There is a significant body of research demonstrating the enormous impact specific beliefs have on the mental, emotional, physical, and social conditions of human beings. Perhaps most interesting is the research regarding the impact of beliefs on physical health.   Exploring this subject will give us another way to understand the significance of spirituality in the ‘key of life.’
