United Methodist Podcasts
In our commitment to inform, inspire, and engage the Church and the world, United Methodist Communications is podcasting. Podcasts are another way we can share God's love with the members and leaders of The United Methodist Church as you commute to work, walk the dog, work out in the gym, or fold laundry.
Get Your Spirit in Shape
Get Your Spirit in Shape is a free, 30-minute, show that features conversations with leaders, authors, and others who offer tips, tools and things to think about as we seek to grow in our spiritual lives. The casual conversations are helpful and enjoyable.
Join us as we get, and keep, our spirits in shape.
