The Spiritual PodCast Series is brought to you by the Spiritual Path Church, New Castle, PA. The podcasts are intended to enlighten and inform the world that Spiritualism has many different facets, and can appeal to people in many ways. Through the series, we will cover different aspects of spirituality, not just those associated with Spiritualism. We will include the history, organization, beliefs of the church, as well as the way those beliefs interface with other religious and secular concepts about the existence of an afterlife.
