    I am currently using this theme,
    Zeke 1.0 + Widgets by Michael D. Pollock

    I am trying to reduce the spacing between the lines in the sidebar or the "line height".

    I have searched several times through the stylesheet looking for the code to change with no luck. Any help would be great.

    Well, that's all caused by the crappy code you put into your text widgets... full of empty paragraph (<p>) tags.

    Example:

    <strong>Hear</strong>: Romans 10:17<p></P>
    <strong>Believe</strong>: John 3:16<p></P>
    <strong>Repent</strong>: Acts 17:30<p></P>
    <strong>Confess</strong>: Romans 10: 9-10<p></P>
    <strong>Be Baptized</strong>: Acts 2:38<p></P>
    <strong>Be Faithful</strong>: Rev. 2:10<p></P>

    Those paragraph tags at the end of each line are causing the "space".

    There is nothing to edit in the theme - but a lot to learn about using correct code.

    The <p> starts a paragraph and </p> ends a paragraph.

    The <br> starts a line break and </br> ends one.

    The difference between the two = the paragraph is a bigger 'space'.

    What moshu was saying is that <p> </p> is only putting a large gap of space.

    So, for sake of argument, <p></p> leaves a double space line, <br> </br> leaves a one and one-half line space and not using either (or only using <p> or <br> is simply single spacing).

    You only have to close these tags (meaning </p> or </br>) when you're ending or open with them (<p> <br>) when you're starting - and need a new paragraph or line.

    Works well sometimes as less space than a <p> Always recheck in IE because the differences can be huge.
