Sessions 2 & 3!

Today has just been amazing so far! Session 2 was Dr. Cloud's second talk & focused on "necessary endings". He talked about pruning, under what circumstances it occurs & how it applies to our lives. He also discussed how we're all hoarders on some level & how our fears & attachments make pruning difficult. "Today may be the enemy of your tomorrow."
Session 3 began w/ a Q&A with both Sheila & Dr. Cloud. Some "sound bites" from that include: "The bigger the trouble, the faster you run home", how the inability to forgive is crippling, & how we were never intended/designed to judge ourselves & that critical voice in our heads is a result of the Fall.
Sheila was back up next for her 2nd talk. This time she focused on Jesus' promise of peace in John 14:27. "Peace is not the absence of trouble, it's the presence of Christ." She reminded us we have to make the decision to be at the feet of the Peace Promiser. It's an attitude, a determination of will.
Almost time for the evening session! :)
