"I'm Nobody, Who are you?"
Followed by a
1:00-4:30 pm Workshop
Living A Course in Miracles The Holy Spirit’s voice is as loud as our willingness to listen. As we have over-learned the lessons of the ego, we have a bit of work to do to engage in a reversal of the thinking... We cannot behave appropriately unless we perceive correctly, and then do what God is asking us to do. It is the only way to true happiness.
