Bruce I do not comment all the time as I would just say the same thing every time. These sessions are just wonderful and I listen to you every morning before I get up.

Thank you Bruce for your honesty and openness, I am encouraged by your input it is so helpful when one is of the shut in brigade! I know when we see the Lord there will be no denominations only those who know the saving work of the cross and the in dwelling of the Holy Spirit. We are all on a journey and it’s like a mountain, as we reach the peak the climb is hard!!

I am looking forward to this whole series. I loved the Generousity of spirit which I have only now finished. But I am on track to be up to date in time for Advent. You give us all permission to be less than perfect and help us in so many practical ways. For instance, now when I am awake in middle of the night, instead of just reaching for my kindle, I will listen to the night noises and allow myself to be my true self. Maybe I too will have some deep reflections, with not as many distractions as… Read more »
