Dec 10 Richard Rohr

On December 10th we listened to this recording of Fr. Richard Rohr https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l9_EHq3UO7I. It was worth it.
On December 3rd we heard member Jim Wilson give his story based on his manuscript "Survival of the Fittest: How God saw me Through." This presentation was thoroughly enjoyable, carried by Jim's naturally good nature and upbeat spirit. He is a man who regularly counts his blessings and feels a deep sense of gratitude and joy in his life.
