Who Made Me the Teacher?

Sometimes it seems that there is only one right way—our way. We get immensely uncomfortable when jarred out of our comfort zone by exploring a new way of being, trying someone else’s suggestions.

How Do We Know What’s Real?

Active addicts live in a world of “make believe.” Our minds become confused to the point where we can’t tell the true from the false. Once we enter recovery, we break the denial, confront and begin to change our “reality.” Join Revs. Lonnie and Dan as they share their journey from hopelessness to a new reality.

Terminal Uniqueness: A Fatal Flaw

What’s Your Motive?

We interact with our fellow humans on this journey of life, in a multitude of ways, for a variety of reasons. On the spiritual path, we ask ourselves: Why do we do what we do? What’s in it for us? Who are we trying to please, impress, or persuade? Join Revs. Lonnie and Dan as they share how they learned to be in integrity with and honest about motives while still being true to personal aspirations and goals.
