    Elouise - yes, I recorded "Blessing Your End of Life" with Arthur. Thank you for the kind words! Here's a recording of one of the pieces that I mentioned on the recent "Healing Womanhood" interview with Megan - it's a 16th century motet celebrating the birth of Christ, and is a personal favorite. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdO-rYUyduk

    Thank you, Cynthia! I’ll have a look at that again! Are you Cynthia Harris, the musician of the beautiful music on ‘Blessing Your End of Life”? If you are, I would love to know what music you listen to. You compose beautiful music!

    Hi, Elouise! If you listen to "An MRI of Fathering," the whole hiring for chemistry thing comes into focus & makes sense in a grid of personalities, abilities, giftedness, etc. Even aside from that, it's one of my favorites!

    This was a real stop-and-think blog. I can already see that the rest of today & the coming days will involve examining my own thought & belief structure (and what I've done to implement them) to analyze which are real values & which are just my desires. At this point, I don't know! I've never heard anyone talk about this before. I am taking a big gulp at the launch of this season, because, yes, I can see that this one is going to hurt. But better to embrace the pain & emerge into more of the truth, into light.. Thanks for including us in this part of your journey.

    I love this, thank you. I appreciate the glaring honesty and the ‘to the point’ lists of values. I have never seen the values on the SLG website until today (and I’ve been hanging around for a few years). What a nice surprise! The only one that surprised or baffled me, was the ‘hiring for chemistry’. I didn’t think that was a value for SLG, not that it’s a bad value. Just a surprising one.

    Wow! Ouch...not sure which one I should be saying first, being completely authentic here, I have been confusing desires with values in certain areas of my life. Taking a pause to evaluate with God what is true to my character level values and what are merely desires that honestly get pushed to the back burner without the value to drive them. Is it this simple?

    Replied by : Arthur Burk Not really. Change is not often simple. But it is certainly the first step to sorting out what is and isn't reality.

    This is a powerful truth so rarely if ever discussed in the church. Very challenging to me personally. I appreciate your transparency and honesty. Thank you.
