There’s a lot here to unpack explore.
Having a life coach, coaching one another.
We are spouses not coaches, do not coach someone who isn’t asking to be coached.
We we disassociate from the church we become it’s visitor’s rather than it’s members. As visitor’s we no longer criticize, but we appreciate the beauty. At the same time we are no longer obligated or affiliated to that organization and owe nothing to it or viceversa.
May have to listen twice. Good job, good perspectives.
Ok it was a while ago that I listened to this but I remembered something said in this podcast that helped me have a better day this last Sunday. I went with the idea that I was a guest. I was not there to point out errors or problems. I realized others were there to participate in their spiritual needs and it was not my job to correct or fix. By doing that I was ruining others experience. I still saw issues in the lessons or talks but with the mindset of being a guest I was better able to let it go.
