This audio comes from our September 26th gathering. As the format of the group is a free-flowing sharing of our life in Christ, I have to piece together the more cohesive segments for an mp3. The frustration of not being able to persuade others regarding the truth of Christ has come up more than once since we started meeting. What I have found so exciting is a growing realization, as well as a growing lack of stress, in knowing that it is not up to us to change another’s mind. I start out responding in view of someone’s interaction with a Jehovah’s Witness, but I immediately springboard into the overwhelming reality that there is no real difference when it comes to the religious mind of man.
