    Fall Survey: October 2016

    James Finley’s DVD series on Mystics is superb and becomes more and more helpful with each new viewing. James pulls together from all areas of contemplative writings to present a coherent, inspiring, and at times delightfully humerus presentation to draw us deeper into the world of contemplative living. Best I have ever seen or heard
