The Burglar

This excerpt is taken from “The Meaning of Forgiveness” by Kenneth Wapnick, Page 101 Several years ago, I was awakened in the middle of the night by the sudden realization there was someone standing in my room. After the momentary shock, I remembered “there is nothing to fear” (workbook, p. 77), and calmly asked my uninvited guest: “What can I do for you?” The situation was not obscure, however. It was clear that... Read More

How to Stop Running Away from Family Conflicts

This is a profound issue affecting everyone. Taken from Question #79: The relationship I have with my 5 siblings is, for the most part, one of special hate.

This does not give me peace but it does minimize the... Read More

How Should I Teach Course Principles to Children?
