February 19 - How Our Image of God Affects Us?
9:15 am in the East Room
Dick Oberg, a retired clinical social worker, who specialized in depression will be presenting and facilitating a discussion on the topic: How our image of God / the Divine / the Mystery / the Source affects our thinking patterns about ourselves, especially when under stress. For instance, where is your image of God on the spectrum of God as an external Judge, keeping score, and an image of God as an unconditional lover, present, no matter what messes we make? Dick’s bias: If we view God as loving us unconditionally, we can be patient and forgiving of ourselves, with much to accomplish, but nothing to prove.
