Enlightenment and the Christian
This is designed for the new person, who is trying to figure out all this (stuff) out about being on the path, the journey, whatever you call it. I especially want to talk with the Christian on the path, as they begin their journey to enlightenment. I have spent almost my entire life serving as a Christian minister.
