Final Installment of Comments and Questions from Under the Influence Webinar

Here is the final installment of some more wonderful comments and questions from last evening’s Webinar on myUnder the Influence of Jesus new book, Under the Influence of Jesus: The Transforming Experience of Encountering Christ.

  • I find that when I am not at peace all the others become more difficult to demonstrate, easier when I am at peace, trusting God. (Ron W.)
  • I wonder how to say “sourpuss” in Latin. I’m picturing the translators debating whether to use “sourpuss” or “crankypants.”  😉  (Susan L.)
  • Personal stories are powerful (Joe K.)
  • I had heard to look for God in others.  Then someone said, “look at others as God would see them”.  Made an entirely different outlook to me. (Theresa W.)
  • Although my parents were discriminated against and treated unjustly in our little town, and even among the Catholic Church members, and I would get so angry, my mother was tolerant, understanding, and said to pray for these people..she was Jesus filled. (Patricia R.)
  • Before the Webinar I reviewed Sunday’s CCD lesson which was on the Fruits of the Holy Spirit.  Isn’t the Holy Spirit wonderful!  I will certainly share your info with the class. (Joanne D.)
  • Love the 3 minute retreats!  My students do too!  They request them bc they don’t often have down time to just be silent with Him. (Tonya C.)
  • This was wonderful! Many many things I have covered with my 8th grade classes. I was talking about social justice last night and I used the Jackie Robinson and Branch Rickey story. (Diane K.)
  • Thanks again for giving us practical ways to spread Jesus’ message to all those we encounter! (Catherine D.)
