Flashback, or, So Glad We Made It!

The following article was originally written September 29, 2005. This is a revised version.

I was reading a book yesterday as I waited for the bus. The main character, a blonde Georgia peach, had just broken up with her fiancé.

While she was out fundraising, he had been cheating on her with a newly hired co-worker: someone Ms. Georgia Peach considered to be loud, scandalously dressed and improperly made up. Someone who although she hadn’t all the advantages in the world, still spoke her mind and was comfortable with her sexuality. In fact, this woman was someone she had never dared to be.

O … K.

That’s the point where Ms. Georgia Peach got me. That’s the point where we connected. I thought of my best friend in high school, Denise. She didn’t have much in the way of material things, but darn if she didn’t have some smarts, some great dimples and some sex appeal. Whoooooa!

Chapter 1: Celebration of Discipline: Door to Liberation

Just completed a session teaching this class with some awesome students and thought I would share my notes from when I attended the class myself in 2010.



Hello there,
I’ve just started this class in Bible school (for the second time) called Celebration of Discipline.  Sounds all serious and somber, right?  Don’t get scared, I’ll break it down for you:
Merriam Webster.com defines Discipline as:
1: punishment
2: obsolete : instruction
3: a field of study
4: training that corrects, molds, or perfects the mental faculties or moral character
5a: control gained by enforcing obedience or order b: orderly or prescribed conduct or pattern of behavior c: self-control
6: a rule or system of rules governing conduct or activity
