I hope your use of the reflection is going well.  The last collection really shows we have a very diverse group that should bring a lot of perspective to our discussions

Along the lines of question 2 in the reflection:

Page 1 in Chapter 1 in the book talks about the first half of life trying to find the answers to the first  essential questions:

  • What makes me significant?
  • How can I support myself?
  • Who will go with me?

Think about: (1) where you grew up, (2) the presence or absence of religion, (3) your real job(s). How do you think these areas have influenced the answers to those first essential questions?

A little deep, I know,  but you can reply all or just to me and I will compile the responses.
