Thank you for this. It was my Sunday morning service. The universal message coupled with being from Petersburg and having worked near Howard University when, apparently, he was there added to the relevance to my own experience. A concern is to treat mindfulness with respect even though it may not be at at the depths of meditation that Dr. Bill talks of. It may only be a first step, but as one who it has helped in dealing with anexities, it was, and is, an important element in dealing with my restless mind. This small, quiet talk was so good to hear. Thank you.
Good morning Gracie. I felt just the way you do about Oliver Hill’s story of how much mindfulness and meditation have meant to his life and well-being. I’m glad his story touched you too.
