Episode 108: Edward C. Reib

[01:58:08]  September 17th, 2021

We open with BT reciting Chapter 5 verses 10 through 17 of his dad's book for the segment TRANSFORMATIONS and Footnotes. Then, VH Frater RC invited VH Frater BT (AKA Edward C.

As it is said, we are made in the image of the Creator(s). It follows, then, that we also are creators by nature, provided we have not cluttered our minds with too much junk, and not enough inner-work and landscaping.
