In this episode, we explore 1) worshipping and praying, 2) visualizing and prophesying, 3) belief set points, and 4) "acting as if" with f...

Recently I walked into a local Catholic church for a time of prayer on a late afternoon. I pull away and pray in this church from time to time. I'd like to share a surprising insight that came to me as soon as I stepped across the threshold from the lobby into the church. This will probably be novel for you too. We can reframe our life with powerful horizons. -- Brian
