Brief Introduction – : Brief Introduction – For many years parishioners would come to me and inquire, 'Preacher Bob, I take this problem to the altar but I seem to just pick it up and bring it back. What can I do to leave it there?'

In most cases, I now know how to assist them in taking that problem to the alter and leaving it there.
Taking a “Bitter Root” to Jesus: Taking a 'Bitter Root' to Jesus The Lord gave me this pattern in 1993 at Gaston College.

Taking a “Bitter Root” to Jesus: Taking a 'Bitter Root' to Jesus The structural key to this pattern is in the moving of an image from a matrix of hurt, guilt, anger, etc. into the location where you have Jesus.
The 'meanings' of the location where you have the Lord will be meanings of love, forgiveness, total acceptance, etc.
The old Bitter Root will change to the meanings you have given to the codings of your image of Jesus.
Let’s look at the pattern – Page 42
