Before I get to the workshop evaluations from the twenty participants in the Great Falls Godwriting™ workshop, I would like to give you my evaluation of the great Great Falls workshop!
I realize I am fickle. Each workshop is the best. In every Godwriting workshop, I fall in love with God all over again and with each new workshop participant every time. I am no longer faithful to the workshop before. I wish workshops could just be perpetual. I could happily spend my life in the middle of one. Someday I would like to have an advanced workshop of all Godwriters so that we could all meet as one workshop. What power and glory that would be.
I realized in this workshop that one of the blessings of our coming together for this common purpose of Godwriting is to experience greater awareness of Oneness -- Oneness with God, and Oneness with each other.
The Great Falls workshop took place in the Gold Room at the Ursuline Centre, quite a spiritual centre indeed. Once a Catholic Academy, the walls are hung with huge paintings from the Bible. I mean huge. There is one amazing painting of Christ seated. As you walk down the hall, his eyes follow you, and it seems that his body turns to you as well.
The atmosphere, in addition to being spiritual, is lenient. I say lenient because the staff doesn't count the minutes that you are in the room. You can come early to set up and stay as long as you like, all for a very modest fee. Larry and Carol Mauer who sponsored the workshop certainly found a great place to have it.
When the people in this workshop wrote their first question to God, I was impressed because each person spontaneously gave thanks to God for all that He has given them. It was beautiful to hear twenty testaments of gratitude to God.
And the Godwriting from this workshop was beautiful. Godwriting always is. And it’s not that we judge it even to say it’s good, great, wonderful etc. It’s Godwriting, what else could it be! Yet each person’s first Godwriting took my breath way. This Godwriting thing really works!
Montana is known for its warmth and friendliness. It’s really true. The people here are so good to each other, and very good to me.
Larry and Carol are taking me on a tour of Montana for several days. The first day we’re going to Helena, Butte, and to Chico Hot Springs which is close to Yellowstone Park. The next day, Yellowstone Park in Wyoming and more wonderful places. I wish you all could come too. As soon as I get back, I’ll post some blog entries with photos.
The night before I leave Montana, Larry and Carol are having a buffalo roast in Heavenletters' honor. Do you begin to see how great the people in Montana are?
And we're not finished yet.
Thank you, Montana!
