Gifts E1 – Where We Find Ourselves (INTRODUCTION)

This episode serves as introduction to the both the series and the book, "Gift's of the Dark Wood" and how the two pieces of media relate to each other. Author, Eric Elnes, along with Producer, Scott Griessel, provide a lively discussion that invites us to explore the secrets hidden within that mystical place in our soul where even our darkest moments can be viewed as a gift. Unlike future episodes, this one does not contain discussion questions, a small group leader may choose to view this on there own, or use it as a point of entry for their group.
