Permission to Speak Freely (#3): Creating Space for Love to Grow (Nancy Wilson) :: January 20-21, 2007. Summary: We receive permission to speak freely in the secret chambers of prayer; there we learn to grant others the same permission; thus we are to become a community that together learns to "speak the truth in love" and brings that freedom into the world. "Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work." (Eph. 4: 11-16)

Permission to Speak Freely: The Art of Listening (Ken Wilson) :: January 13-14 2007. Summary: We receive permission to speak freely in the secret chambers of prayer; there we learn to grant others the same permission; thus we become a community that learns to "speak the truth in love" and brings that freedom into the world.

Permission to Speak Freely: In the Secret Chamber of Prayer (Ken Wilson) :: January 6-7 2007. Summary: We receive permission to speak freely in the secret chambers of prayer and there we learn to grant others the same permission. Thus we are to become a community that together learns to "speak the truth in love." Another approach: What if it's permission received, first from God for use with God in the prayer chamber, where we learn to grant this permission to others. Only then can we become the kind of community where the rule of love prevails as we learn to "speak the truth in love," and bring that freedom ito all we do.
