  • Where I mentioned where the theme was inspired from is the class I am presently taking with the amazing Rev. Michael Beckwith from Agape revmesp07.jpg

(another note: churning comes from a teaching from Dr. Douglas Brooks another one of my great teachers. Churning comes from the stories of Shiva Nataraja)
