  2. Why this is neither logical nor helpful.
  3. The hidden belief(s) demonstrated by this mindset.
  4. What you can do to get over this fear!

P.S. If you are ready to create, or expand, the culture in your church or spiritual community to be more inclusive, don’t skip the five videos that are specifically about framing your Stained Glass Spirit Strategy on this site. None of them are longer than 10 minutes. All of them give you the grounding you need to choose your next steps.
