Coffee and cake
I wish I could be part of your group. There is no one in my neighborhood that had the depth of knowledge as you have or opens her home to this kind of study. Listening is great, but discussing it together would be wonderful.

Best part for me
was that you mentioned how G-d asks us for our perspective. I've been walking humbly with G-d and figured that it was a one way conversation. That was good enough, just having the pipeline asking " Why this or why that Hakodesh Borachu ? " Or making comments to Him. " I thought that it was all rhetorical. Now i had better do some listening. You see, i was given the distinct impression that G-d lknows all. Maybe he does, but he still wants to hear from our perspective. He wants to know what we see. Even if He knows what we see, it still provides a method for us to see ourselves, to see what G-d and His Toarh reveal in us, and to us. This is not an exercise in navel gazing. It is an exercise to do our best. Prayer is one such time and place to have this chat. For example, we pray with our mind on Hashem. Sometimes were are remiss in this. Most times we probably are not remiss.
Thanks for this important perspective.

A Call to the Infinite
I can see from this study that Hashem, Blessed be His Name, when we call upon HIs Name, no matter in what situation, or behavior, knowing our past and our future, He takes care of us at that moment. Like saying, I know how you will respond in the future too, but this moment is what is important. He gives us a chance, once more, in His Infinite Mercy, to change our behavior. Like He said to Cain, "when sin comes crouching at your door you can controll it." He, Blessed be His Name, is always willing to help us in that process.
