From the series "Dealing With Your Past" as part of Practicing The Way. We all inherited patterns from our family of origin and culture. Some of those patterns are unhealthy and out of line with the way of Jesus, and we need to break them in order to move forward. But others are a generational blessing that we need to celebrate. One of the key tasks of our apprenticeship to Jesus is to identify the ways in which our family line is blessed, and pass that blessing on to the next generation.
