Reflection: Mike Reis led us in the opening prayer, “Each of the Nine Enneargram types has a different trap, a different ‘sin’ that keeps us from living out our True Self, which is love. Paraphrased from Corinthians 13: 1-3. If Iive my life to perfection, doing what is right and good on behalf of others, but act with compulsion and without love, than I am nothing at all…”
