    I hear it said over and over: “Is it just me? Time passes so quickly, days are so busy, I don’t have enough time, where did this month/year go?!” This 4-week course will use the text from John Mark Comer," The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry." We will weekly read 3 or 4 chapters and have a discussion.
