This chapter analyzes how roles shifted, as first Kenneth Wapnick and then Judith Skutch were integrated into the Course's inner circle. It argues that Bill, Ken, and Judy saw all the sides of Helen—her “ordinary self” and higher God-identified self—but connected to them in different ways. Bill and Helen's relationship was painfully complex and enmeshed. Ken's and Judy's relationships with Helen, while still complicated, were less complex and much less volatile. All four of them were deeply committed to the Course and to the Voice-led process of inner direction. When Helen and Bill were focused on the Course, their relationship was at its most harmonious, and differences in perspective between the foursome were relatively subtle.
