Edging God Out

“We are all angels with amnesia,” Dr. William Thetford, co-scribe of A Course in Miracles, once said. And we are! The radiance of our true Self can never change or be tarnished in any way. We are assured, “Your worth is not established by teaching or learning. Your worth is established by God. Nothing you do or think or wish or make is necessary to establish your worth…

Render Unto Caesar

Years back, a group of theologians came together in an attempt to go through the Bible and decide by group consensus what were the actual words of Jesus. Entitled “The Jesus Seminar,” they were to look at the few hundred words attributed to Jesus and determine what did or didn’t seem consistent with his message. As you can imagine, when you get a group of people together to decide on anything it can take years…

A New Focus…on Life

It was years ago, but I remember it just like yesterday. My then five year-old son looked up at me with his big blues eyes and asked, “Why did Jesus have to die?” I was shocked! How could such a sophisticated thought come out of his mouth? And, how would I answer? I asked him where he came up with the question and he said he read it on the cover of Time magazine…

A Resurrection Story

As we approach the Easter season, I want to share with you a story of my resurrection: My experience of life in what we call death. February 19th of this year marked twenty-one years since my mother made her transition from this worldly experience to the next. As I remembered her life and all that she imparted to me, there was no sadness. I feel her all around me, and though I do shed a few tears now and then, they are really tears of joy for what she taught me and continues to teach me…

Spring Has Sprung

Even though Spring does not officially begin until the 20th of March, in our part of the world, Spring has already sprung! I see bunnies peppering the hills, butterflies floating from flower to flower, and birds pulling worms from the ground. Everything seems so filled with renewal. I am especially impressed when I see buds of green popping out of the seeming “sticks” in my garden. I do not have a “green thumb,” so when the bareness of winter in my garden gives way to actual growth, I am always amazed. And so it is with God. …

Time’s Purpose

Over the holidays, our family went to Europe. My husband, Paul, had been planning this trip for a few years as a way to celebrate our thirtieth wedding anniversary and our son Jeff’s graduation from high school. Paul did a fantastic job, and it was a memorable experience for all of us. Rest assured, I am not going to give you a travel log of our trip. After all, what is more boring than looking at people’s family photos, or as it is called these days: Facebook? 🙂 What I do want to do, however, is use an experience from our trip to highlight some Course ideas…

MDC History Part II

In retrospect, I don’t know whether we ever asked the question “What now?” In those early years, everything happened so quickly. Our own personal growth was such an exciting adventure. We were discovering new insights with every turn of a page of the Course. Our study group was also growing, and we were learning much about how to relate this revolutionary material to others (and, of course, ourselves)…
