What Do You Say to Life?

Red Ribbon Week takes place throughout America in October. The observance began in 1985 after a DEA agent was kidnapped and murdered by drug traffickers in Mexico. The purpose of the week is to educate people on the risks of alcohol and drugs, and to encourage healthy, drug-free lives.

A Thought on Prayer

We often wonder why prayer doesn’t work. In The Song of Prayer (supplement to A Course in Miracles) we read, “The secret of true prayer is to forget the things you think you need…” and let them go into God’s hands.

What the World Needs Now

“What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It’s the only thing that there’s just too little of”

These words from Jackie DeShannon’s 1965 hit song seem to be a needed message today. We definitely need an answer to a world in conflict, and A Course in Miracles responds with love — not a love to be given to us but a love to be fostered within us. . .

Is there any hope for peace as we drive the highways of “this world that is not our home?” Here’s a helpful, healing hint you might want to try…
