In the scientific community, it’s a big deal when new planets are discovered. You may have recently heard about seven new, earth-like planets way, way out in space that were located by one of NASA’s telescopes. But, did you know that last year a new planet in our own solar system was discovered only by its effects? That’s right! Scientists know the planet is there by its effects, even though they can’t see it. Experienced, but not seen – it sounds sort of like the power of love. We can’t measure love under a microscope or draw a picture of it, but we can feel its effects, and we know it is there.
As I enter my 40th year of studying A Course in Miracles, I realize my Course lessons and the understanding of its principles are making a difference. Even though things may still look the same, the effects in my life (and hence in my world) are nothing short of miraculous. I see transformations all around, and I hope you do, too.
The Course and our Center can be like that planet: unseen, yet still felt. For the past thirty-nine years, the Center has been encircling students of the Course with the love and support that are the birthplace for miracles. Even when you don’t think about us, we are here to support you.
This life-affirming outreach, however, would not be possible without our Holy Helpers, our core group of donors. Whether it’s helping someone find a Course study group in sixty-five countries, providing healing materials for prisoners, or offering prayerful joining, our Center has been helping thousands of students, hungry for the Course’s message of forgiveness and transformation.
I would like to invite you, as one of the readers of The Holy Encounter, to become a Holy Helper. It would truly be an honor to have you join our inner circle of supporters whose presence is felt but perhaps not always seen!
When you become a Holy Helper with your monthly tax-deductible donation of $15 or more, we’ll welcome you with an exclusive gift…
… A lovely brass keychain engraved with this powerful reminder from the Course: “Forgiveness is the key to happiness.” We hope that each time you use it you will be reminded of the joy that awaits you when you make the choice to allow forgiveness to enter your mind. This unique keychain is now ONLY being made available to Holy Helpers!
… when you join our Holy Helper family, you will receive a 10% discount on purchases from our bookstore and free shipping for orders over $45.00.
All of this is our way of thanking you for becoming a Holy Helper. Our Holy Helpers’ support provides the Center with a source of funding that can be relied upon to guarantee the Center and its valuable services will be here when you or others need them.
Please take a moment to prayerfully consider becoming a Holy Helper. You may use the enclosed form to indicate your new monthly support (or increase your monthly support) and how you would like to make that possible.
Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to welcoming you to our Holy Helper family!
Beverly Hutchinson McNeff
P.S. If you are unable to commit to becoming a Holy Helper at this time, please consider a one-time, tax-deductible gift in support of our work. Bless you!
