Experienced but Not Seen

by Beverly Hutchinson McNeff

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 a few years back, a new planet in our 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.

I have studied A Course in Miracles for nearly half a century. I can feel that the lessons and understanding found in the text of its life-changing 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. Since 1978, the Center has been encircling students of the Course with the love and support that is the birthplace of 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 publishing our free The Holy Encounter magazine, beaming our weekly livestream on the Course free to over 75% of the world (145 countries), providing healing materials for prisoners, or offering daily prayer joining, our Center has been helping thousands of students, hungry for the Course’s message of forgiveness and transformation.

As someone who receives our weekly e-inspiration, I would like to invite you to become a Holy Helper. It would 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 $20 or more, you can choose from a list of exclusive gifts that include: A Course-inscribed tote bag, water bottle, plaque, and more. You will also receive a 10% discount on purchases from our store.

This is our way of thanking you for becoming a Holy Helper. Our Holy Helpers’ support provides the Center with a reliable source of funding, guaranteeing that 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 follow the links below to indicate your new monthly support (or increase your monthly support) and how you would like to make that possible.

As we near the end of our Holy Helper funding campaign, I want to thank you for your consideration. If you are able, I look forward to welcoming you to our Holy Helper family!

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!
