Father, God, in Thy mercy, in Thy love, be Thou with us now.
For we know and we speak of Thy love.
And help us then to put away, for the hour, the cares of this life; that we may know in truth that the Spirit and the Lamb say, “Come.” Let them that hear also say, “Come.” Let all that will, come and drink of the water of life.

-- Edgar Cayce reading 262-113

This is my update for December 2017 to A.R.E. members and friends who are interested in the new and exciting trends occurring within Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. and Atlantic University. A number of exciting things are happening this month! Please share the following with your friends:


With the New Year just around the corner, it's time to start thinking about a new degree or a certificate.

Atlantic University students learn new and unique ways of thinking, as well as fresh and creative ways of being a good citizen on this planet. In each program, students have the opportunity to explore, grow, and interact with a diverse group of learners, who are also on the same course of discovery. You can also take courses for lifelong learning apart from any degree or certificate program.
Applications are due in December for the January 2018 semester. | 800.428.1512 |
