AFFIRMATION FOR DECEMBER

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 they that hear also say, “Come.” Let all that will, come and drink of the water of life .

-- Edgar Cayce reading 262-113

ATLANTIC UNIVERSITY – ONLINE DREAM INTERPRETATION CLASS!

Announcing Dream Interpretation Teacher Training: 12-Week Online Course.  The purpose of the Dream Interpretation course is to deepen your appreciation for the role played by dreams in personal growth and transformation. It provides you with the skills you need to understand your dreams better and, more significantly, prepares you to help others understand their own dreams. It examines the important role waking life plays in the dream world and the role of personal responsibility and ethics in working with the dreams of others. Course requirements include a practicum. This course will not provide the student with the background to offer psychotherapy or other therapeutic counseling, which requires special training and state licensure.  Dream Interpretation Teacher Training begins on January 6, 2020.

NATIONAL OUTREACH 

The Renaissance of Study Groups Continues –A Two-Pronged Plan to Train the Trainers – Our Field Volunteers – and Reenergize A.R.E. Study as Laboratories for Measuring our Inner Growth in an Inclusive, Safe and Supportive Environment – (the Work Readings directed: “…first to the individual, then to the groups, classes and masses…” – and support A.R.E.’s best-loved Community Service Projects – the Prison Outreach Program, now in its 47th year, and the Glad Helpers Prayer Healing Group.

In 2020, National Outreach will continue its focus on helping to begin Study Groups around the world and will launch an effort to create Youth Groups, beginning with our own A.R.E. Camp staff and counselors and a HQ-sponsored Group for the children of staff members, volunteers and neighbors. We are in the process of obtaining permission to reprint, “Beginning the Search for God, Edgar Cayce’s Approach,” (a young person’s version of the original “A Search for God,”) written by two longtime study group members from Texas. We plan to distribute copies of this clear and helpful material into the libraries of every juvenile facility and youth drug rehab program in our country. We also plan to develop “A Child’s Search for God,” for younger children.

And on the other end of the spectrum, we will re-initiate our outreach in senior communities and assisted living facilities to begin Study groups, using the “A Search for God” material and reassuring readings that address end-of-life concerns. Two senior groups, begun at Westminster Canterbury, a continuing care facility, and First Colonial Inn, a senior community continue to meet, and on January 7th, we will begin a meditation-prayer group, based on “A Search for God,” at “Overture 62,” a third senior community in Virginia Beach. We invite your prayers for these and all of our efforts.

Wishing each of you and your families a Blessed Holiday season!
