AFFIRMATION FOR FEBRUARY - “DAY AND NIGHT”

In Thy mercies, O God, wilt Thou be the guide in the study of the manifestations of Thy love, even as in “Day unto day uttereth speech and night unto night sheweth knowledge.” So may the activities of my life as a representative of Thy love be a manifestation in the earth.

-- ECRL  262-54

This is my update for A.R.E. members and friends who are interested in the new and exciting trends occurring within Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E., Atlantic University, the Cayce/Reilly School of Massage, and the Edgar Cayce Foundation. A number of exciting things are happening! Please share the following with your friends:

DON’T FORGET TO LOCK IN YOUR CURRENT MEMBERSHIP PRICE

In August 2020, after many years of holding that cost steady the price of membership increased to $90 per year or $8.25 per month. As a current member of the A.R.E., you can grandfather your membership rate at $59 for the next three years. You can choose to automatically be charged $59 annually for the next three years, or if you prefer you can take advantage of the new $8.25 monthly payment option. To renew your membership, sign up online at EdgarCayce.org/Renew, or call 800-333-4499 (U.S. or Canada) or 757-428-3588, ext. 0, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST.

A SEARCH FOR GOD – ZOOM GROUPS SOAR!

Since the pandemic has largely prevented us from meeting in person, we have taken to the internet! Congratulations to everyone now hosting or attending an A.R.E. Study Group online! We are getting so much positive feedback from newcomers finding their way to you and experiencing the material for the first time. They (and we) are so grateful for your efforts welcoming these newcomers!

With the increased interest we need your help. Would you please take a moment to help us help those who want to attend an “A Search for God” Group by emailing studygroups@edgarcayce.org, or Judith.stevens@edgarcayce.org or Karen.boldt@edgarcayce.org just to let us know the DAY and TIME you are meeting (please include your time zone). That will enable us to more accurately match study group inquirers schedules with yours. Even If your group is not currently accepting new members, let us know. We want to hear from you!

New Supplemental Material Coming – the next offering in the “Edgar Cayce On…” series: A Search for God: The Source Materials, covers Book I & II chapters, weaves readings, discussion of subject matter with suggested disciplines for each chapter. Some of the material is currently being featured in once a month “Membership Mondays.” Most recently, Lesson 10, “The Cross and the Crown” was featured. 

PRISON PROGRAM NEWS

Prison Outreach has a large Spanish speaking population of inmates in need of mentoring.

A.R.E. and FreeWill Together… an Immediate Hit!

On the heels of A.R.E.’s new partnership with FreeWill, a leading online no-cost will-creation service, nearly 2,000 of you have already visited EdgarCayce.org/FreeWillARE to see what it’s about, and to create your very own, legally valid wills. Members are mentioning the ease of using the service as well as the peace of mind that comes from knowing that their estate affairs will be handled as directed. Remarkably, over 40 members have shared the news that they have made provision in their wills for ensuring the Cayce legacy. Thank you! We are beyond grateful to these friends for whom the Cayce Work obviously means so much. They will now join the other 350 people in the Edgar Cayce Legacy Society.

If you include A.R.E., Edgar Cayce Foundation, or Atlantic University in your estate plans, you too are eligible for membership in the Edgar Cayce Legacy Society. For more information, contact Joseph Taylor, A.R.E.’s Legacy Giving Advisor at joseph.taylor@EdgarCayce.org or 757-457-7215.
