AFFIRMATION FOR JANUARY
In seeking to magnify Thy Name, Thy Glory, through that Thou dost make manifest in me, O Lord, be Thou the Guide, and – day by day, as the opportunity is given – let my hands, my mind, my body do that Thou wouldst have me do as Thine own in the earth; for as I manifest may Thy glory become known to those though the love, the promises Thou has made in Thy Son.”
-- Edgar Cayce reading 262-49
This is my update for January 2021 to 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:

WELCOME JOSEPH TAYLOR – LEGACY GIVING ADVISOR
Please join me in welcoming longtime A.R.E. member, former trustee, and fundraising professional Joseph Taylor to our Office of Philanthropy in his role as Legacy Giving Advisor. If you are considering any kind of estate planning or legacy gifts, Joseph is the individual with whom you want to speak. He has raised money for the University of Virginia’s Miller Center, James Madison’s Montpelier, and Emory & Henry College from which he retired in 2019.
“Edgar Cayce is the only person who could bring me out of retirement,” says Joseph. “I have been a student of esoteric and spiritual subjects since my youth, but it has been Edgar Cayce and the ideas he puts forth in the readings that have always stayed with me. I am honored that Pat (Belisle) called on me to be of service in this way. I look forward to getting to know my fellow soul-group members – you! – even more deeply.”
Legacy gifts play an extremely important role in the A.R.E.’s financial health, so when you’re ready to help, please contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org or 757-457-7215. Our Edgar Cayce Legacy Society currently has 340 people in it; you can join their ranks. Joseph joined our staff on January 11. Welcome, Joseph!
