AFFIRMATION FOR NOVEMBER
Our Father, our God, in my own consciousness let me find happiness in the love of Thee, for the love I bear toward my fellow man. Let my life, my words, my deeds, bring the joy and happiness of the Lord in Jesus to each I meet day by day.
-- Edgar Cayce reading 262-106

NEWS FROM THE OFFICE OF PHILANTHROPY
ECLS Sponsored Wills and Trusts Seminar. Last month, the Edgar Cayce Legacy Society (ECLS) sponsored a wills vs trusts seminar presented by estate-planning attorney Beth Ann Lawson. Hosted by Marianna Theo, A.R.E. Legacy Giving Officer, and Patrick Belisle, Director of Philanthropy, the seminar helped A.R.E. members with their hesitation over which to choose for themselves: a will or living trust. Misunderstanding can often result in individuals doing nothing in terms of estate planning… and this will lead to eventual problems for their loved ones and their preferred charities. Attorney Lawson clearly defined how one’s financial position and family responsibilities determine which of these roads to take. She also informed the group that we should all have a Power of Attorney form executed A.S.A.P. since that’s what is needed while we’re still living. If you would like to know more for your own estate planning or ECLS, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or Marianna@edgarcayce.org at 757-457-7215.
ECLS Newsletter 2019. Last month, members of the Edgar Cayce Legacy Society (ECLS) were mailed a copy of the ECLS newsletter that I think may be useful even to non-ECLS members. Here is the link to the newsletter so you can gain the updated Tax Benefit updates and read the testimonials as well. I hope it’s helpful to you. www.edgarcayce.org/media/13357/oct2019- ecls-newsletter.pdf
If you have included the A.R.E. in your estate plans but haven’t been made an ECLS member, just contact me or email@example.com and we’ll make sure you are included in future mailings and events. Thank you for helping to ensure the Cayce work for future generations. https://www.edgarcayce.org/donate/planned-giving-overview/edgar-cayce-legacy-society/
Gratitude for our Donors. Simply said, we are grateful for all you do to support the Cayce Work. On behalf of all the souls who have found healing, peace, and love via your support of the A.R.E., I’d like to share a moving testimonial of one member’s personal journey from tragedy to grace via the A.R.E. and Cayce readings. This is just one life changed because of your support. You make a difference. https://www.edgarcayce.org/donate/we-are-grateful-to-you/.
If you are interested in being a part of A.R.E.’s beautification and preparation for the next generation of Edgar Cayce fans and spiritual seekers, contact Patrick Belisle, Director of Philanthropy at firstname.lastname@example.org or 757-457-7126.

Outreach Services is moving ahead to realize its goal of Study Group Revitalization. We are in the midst of our annual roll call of all Groups and are working on starting new Groups in every state. The Prison Outreach Program is delighted that Mark Thurston has generously allowed us to reprint his book, How to Interpret Your Dreams, which is being sent to inmates everywhere. Field Volunteers continue to perform magnificently, in terms of starting new Study Groups in their areas and sponsoring HQ programs that introduce the life-affirming concepts in the Edgar Cayce material to newcomers everywhere. Prayer and Meditation Services is sponsoring its third Luminary Prayer Circle (led by members of the Glad Helpers Prayer Group) during the New Year’s Conference. [And speaking of the New Year’s Conference, we’d love to have Study Group members help us ring in the New Year here in Virginia Beach, December 29-31. You can apply for a scholarship to the conference by calling 800-333-4499, ext. 7166.
