AFFIRMATION FOR SEPTEMBER
Our Father who art in heaven, may Thy kingdom come in earth through Thy presence in me, that the light of Thy word may shine unto those that I meet day by day. May Thy presence in my brother be such that I may glorify Thee. May I so conduct my own life that others may know Thy presence abides with me, and thus glorify Thee.
-- Edgar Cayce reading 262-27

JOIN THE A SEARCH FOR GOD PROGRAM
For countless individuals, the A Search for God (ASFG) material is at the heart of the Edgar Cayce information. Regardless of your religious or spiritual experiences, the ASFG material has proven instrumental to individuals around
the world who want to transform their lives. In addition to a new member benefit based on this material called “the Enlightenment Series,” consider joining a Study Group near you. For more information visit EdgarCayce.org/studygroups.
Your latest Enlightenment Series lesson is up and available in the member-only section of our website. This year’s lessons have been taken from Kevin Todeschi's book Edgar Cayce’s Twelve Lessons in Personal Spirituality with additional video lessons offered. Next year’s monthly lessons will be based on the Cayce topic of “Discovering Your Soul’s Purpose.”
EDGAR CAYCE FOUNDATION
Big things are happening in the Edgar Cayce Foundation! Our archivist, Jessica Newell, is making certain that the Cayce material is properly preserved:
- A new fire suppression system was installed in the vault last month! The new system can put out a fire in less than 10 seconds without damaging any of the archival materials; and it’s safe for human contact, too. This is a huge step toward preserving these historic records for generations to come.
- A new climate control system was installed in the archive, as well! This system controls both the temperature and humidity to make sure all of papers, photos, and a/v media have the best chance at an extended life.
These improvements are possible only through your donations to the E.C.F. Davis Fund over the past couple of years! Thank you! We are still raising money for a Spacesaver shelving system in E.C.F. If you are interested in seeing how you can help, please contact Patrick Belisle at firstname.lastname@example.org or 757-457-7126.
NEW FROM A.R.E. CATALOG
Edgar Cayce on the Dead Sea Scrolls – More than 11 years before the Dead Sea Scrolls were found in 1947, Cayce’s readings described a sect of Judaism about which scholars knew little. He referred to this group as the Essenes. Cayce gave a great deal of information about their work and their lives. In one reading, Cayce was asked to explain the term Essene, “(Q) What is the correct meaning of the term “Essene”? The answer was given simply as “(A) Expectancy.” Glenn Kittler’s book about these Cayce readings, which was originally edited by Hugh Lynn Cayce, is now back in print and available for purchase!
Edgar Cayce’s Famous “Black Book” – Imagine being able to ask the sleeping Edgar a question on almost any topic? Thumbing through his “famous black book” is like stepping back into Cayce’s time to gain wisdom straight from the source of universal consciousness that he was known to access. Popular in the 1960s as an “Individual Reference File,” it was made famous as the “black book” in Jess Stearn’s bestselling biography, The Sleeping Prophet, and is now back in print and available for purchase! Order your copies at ARECatalog.com.

LIFT UP YOUR FELLOW SEEKERS
The A.R.E. and the Cayce material have been there for you, lifting you up in life when you needed it most. Right? Now the A.R.E. and your fellow members need your help being lifted up. We need to replace our 45-year-old Visitor Center elevator ($80,000) that often gets stuck these days.
We also need your support of A.R.E.’s uplifting mission (via our Source Fund) which supplies funds to all the programs you love. Will you help uplift the A.R.E.? If yes, your donation will be split 50/50 between The Source Fund and the Visitor Center Renovations to replace our aged elevator.
And, one of our long-time, committed A.R.E. members has been lifted up by this work so much that he has just agreed to donate $40,000 toward this project IF we can raise the other $40,000. Will you pitch in? Make your donation before September 22, and we’ll send you a copy of Harmon Bro’s A Seer Out of Season, (SIGNED by June Bro if you can give $1,000 or more; unsigned if you donate $240 or more outright or via our Good Karma Club with a gift - $20 or more each month). Donate today. Thank you!
