New Feature on Our Website

We have added a new feature to our website to support you spiritually during these times.  It is called “CHANNEL 1” and can be accessed from the sidebar menu on any page.  The name comes from Virginia Stephenson’s counsel in her classes for us to notice whether we are tuned to “Channel 1,” the voice of Truth, or to “Channel 2,” the voice of the belief in two powers.  If we find ourselves listening to Channel 2, she said, we have to promptly switch to Channel 1.  The CHANNEL 1 website page offers resources to assist you in staying tuned to Channel 1.
Click here to explore CHANNEL 1.

*  Because of the timely nature of the class we heard on March 7, which many will want to hear again, we are making an exception and posting this class today, March 7, instead of waiting until next week.  To listen, click here.

You can also listen to this class by telephone.  Call 1-641-715-3900 and enter 604837#.    

*  We have posted a new question and answer from Joel.  The student asks whether we will lose our individual identity as we return to God.

We Will Be Holding “Presence Meditations” Twice a Day for Two Weeks

Our current study book is The Art of Spiritual Living, and it focuses on applying spiritual principles in everyday life.  Right now, we have a great opportunity to practice the principles because of the highly aggressive mental suggestions that are gripping the world and bringing forth tremendous human fear.  In the face of such human events, Joel sometimes called students to work together to realize Truth and dispel material sense.

In that same spirit, and in the spirit of “two or more gathered together,” we will be offering “Presence Meditations” every day for two weeks. We are calling these “Presence Meditations” because when Joel spoke about world work, he told us to “attain a conscious awareness of God’s presence,” or “the presence of the Christ.”

In these meditations, it is important for us to understand that our attitude and altitude must be that of one doing spiritual healing work as it is taught in The Infinite Way.  We are NOT working to overcome anything, to get some God to do something, or to change the human picture.  Our purpose is to come together to attain a conscious awareness of God’s omnipotent Presence, and LET that Presence express Itself to dispel the clouds of material sense and reveal the perfect harmony that eternally IS.

We will begin this program on Sunday, March 1, and continue through Friday, March 13.  There will be two meditation periods each day—one at 8:00 a.m. Pacific Time and one at 6:00 p.m. Pacific time.  Each meditation period will be for 20 minutes.

We will begin the meditation with a short reading and meditate for 10 minutes.  Then we will read the message a second time, meditate for 10 more minutes, and conclude the meeting.  (Please note that North America will begin Daylight Saving Time on March 8, so if you plan to join us from other countries, please click here for a worldwide time conversion chart for the Presence Meditations.)

On Saturday morning, March 7, we will hold our usual tape group session at 8:00 a.m. Pacific time, and there will not be a separate meditation session.  However, there will be a meditation session on Saturday evening, March 7 at 6:00 p.m. Pacific time.

You can participate in these meditation sessions online or by telephone.
