World Work Recordings

Joel gave several beautiful classes on world work and topics related to world work.  Since Joel’s recordings are still under copy protection, we have obtained permission to post some of these recordings in their entirety for your online or telephone listening.  Each recording will be available for one month from the time of posting for listening at any time.  There is a list of previously posted recordings at the bottom of this page.  

To hear the recording by telephone, call 1-641-715-3900, and enter the extension number 828754, followed by the pound sign (#).  After you enter the extension number, the introduction to the recording will begin, followed by the recording itself.  The telephone number and the extension number will always be the same, even as we change the recording each month.  Depending on your telephone calling plan, the call may or may not incur a charge, so it is a good idea to check whether your plan covers calls to the 641 area code.  Even if you usually participate in the tape group by computer, the telephone option is convenient when you would like to listen to the recording but for some reason do not have access to your computer.

Joel’s 1963 New Year’s message is also a wonderful lesson on world work, so it is an ideal choice for January.  In this inspiring class, Joel teaches that our “Happy New Year” wishes must address all of mankind, the children of God everywhere.  He goes on to say that we must have this attitude not only during the New Year season, but every day throughout the year.  Every day, we must breathe out to the world, “MY peace I give unto thee, the Christ-peace.”

Joel tells us that blessing the world is our individual responsibility, and that we do this through our realization of the Christ.  Every day, we must practice forgiveness, and we must open our consciousness to invite all mankind into universal, divine brotherhood and spiritual sonship.  He says that the apparent discords of the times are actually indicators that human consciousness is breaking up, preparing for the transition to spiritual consciousness.  Despite appearances, we are witnessing the activity of the Christ in human consciousness, and this activity of the Christ is brought about by individual realization of the Christ, which of course, is the essence of world work.

Joel says that we prepare ourselves for this realization of the Christ in us by our study and spiritual practices.  These purify our consciousness so that the Christ may be awakened in us.  But he also emphasizes that the Christ is released into this world through you only when you come to the actual experience of feeling the Presence within. Then the Christ is alive and active in you and can be a blessing to the world.

Joel encourages us to make every day of the year a “New Year,” and through the recognition of the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man, be the instruments through which God’s Grace reaches human consciousness every day.
