403 Issues of Miracles Monthly in 403 Months!

Dear CMC Friends and Family,
Friday Rev. David (my wonderful office assistant)and I finished putting together Miracles Monthly, September 2020, Volume 34 Issue 7, our 403rd issue in 403 months. I mailed it yesterday, Monday, (Our first issue was March of 1987). What a miracle this is. When I consider all that we have gone through in these 34 plus years and how we still got an issue out every month!!! So much had to healed, so many times, just to get the next issue done. So many times it was "late," sometimes very late, but we never gave up and we always caught up.
My feature article this issue is *Be Not Afraid* which is such a key idea for healing. "The only thing that is required for a healing is a lack of fear. The fearful are not healed and cannot heal." (OrEd.Tx.27.45) What fearful thoughts might occasionally cross your mind: Covid19, wild fires on the West Coast, unhealthy air quality, who might get elected U.S.A. President in November ... ? Let them go and heal. "There is nothing to fear." (OrEd.WkBk.48)

09.06.20 Video "A Celebration of Vocation"

(Click on "Read more..." for larger player)

It's Labor Day weekend 2020. On the level of form the country can celebrate that unemployment has declined. On Friday the Bureau of Labor Statistics announced an August unemployment rate of 8.4. It was 14.7 in April. Many people still have their self worth tied up with their work, labor, or vocation. ACIM calls us all to a true vocation, healing our mind by restoring integration and oneness. Our vocation then involves extending this healing to others. "What better vocation could there be for any part of the Kingdom than to restore it to the perfect integration that can make it whole?" (OrEd.Tx.5.28) Join us Sunday to celebrate true vocation and a new vision for Labor Day.

08.16.20 Video "Be Not Afraid"

(Click on "Read more..." for larger player)

I have noticed that there is lots of fear mongering going on in our culture from all sides. "Monger" means "a person who promotes a specified activity, situation, or feeling, especially one that is undesirable or discreditable." We, as ACIM students, never want to fear monger. We want to spread words of: hope, peace, strength, and bliss! That's why I like the exclamation "WooHoo!!" It sums us all four of those traits. "Make no one fearful, for his guilt is yours." (OrEd.Tx.13.12) Obviously guilt and fear are the same thing. In these challenging times can we stop our guilt and fear mongering and move to "WooHoo"? That is our challenge.
