"There is no choice in this because only you can be the foundation of God's church. A church is where an altar is, and the presence of the altar is what makes it a church. Any church which does not inspire love has a hidden altar which is not serving the purpose for which God intended it. I must found His church on you because you who accept me as a model are literally my disciples." (OrEd.Tx.6.12)
Judy became the very public face of A Course in Miracles in the late ‘70s. She personally introduced it to thousands of people in events around the country. She told a compelling story of how ACIM had been scribed by Helen with connection and support from Bill, how miraculously it came to Helen word for word just as it was printed, and how the whole copying, distributing, and then publishing of it was one miracle after another. She told how she at first had to “xerox” copy after copy to give to people who were interested and how there was no way she could keep up with the demand for early copies. She talked about how the money to professionally publish was miraculously received. The story seemed almost too good to be true.
I recently had this "oh really" experience. About a week ago, I learned about the transition of a very dear friend of mine, Denise Peters. I had known Denise since 1989. She was a friend of mine who I met through work. I was a new teacher and she was an English teacher at my school. We became fast friends because we shared a common love of Greek history and mythology. She was this amazing, amazing teacher. It's hard for me to imagine that she's actually gone. What is interesting when I got the news that she had transitioned or passed, I heard her voice. I heard her talk. Denise was a talker. I really felt like that was such a gift from the Holy Spirit. There is a great deal of love and gratitude that I have for her that I will always hold in my heart.
The ordination program is really amazing because A Course in Miracles is a spiritual discipline, and in order to get the benefits you have to do the work. I feel like the ordination program has given me the foundation to become a Teacher of God, a miracle worker and a healer. There is a small cost for these classes, but it's a small price to pay for all the benefits. A Course in Miracles says that when we study the Course "mighty companions" will go with us on the way. So the ordination program is a great way to get support from "mighty companions".
I thought “Huh?” I had never considered that. As a child growing up the one thing I wanted to do was to become a priest. (laughter) They told me I couldn’t. You know how that goes. Then the nuns were showing me their rules. They were telling me that you can never go bare foot. I was thinking, “I don’t know if that’s going to work. That seems awfully extreme. In summer and everything, I have to wear those boots?”
