I started reading the book, “A Course in Miracles” a couple of weeks ago.  My church has a circle group.  It was like the Universe was calling out for my participation.  Someone else had mentioned how powerful the book is and recommended it for me.  My inaction did not deter what was meant to be from being.   ...more
