A Course in Miracles
A Course in Miracles meets most Mondays from 7 to 8:30 pm to read and discuss the material presented in this book. Visitors are always welcome to this casual and friendly group. To be sure the group is meeting on any specific Monday evening, or if you have questions, please call moderator Sally Jones at 301-861-6374, or email jones8928-at-comcast.net. There is no cost and all are welcome. To view this material online, go to www.miraclecenter.org, click on “services” then click on “ACIM Lookup.” For a general overview, the three-part preface covers “How It Came,” “What It Is” and “What It Says.”
Although A Course in Miracles can be a self-study course, many people find it helpful to read and discuss the material with others. These groups have formed independently and are not sponsored by any central organization. ACIM appeals to people from many walks of life and various religious affiliations.
Each of the three parts of A Course in Miracles has a specific direction:
- The “Text” is designed to present ideas on a theoretical level. As one example, most people perceive the world based on existing thoughts and perceptions. The text explores how this effects our lives.
- The 365 lesson “Workbook”provides a practical daily experience of the ideas presented in the text. Many people experience more happiness as negative or limiting attitudes are transformed.
- The “Manual for Teachers” answers additional questions students may have and further defines terms as it guides one through a new way of looking at all things, with forgiveness, to an attitude of peace and joy.
A Course in Miracles book and many other books based on its teachings can be found in public libraries, book stores and online at www.miraclecenter.org.
