Let all things be exactly as they are.


Those who believe that peace can be defended, and that attack is justified on its behalf, cannot perceive it lies within them. (T-23.III.5:1)

Recent CCC Classes

“Atonement” is one of the most significant terms in the Course, but what does it actually mean and how can it become personally meaningful to us?

Note, you must be a CCC member in order to listen to these classes.

The Holy Spirit
As we continue to going through the basics, our next class will be on the Holy Spirit, one of the central characters in the Course, yet also a nexus of endless confusion, even among experienced students and teachers. We will look at what the Holy Spirit is and is not. And we will look at His role and how we should (and should not) relate to Him.

Note, you must be a CCC Teacher in order to listen to these classes.

A Better Way

December/January Issue of A Better Way #137 This month's article is one by Greg entitled "Miracles Depend on Timing: Trusting in the Process of Positive Change." Jesus once told Helen that "miracles depend on timing," and that their effectiveness depends on a "three-way readiness": Jesus' readiness, the miracle worker's readiness, and the miracle receiver's readiness. In this article, Greg expands on this idea and shows how it can help us become more trusting, confident, and patient with the process as we extend miracles of love to others.
