What is the Holy Spirit?
Course students are perennially confused about the Holy Spirit. Is He a real being or just our own right minds? What is His relationship with God? How separate and distinct is He from God? What exactly is His role? Why do we need Him and how do we call on Him? All of these issues will be cleared up so completely that you will never be confused about the Holy Spirit again. Well, that’s the hope.

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

The term “self-study” is perhaps the most widespread description of the Course there is. But is it really a self-study course? In this class, Greg Mackie will go over ten pieces of evidence for the idea that Jesus expected students to be guided through the Course by personal teachers or mentors. This is the first in a series of classes designed to lead up to a training for teachers of pupils. All teacher members are welcome to attend. Those who would like to be part of the training are strongly encouraged to attend (or listen to the recording).

A Better Way

June/July Issue of A Better Way #129 This month's article, which has been months in the works, is a joint one by both Greg and Robert. Titled "We Have the Answer: Jesus' Vision of a Better World and How We Can Achieve It," the article is about a single very important passage in the original dictation of A Course in Miracles. Robert and Greg believe this passage is a reference to a speech by an American president as he set forth his vision of a better world and how to achieve it. Therefore, in the way that Jesus agrees and disagrees with this president, we can see what his own views are on this vital topic. It's a long article, but for all those Course students who are concerned about the world as a whole, we hope it will prove clarifying. Click here to read this month's A Better Way.

Who Carries Out the Last Judgment?

Should we regard hurtful and deceitful acts as good because good can come out of them? 
It is a common tendency, especially in the spiritual arena, to justify hurtful or unethical behavior by pointing to the good that can come out of that behavior. What does the Course say about this? Does hurtful behavior become good simply because good may come out of it?  Read more or post a reply»
