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.

Through Fear to Love
Through Fear to Love
 A Course in Miracles teaches that we are afraid to look within because we think we would find a shabby, ugly self at the core of our being. This booklet shows how we can look squarely at this shabby self-image and then look beyond it to see the glorious, loving self we really are. With God's help, we can pass through fear to love.
