Recent CCC Classes

The Correction of Error
This powerful and provocative section (T-9.III) challenges our need to correct our brother’s errors, saying that even if he is wrong, we should still tell him that he is right. How can we take this section’s message on board without going overboard?

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

Should anyone attempt to teach the meaning of the Course?
Recently, someone reported that guidance from Helen, which was subsequently passed on by Bill, said that “Study groups are fine for discussion as long as everyone is on equal footing but nobody is to attempt to teach [the Course’s] Meaning.” Could this be actual guidance from Jesus? What does the Course suggest on this subject?

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

A Better Way

April/May Issue of A Better Way #140 The article in this issue is one by Greg entitled "From False Guiltlessness to True Guiltlessness: A Commentary on Helen's Concept of 'Healthy Guilt Feelings.'" In our Complete and Annotated Edition of A Course in Miracles (CE), there is a curious line that says, "The concept of healthy guilt feelings has great merit" (T-5.V.6:1). Given the Course's teaching that we are guiltless, how can guilt feelings be healthy? Greg shows that there is in fact a continuum of sorts that runs from a false, ego-based form of "guiltlessness" all the way to the true guiltlessness that the Course regards as salvation. Learning more about this continuum can give us a very practical approach to our own feelings of guilt. Click here to read this month's A Better Way.

Featured Q&As

Should We Forgive the Ego? 
It seems to me that Course students are constantly condemning the ego and fighting against it. This seems to contradict the Course's teaching on forgiveness. Since the Course says we should forgive everyone, shouldn't we forgive the ego as well?  Read more or post a reply»

The Course tells us that communication must be unlimited. Does this mean that we have to tell everyone all of our private thoughts? Is Jesus speaking here of something akin to the Christian idea of confession?  Read more or post a reply»
