ACIM’s Supplement “The Song of Prayer: Prayer, Forgiveness, Healing” is the topic of a four week series of consecutive RMMC Sunday Gatherings that runs from August 20, 2017 through September 10, 2017. The series will focus on this supplement to A Course in Miracles.
“Soon after the Course itself was originally published, this pamphlet was dictated by Jesus to help explain and correct the errors that Course students were already making. Many, if not most, students believed forgiveness and prayer were about bodies and bodies’ behavior. They had missed the major point that forgiveness was in the mind and took place at that level of experience. Whatever was happening at the level of form in the world was simply a doorway back to the real issue in the mind (not the body’s brain), of seeming separation from our Father, our Source.”
ACIM Workbook Lessons # 79–80 specifically point out this understanding of the Course’s forgiveness. Jesus repeats it there and throughout the entire ACIM … There is only one problem (belief in separation in the mind), and only one solution (Atonement, or letting go of that belief). The Song of Prayer came along to reiterate and emphasize those same ideas in its three brief sections on Prayer, Forgiveness, and Healing. It describes what each are, and as importantly what they are not.
At the end of summer 2017 on four consecutive Sunday Gatherings, we will go over the Song of Prayer in its entirety and probe its wonderful insights and practical application of the Atonement principle in prayer, forgiveness and healing of the mind. Then we will see how that process is reflected in our daily experience in the world.
All are welcome, both beginning and ongoing students. The entire series is recommended for a comprehensive look at this amazing pamphlet, but each individual Sunday will have something insightful and helpful for all.
