Nov. 5 – All Souls Sunday
The Wisdom of A Course in Miracles

“There is one life, and that I share with God…[Life] has no opposite. There is no death because what God created shares [God’s] life. There is no death because an opposite to God does not exist.”

A Reading from the Epistle to the Ephesians (2.8)
“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God.”

The Wisdom of William Penn
“Death is no more than a turning of us over from time to eternity.”

A Reading from the book of Revelation (21.3-4)
“I heard a loud voice…saying, ‘See, the home of God is among mortals. God will dwell with them as their God; they will be God’s peoples, and God will be with them to wipe every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more; mourning and crying and pain will be no more…’”

Nov. 12
A Reading from the Wisdom of Solomon (6.12)

“Wisdom is radiant and unfading, and she is easily discerned by those who love her, and is found by those who seek her.”

A Reading from the Psalter (70.1, 4, 6)
“Be pleased, O God, to deliver me; O LORD, make haste to help me. Let all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; let those who love your salvation say forever, ‘Great is the LORD!’ You are my helper and my deliverer; O LORD, do not tarry.”

A Reading from the Apostle Paul (1 Thessalonians 4.15-18)
“For this we declare to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will by no means precede those who have died. For the Lord himself, with a cry of command, with the archangel’s call and with the sound of God’s trumpet, will descend from heaven, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up in the clouds together with them to meet the Lord in the air; and so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words.”

Nov. 19
The Wisdom of A Course in Miracles

“Christ’s Second Coming…is merely the correction of mistakes, and the return of sanity. It is a part of the condition that restores the never lost, and re-establishes what is forever and forever true. It is the invitation to God’s Word to take illusion’s place; the willingness to let forgiveness rest upon all things without exception and without reserve. It is the all-inclusive nature of Christ’s Second Coming that permits it to embrace the world and hold you safe within its gentle advent, which encompasses all living things with you. There is no end to the release the Second Coming brings, as God’s creation must be limitless.”

The Wisdom of A.B. Fay
“If I look for the Christ, this moment the second coming will be to me. It is a matter of our own mental attitude. Those who are not looking for the coming forth of the Christ spirit from within our own souls will not see it; it is just as far off as we put it.”

A Reading from the Apostle Paul (1 Thessalonians 5.1-2)
“Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers and sisters, you do not need to have anything written to you. For you yourselves know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.”

Nov. 26 – Reign of Christ Sunday
A Reading from the Psalter (Psalm 100)

“Be joyful in the LORD, all you lands; serve the LORD with gladness and come before the divine presence with a song. Know this: The LORD…made us, and we belong to the Holy One; we are God’s people and the sheep of God’s pasture. Enter God’s gates with thanksgiving; go into God’s courts with praise; give thanks to God and call upon God’s names. For God is good; divine mercy is everlasting. God’s faithfulness endures from age to age.”

A Reading from the Gospel according to Matthew (25.31, 34-36, 40)
“When the [Chosen One] comes in glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on the throne of his glory. The sovereign One will say to those at his right hand, ‘Come, you that are divinely blessed, inherit the realm prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.’ Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’”
