The Thought Adjuster—Our Divine Heritage

By Guy Perron

In the third and final installment of this series, we will deepen our experiential understanding of our divine gifts, our Thought Adjuster and our personality, coming together in the creation of our soul. In the first period, we will focus on the soul, this new reality that we co-create in our inner life with our beloved indweller. The content of Paper 111 will be of great use in our individual and collective effort to find ways to become better partners with God in this human-divine creative process. In period 2, we will focus our effort on discovering this other amazing divine gift from our Father, our personality, wisely utilizing the content of Paper 112. We will explore ways on how we can realize our own personality and, in the process, become more personal and more real.

Exploring the Mind of Young Adult Jesus

By Michael Zehr

This course examines how Jesus lived his life as a maturing young adult, from his graduation from synagogue school until he departed for Rome. Jesus was forced to make many decisions regarding his education, career, the financial support of his family, his social standing in the community, prestigious offers of employment, and even a romantic interest. Together we will study those momentous decisions and observe how they impacted his later public ministry. We will also explore ways to apply his decision-making methods in our own personal lives.
