This is the opportunity to share with the world how we as warriors have learned forgiveness and love, and share that experience with everyone who wants to see this world in a different way; a world of peace no longer controlled by fear.
Wisconsin Dells, WI (PRWEB) March 06, 2012
For the worldwide forgiveness and peace festival to be held at the Miracles Healing Center in Wisconsin Dells this September, Vietnam war veteran, Senior Minister James Henry Gavigan, of A Course in Miracles International, is appealing to veterans, servicemen, and their families, from all wars, in all time and in all the world, to come for the “Cosmic Reconciliation”, a series of special healing events, including a meeting open to all and featuring guest speakers from several prominent veterans associations, a private “closed” meeting for veterans only, and a grand reconciliation banquet.
Gavigan says, “By addressing my own responsibility for what occurred, I am then able to release my conflict and grievances. This assembly gives you the opportunity to finally speak the truth of your own mind. In that moment, the healing process starts, and we become free of the past and present in this moment of NOW.”
These events are part of the celebrations scheduled to take place in Wisconsin Dells, WI during the 10 days of International Forgiveness Week and Weekend of Perfect Peace, beginning Sept. 14 and running through Sept 23, 2012. Hosted by the Miracles Healing Center of A Course in Miracles International, this event will feature multimedia forums of spiritual healing, art, music, food, 12-Step meetings, and the World Peace Mosaic within a "family festival celebrating the freedom and peace that the healing power of love and forgiveness is bringing to all the world."
Senior Minister Gavigan continued, “At the Miracles Healing Center, we utilize the teachings of Jesus Christ represented in the New Testament gospels and the out-of-time teachings of Jesus called A Course in Miracles. In both, he gives us a clear-cut instruction on how to accept responsibility for the chaos of our own minds and, further, shows us the way out.
“It is my hope that your participation in this miraculous event will trigger the ancient memory of who you truly are, and remind you that you have the right to be happy. Perfect peace and happiness are God’s Will for you.”
Vietnam war veteran Gavigan went on: “I do not know any veteran who has not felt that he was fulfilling an honorable debt rather than making a sacrifice. Everyone who has been in a combat situation has had the sense of standing beside every hero, every warrior, in history. But the horror that you experience through the death and destruction becomes your own death and destruction, and it tears your guts out. We don’t talk about it because we are ‘tough old guys.’
“This is the opportunity to share with the world how we as warriors have learned forgiveness and love, and share that experience with everyone who wants to see this world in a different way; a world of peace no longer controlled by fear.
“Whether or not you believe in God or believe in Jesus does not matter. Following the teachings of “Love your enemy,” “Forgive,” and “Anger is never justified,” you start a process of remembering, remembering you were on the cross with Him--and that you came down from that cross. He resurrected. Now is the time for your resurrection.”
International Forgiveness Week and Weekend of Perfect Peace auspiciously coincide in a ten-day period, with the United Nations International Day of Peace on September 21st forming the cornerstone of the celebration.
