There is a place in you where this whole world has been forgotten; where no memory of sin and of illusion lingers still. There is a place in you which time has left, and echoes of eternity are heard.
Wisconsin Dells, WI (PRWEB) May 25, 2012
Illuminate Teachers of God from A Course In Miracles International, Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin, began in Wusterwitz, Germany on Thursday evening, their five-day European healing convention, The Advent of A Great Awakening. The event, hosted by Neue Christliche Akademie Endeavor Academy has drawn hundreds of Course In Miracles teachers and students from at least 10 countries, and is scheduled to continue through Monday, May 28, 2012.
Led by Teachers of God, Wolter van Verschuer, Nohra van der Velden, John Gaffney and Mitch O'Connor, the convention is a celebration of the feast of Pentecost on May 27, and a precursor of celebrations slated for International Forgiveness Week and Weekend of Perfect Peace, from September 14 through September 23, 2012.
Speaking on the significance of the Judaeo-Christian Feast of Pentecost (which simultaneously commemorates Moses' receiving of The Law on Mount Sinai, and The Descent of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles, following the Resurrection of Jesus Christ), Nohra van der Velden said, “It is glorious to unite here with all our brothers. This convention is a perfect demonstration of the true meaning of Pentecost. We are all 'with one accord in one place' through forgiveness, receiving the Law of Love, filled with the Holy Spirit and speaking with one Voice.”
“We demonstrate as we are reminded in A Course In Miracles,” continued van der Velden, “that 'there is a place in you where this whole world has been forgotten; where no memory of sin and of illusion lingers still. There is a place in you which time has left, and echoes of eternity are heard. There is a resting place so still no sound except a hymn to Heaven rises up to gladden God the Father and the Son. Where Both abide are They remembered, Both. And where They are is Heaven and is peace.
Nohra van der Velden went on to say, “'What seems eternal all will have an end. The stars will disappear, and night and day will be no more. All things that come and go, the tides, the seasons and the lives of men; all things that change with time and bloom and fade will not return. Where time has set an end is not where the eternal is. God's Son can never change by what men made of him. He will be as he was and as he is, for time appointed not his destiny, nor set the hour of his birth and death. Forgiveness will not change him. Yet time waits upon forgiveness that the things of time may disappear because they have no use.'”
“We are here to let the things of time disappear,” added van der Velden, “That's how forgiveness happens.”
All presentations during the convention will be in the English language, with simultaneous translations in German, Polish, Spanish, Italian and Greek.
