Celebrating the Sangha and the Can-Do Spirit!
By Rev. Lois Drake
Driving through the streets of Westchester, Illinois, students enjoyed fall colors and incredibly warm weather as they pulled into the Chicago Teaching Center. It was a beautiful setting for the Summit University Class, “Experience the Light Within!”
The members of the teaching center made extraordinary efforts to create the homey, friendly ambiance to welcome newcomers as well as long-time students of the ascended masters. If you haven’t been to the Chicago church, be sure and pay a visit sometime. You won’t be disappointed.
Members worked for days cleaning, cooking, organizing, advertising, and preparing in every way for the event. All the efforts paid off and families came from all around to be part of this class that focuses on the chakras. There was laughter, reflection, discussion, and spiritual work done by those of all ages attending. The youngest person—three months old—was happy in the family room where parents could join everyone in the sanctuary via large screen TVs. These had also been installed in the kitchen for the cooks who prepared soup and sandwiches on Saturday and an amazing buffet for Sunday fellowship lunch.
Simultaneous translations into Spanish were a tremendous asset and were delivered from a new translations booth custom built on the balcony.
Eight guests experienced the teachings of the ascended masters for the first time (or nearly so.) Sixty participants came for both days, as well as small children, pre-teens, teens, and young adults who were with their parents in the fellowship hall.
Everyone expressed the love and light that they felt—especially through the dictations and meditations. In fact, even though the church’s new furnaces, recently installed, did not generate heat, the radiant warmth of the Ascended Masters comforted and cloaked everyone into believing at times that the furnaces must be working, but they were not!
People said they left not only with something to think about, but also with things to do for continuous improvements.
Presenters, Rev. Lois Drake and Justina Torres, were grateful for the opportunity to be part of the program in Chicago. They felt that the messengers and the masters always are the conductors of Summit University and that it is a privilege to be part of it.
Always remembering that Chicago is the heart chakra for America, it was a class to celebrate light on a personal level and beyond.
