El Morya's Garden
Celebrating the Sangha and the Can-Do Spirit!
By Pamela Margolis
It all began after our local Harvest Class 2015 held in Johannesburg, South Africa. The title of our conference was “From the Darkness to the Light,” the same name as late Reverend Paul Kwame Kyei’s book in which he shares his personal encounter with darkness. Over the two days we listened to some of the material released at the 1972 and 1976 conferences held by the Messengers in Ghana and given then in preparation of the first steps to be taken to free Africa from the darkness and her return to the Light and Freedom once known on the continent.
Realising the importance of the work to be done in the spirit of community, two cellular phone “What’s App” groups were initiated – “The Afra Call Centre” and “The Chat Room.”
The call centre sends out a call which is repeated hourly around the cosmic clock. The first message at 8h00 is the call in its entirety and thereafter on the hour, a reminder is sent to make the call.
Example of 9h00 Reminder:
2 of 12
The chat room is the forum used for general communications on service details, headline news pertaining to the call being sent out, birthday greetings, our local Minister sharing aspects of the Masters’ teachings in response to enquiries, questions and answers. We have also connected with chelas in Ghana and Botswana and from this initiative other groups have been formed.
It is exciting to be part of a team working around the clock to keep the vigil for our country as hourly cell-phone-messages go out. It is not always possible to send out calls on a daily basis, but when we do we can feel the power of the teamwork gathering momentum. When nothing urgent is happening on a particular day, short hourly calls work well. An hourly call for the intercession for the descent of Cosmic Christs is something we use regularly in our call centre and decree services:
In the name of my Mighty I AM Presence and Holy Christ Self, I AM my brother’s keeper and my sister’s keeper. I make up the difference. I invoke the Light. I call to the Cosmic Christs to descend into the temples of those individuals who have long ago lost their potential for Christhood. I invoke a mighty intercession for the descent of Cosmic Christs that they might enter the arena of the government and the economy to overshadow those who simply are not equal to their times. – El Morya 1-1-93, Pearl of Wisdom Vol. 36 No. 5, p.59.
Witnesses from some of our participating members:
Amitha: “Thank you for the great What’s App initiative for the calls you have introduced in our neck of the woods. The beauty of it is that the requests go out with speed and without undue fuss. Those of our KOF Fraternity who are available to participate just get on with it. This keeps us in touch and strengthens our community; not to mention the much needed and urgent infusion of Christ Light into our country’s crumbling economy, education institutions, political and social arenas, amongst others. This platform is proving to be an invaluable, instantaneous communication tool. I’m grateful for it and highly recommend it.”
Angela: “I think it is a great idea and we should definitely encourage other groups. It brings community together in a positive way and helps us get to know one another. It’s also time to make calls as soon as news comes out – which is most effective in combating the problem before it hits the streets, so to speak. It makes me feel I’m contributing to the cause of the Masters especially when not able to come to every service.”
Emmanuel: “I think it is a great idea The Ghana Church has created a similar platform for the dissemination of the Masters’ teachings. We basically copied the RSA example.”
James: “I think it’s an excellent effort to get members involved in regular calls. Some are very enthusiastic and it gives practice in the very nature of the call……”.
Marina: “I actually think it’s fantastic because it actually keeps you in contact and alert to make the calls continuously. I think it’s fantastic, but we should do it every day.”
It is a sacred labor – expanding the heart of our community.
That is a GREAT idea! All groups can get inspired for the similar action.WithGod speed, Onward!
Hi Mira. The beautiful picture that has been added to this witness has a story behind it. The first European to reach the Cape was the Portuguese explorer Bartholomew Dias on 12th March, 1488. He named it The Cape of Storms and was later renamed by John 11 of Portugal as the Cape of Good Hope because of the great optimism engendered by the opening of a sea route to India and the East.
See you soon, Pamela.
