May 2017 Newsletter

In this issue:

  • The Lord’s Prayer, Part Three:  As the Young Jesus Develops, Evolution of the Cosmic Prayer Begins
    “…And then the god’s mission on earth struck him: I am not here to tell men how the gods brought the spirit down to earth, but how mankind can find the way from the earth up to the spirit.”  The Cosmic prayer of the Bath Kol told how the Gods brought the spirit down to earth – the Lord’s Prayer given by the Christ shows the way back up to the spirit.
