Saturday, November 14, 2009 — from 1- 5.30 pm
Igniting the Universal Will-to-Good in a Time of Decision
…the will of God in world affairs, which is ever the will-to-good. Steadily—if you study human history intelligently — you will see that there has been a regular and rhythmic progression toward unity and synthesis in all departments of human affairs. This unity in multiplicity is the Eternal Plan — a unity in consciousness, a multiplicity in form. (Destiny of the Nations, p.12)
An afternoon of talks, discussion and meditation on ways in which the will-to-good is being transmitted by the work of the new group of world servers into all situations and every kingdom in nature, stimulating the growth of right relations at a crucial phase in history.
