Gratitude at the David Hoffmeister ACIM Monastery

I want to thank Jason, and everyone at the Monastery again for welcoming me with such openness. I’m still amazed that I was granted this possibility to see shining samples of the teachings of A Course in Miracles, and for the first time in a lengthy while, I don’t feel alone.
