A word used in the Course which has bothered me from time to time is “function”. Somehow it sounds cold, like referring to a machine. Not wanting to be close-minded, I looked it up and found this: “An activity or purpose natural to or intended for a person or thing.” Well, if I let go of the ego’s thought system, isn’t my natural activity one of forgiveness–letting go of the darkness of the past and living in the present with love? Now I’m more at ease with the term and more willing to accept my role is a member of the Sonship.
” The light of the world brings peace to every mind through my forgiveness. I am the means God has appointed for the salvation of the world.”

Since you’re here… …we have a small favor to ask. More people are reading our posts, listening to our audios and watching our videos than ever before but far fewer are donating for it. As an all-volunteer ministry, you can see why we need to ask for your help. MiraclesOne provides ACIM resources freely however it takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe in encouraging others to practically apply the Course principles in their lives – because it might just make the one difference in your life. If everyone who reads, listens or watches and likes what we offer helps to pay for it we can continue to afford our expenses and keep our resources FREE to all ACIM Students. Monthly Donors receive free gifts in appreciation for their support.
