Be a Warrior of Light
God’s light is within me and around me.
With the sword of faith in my hand, with the love of God in my heart,

I join my brothers and sisters everywhere to overcome fear with faith,
hatred with love, and disease with health.
We all are warriors of light.
We fill the world with God’s light.

Bookstudy: In Divine Friendship begins May 3
Imagine someone who never judges, who loves you despite your faults, who sees you in terms of your highest spiritual potential, and is totally committed to helping you realize that potential. Imagine someone who gives you strength and under-standing, seeking nothing in return, who offers, but never imposes, his views. Imagine someone who is always forgiving, respectful, and loving, even under the most adverse circumstances.
This begins to describe Swami Kriyananda, as seen through the letters in this book.
Mondays at 5 pm. All are welcome. Free of charge.
