Raised Lutheran. Became atheistic in early adulthood, simultaneously thirsty for truth. Eckhart Tolle's teachings led me to ACIM, but I could not understand the Course until I read Gary Renard's DU. Ken Wapnick's teachings have been invaluable to me.
Have been studying ACIM since 2005 following Gary Renard's first DU workshop. His "Your Immortal Reality" led me to Rogier's study group, a treasure trove of insight into Jesus' timeless message in the Course and the Gospel of Thomas. What a find!
Not necessary for salvation (as ALL the action is in the mind, where our true guide is, of course), but Rogier's group meetings do afford a pleasant time for Course students to get together and share experiences with one another in a comfortable setting. Rogier keeps the group focused on the teachings, offers wonderfully fresh perspectives on our readings of the text and lessons, and is a great source of information. It's just fun!
