Event set for New Year’s Eve
Those interested in rising early on the last day of the year to pray and meditate for world peace are welcome to stop by the Spiritual Awareness Center, 218 S. D St., at 4 a.m.
The date was dubbed World Healing Day by John Randolph Price and his wife Jan, co-founders of the Texas-based nonprofit Quartus Foundation. The foundation is a New Thought spirituality researcher and promoter.
“Every spiritual group must rise above competitive attitudes and join together in a spirit of cooperation for world healing... No conflict of philosophies should keep us from supporting one another in this endeavor,” John Price said in his publication, The Quartus Report, about the prayer event in its first year, 1986. “The God who is to save mankind, if it is to be saved, is the divine potential within humanity itself, the celestial spark within each individual... There isn’t much doubt any longer that this universe is designed as a dwelling place for a race of gods.”
Staged each year on Dec. 31, the service is expected to join people around the world in a simultaneous effort to release love, light and spiritual energy into the collective consciousness, reverse humanity’s negative thought field, achieve a critical mass of positive energy, and build momentum for an hour of spiritual unity. The hope is to thereby bring about healing and an era of world peace...
