Edgar Cayce Study Group
1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month
7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Edgar Cayce is perhaps one of the best known
clairvoyants of the last century. While most of
his psychic readings were dedicated to healing
people, his readings also covered a wide range of
spiritual and metaphysical topics.
This group will study the Edgar Cayce Readings (ECRs) by using the textbook, A Search for God, a book of affirmations and discourses based on the readings. Through study of the book, the group will discuss how to practically apply loving Christian aspects such as cooperation, self knowledge, faith, virtue and patience into their daily lives.
