Assessing Readiness to Attend
  Following are five statements relating to the purpose and intentions of the Sacred Days of Bible Mystery Retreat. Carefully read through each statement. Pay close attention to both the thoughts and feelings that arise in response to pondering each of them. Then place a check mark in front of the ones you are in agreement with.
I believe that there are Spiritual Truths governing all of life, and I would like to have a deeper understanding of the nature of these Truths.
I believe that living in accordance with Spiritual Truth will improve the quality of my life, and I would like to learn how to apply these Truths to my own life experiences.
I believe that the Bible contains illumined Wisdom for the evolution of humanity, and I want to develop the skills that will enable me to access that Wisdom for the evolution of my own soul.
I feel a strong affinity towards Jesus Christ. Yet, I intuitively feel there is more for me to know about him and his teachings than what I have learned through traditional religious doctrines.
I have read Spiritual Interpretation of Scripture by Joel Goldsmith, and I am deeply inspired by this work.

My Prayer of Acceptance

There is only one Life. This Life is good; this Life is God; this Life is my Life now! I know that this Life is a source of Infinite Intelligence, acting in me, through me, and all around me. And even though I may not know how to provide the means to attend this Sacred Days of Bible Mystery Retreat, I know that this Intelligence knows exactly how to provide everything necessary for me to be in attendance. Therefore, I fully accept the physical and financial means that are so graciously provided by the Presence of the Christ in me. I now release any thought, belief, idea, attitude or suggestion that I might hold that does not support my attendance at this Retreat. As I accept this Good into my life, I give thanks with an open, gracious and joyous heart. Amen.
