It’s that wonderful time of year when as a spiritual family we celebrate our beloved Rev. Michael Beckwith’s appearance day, his journey around the sun once more!
We are blessed to call Agape International Spiritual Center home and Rev. Michael a friend and beloved teacher. This year, in celebration of our Founder and Spiritual Director we take a moment to say thank you for all that he has offered and continues to offer in our lives.
Agape is highly regarded for its cultural, racial, and spiritual inclusivity. The late Coretta Scott King wrote this to Rev. Michael,
“I greatly admire what you are doing to bring about the Beloved Community, which is certainly what my dear husband worked for and ultimately gave his life.” Rev. Michael’s devotion to Agape and to the inner discipline and teachings that cultivate and celebrate the highest of who we are as spiritual beings has allowed for us to thrive during this historically significant time of COVID-19, and the commitment to social justice through the Black Lives Matter and the Antiracist movements. At the same time, these moments make us aware that there is even more work to be done.
In light of this this pivotal moment and on the wonderful occasion of Rev. Michael’s appearance day, there is one gift each of us can give that outshines any other, a financial contribution to your Agape spiritual home, in support of the Agape Technology Fund. During these past few months, the digital demand on Agape technology has significantly increased and we are going to make a substantial investment in upgrading our systems. In addition, Agape will be providing even more online services, specifically bringing more online course opportunities, and answering the community's call for online Practitioner and Ministerial programs, so no matter where you are in the world, you can be a part of the evolutionary unfolding of the global Agape family. Having the highest quality technology, security, and delivery is critical as we continue to unfold as a community. It truly is time for Agape's next chapter and there is no more perfect catalyst than Rev. Michael’s appearance day, to take us there.
Our goal during this celebration is to collectively gift $100,000 or more to Agape, in support of the Agape Technology Fund, above and beyond your weekly tithes and donations.
Are you with us?
With this goal in mind Agape continues its 34-year commitment to being an international center for real global family values, inclusivity, generosity of heart, and unconditional love.
We know this is the best way to honor Rev. Michael as it truly is a gift to us all. Please join the Agape Board in supporting the Agape Technology Fund in honor of Rev. Michael’s appearance day. Together we can give Rev Michael the very best gift, the gift of connection and limitless possibilities for himself and for our Agape community.
Please accept our overflowing gratitude for your large-heartedness and spirit of generosity.
Peace and blessings,
The Agape Board of Trustees
