January 25 is observed each year as Founders
Day, honoring Andrew Jackson Davis and the
founding of the Spiritualist Progressive Lyceum
on January 25, 1863.
In 1863, Davis gave a lecture in New York idyllically
describing the education of children in the Summerland
in garden schools called Lyceums--a name used by the
popular adult education lecture programs of 19th century
America. He inspired his listeners to found such schools
here below on Earth, starting the Children's Lyceum or
Spiritualist Sunday School movement.
[from the NSAC Website &
Davis also received a "Magic Staff" from Spirit. It appeared
as a walking stick but was a metaphor for the principle
"Under all circumstances keep an even mind."
Frank & Valerie were honored to view the Magic Staff
during a visit to the Edgar Cayce Center in Virginia Beach
A tour of the archive was included during a workshop with
Janet Nohavec, and we were able to examine this priceless
relic firsthand with other Spiritualists.
Congratulations to Summerland’s
newest full member, Terry Kruse!
Last week we held our first Zoom Right Hand of
Fellowship and are happy to have Terry join us
as a full member. The presentation was offered
by Su Garrison-Terry and Frank Kotowski. We could not
shake hands or offer long hugs, but we found other
ways to express our love & appreciation!
Peace and harmony.
