I do not consider myself to be very important in the greater scheme of things. And yet, something in my world that has demonstrated remarkable vitality. That is the Worldwide Community of the New Message from God.
I am a small part of a great work
In the face of a difficult year, this community has made great efforts and great accomplishments. One of the goals is publication of the entire New Message from God during the lifetime of Marshall Vian Summers. The New Message from God published three books in 2020: The Pure Religion, Preparing for the Greater Community, and The Worldwide Community of the New Message from God.
Each in his own tongue
I am a small part of a great work. At the 2020 Summit, I discovered that some French-speaking students proposed translating the New Message from God many years ago. These students were trusting their deepest inclinations. This has become a much larger enterprise since then, with translation in some stage in 34 different languages. The translator community translated roughly twice as many revelations in 2020, than in 2019.
Making noises in greater amounts
I am a small part of a great work. There are many students of the New Message from God who are tireless advocates on many different social media platforms. I believe their work has borne fruit. The Society for the New Message from God reported that 106,000 people engaged with the New Message from God on their Facebook, Twitter and YouTube pages in 2020. Furthermore, 413,000 people visited the New Message web site in 2020. I take great encouragement in these statistics. At present, I can only dream of the glorious day when the New Message has 106,000 students with the devotion our community currently demonstrates.
I am a small part of a great work. I have not spoken of the leadership efforts of Marshall Vian Summers and his associates here. But when I think of them, I recall this passage from the Tao Te Ching:
When the Master governs, the people
are hardly aware that he exists.
Next best is a leader who is loved.
Next, one who is feared.
The worst is one who is despised.
If you don’t trust the people,
you make them untrustworthy.
The Master doesn’t talk, he acts.
When his work is done,
the people say, “Amazing: we did it, all by ourselves!” (Tao Te Ching 17, Mitchell)
One day, our community will say something like that.
