Groups, Education, and Ministries
"To educate (from educare, to lead forth) never means to force into from the outside, but always means to draw out from within something already there. God as infinite wisdom lies within every human being, only waiting to be led forth into manifestation. This is true education." - Emilie Cady, Lessons in Truth
