 The Rodan Foundation's Publication for the Metaphysical Church of Enlightenment, December 2018

 In 1981, Reverend Clarke Carraway founded The Rodan Foundation with the intention of creating a powerful, growing community of awakening beings who experience love, peace, prosperity, unity, healing, harmony, and revelation through learning and service. The Rodan Foundation, recognizing the Law of Cause and Effect, expresses gratitude for the many blessings it reaps from the community's experiences.


Welcome. Join with us in our dynamic weekly services where we discover our true purpose in an emerging world.  Experience the revelation of our collective awakening to the power of love, the wonder of our multi-dimensional capacities, and the joy in reclaiming earth as our home. Sunday mornings provide the opportunity to celebrate life with like-minded beings and experience personal reassurance  and empowerment through the spiritual messages of Reverend Carraway's mediumship. We look forward to your participation enhancing our community. 

THE LIGHT OF THE SEASON


My dear friends, we love you so very much.

In the midst of the darkness, many centuries ago, there came a great light.  A humble child was born in a manger embodied a love so pure and surrendered to a light so bright that it forever changed and elevated the vibration of humanity.

Each of you remembers this light.  Each of you longs for this light.  Each one of you is birthed from this light, and each of you celebrates this light when you find it birthed within your own lives.   
You feel this light in every kind work and every thoughtful gesture.  You see this light in the eyes of everyb baby who looks upon the world with wonder.  You feel this light in  your own hearts when you extend compassion to a fellow human being.  You channel this light when you feel the currents of love and appreciation running through you, and every time you share a loving word or gesture with one another. 

This light lives in you.  You are the manger in which the light is born over and over again.  You are the lamps that never extinguish.  You are a spirit of the season, and your light is present all year long. 

So as you embark on your holiday season, be the light of the world.  When you shop for presents, shop with love.  When you make a gift, hold it to your heart and fill it with love.  When you bake, bake with love.  When you share with a charity, do so with love.  When you leave your milk and cookies for Santa, know that you are leaving an offering of love for the spirit of love and generosity, itself.  When you can sit for a moment, ask to be filled with heavenly peace, and to feel the presence of the silent night within your own quietly beating heart.

We wish you a season filled with peace, joy, wonder, and most of all, the beautiful light birthed within you, shining forth into a world in need.

God Bless You!  We love you so very much.
