History of the Course In Miracles Center

In 1985, at the age of 67, Frances Reed started the Portland ACIM Center. When she came to the Course in 1983 she knew this was to be her life work from then on. For many years she supported the Center from her small monthly social security check, and took in manuscript editing projects when her income wouldn’t cover all the expenses. There were many occasions when a timely donation allowed her to make the insurance payment or pay the postage for the newsletter, The Bridge, which recently ended publication after eighteen continuous years. In 2000 she turned the Center over to her daughter, Judy Allen. Now, the Center is operated by an active Board of seven members who continue its work.

Frances’ only purpose for the Center during the years that she was director, teacher, bookkeeper, and counselor, was this: “I am here only to be truly helpful. I am here to represent Him Who sent me. I do not have to worry about what to say or what to do, because He Who sent me will direct me. I am content to be wherever He wishes, knowing He goes there with me. I will be healed as I let Him teach me to heal.”

Through her many years of complete dedication to teaching and living the Course, Frances has created a “ripple effect” of healing and love in the world. It is a remarkable legacy.
