A Spiritual Classic
“Letters of the Scattered Brotherhood: A Twentieth-Century Classic for Those Seeking Serenity and Strength” was originally published as a book in 1948. Before then, the various letters were printed in a weekly newsletter for the fourteen years prior. The letters were written by different people, of different religions and from different cultures, then compiled and edited by Mary Strong. She has also included quotations (you know how I love quotations!) which she says are “evidence of the timelessness of the idea of inner spiritual illumination and of the great company scattered the world over without regard to space, time, age or creed.” I like to keep this book nearby, and when I need guidance, flip it open randomly to a page. There is always some wisdom and comfort to be garnered wherever I happen to land.
