Description

The Center of Divine Light is a spiritual growth and healing center that emphasizes a belief that angels are divine beings of healing, aid, and protection. While adopting biblical language as it relates to the divine, heavenly spaces, and the nature and naming of angels (e.g., the archangel Raphael), the Center of Divine Light rejects the bounded labels of any one religious tradition. The Center was founded by the Reverend Christine Andrews, a Reiki master/teacher and ordained priest of the Order of Melchizedek. Members of the Center of Light congregation call themselves “Beings of Light” who are purified, protected, and energized through ritualized interactions with angelic beings often through a combination of spoken word, prayer, and music. A multi-faith community that celebrates personal belief, the Center of Divine Light, like many metaphysical and New Age groups, seeks to actualize a message of unitive oneness, harmony, and love communicated by angels while directly helping individual members realize their full potential.
