The Steps Vigil

  • 07:00 PM

Live Broadcast the evenings of – May 26th, 27th, June 1st, 2nd, and 8th at 7:00 PM MDT, June 10th at 6:00 PM MDT, and June 14th at 9:00 AM MDT

Join us in the annual commemorative Steps Vigil. In 1989, a man named Marshall Vian Summers experienced an overwhelming “Angelic Presence” come into his mind and environment.

Over the 20 days that followed, he received a revelation which has now touched thousands of people around the world. This revelation is called Steps to Knowledge.

Equal to any religious or philosophical text to appear on Earth, this revealed text contains 365 “steps” that can enable each person to make the return to God.

Today, the Worldwide Community of the New Message celebrates over this 20-day period the days when Steps was received, when human spirituality was renewed and a pathway to God was given anew–pure, uncorrupted and available to all.

Join us in this special time of commemoration and observance of this unparalleled gift to the world.

Take a journey from May 26, the first day in the reception of Steps and the Opening Broadcast, through the remaining six days on which sections of Steps to Knowledge were received, ending on June 14th.

Begin or deepen your journey in Steps to Knowledge.

Join us live online and participate on the Worldwide Community Site on The Steps Vigil page as The Steps Vigil begins (Free registration required).

We also invite you to share your experience of practicing Steps to Knowledge by recording a 3-4 minute video of you reading a Step and sharing your experience. These videos will be posted on the Worldwide Community Steps Vigil page.
