It was the evening of October 26, 1987, in upstate New York. I remember it as well as my birthday. Rev. Penny, the founding pastor of Trinity Temple of the Holy Spirit, read from scripture as she always did as the introduction to her sermon. She looked up at the audience to speak, and her voice changed. It was slightly louder than Rev. Penny’s usual feminine voice; it spoke with authority. It said, “Children of God . . .” We realized later that she was channeling in full trance, which means she was not consciously aware of what she was saying. The spirit entity spoke for about twenty minutes and told us that we should wake up to our own divinity because we, and all humanity, are children of the Living God.
