Light of Christ Center Roots and History


The Center was established in Huntsville, Alabama, in 1968 by Helen Parrish Benton.  Originally it was called the Children of Light Society and the church branch was called the Church of the Living Light.  The theosophical writings were the basis for our belief system.  We feel these are ancient and universal truths for the whole planet.  The Alice Bailey books became and are still very important to us also.  The name was changed to the Light of Christ Center in 1983.  We are finding many very good sources of study in some newer writings in the last ten to fifteen years.
