Welcome to the Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp Bookstore Blog! Although the Camp has been here since 1875 and incorporated as a town since 1894, the Bookstore has only been in existence since 1987.
It started out as a lending library in one bookcase in this building (now known officially as the Andrew Jackson Davis Bookstore & Information Center Building) and kept expanding. When people inquired about being able to purchase books, volunteers started buying books to sell in 1987 and the number of bookcases grew.
Spiritualism’s main focus is to promote an individual’s personal experience with God.
Spiritualism is a religion that is not based on a relationship with a particular savior. It recognizes all prophets that have come to humankind throughout the ages, not setting one above the other. Rather, it is based upon the idea that we are all to form our own relationship with God, and to obtain guidance and accept responsibility for our actions based on our interaction with that personal guidance. We are able to have that instant and personal communication directly with God through no intermediary; hence the reason that we do not give anyone a fixed idea of God, only that there is a God. Any attempt to personalize the idea of God only limits the totality of that Intelligence, which is the reason that Spiritualists sometimes refer to that idea of God as “Infinite Intelligence” or “Infinite Spirit.”
