Week of March 22, 2020
Sunday Message: Blessings in Disguise
with Rev. Amani Malaika
Special Music with the Amazing ABQ CSL Players & Michael Herndon

"...Trade the razzle-dazzle of paranormal phenomena for the blessing of the ordinary."
--Mirabai Starr

When we slow down and connect with the moment we are in--looking through the eyes of Spirit--we can begin to experience the blessings that surround us in all the ordinary and extraordinary moments.

Join us online this Sunday in our virtual sanctuary as we reveal Spirit in the most unlikely places.

Board of Trustees
Have questions, suggestions, or comments? Please let the board know:

The monthly board meetings are where Board members review Center business through reports from the Treasurer, the Minister, and the Finance Committee and vote on matters as needed. It is a forum to bring new business and raise concerns. Community members are welcome and encouraged to attend. Monthly board meetings are typically the fourth Thursday of each month, starting at 6:00 PM. 

Board working sessions are meetings set aside specifically as work days to give us time to finish tasks, address topics not normally addressed in the monthly meetings, or when our work load is such that the monthly meeting is not enough time. These meetings are also open to the community. Working sessions will be called on an as-needed basis, typically on the second Thursdays of each month, starting at 6:00 PM.

Agendas for both types of meetings are posted in the lobby the Sunday prior to the meeting.

Your current Board of Trustee officers are:
President: Kenneth Winfrey
Vice President: Lisa Crawley
Treasurer: Cliff Wintrode
Secretary: Mickey Quintana
Assistant Secretary: Edker Matthews
