Sunday Message: Peace Out
with Rev. Amani Malaika
Special Music with the Amazing ABQ CSL Players

As we navigate this time change in our lives and across the planet, one of the things I am seeing and hearing from many folks is that they are waking up to what is not working in their own lives. I am noticing a clarity arise in many of us. We may be asking ourselves, "Why didn't I always do this?" or "Why do I do this at all?" Many of us are already declaring to ourselves and others that we will not go back to old ways of being.

Join us online this Sunday in our virtual sanctuary as we let go and say, "Peace out!" to what no longer serves.

Feeling lonely? Sick of social media? Join the club! You are invited to join the ABQCSL.ORG Online Community Forum coming soon. Stay connected even when you have to step away from social media. This resource will be a place to go without experiencing the overwhelm of the world wide web. It's a safe place (yes, moderated) where people will be a source of support, spiritual uplift, connection, inspiration, transformation, light, love, hope, and humor for each other. It's a place to keep growing and keep knowing. We are One. Even when we can't be together physically. Watch you email inbox and Facebook feed for the launch announcement.

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.

Normally, agendas for both types of meetings are posted in the lobby the Sunday prior to the meeting. During this time, however, we will be including agendas in the newsletter (note: all are subject to change) and Board meetings are being held virtually, via Zoom. If you'd like to participate virtually, contact for more information.

Your current Board of Trustee officers are:
President: Kenneth Winfrey
Vice President: Lisa Crawley
Treasurer: Cliff Wintrode
Secretary: Mickey Quintana
Assistant Secretary: Edker Matthews
Board Members: Caren Phillips, Paula Worley, and Rev. Amani Malaika (non voting)
Executive Advisor to the Board: Candace Sestric (non voting)
