Week of January 19, 2020
 
Sunday Message: Calling In
by Rev. Amani Malaika
Special Music with the Amazing ABQ CSL Players

When we realize that God and each one of us are One and not two, we shall love both. We shall love each other as an expression of God and God as the Life Principle in all.
--Ernest Holmes, Science of Mind


In our culture recently, there has been a conversation about calling each other "out." It has been a much-needed conversation about being able to speak truth to each other when we are out of alignment. And some time in the last few years, I have been hearing the phrase "calling in." This is an opportunity to speak truth to someone compassionately.

What an opportunity to more deeply realize our Oneness in Spirit when we practice the art of calling in ourselves and the folks we are in community with.

Join us Sunday to call in a greater realization of Oneness.

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 and/or fourth 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.
