Week of February 2, 2020
Sunday Message: Spirit In Me
with Rev. Amani Malaika
Special Music with the Amazing ABQ CSL Players

“We believe in the unity of all life, and that the highest God
and the innermost God is one God.”
-- Ernest Holmes

This statement is one of the core principles of Science of Mind and of all the world’s teachings. What happens when we commit ourselves to a spiritual practice that continually inspires us to know and experience this truth? I believe what happens is that we easily create the lives we want for ourselves and the world we want to be living in. Yay Me!!

Discussion Questions
1.  What are some ways you find spiritual inspiration?
2.  How do you make the idea of Spirit In Me real for yourself?
3.  What has been your spiritual journey to discovering this truth: Spirit is in me.

Join us Sunday as we discover Spirit In Us.

Board Elections!
Its that time of year again where Board Elections are just around the corner. Elections are held at our annual meeting which are typically at the end of April or beginning of May. This year there will be three (3) open seats on the board needing to be filled. If you are interested in serving our community via a seat on the Board, please find the lavender information packet and application in the lobby near the Board bulletin board. All our board members are also available to answer questions.
