Sunday Message: Spirit Through Me
with Rev. Amani Malaika
Special Music with the Amazing ABQ CSL Players

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
--
Anais Nin

When we discover Spirit in Me and practice Spirit as Me, we have no choice but to blossom into the beautiful, unique expression of Spirit that we are. Spirit Through Me is the natural outcome of our spiritual practice. What a gift we each are as Divine, unique expressions of Oneness.

Join us Sunday as we celebrate Spirit moving through each of us in all the beautifully unique ways that it does.

11:00 AM Sunday in the Sanctuary

Sunday Message Discussion Questions
  • What are some of the ways that Spirit moves through you?
  • What do you do when you feel disconnected from your true nature?
  • What practices do you engage in that help to reconnect to your Divine nature?

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.
