Sunday Message: The Holy Whole
with Rev. Amani Malaika & the ABQ CSL Players


It seems to me that it is only as we view all life--everything from what we call great to what we call small, important or unimportant--it is only as we view the whole thing as "one stupendous whole, whose body nature is with God the soul" that we shall really enter into communion, into sympathetic oneness and rapport, with the reality of all that is about us.
--Ernest Holmes, founder of Science of Mind

As we complete our Querencia series, I invite us to contemplate the infinite location of this sacred, powerful place. If God is omnipresent, querencia is omnipresent. What becomes possible in our communities when we expand the location of safety and strength to all the places we find ourselves for all the people with whom we cross paths?

Join us in our virtual sanctuary to envision an infinite querencia for all.

11:00 AM Sunday on Facebook Live and YouTube.

Sunday Message Discussion Questions
  1. By widening your view, where are new places in your life that you may find querencia?
  2. What are ways you could expand your sense of querencia and offer it to others?
