JULY THEME

Pulled By Vision

 

To affirm is to declare that something is 100 percent true, and to stand in that truth — even in the face of all evidence to the contrary.
Affirmation:

I receive what I need so that I give what is mine to give.

Reverend Bonnie L. Smith
Reverend Bonnie felt the call to ministry when she was in High School back in the 70’s. She attended Grinnell College where she double majored in religion and psychology graduating with a BA (1980).  Reverend Bonnie then became a certified American Sign Language interpreter, and has been serving the deaf community for over 30 years.
Rev Bonnie found her home in Religious Science in 2000 when she walked into the Albuquerque Center for Spiritual Living. She moved to Las Cruces in 2006 as she started her last year at the Holmes Institute with the goal of becoming a Community Spiritual Leader in some capacity through the Centers for Spiritual Living.  She received her MA in Consciousness Studies from the Holmes Institute in 2007. Presently she is an ordained Religious Science minister and Practitioner, and in the spring of 2013 began serving CSL in the Heart of Las Cruces, first as Interim, and then as the Permanent Community Spiritual Leader in November 2014. 

Rev. Bonnie believes that uplifting our consciousness uplifts and changes our lives. You can meet with her for personal spiritual counseling, pastoral care, or to gain a deeper understanding of these teachings by making an appointment. Rev. Bonnie and the Center are also available to serve you in celebrating life events such as weddings, & memorials, etc. In addition, she is also fluent in American Sign Language. Rev. Bonnie can be reached by calling or texting 575-635-8081, emailing lavlight@gmail.com, or leaving her a message at the Center.

TRUSTEES IN TOUCH
June 2021
Greetings from your Board. This month we had a full agenda as we explored many issues related to the individual needs of the community, our budget, and the needs of our building. Rev. Bonnie walked us through an abbreviated Visioning exercise to help us get focused.

The board added six more hours a week for our new office manager, Lisa Tyler. The extra hours will cover the tasks of an Event Coordinator, something that is needed to explore ways to increase our income by expanding constructive use of our space at the Center.

The toilet in the main bathroom will be brought up to ADA compliance.

The board had a long discussion regarding whether to continue the requirement of masks in the building. Since there are those among us who will remain unvaccinated the board decided that masks will be the continued requirement during our normal CSL business hours and at any CSL sponsored event. The board will continue to research the best current practices given the status of the Covid virus, the possibility of new strains coming to our state and city, and continue to monitor the state and federal standards and requirements. Our main concern is creating as safe an environment as possible for all members of the community. We hope you understand.

Meditation is resuming on Sunday mornings from 10:15 to 10:35 with services starting at 11:00. The bookstore will be open before and after services. Remember to check the CSL website at http://csl-lascruces.org.
Love and Light,
Your Trustees
