Dear Ones,

It is with a heavy heart that I let you know that our beloved member and friend, Fenix Blank made his transition into his next expression of life last Sunday, May 13th.

Our Jewish cousins have a saying when someone dear passes: "There is a little bit less God here on Earth today". That is how I feel when I think about Fenix.  He was a good friend to everyone, a magnificent father, and an incredibly talented man.
Fenix, Maria & Rex
I remember when we built this building, he helped set up our sound system with such patience, ease and grace. He continued to run our technology on Sunday mornings until his illness made that impossible. His daughter Maria (whom he adored!) continues her father's legacy here at the CSL.

Phoenix never once rolled his eyes at me, (as I know he often wanted to) when I asked stupid questions or made impossible requests. That was the kind of man Phoenix was and continues to be as he is dancing and breathing easily in his pain-free "body of light". 
We love you Fenix, we will miss you on this side of the Veil, but we know that you are with Spirit now, being a good friend and smiling that brilliant, shining smile!

Prayer of the Week
I know that God is the One and Only Presence and Power in this grand, glorious and magnificent Universe! God is the One Sacred Life Force, creating all things new in every moment. The beauty and bounty of Spirit is palpably present in this springtime energy. We see it in the trusting feet of ducklings following their parents down the side of a busy road. This God Presence is the delightful fragrance of the flowers, and the multiple shades of green in the blades of grass and new leaves on the trees. We are all unique and beautiful expressions of God, each one of us occupying an infinitely important space in this universe.

The Presence of God is a wellspring of Infinite Love, Peace, Joy, Abundance, and Wisdom at the center of every aspect of Life. As each individualized expression of Life claims and accepts this Truth, the collective energy is more than enough to Reveal Wholeness, Harmony and Perfect Love on this planet and in the entire cosmos. Humans gather together in families and communities with Divine Purpose to fulfill the greatest possible outcomes for the greatest good of all. This vision lifts all of creation to express Peace in every moment.

Gratitude, Thankfulness and Appreciation is expressed from every heart, as all of creation dwells together in Divine Harmony!

This Word is released into the Law of Mind with complete confidence that It Is Done! Amen!
