City Of Angels Church of Religious Science is a 5,000 member
church founded by Drs. O. C. and Robbie Smith. It is a
Mecca in the City of Los Angeles for all those who seek to be inspired,
re-generated and filled with the Spirit and Love of God. Although
Dr. O. C. moved into the Great Invisible in November 2001, the Spirit
and Soul of this man, the Greatest of modern day Metaphysicians, is
alive and felt throughout this immense complex called the City Of
Angels. Dr. O. C. left a great woman, Dr. Robbie G. Smith, his
beloved wife, to continue his legacy. Dr. Robbie is very
forthright in her admission that she administrates this great church
under Divine Guidance. She has a clear understanding of what a
great work the Infinite has given her to do, a work, I am certain, she
never dreamed she would be left to do without the Great Dr. O. C. at her
side. But, nonetheless, she has moved this great church
forward with the help of those who understand the vision, including the
incredible Dr. Frank Richelieu. Dr. Frank Richelieu moved from
retirement (Redondo Beach Church of Religious Science) to speak
regularly at the City Of Angels, a church founded by his ex-students.
There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that I was Divinely
Guided and Directed to Dr. O. C. Smith and the City Of Angels Church of
Religious Science. The first time I sat in the magnificent
sanctuary and listened to Dr. O. C. Smith, I could actually feel a
physical release of stress and tension in my mind and body. Even
to this day as I listen to tapes of his services, my soul is up-lifted
and I feel a greater connection to the Infinite. You could
"feel" Dr. O. C.'s voice even before you could hear it ... it
was so powerfully strong from his soul. This Great Teacher of
Religious Science came to his audience every Sunday with an immense
capacity for Love ... and everyone could feel his sincerity and
authenticity. He had no agenda except to teach the Principles of
Religious Science to everyone that would listen so they could enhance
their life experiences. He did not look at who was poor, who was
rich, who was white, black or whatever ... he loved everyone dearly and
I met Dr. O. C. through my first teacher, Dr. Domenic A.
Polifrone at a meeting of ministers. I had little time at this
meeting to talk with Dr. O. C. but I could see right away why Dr.
Domenic had such high regard for him. He was a powerful presence
and I could feel his presence even in this brief meeting. The next
time I saw him was at a fund-raiser at Dr. Domenic's church and still,
he was a distance away from me but I could feel his presence in the
fairly large auditorium on Sunset Boulevard. But, as there are no
coincidences in Life, I met him again, at Dr. Domenic's hospital room in
Hollywood when he came to visit. After he greeted Dr. Domenic, he
asked me to sit and pray with him for Dr. Domenic ... he immediately
went into Silent Treatment ... sitting at least 8 feet across the room
from me ... but I could feel his presence as if we were sitting
side-by-side ... he was that powerful. After the Treatment was
completed, I knew in my mind that if I was ever in a position to seek
another teacher of Religious Science, Dr. O. C. would be the one.
And as Life brings all things together for our Good ... he became my
ministerial teacher, mentor and Great Inspiration.
June 22nd I will begin my day by presenting a Service at 9:00 a.m. in
Palm Springs for the Palm Springs Church for Today ... and continue on
to present a Service in San Fernando/Pacoima at 1:15 p.m. for the Light
Of Truth SOM Center... and then ... I will realize a goal that I have
had instilled in my heart since the first day I walked into the City Of
Angels ... I will present a Service at Drs. O. C. and Robbie
Smith's City Of Angels Church of Religious Science at 6:00 p.m. ...
accompanying me will be my good friends, Rev. Leon Bell, Rev. Laura
Bean, Rev. Irene Danon and the incredibly talented Todd Hunter who is
currently on tour with Dionne Warwick. In Religious Science we
teach ... "whatever the mind of man/woman can conceive ... he/she
can achieve" ... and this Is the Truth!
So It Is!
Love Use Me In Its Own Good Way,
