Cynthia was ordained as a Spiritualist minister
on Jan. 24, 2010, at Sunset Spiritualist Church in Wells, Kansas. Her ordination came after over a decade of being associated
with the church.
To read the story about WHY Cynthia decided to become a Spiritualist minister, please
Rev. Evadne Tuxhorn...administering the vows of Ordination to Cynthia
Evadne presenting "Reverend Cynthia Killion" to the Congregation.
Part of the Spiritualist tradition for ordination is the laying-on-of-hands
to strengthen & transmit healing energy to the new minister so that she will be strong in her mission. Here you
see the Rev. Evadne Tuxhorn, and Rev. Gene Dorsey, both Spiritualist ministers, laying hands on Cynthia. Through their
touch, they are also passing a "spiritual lineage" of a kind, from/through themselves, to Cynthia.
And the laying-on-of-hands continues, now with the board members &
church elders, as well as with the ministers....
In the next few pictures, you will see various "views" of the Congregation
laying-on-hands upon Cynthia & transmitting energy. The purpose of this is to help strengthen Cynthia so that she
can better serve the community.
And finally, it's time for CELEBRATION!

Jim Haynes also produced a *lovely* video of the Ordination Ceremony. Unfortunately, it is too long to easily put on
this site. However, he took some of the "shots" from the DVD & used them to create a very nice "cover".
