Shawn Smith was raised in a devout Roman Catholic home in St. Louis, Missouri, where the reality of dimensions beyond the physical was impressed upon him by a series of “experiences,” which his priests could not satisfactorily explain. The notion of God intrigued his young mind and set him on a trajectory to somehow find the answers to the questions that bewildered him.
After a family displacement to Africa, he explored the mainstream schools of thought within the multifarious branches of Christianity, and later pursued theological studies to the furthest extent and became an ordained member of the clergy. In the course of two decades of ministry, he realized that spiritual regeneration and transformation of enlightenment of which Christ Jesus and the Holy Apostles spoke, could not be obtained by the mere mental assent of a particular exegesis of Scriptures. His academic experience in pre-Nicene Patristics also informed him that there was “something” ancient and mystical among the originals of the Church founded by Christ Jesus that was remarkably absent in the current expressions of Christian sects.
Prayerful and considerate searches providentially guided him to the Cosolargy website, whereupon reading of their commitment to uphold the Spiritual Rights of the Races of Men, submitted his request to become a Consociate. He lives in Cameroon, where he is making progress in his second year of studies in The System.
