Week of Mar 17th - Mar 23rd, 2014

"Learn to see God in all persons, of whatever race or creed. When you begin to feel your oneness with every human being, you will know what divine love is; not before. In mutual service we forget the little self, and glimpse the one measureless Self, the Spirit that unifies all men."

 - Paramahansa Yogananda 

This Week's Services:

 Please join us this Sunday, March 23 for our weekly Service Reading entitled “How to Get Along With Others". The service is from 11 am to 12 noon. Sunday School for children ages 3-12 is also held from 11 am to 12 noon. Parents with younger children may enjoy the service from the infant room located in the Sunday School building. The Reading Service is preceded by a meditation service from 10 to 10:45 am, and by group practice of the Self-Realization Fellowship Energization Exercises at 9:40 am. The Center is open to the public for services and special activities.

Weekly Affirmation:

“In helping others to succeed I shall find my own prosperity. In the welfare of others I shall find my own well-being.”

  • Our next Day of Service and Fellowship will be held in the Chapel on Saturday, April 05 starting at 8:30am. We dedicate only one day a month to the care and upkeep of Master’s sanctuary in Houston so that it remains a magnet for those seeking to meditate together or to learn of Self-Realization Fellowship for the first time. If you are planning to attend, please let Frank know by emailing him at frank.nadembega@gmail.com as this will help us to organize the head count for the lunch served on the Day of Service.
