Week of Apr 14th - Apr 20th, 2014

"Whenever you do away with ignorance and think good thoughts, Christ is being resurrected within you; that is, the Christ-consciousness that was fully manifested in Jesus is awakening within you. Resurrection is not the power of Spirit in the body of Jesus only; Spirit is in everyone. Nor does man have to die in order to resurrect Spirit."

 - Paramahansa Yogananda 

This Week's Services:

 Please join us this Sunday, April 20 for our weekly Service Reading entitled “The Easter Message of Immortality". 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:

"Christ is risen from the sepulcher of my indifference, and I behold him in the light of my devotion. I, a sleeping son of God, am coming out of my bodily prison into the vast freedom of Spirit.”
