Week of Apr 21st - Apr 27th, 2014

"Ask yourself this question: "Have I tried to do anything that nobody else has done?" That is the starting point in the application of initiative. If you haven't thought that far, you are like hundreds of others who erroneously think they have no power to act differently than they do. They are like sleepwalkers; the suggestions of the subconscious mind have given them the consciousness of one-horsepower people."

 - Paramahansa Yogananda 

This Week's Services:

 Please join us this Sunday, April 27 for our weekly Service Reading entitled “Increasing the Power of Initiative". 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:

"I take a sacred vow: Never will I do anything that reminds me not of Thee.”

(Whispers from Eternity)
