Week of May 23 - May 29, 2016

Spiritual success lies in consciously attuning yourself with the Cosmic Mind, and in maintaining your peace and poise no matter what irremediable events occur in your life, such as the death of dear ones, or other sorrowful happenings.’’

Announcements:

 

• Our monthly meditation retreat is scheduled for this Saturday, May 28 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. This month we will have a guided meditation in the morning, which will include group practice of the SRF techniques of meditation. All are welcome to attend at any time during the day, but we ask that you enter or exit the chapel only during chants or readings.  The SRF Energization Exercises will be conducted as a group at 9:00 am.


• On Sunday, May 29 we will be screening a short film that was made of this year’s India Night event.  The movie will be shown after service at approximately 12:30pm and will last about 20 minutes.   We encourage all to come relive and enjoy that wonderful evening all over again.


• Our next Day of Service and Fellowship will be held on Saturday, June 04. 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. We encourage everyone to join us and share this special day of Service and Fellowship with other devotees. A delicious vegetarian lunch will be provided for all those who attend, so please email Sudha or sign up in the foyer to help us get an accurate headcount.


• The Managing Team would like to announce that there is no more need to make donations to the ‘’building fund’’ because the mortgage has been paid in full.   If you would like to make a donation to Houston Center please make your checks out to Houston Meditation Group.   Any checks that are made to ''Self-Realization Fellowship'' cannot be deposited and must be sent to Mother Center.  Thank you for your continued support and generosity.


• Please join us this and every Sunday after the services for our weekly juice social in the Sunday School building.
