Week of June 19  - June 25, 2017

“All person who desire to bring about world unity should seek a mutual understanding of the meaning of life and death.  It is by understanding that life continues after death that we can unite our consciousness with the cosmic consciousness of God and find the cord of one life, one law, one rhythm, and one wisdom uniting us all. ”

Announcements:

 

• Our monthly all day meditation is scheduled for this Saturday, June 24 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. This month we will have a non-guided 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.

 

• Our next Day of Service and Fellowship will be held on Saturday, July 01 starting at 8:30 am. 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 RSVP by filling out the sign-up sheet located in the chapel foyer as this will help us to organize head count for lunch on the Day of Service.

 

• All children and teens between the ages of 7 to 18 are invited to the SRF Summer Day Program in Encinitas, California. This program ushers in a new era of training for youth in our Guru’s How-to-Live spiritual principles. With guidance from SRF monastics, teens and children will have an opportunity to deepen their relationship with God, learn SRF techniques of meditation, engage in fun activities and create friendships with spiritually-minded peers. The girls week will be June 26-30 and the boys week July 3-7.
