Week of Oct 14th-Oct 20th, 2013

"God created this world, but science says it evolved out of nebulae and water, and so on. If it were only evolution, matter could not take on such definite, intelligent forms, so that human life is possible. Though God created everything, He later gave creation the power to re-create itself.”

 - Paramahansa Yogananda 

This Week's Services:

Please join us this Sunday, October 20 for our weekly Service Reading entitled “Reincarnation". 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.

Weekly Affirmation:

“Heavenly Father, destroy in us the wrong thought of ages – that we are frail human beings. Manifest Thyself as the light behind our reason: the deep blaze of wisdom.”
