Week of Feb 3rd - Feb 9th, 2014

"It doesn’t matter how many mistakes we have made; they are only temporary. You are formed in the image of Spirit. The Lord created this delusory motion picture of earth and all its pleasures for but one purpose: that perchance you would see through His play of Maya and forsake it to love Him alone.”

 - Paramahansa Yogananda 

This Week's Services:

 Please join us this Sunday, February 09 for our weekly Service Reading entitled “Lord, Possess Us With Thy Love". 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:

“O Spirit, teach me to pray with deep concentration, and to imbue scientific meditation with devotion. May my heart daily become more pure by all-surrendering love for Thee.”
