We are reviewing the timing of our weekly Saturday 3-hour meditations and seek your feedback.  We are considering a 6-month trial starting in 2018 of changing from evenings 6 – 9 p.m to mornings 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. The primary reasons for considering the change are that people often feel more fresh for meditation in the morning, and some of our members prefer not to drive at night. Please indicate your preference and provide comments using the printed feedback forms in the social room.  We will collect feedback through Sunday October 8th.

The subject for today’s service is: “A Yogi Christ and His Way to Salvation.”
