We will have our next Day of Service on Saturday, September 30. The day will begin at 9:30 am with a meditation. We will have another meditation at 12:30 pm followed by a delicious vegetarian lunch at 1 pm that will be provided. Then we will finish up projects until 4 pm.
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.
Our furnace is not working. We are getting it repaired but meanwhile please dress warmly for services and meditations.
Today we will be viewing the DVD: Him I Shall Follow: Part 1, Sri Daya Mata
