Announcements for Sunday, November 25, 2018
The Helping Hearts committee would like to thank everyone who contributed to the Shoeboxes of Joy wrapping and packing party last Sunday November 18. There were many behind-the-scenes helpers as well as those who did the wrapping and packing. A total of 51 boxes from our Center were delivered by Catholic Community Services to members of our community who are elderly and disabled.
All are warmly invited for our pre-Christmas 4-hour kirtan meditations. The next one will be held on Saturday December 1 from 5 p.m. – 9 p.m. Note the evening timing for these meditations and that each will be preceded by group Energization Exercises at 4:40 p.m. The usual 10 a.m. meditation on those days is cancelled.
Next Sunday, December 2, we will decorate our chapel Christmas tree at Noon after the services. Please join us! Everyone is invited to participate and children are especially encouraged.
On Wednesday, December 12 at 6 p.m., SRF’s YouTube channel will livestream an announcement from our President, Brother Chidananda, in which he will share news about the launch of the new edition of the Self-Realization Fellowship Lessons. All are invited and encouraged to tune in for this special occasion.
Our annual 8-hour All-Day Christmas Meditation will held from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Saturday, December 15. Energization Exercises will be practiced individually prior to 10 a.m., and we recommend arriving 30 minutes early to select a seat and get settled. In the week ahead we’ll put out information sheets describing how to prepare for the All-Day Christmas Meditation.
At the conclusion of this service, please stay in the chapel for a brief update from our Center Coordinator Jeremy Jones which will be less than 5 minutes long.
Today is our monthly DVD showing and we will view Part 2 of the DVD: “Yoga – The Quintessence of Spirituality” by Brother Chidananda.
