Announcements for Sunday, February 18

First of all, we have… Wonderful News!  Last Tuesday we received the Conditional Use Permit from the City of Escondido, with a unanimous vote by the eight commissioners.  This means our building project plans are approved and we can go ahead!  The next steps will be announced in the coming weeks by the Managing Council.

You are invited to share in light refreshments after the service this morning on the covered patio next to the Bookroom.

Also following our service this morning, we have a winter-clothing drive from 11 to noon.  A truck will be in the parking lot to collect any articles of clothing you may have brought to donate.  Especially needed are gently used jackets, sweaters, and long-sleeved shirts in any size.  The clothing will go to Brother Benno’s in Oceanside to benefit the homeless.

On the first Saturday in March, we will have a six-hour member-led meditation with kirtan, starting at 8 a.m. and ending at 2 p.m.

The Self-Realization Fellowship Lessons are filled with wisdom to help us navigate life’s challenges.  We have a Lessons Study class & meditation on Monday evenings from 6:30 to 8:30.  This week we will be reviewing Lesson # 54.

Throughout the week, there are  other opportunities for group meditation in the evenings, including:

  • A Sunday evening meditation from 6 to 9, with chanting on the hour. Note:  On the fourth Sunday of each month this meditation includes kirtan.
  • A meditation on both Wednesday and Friday evenings from 7 to 9.
  • A Thursday evening Inspirational Service from 7 to 8:00 with meditation to 8:30.
  • And on Saturday evenings, an Inspirational Service in Spanish from 6 to 8.

Weekly announcements also can be found on our back bulletin board.

 The topic this morning is True Religion: A Universal Need.
