March 26, 2023

The weekly meditations this week include:

  • Kirtan from 6 to 9.
  • 6-hour Thursday meditation this week will be held on Wednesday, March 8, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. due to the commemoration service on Thursday.
  • Friday evening from 7 to 9.

For safety reasons, the gate to the parking lot will only be open for services and scheduled events from now on. The rest of the time, the gate will remain closed. Contact your committee chair if you need access.

Next Sunday, following the service, we will have a general-membership meeting to take a vote on expenditures for a new air-conditioning system, new double-pane windows in the chapel, and new sliding glass doors. Please plan to stay for this meeting.

Next Sunday will be the first day of a spring food drive that will extend through April. There will be a box in the hallway for donations of non-perishable food items. Please remember to check expiration dates for all donations.

On April 9, Easter activities will include a sunrise service at 7 a.m, followed by our regular meditation at 9 and reading service at 10, with an Easter egg hunt for Sunday School children. Our Easter brunch on the back patio will follow the service.

Volunteers are needed to help set up, serve food, and clean up after the Easter brunch. If you are able to help, please sign up at the volunteer table with the royal blue tablecloth.

We have an Easter card for Bro. Chidananda that will be available for signing today and next Sunday, as you exit the chapel.

On Saturday, April 29, we will have a one-day retreat, which will include meditation with kirtan, a video recording of a talk by an SRF monastic, and selected readings. Bring your own sack lunch. There will be a sign-up sheet on the volunteer table.

These weekly announcements also can be found on the back bulletin board.

Our topic this morning is “The Way to Lasting Peace and Happiness”.
