Weekly Service Topic and Announcements

The service topic for February 5th is Experience the Love of God

Announcements for January 29th. The coming week’s announcements will post on Saturday or Sundays.

Lesson Study
The Lesson Study group will meet upstairs in Room 11 today at 12:30 PM. We are
finishing Lesson 39; please bring Lessons 39 and 40 or some proof verifying that
you are an SRF Lesson student.

Young Adults Group
A newly formed Young Adults Group for ages 18-39 will meet at 12:30 pm TODAY.
We will meet upstairs in room 3, next to the kitchen. There will be kirtan,
meditation, a discussion of a spiritual topic relevant to young adults, fellowship, and
refreshments. The meeting will also be attended by an SRF monastic. The Young
Adult group provides an environment that encourages quality friendship, spiritual
fellowship, and can be a bridge toward becoming a Lesson student, Kriya disciple
and a contributing member of the Temple. For further information, please email
YoungAdults@SanDiegoTemple.org or sign up for further notifications on the home
page of the temple website, SanDiegoTemple.org.

Sunday Meditation
The Temple Kirtan group will play tonight at the evening meditation service which
will begin at 5:30PM and end at 7:30PM. Energization Exercises will precede the
Meditation and will start at 5:10PM.

Meditation Class
Are you new to meditation? Please join us on Thursday, February 2nd, at 7:00 PM
when Brother Padmananda will give a class geared towards newcomers entitled,
“Learn to Meditate”. Come and learn how yoga meditation works and how to
practice it. All are welcome to attend; veteran meditators may learn something new
and will help support the group effort. Please stop by our bookroom after the class.
There you will find free literature and an extensive collection of writings by our
founder, Paramahansa Yogananda.

One Day Retreat
Save the date: on Saturday, February 11th , Brothers Padmananda and Jitananda will
conduct a retreat from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM. In the morning, there will be a
review of Master’s Meditation techniques. After a mid-day break, there will be a
Satsang, a Guided Meditation, a showing of an SRF video featuring Brother
Anandamoy, and we will end with a brief period of chanting and meditation.
Lesson Students should bring proof of enrollment for the morning session; all may
attend the afternoon events, beginning at 12:30 PM.

Fundraiser Update
We are very pleased to announce that we have just reached 86% of our temple
Fundraising goal!  $168,000 has been collected to date in the current Fundraising
effort.  We heartily thank all of you for your generous financial donations.  Let’s
continue this excellent effort in the remaining weeks of the Fundraiser.  We are only
$27,000 away from our goal of $195,000 and the final date to contribute will be
February 25th!  The support of this congregation to date has been tremendous and
we are very grateful!

Our Minister this morning is Brother Jitananda.
