Ministers who give service on Sundays: Asha, Shanti, Helen, and Gary.


Sunday Services Library

Sunday Services at Ananda explore the underlying unity between the mystic yoga tradition of the East and the original teachings of Christianity. Each week, the sermon is inspired by parallel passages from the Bible and the Bhagavad Gita. There are 52 readings during the course of a year, exploring some of the most essential questions we ask about life, God, morality, and appropriate action in the world. The cycle begins with the 1st week of January, with several years' sermons under each topic.
