Welcome by: Pastor Daniel
************************
Greetings my Beloved Sisters and Brothers, and welcome once again to the Church that is Within.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

The topic of today's Sunday Service, #715, is Independence…

*******************************************
The Sermon
***********
As we each must come to realize in our individual lives at some point or another, there is quite a difference between declaring our Independence, earning our Independence and in actuality Attaining our personal Independence.

The value of personal Independence is that it allows one to make his or her own choices and decisions… to determine their own fate, choose their own path. The drawbacks are that one then becomes subject to the cost or consequences of those decisions and choices. There is no true Independence without personal cost, without sacrifice of some sort.

Some there are that deem the price of personal Independence too high. They prefer the easy path of being told what to do or of doing what everyone else does so that they need not tax their brains with overmuch thinking… or perhaps it is simply that they fear making a mistake and being judged unkindly by others for their errors. Maybe they have been incorrectly taught that a mistake is failure rather than a valuable learning experience. Codependence appears on the surface to provide for them a means of avoiding embarrassment or, God forbid, any potential for loneliness. But along with it inevitably comes an indistinguishable and underlying sense of dissatisfaction, of discontent, of being unfulfilled. Codependence is indeed a normal phase of childhood and of adolescent transition into adulthood. But it cannot continue to coexist with true Independence. It must be shed as a no longer required cocoon which has served its purpose.

We begin life in total dependence, and transition hopefully through the codependence of youth into the relative maturity of Independence.

Had God made us all the same, there would be no need for Independence, nor opportunity for it. But God made us each Unique… one of a kind… Individual. What might that tell you of God's perspective on Independence?

Quotes
*******
(From: Tyron Edwards)
The principle of liberty and equality, if coupled with mere selfishness, will make men only devils, each trying to be independent that he may fight only for his own interest. And here is the need of religion and its power, to bring in the principle of benevolence and love to men.

(From: The Urantia Book - Paper-5 Section-5)
        Religion is not grounded in the facts of science, the obligations of society, the assumptions of philosophy, or the implied duties of morality. Religion is an independent realm of human response to life situations and is unfailingly exhibited at all stages of human development which are postmoral.

(From: Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882), Self-Reliance)
It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.

(From: Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)
Nothing in the world makes people so afraid as the influence of independent-minded people.

(From: Jane O'Reilly)
Maybe the greatest challenge now is to find a way to keep independence while also committing ourselves to the ties that bind people, families, and ultimately societies together.

(From: The Urantia Book - Paper-196 Section-3)
        Religion stands above science, art, philosophy, ethics, and morals, but not independent of them. They are all indissolubly interrelated in human experience, personal and social. Religion is man's supreme experience in the mortal nature, but finite language makes it forever impossible for theology ever adequately to depict real religious experience.

(From: Thomas J. Watson)
Follow the path of the unsafe, independent thinker. Expose your ideas to the dangers of controversy. Speak your mind and fear less the label of 'crackpot' than the stigma of conformity. And on issues that seem important to you, stand up and be counted at any cost.

(From: Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862)
A simple and independent mind does not toil at the bidding of any prince.

(From: Aleister Crowley (1875 - 1947)
The essence of independence has been to think and act according to standards from within, not without.

(From: The Urantia Book - Paper-16 Section-8)
Self-consciousness connotes recognition of the actuality of mind ministration and the realization of relative independence of creative and determinative free will.

(From: Elyon - 7/4/04 – The North Idaho TeaM)
        When you share with your fellows this joy at the realization of your cosmic independence, then your experience is augmented and your perspective is deepened. Finding yourselves independent of external thought patterns, you may feel indeed the sense of freedom and liberation which accompany the security that you gain by having the perspective and wisdom to realize that your cosmic independence transcends all manner of material, external forces and is indeed the platform on which you will build your eternal career regardless of the changing manifestations of your external surroundings. This is true independence, freedom. This is what each of us as a spiritual being desires and are accomplishing step by step as we assemble our spiritual wisdom and our spiritual perspective to build the platform on which we will operate. So, today while you observe the joy as your comrades celebrate a sense of freedom and liberation from external and sometimes oppressive forces, reflect, if you would, that each one of us must pause to celebrate this sense of freedom from any external limitations or forces at play on us at any given time. We are indeed free as spirits to be who we are, to have the accomplishments that we make, to enjoy the success of our efforts.

Welcome by: Pastor Daniel

Greetings my Beloved Sisters and Brothers, and welcome once again to the Church that is Within.

Past Sunday Services which have dealt with the topic of Today's Service focused almost entirely upon the nearly universal (at least once) prayer for it and the inevitable consequences of such an unthinking petition. Today, as an alternative perspective on the subject at hand, I will focus primarily upon neither the “Lack of” nor the “Need for” but rather the genuine Value of...

The topic of today's Sunday Service, #716, is Patience…

Quotes
*******
(From: Solonia - 1/5/05 – The Lightline TeaM)
You mentioned that you prayed for patience. We all chuckle at this particular prayer for we all make it and we have come to know without a doubt, that the way to gain patience is more and more and more opportunities to practice patience.

(From: St. Augustine)
“the reward of patience is patience.”

(From: The Tao Te Ching - #67)
I have just three things to teach:
simplicity, patience, compassion.
These three are your greatest treasures.
Simple in actions and in thoughts,
you return to the source of being.
Patient with both friends and enemies,
you accord with the way things are.
Compassionate toward yourself,
you reconcile all beings in the world.

(From: The Urantia Book - Paper-84 Section-7)
The family is the fundamental unit of fraternity in which parents and children learn those lessons of patience, altruism, tolerance, and forbearance which are so essential to the realization of brotherhood among all men.

(From: The RSV Bible - Romans 12:6 -18 )
Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; he who teaches, in his teaching; he who exhorts, in his exhortation; he who contributes, in liberality; he who gives aid, with zeal; he who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.
Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good; love one another with brotherly affection; outdo one another in showing honor. Never flag in zeal, be aglow with the Spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in your hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints, practice hospitality.
Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them.
Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.
Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly; never conceited.
Repay no one evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.
If possible, so far as it depends upon you, live peaceably with all.

(From: The Book of Runes - #6 - Initiation / Something Hidden / A Secret Matter (Perth)
You may feel overwhelmed with exhaustion from meeting obstruction upon obstruction in your passage. Yet you always have a choice: you can see all this apparent negativity as “bad luck” or you can recognize it as an obstacle course, a challenge specific to the initiation you are presently undergoing. Then each setback, each humiliation, becomes a test of character. When your inner being is shifting and reforming on a deep level, patience, constancy and perseverance are called for. So stay centered, see the humor, and keep on keeping on.

(From:
Saint Francis de Sales (1567 - 1622)

Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections but instantly set about remedying them - every day begin the task anew.

(From: The Tao Te Ching - #15)
Do you have the patience to wait
till your mud settles and the water is clear?
Can you remain unmoving
till the right action arises by itself?

(From: The Urantia Book - Paper-117 Section-6)
        Men do not find the Supreme suddenly and spectacularly as an earthquake tears chasms into the rocks, but they find him slowly and patiently as a river quietly wears away the soil beneath.

(From: The Book of Runes - #13 - Harvest / Fertile Season / One Year (Jera)
Remember the old story about the farmer who was so eager to assist his crops that he went out at night and tugged on the new shoots. There is no way to push the river; equally you cannot hasten the harvest. Be mindful that patience is essential for the recognition of your own process, which in its season, leads to the harvest of the self.

(From: Stanislaw J. Lec (1909 - 1966), "Unkempt Thoughts")
You must first have a lot of patience to learn to have patience.

(From: Thomas a Kempis (1380 - 1471)
Endeavor to be always patient of the faults and imperfections of others for thou has many faults and imperfections of thine own that require forbearance. If thou are not able to make thyself that which thou wishest, how canst thou expect to mold another in conformity to thy will?

(From: Edmund Burke (1729 - 1797)
Our patience will achieve more than our force.

(From: The RSV Bible - Corinthians I 13:4-7)
Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

(From: Victor Hugo (1802 - 1885)
Have courage for the great sorrows of life and patience for the small ones; and when you have laboriously accomplished your daily task, go to sleep in peace. God is awake.

(From: Comte de Buffon (1707 - 1788)
Never think that God's delays are God's denials. Hold on; hold fast; hold out. Patience is genius.

(From: Leonardo da Vinci (1452 - 1519)
Patience serves as a protection against wrongs as clothes do against cold. For if you put on more clothes as the cold increases, it will have no power to hurt you. So in like manner you must grow in patience when you meet with great wrongs, and they will then be powerless to vex your mind.

(From: Brian Adams)
Learn the art of patience. Apply discipline to your thoughts when they become anxious over the outcome of a goal. Impatience breeds anxiety, fear, discouragement and failure. Patience creates confidence, decisiveness, and a rational outlook, which eventually leads to success.

(From: Benjamin Franklin (1706 - 1790)
He that can have patience can have what he will.

(From: Horace Bushnell)
It is not necessary for all men to be great in action. The greatest and sublimest power is simple patience.

(From: Elbert Hubbard (1856 - 1915)
How many a man has thrown up his hands at a time when a little more effort, a little more patience would have achieved success?

(From: William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)
How poor are they who have not patience! What wound did ever heal but by degrees.

(From: Aristotle (384 BC - 322 BC)
Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.

(From: The RSV Bible - Galatians 5:22 23)
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such there is no law.

(From: Helen Keller (1880 - 1968)
Face your deficiencies and acknowledge them; but do not let them master you. Let them teach you patience, sweetness, insight.

(From: Peter Marshall)
Teach us, O Lord, the disciplines of patience, for to wait is often harder than to work.

(From: Edith Sitwell (1887 - 1964)
I am patient with stupidity but not with those who are proud of it.

The Sermon
***********
“Patience”

When you Have it, there just doesn't seem to be all that much demanding Need for it.
Only when you Don't have it, does it prove to be so essential and at the same time so hard to get hold of.
Why Is that do you think?

For some reason I have always had a rather negative take on the word Patience (not that I considered it an altogether Bad thing to have so much as an irritating thing to be in quest of, if you know what I mean ;-). But in fact, the Thesaurus has many interesting synonyms for the word Patience (indeed various aspects of Patience), which I will share with you here and comment briefly upon…

Endurance and Staying Power are two…
Good things both, and one would be hard pressed to find much that is negative or undesirable about either, wouldn't you say? If I have Them, then I am not totally without Patience of some sort after all.

Tolerance is another ...
Obviously it's an attractive quality to possess, though occasionally more than a little elusive. When I truly manifest it, Patience is present.

Persistence…
A little child knows well its effectiveness in attaining a desired goal. Though perhaps a tad bit irritating at inopportune times, one must agree that it is truly a characteristic worthy of nurturing rather than avoiding, no? Some may misinterpret persistence as a form of Impatience, but it is persistence that builds stalactites and turns rocks into fine sand. If That isn't Patience…

Fortitude…
It is a trait denoting strength, courage and resilience… Patience allows strength to build, courage to manifest and resilience to persevere.

Perseverance…
It is different from persistence in that it implies an overcoming of some form of discomfort or an endurance of pain as a means of eventually reaching a desired outcome. A certain degree of maturity is usually required for the valiant exercise of perseverance.

When I saw that Serenity was one of the synonyms for Patience, I had to think about it for a spell until, Yes of Course…
Serenity is the Gift that results from having Patience in all of its various forms and manifestations.

Serenity is the evidence of Having Patience, for indeed in the absence of Patience there is truly no Serenity.

So then… I guess Patience is actually a Good thing… worth cultivating. Do you Think?

Dear God,
        With us as your children, you must undoubtedly have Infinite Patience. I hope that some of it rubs off on us.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Greetings my Beloved Sisters and Brothers, and welcome once again to the Church that is Within.

I might as well just get on with it… ;-) …

The Sermon
***********
In early 1986 I had just finished carving a wood-sculpture of a woman---between 7 and 8 months pregnant with her left hand on her swollen belly, her right hand behind her neck, her head back and a pained look on her face---and was contemplating what I should title it. I was working at my smokeshop in San Diego at the time and, as luck would have it a mother carrying her month old baby came in. I showed her the piece and asked her what it most reminded her of. Without a moment's pause, she nodded and said, “The Waiting.” She snuggled her baby, smiled and remarked, “It was Worth it!” 'The Waiting' of course immediately became its title, and much more recently…

The topic of today's Sunday Service, #717, is “The Waiting…

Last week's service was on Patience and some of it's Values, and since The Waiting is often what so tries ones patience, I wondered if perhaps Waiting might not have one or two of it's Own inbuilt Values.

Regarding Waiting…

It is inevitable, inescapable, unavoidable and entirely predictable.
Too… it is inherent, built in, implanted and wholly natural.
Pretty much Everyone Would avoid it entirely if they could but…
None Can avoid it. None may avoid it. None Should avoid it.

It is what makes possible, all of the Good things in life. It is the condition, the state, the environment, wherein all things good manifest. It is in fact what Life is all about. Think about it if you will.

Undeniably True it is that Waiting contains its miserable parts… its pain… it's suffering but…

Without Waiting, there would be no Anticipation, nothing to Dream for, no feelings of Accomplishing something difficult. It is truthfully said that, 'Anything worth having is worth Waiting for.' The Waiting gives more Value to the Attainment.

While you are waiting… Anticipate, Dream, Hope, Learn, Grow, Commune with God.


The Waiting will be far more tolerable and perhaps even Enjoyable.

Quotes
*******
(From: The Book of Runes - #20 - A Journey / Communication / Union /Reunion)

Inner worth mounts here, and at such a time you must remember that you are not intended to rely entirely upon your own power, but rather to ask what constitutes right action. Ask through prayer, through addressing your own knowing, the Witness Self, the Teacher Within. Not intent on movement, be content to wait; while you wait, keep on removing resistances. As the obstructions give way, all remorse arising from “trying to make it happen” disappears.

(From: The Urantia Book - Paper-11 Section-4)
You must wait, and ascend while you wait, for truly, "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither has it entered into the mind of mortal man, the things which the Universal Father has prepared for those who survive the life in the flesh on the worlds of time and space."

(From: Alexander Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo)
The sum of all human wisdom is contained in these two words: Wait and Hope.

(From: The RSV Bible - Galatians 5:5)
For through the Spirit, by faith, we wait for the hope of righteousness.

(From: The Urantia Book - Paper-134 Section-9)
"It behooves me to keep busy while I wait for my hour to come."

(From: Anne Frank (1929 - 1945), Diary of a Young Girl, 1952)
How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.

(From: Isaac Newton (1642 - 1727)
I keep the subject of my inquiry constantly before me, and wait till the first dawning opens gradually, by little and little, into a full and clear light.

(From: “Jesus” - The Urantia Book - Paper-130 Section-5)
“You are born into the world, but no amount of anxiety and no manifestation of impatience will help you to grow up. You must, in all such matters, wait upon time. Time alone will ripen the green fruit upon the tree. Season follows season and sundown follows sunrise only with the passing of time.”

(From: Elizabeth Taylor, "A Wreath of Roses")
It is very strange that the years teach us patience - that the shorter our time, the greater our capacity for waiting.

(From: The Book Of Runes - #8 - Fertility / New Beginnings )
Being centered and grounded, freeing yourself from all unwanted influences, and seeing the humor, you are indeed prepared to open yourself to the Will of Heaven, and can await your deliverance with calm certainty.

(From: The Urantia Book - Paper-137 Section-4)
“We must in all things wait upon the will of the Father in heaven."

(From: Thomas A. Edison (1847 - 1931)
Everything comes to him who hustles while he waits.

(From: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807 - 1882)
Let us, then be up and doing,
With a heart for any fate;
Still achieving, still pursuing,
Learn to labour and to wait.


(From: The Book of Runes - #9 - Defense / Avertive Power / Yew Tree)
Set your house in order, tend to business, be clear, and wait on the Will of Heaven.

(From: Kay Ryan)
Who would have guessed it possible that waiting is sustainable. A place with its own harvest.

(From: The Urantia Book - Paper-140 Section-5)
The poor in spirit seek for goals of spiritual wealth--for God. And such seekers after truth do not have to wait for rewards in a distant future; they are rewarded now. They find the kingdom of heaven within their own hearts, and they experience such happiness now.

Greetings my Beloved Sisters and Brothers, and welcome once again to the Church that is Within.

The Raspberries we grow here were unusually late in ripening this year… 2 weeks later than ever before and this is our 8
th season growing them. Now they are so abundant, it is difficult to keep up with the picking. The past two weeks topics were on, Patience and the Waiting, but both times I had initially intended to use Today's topic. Funny thing is, I forgot all about it and couldn't for the life of me come up with a topic until I finally decided to draw a Rune stone and use whatever came out as the first quote today. Imagine my surprise when I got this one…

The topic of today's Sunday Service, #718, is the Harvest…

********************************************
Quotes
*******
(From: The Book of Runes - #13 - Harvest / Fertile Season / One Year (Jera)

A Rune of beneficial outcomes, Jera applies to any activity or endeavor to which you are committed. Be aware, however, that no quick results can be expected. A span of time is always involved; hence the key words “one year”, symbolizing a full cycle before the reaping, the harvest, or deliverance.

You have prepared the ground and planted the seed. Now you must cultivate with care. To those whose labor has a long season, a long coming to term, Jera offers encouragement of success. Know that the outcome is in the keeping of Providence and continue to persevere.

Remember the old story about the farmer who was so eager to assist his crops that he went out at night and tugged on the new shoots. There is no way to push the river; equally you cannot hasten the harvest. Be mindful that patience is essential for the recognition of your own process, which in its season, leads to the harvest of the self.

(From: Abraham 5/13/96 – the Woods Cross TeaM)
To sow the seeds of love is to reap the harvest of honor for having been trusted by our Father. To feed others with the seeds you have sown is the highest honor and privilege one can receive.

(From: Ellen G. White)
Talk unbelief, and you will have unbelief; but talk faith, and you will have faith. According to the seed sown will be the harvest.

(From: The RSV Bible - James 3:18)
And the harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.

(From: Orison Swett Marden (1850 - 1924)
It is like the seed put in the soil - the more one sows, the greater the harvest.

(From: The ASB Bible - Corinthians II 9:10)
Now He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness; you will be enriched in everything for all liberality, which through us is producing thanksgiving to God.

(From: The Urantia Book - Paper-140 Section-5)
To a child, happiness is the satisfaction of immediate pleasure craving. The adult is willing to sow seeds of self-denial in order to reap subsequent harvests of augmented happiness.

(From: The ASB Bible - John 4:35)
"Do you not say, "There are yet four months, and then comes the harvest'? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look on the fields, that they are white for harvest. "Already he who reaps is receiving wages and is gathering fruit for life eternal; so that he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together.

(From: Edwin Teale)
For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together.
For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad.


(From: The Urantia Book - Paper-151 Section-3)
Jesus said: "Now will I tell you the last of the parable of the sower. I would test you to know how you will receive this: The kingdom of heaven is also like a man who cast good seed upon the earth; and while he slept by night and went about his business by day, the seed sprang up and grew, and although he knew not how it came about, the plant came to fruit. First there was the blade, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear. And then when the grain was ripe, he put forth the sickle, and the harvest was finished. He who has an ear to hear, let him hear."

(From: Elyon - 9/13/98 – The North Idaho TeaM)
The fruiting season is short in the year. If you neglect to harvest the fruit that is available in the season that it is available, then you must wait through winter, spring, the budding of new foliage, the pruning of those limbs that aren't productive of new fruit, and, if you miss the harvest, it will be a season before the harvest is there for you again.

*******************************************
The Sermon
***********
Everyone looks forward to The Harvest. It is after all the goal of all the hard work of preparation and planting and nurturing. At Harvest time, the fruits of all the preparatory labors are right there just waiting to be tasted and enjoyed and shared.

Rarely does one think about how much work is involved in the actual Harvesting while they are doing all the hard work that makes it possible in the first place, or while they are consuming it's produce. But Harvesting is actually the most intensive and demanding work of the whole procedure. The time for it is limited and uncontrollable… it can neither be hurried nor postponed.

This whole process of Growth and Development and Harvest and Reaping of Rewards is Very much like waiting upon the unfolding of God's will in your life. Don't you Think?
