"A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another."
(The Urantia Papers paper-180 Section-1)
"You well know the commandment which directs that you love one another; that you love your neighbor even as yourself. But I am not wholly satisfied with even that sincere devotion on the part of my children. I would have you perform still greater acts of love in the kingdom of the believing brotherhood. And so I give you this new commandment: That you love one another even as I have loved you. And by this will all men know that you are my disciples if you thus love one another."
What is it about the Master's life that you admire the most?
When I was a child, I was most impressed by the idea that he could do Miracles. Wow! He must really be special if he can do that! Now... the 'fact' of the miracles doesn't mean so much to me. Rather, his reason for them is what I now most admire about him. He had compassion for people, he genuinely loved them. His miracles served others... rather than himself. He was always in Service.
When I was a youth, I was most impressed with the idea that he died for my sins. I can no longer imagine that the 'fact' of Jesus' death could in any way make me any less responsible for choosing to sin. Now, I most admire the way he faced that death... his absence of fear, his courage and how he unfailingly continued to give love even throughout his torture. To the repentant thief he showed love and compassion in the midst of his agony. Of those who were killing him, he said "Forgive them Father for they know not what they do." Now That, to me, is pretty impressive.
When I was a teen, I was most impressed with the idea that Jesus would forgive ME... no matter what... if I was wholeheartedly sincere in my repentance. Now THAT is Love! I still fully admire that, as is, with no further comment on it.
Now that I have become an adult, I am most impressed with the message that Jesus gave to people by his actions. He Forgave and Loved even His enemies. He was Compassionate and Loved all who were in physical and spiritual need. He Loved as a Parent Loves their Child.
As impossible as it may seem at times to do and as imperfect as each of us may be at doing it... Let us in each moment try as hard as we can to forgive... be compassionate... to Love as a Parent Loves in order that we may obey "...this new commandment: That you love one another even as I have loved you. And by this will all men know that you are my disciples if you thus love one another."
Help me to be more and more like you with the passing of each and every moment that I exist. Show me how to love as You Love. I can think of nothing more that I would pray for today... AMEN.
Father's Eternal Parental Love,

So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you? Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet. For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you. Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him. If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.
(The Urantia Papers - Paper 179, Section 3)
"Do you really understand what I have done to you? You call me Master, and you say well, for so I am. If, then, the Master has washed your feet, why was it that you were unwilling to wash one another's feet? What lesson should you learn from this parable in which the Master so willingly does that service which his brethren were unwilling to do for one another? Verily, verily, I say to you: A servant is not greater than his master; neither is one who is sent greater than he who sends him. You have seen the way of service in my life among you, and blessed are you who will have the gracious courage so to serve.
To some, Service is sharing "the Word". To others, Service would be giving money or financial support to a "Cause" that they believe in. And still others would Serve by going out and personally doing things for those whom they perceive to be in need. Some would choose to Serve the individual. Some would rather Serve the group. Some prefer to give Service in passing. Others prefer to plan, organize and do Service Projects.
Which of these is the "Right" way to Serve?
Whichever it is that you do unselfishly.
Are any of these ways the wrong way to Serve?
Not if you Serve out of Love for another.
When we choose to Serve unselfishly... in truth it is a service to our Creator. "In as much as you did it to one of the least of my brethren, you did it to me." If we could but learn to always see that fragment of the Divine within others, how much easier it would be to love and to serve them. Do we truly look? I myself do not look nearly as often as I could... as often as I should. It is not that I do not wish to, so much as that I too often let the things of this world get in the way and I *forget* to look.
If only I would be more like the "little child". Children see the good in everything because that is all that they know to look for until taught otherwise Ever notice how a little child has a way of seeing the good in the most cantankerous of individuals when given but the barest minimum of opportunity to do so? That is how I would be if I had my "druthers"... how about you?
I think it is time that I, as Picard would say: "Make it so."
Dearest God, Infinite and Eternal Source of all, Parent of my Soul,
Help me to remember that You are in ALL, and that whatsoever I do for them I do for You. And also, help me to remember that when I do something to make the world a more beautiful and healthier place for Your children to live and grow and learn, I do that also for You... that whatever way I or any other may choose to Serve, in fact it is You that we serve.
So many Gifts have You given! Let me in turn give to You in the only way that I truly can... let me Serve Your Children by sharing with them that which You have given to me.
"I will to do Your Will."
Father's Eternal Parental Love,

"And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you."
"For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith."
What is it?
I believe... that FAITH is a Way of Life. FAITH, to me, is not what I believe... but what I live of what I believe. FAITH transforms Beliefs into Reality only because FAITH is Active... FAITH does not stand still...
What can it really do?
FAITH is what makes us go on in the face of disaster... FAITH turns defeat into Victory. FAITH finds Love always... often in unexpected places. FAITH... it can Move You... to Move mountains.
"Your Faith has saved you"; "Your Faith has made you whole"
Two pretty famous quotes... wouldn't you say? Not... your belief has saved you---Not... your belief has made you whole... but your FAITH. FAITH has power because it causes us to act.
What is it that sculpts your way of life? What is it that helps you to decide what action to take every time you have a choice. It is what Saves you... it is what makes you Whole... It is Your Faith. What is it that You have FAITH in?
Far too many on this world put their faith in money or material gain as if they feel that it will satisfy them... it Never does. The most Magnificent residence... the most exquisite transportation... the most Toys... Is it Ever enough? Does it Ever Satisfy? Does it ever make them feel Complete? No... not really.
Far too many on this world put their faith in a Book... but forget to open it into the pages of their life. There is much Beauty in words. Words intellectually define Beliefs. Words help us to gain knowledge... and to discover new ways of thinking. But it is FAITH that puts it all to use... it is FAITH that provides a new way of Living.
The measure of FAITH is in how well one truly Lives that which they Profess to Believe.
Dearest God, Infinite and Eternal Source of all, Parent of my Soul,
Help me to have Faith in Your constant Love... Help me to have Faith in Your constant Presence... Help me to have the Faith that I am Your Child. Help me to move the Mountain of my incompletion: one
boulder... one rock... one pebble... one grain of sand at a time. Strengthen and mold and guide my Faith dear Lord... cause I ain't stoppin' 'till I'm just Like You! Give me the Faith to know that You will wait that long.
Father's Eternal Parental Love,

This Week's Service
Pastor Daniel Joseph Megow and Ministers Jill Poole and Sheila Burgher
Live from Camp Gifford on Deerlake at the Northwest Teaching Mission Conference
(Transcribed from the Tape of the Service for the Internet)
Opening Prayer (By: Minister Sheila Burgher)
Well Father, here we are, your children. And Father, we're really kind of little. And Father, sometimes on this planet we feel fear, even though you told us, "Fear not, children." Please forgive us for this. I know you will. And Father, sometimes on this planet we become angry at your children, our brothers and sisters, even though we know You dwell within them, this is something we cannot help at times, and we ask you, please forgive us. And I know you will. And Father, sometimes we look in the mirror and we don't like what we see, even though we know it is You who dwells within us. And we ask you, please forgive us. I know you will. Father, please bless each and every one of us this morning. Guide us through our day. Help us get home safely. Help us be what You would have us to be.
I've been starting the Sunday Services with a quote. Sometimes I quote out of the Bible and sometimes I quote out of the Urantia Book, and sometimes I quote both to do a cross-reference to show the similarity, and sometimes I'll quote something from Albert Einstein because I like it, or something from Zen or The Tao, or wherever. Today, this one kind of hit me so I decided to start with this. It says,
(The Urantia Papers- Paper 146 Section 3)
"While you cannot observe the divine spirit at work in your minds, there is a practical method of discovering the degree to which you have yielded the control of your soul powers to the teaching and guidance of this indwelling spirit of the heavenly Father, and that is the degree of your love for your fellow men. This spirit of the Father partakes of the love of the Father, and as it dominates man, it unfailingly leads in the directions of divine worship and loving regard for one's fellows. At first you believe that you are sons of God because my teaching has made you more conscious of the inner leadings of our Father's indwelling presence; but presently the Spirit of Truth shall be poured out upon all flesh, and it will live among men and teach all men, even as I now live among you and speak to you the words of truth. And this Spirit of Truth, speaking for the spiritual endowments of your souls, will help you to know that you are the sons of God. It will unfailingly bear witness with the Father's indwelling presence, your spirit, then dwelling in all men as it now dwells in some, telling you that you are in reality the sons of God.
"Every earth child who follows the leading of this spirit shall eventually know the will of God, and he who surrenders to the will of my Father shall abide forever. The way from the earth life to the
eternal estate has not been made plain to you, but there is a way, there always has been, and I have come to make that way new and living. He who enters the kingdom has eternal life already-- he shall
never perish. But much of this you will the better understand when I shall have returned to the Father and you are able to view your present experiences in retrospect."
That kind of seems how it is for all of us, all the time, when we are who we are. When we're being our soul self. When we're just allowing the Father to flow right us to other people. We always have to look at that in hindsight, in retrospect, and see where we are. See where we've been. These gatherings are a wonderful place to get people together to get in touch with who they are, with their soul. It's an opportunity to reach into somebody else and to allow them to reach into you. To really see who you are inside.
From my observations and from my own personal experience, coming to this particular conference was different than any of the other ones. I was excited about it, but there was a certain amount of pain and I didn't know where that pain was coming from. And in just about every eye I've seen a little bit of pain mixed in with the joy of everybody being here. There's been a lot go on this year. A lot of very difficult paths, things that we don't know if we're ready for, yet its like we're getting a kick in the behind to "Go!". The teachers always seem to be pushing. God within always seems to be giving that little nudge to get you moving.
Of all the people here, I've noticed that there is not one person who came to this gathering who is not a very, very excellent artist. Everyone of us has an art inside, a gift that God has given to us. We look at art as paintings, as sculptures, as music, as poetry. It's as much a look in the eye... it's as much as putting your arm around somebody else and sharing who you are; sharing who you see God to be. That's an art. Going into your soul and just being free, just letting it out. That's an art. God gives each one of us a gift. He gives each one of us many, many gifts. It's our job here to discover each one of them. Sometimes we'll find one and we'll kind of stick to that and go, "Yeah, this is my gift. This is what God gave me. This is really wonderful." And it is. There's things that we can do without thinking about. It just happens naturally. It comes out of us. And then there's others that until we search around and look, we don't even know that they're there. There's gifts that just sometimes surprise us. "Well, where'd that come from? I didn't know I could do that," or "I didn't know I could feel that way."
That's kind of what it's seemed like for me with the journey over the past few years. In the beginning, we sit around and go, "Hey, tell us what to do. We want to know what to do." Ya know, "We want to do something. Let's go. Come on." And now they're saying, "OK! let's go!" and we're going, "OK! Tell us what to do!" And they're saying, "Go!" And we go, "OK, we will. Tell us what to do!"
It's easy to want them to tell us every single step to take. You know, should I put my foot in front of me, or maybe behind me this time. It's always, "Put your foot in front of you." And as soon as you take that step, and as soon as you get beyond where you can stop; you're on your way toward the next step, then they put your foot where it should go. They say, "Yeah. Put your step forward, and it will be guided. You'll go where you need to."
Faith is a pretty incredible thing. Faith is that thing that allows you to take the step and go past the point of no return to where you're going to fall down if you don't let your foot catch you. Belief is knowing that if you do put the foot out, that it will catch ya. But it takes faith to actually go beyond just standing in one place. There is a lot of faith in the people I've met here this week-end. Real deep. Nobody knows so much where exactly its taking them, but yet they're still taking those steps. They're still walking, and much is being accomplished. In the past two years, the changes that I've seen---absolutely incredible. People are actually stepping out and sharing. Sharing God. Sharing Love, where they might not have ever thought of doing that before. Instead of keeping it in here and trying to hold on to it, its going to other people. It's changing the world, one person at a time. If there's a hundred doing it, then its a hundred people at a time. If there's 200 of us... it just keeps on going. You share one piece of God's love with another person and it goes beyond your wildest dreams of where you can imagine that it could have gone.
We don't know what power we have as God's children. Once we recognize that we're that, all we have to do is share God. Share His love that we feel in our own souls. There is no more. Its just a constant learning, a constant discovery, a constant wonder at what it is that He has to show us.
For today I'll just let us think on that. I know each of you has made a conscious commitment to do God's will as you know it. Let's continue to discover what that is each moment. Just go on and allow Him to reveal Himself through us. We'll be part of The Supreme. We'll let The Supreme be an expression. We'll let Jesus be an expression, because each one of us is also his child.
Well, I'm not really here to tell you what you should do. I think that's where you go within and find out what you're supposed to do. But I can share with you what I've been doing for the last three
years. I began to understand that the eye contact thing, through all of these teaching lessons, that it was time to start putting them into action. I was beginning to understand that just by doing the eye contact or hand on the shoulder, that I could actually have an effect on people. So, I took this opportunity to find out if it really did work and I started hanging around downtown Spokane with the street kids and the homeless. Through a friend I came in contact with an apartment building that was full of people who were either poor, old, sick or crazy. By the way, uh, last year I moved into that apartment building and I'll let you judge which category I fit in.
Well, I'll be darned if it didn't work. You know those street kids. You know, they're just there because its not happy at home. And when I first got down there, I observed---you know---they asked for money, from everybody. "Do you have spare change?" You know, they're hungry, but they don't want to go home to have breakfast, or lunch, or dinner. It's better to be downtown---if you can imagine that.
And I noticed that a lot of people, as soon as the kids asked for change, they'd take this attitude. You know, call them names or give them a lecture. Observe the way they were dressed and really put them down. Well, I began to look at these children in their eyes and I started feeling real compassion for them. And they would ask me, "Mam, do you have any change?" Well, I had already come to the point where I realized that it was not my responsibility to give them change, because I didn't have it. So I didn't feel guilty about that. I didn't feel bad about it. I knew what my real responsibility was, was to give them love. That is what Father said to me. "Your only true responsibility is to show them love." And I would look at them in the eyes and I would say, "No, hon. I'm sorry. I don't. I don't have any spare change." And you know what they always say to me? "Well, thank you, mam. Have a good day." I got a gift! They wished me a good day. And I received it! I had a good day.
The homeless people. They're dirty and their clothes don't match. And some people call them names and they have no compassion for them, whatsoever. If I've got extra food, I take it to them. They're just hungry. If I've got clothes, I give it to them. They're cold! If I don't have anything to give, I look at them in the eye, and I say, "Man, you're a great guy. I hope you have a great day." That was my gift. And they look at me back and they always have something sweet to say. It's the gift in return, because I spoke to them, not to their situation. I always get a gift back. For the last three years, every day I have received a gift back from these people who are titled by their situation and not who they really are.
In this apartment building I've gotten quite close to a couple of people who have been labeled schizophrenic. I don't know if you all know what that means, but I've become quite close with them, and they've come to my dining room table, and they've told me, "I hear voices in my head." (Sheila chuckles) And being the very groovy chick that I am, I'd say, "No shit! Whadja do about it?" Well, because of their unfortunate circumstances---one girl in her young teenage years had kerosene poured upon her and was caught on fire---and in later years she was thrown out of her church which she valued as her base. Another one, he was told that he was not worthy of hearing the voice of God and that he was crazy. And because of this fear-based factor and the anger and the alcohol and the drugs that preceded all this, the voices were distorted, and these voices scared him. And these voices told him things that cause great fear in him. And this about broke my heart.
I hear voices in my head and they're nothing but love and kindness, and guidance. Now these people are induced with so much drugs through the mental health program that they can no longer read. They can't comprehend. If they could, this (holding up The Urantia Book) is what I'd give them, so that they could understand what those voices were trying to say to them. So that they could understand why it was possible to hear the voices and what a gift it was. If they weren't so induced with the drugs that they're taking, we could sit around and talk about The Teaching Mission. Unfortunately, I would have been labeled schizophrenic and they would have tried to induce me with drugs, and then I would have been distorted, and I had to be the leader.
So, I've been able to help these people by giving them books on tape, acknowledging them for who they really are. I tell them right from the start, please forgive me but I do not identify you with what mental health has labeled you with. I only see you as a child of God. And our Father in Heaven sees you as perfection and this is how I will see you. And I talk with this people just like I talk with you. And this gave them quite a bit of comfort because nobody has given them much credit for being who they are. In fact, they've been discredited greatly. So, I never have told them that I hear voices.
But what I did was, every week when I would get these lessons, I would share with them the story or the lesson that I received. Like I said yesterday, even the most advanced lesson can be given to anyone, and that's what I thought I was here to do. That was the main point, to share the lesson. I've had a lot of interaction with them. I've seen them start to stand on their own two feet. They still take the drugs. This is going to probably continue. But I think I have helped create pride as to who they are. I think I've begun to allow them to accept the greatness of who they are. The people at the apartment, the street kids, the homeless. And all of this has been done because I said, "Our Father in Heaven sees you as perfection and this is how I will see you from now on."
I've learned about judgment. I've learned a great deal about compassion. Acceptance. And I think I walk around the streets of Spokane now lit up. I think they notice my light without really knowing it. And I'm very well accepted down there, and that is the gift in return. I'm very grateful for this opportunity that I've had for three years now. The lessons I've learned. I've been able to take the lessons from The Teaching Mission and apply them. I think that made a big difference. It's great to listen to them and it's great to read them, but do you have an opportunity to actually apply them? And that was at one point pointed out to me as a very necessary step in my growth. So, for the last three years I've been truly, truly blessed. I've had to learn how to not expect results. I've also learned how to receive. That's a big thing. We pray for things. We give gifts. But, are we always ready to receive? And do we think a gift has to come in a pretty package? It doesn't. You know, "Have a good day, mam." That is a gift, and I accepted it, and I've had some really good days, just day after day after day!
That is my message. I'm sure you've caught my drift. It is by my example that I hope I make the most effect. That has been in the lessons over and over again, "It is by your example." I place myself in "example mode" and ask the Father every day, "Father, please show me what you would have me to do today," and we have this pact: they'll either knock on my door, call on the phone. And it works. And now I think I've become a pretty good example setter and in return I've received gifts of love, gifts of acknowledgment, and gifts of having a real good day. And I like having real good days.
Thank you for being here. I love you all.
This is my first time in front of a microphone, so its quite an experience. Its my first time speaking in front of my brothers and sisters who radiate light and love to me and I am finding it very peaceful and exciting, instead of frightening. There is no fear. There is just total joy.
Two weeks ago while Daniel was doing his computer Service, I was sitting at the kitchen table drinking coffee, and spirit gave me some ideas for today. I wrote down some notes in a very scribbled fashion (holding them up). As you can see, I'm not a real neat writer, and I haven't looked at them since. But I believe they are in my heart and I believe they are inspiring for all of us. That same week-end my sister called and wanted to share a little perception with me. So, inside your Sunday booklet you have a little bookmark to take home that reminds you of our Teaching Mission Conference this year, and on it there are the words: no where. And below that in larger letters, NOW HERE.
Look at those two words a moment. What is the difference between them? It is the shift of one letter. One simple shift and you go from nothing to everything. You go from being no where, to now here. One with the Presence. One with God. Truth, Beauty, and Goodness in action when you are NOW HERE with your full consciousness in each given moment that you are alive and vibrant.
We have our past. Its a part of who we are. We have our future dreams---that which we look forward to---and if we did not have dreams we would be "no where." But the dreams can only happen if we act in the NOW. NOW is the only place where action takes place. Everything in the past was a NOW and we took action, and it brought us to our present NOW. I think each person probably in this room has had moments when they have felt they were no where, that they were lost, that they did not know where to turn. And I suspect that each one of you in that moment eventually turned to God, to Father. And when you had those moments of silence, you were in the NOW. And I suspect you felt a peace that may have even confounded you because you had been so consumed with the emptiness. But the peace of God when we let Him into each NOW moment gives us that completeness that Harry spoke of yesterday. Gives us that Oneness. And I believe that being conscious of the power we have in each NOW moment is the true gift of God---for us to realize that we may be His instrument of love---we don't have to plan our day. We don't have to plan to be glorious, to be wonderful, to be super. We simply have to be our unique expression of love at every single opportunity as it crosses our path. Its so simple and it makes life so vibrant. And each moment that you have your consciousness in this unconditional love, you grow and the person whom you make eye contact with, and they in turn shine Father's Light right back into your eyes, and then you know you are even greater than you believed you were with the love that was flowing through you.
So I would like to encourage all of you to recognize that you are God's unique expression. Everyone walking this earth is God's unique expression. Let us, each time we contact one another, be that uniqueness that each of us will know an even greater aspect of All He Is. And that love will propel us forward, and as we practice it--- which is another message we received this weekend---it becomes so automatic that it will change our world. We will know no other way to be, except Love. But many have not experienced much love through persons yet, and that is why we must be leaders. Each of us in this room has come to know Father personally. Let us share that, that others will also find their personal relationship with Our Father. I believe that is how we can be the greatest leader in our own way and truly transform this world, in our lifetime. Love is infinite power. Love is infinite mercy. Its infinite compassion. The Original Thought combined with The Original Word into The Original Action (Deed). We are the action pieces on the world of God's unfolding plan. Let us be who we are and truly grow in our ability to love as His instruments.
As you take your journey home, as you meet strangers on the street, as you stop for lunch some place, don't be afraid to make that eye contact with the person coming out the door; with the waitress at the table. Even kind of glance over at that cook way up there with the silver tray turning around with a hundred orders on it. Give a little Light. It will make their day. Its not what we say nearly as much as what we do for one another. Go out and share your beautiful, unique expression of Love and know that whoever you touch will touch 10 others, and those 10 others will touch 10 others, and in our lifetime we will know the consciousness of love in our society, not just behind the doors of our own home.
The Closing Prayer
Thank you. Thank you for being our dad. Thank you for allowing us to make our mistakes and to grow, and to learn to love, to learn to discover You. Help us to be the mirror by which others around us may see Your reflection in themselves. And help us also to see Your reflection in the mirror that others show to us.
God's Eternal Parental love,
and Ministers Sheila and Jill

"If you chase along after phrases and get muddled up in words, you're no better off than a man who loses his sword over the side of a ship and then marks the spot where it fell in on the railing."
( from Teachings of Zen Master Bankei )
Words are incredible tools! They can be used to define... to ponder... to express... to record... to speculate about... The Experience of Life. Yet, words have no life of their own. They are meaningless without someone to say or to hear them... to write or to read them... to think of and express them.
What is God's Word? Many will tell you that it is this writing or that one. Can God's Word be fully and unerringly recorded on the paper of Mankind? I don't THINK so! God's Word can only be recorded with any dependable accuracy upon the tablet of your Soul. God's Word is ever Alive... ever in Motion... ever in the process of revelation to our limited human understanding. Words on a page are but paper and ink. They have value only in so far as they are experienced and understood by someone.
Any who would say that THIS or THAT alone is God's Word, sets limits on their own ability to discover God's Infinite Reality. God reveals His/Her Word continuously... in each and every moment... to ALL who will listen.
God is Good... God is Love. There is no Goodness, no Love, that does not originate in the Divine Source. ALL that promotes Goodness and Love is a revelation of God's Word.
Does a wise parent speak to their infant child in college words and expect the babe to understand? No. A wise parent tries to choose words that the little one can comprehend and then gradually introduces new words and concepts as the child's understanding grows. And when that child has grown, will the wise parent use baby talk to reveal the higher understanding of adulthood to them? No. Because a wise parent will recognize the limitations of infant language in expressing higher concepts to one who has the ability to understand adult language.
Do you consider God to be a Wise Parent?
Whether we be spiritual infants, toddlers, young children, teens or adults... Our Divine Parent is continually attempting to reveal to us the Divine Word. Let us each continually grow in our ability and desire to discern it... and at the same time, let us refrain from judging others in their own learning process.
The most incredible book I ever read was my first grade reader... for it taught me how to read. Today it does not satisfy my desire to read as it did then... but always will I appreciate it for what I learned from it.
We are Divinely cherished for exactly Who and What and Where we are at every moment of our existence.
Dearest, Infinite and Eternal Source of all, Parent of my Soul,
Let me never cease to grow in my understanding of You. Let Your Word ever be continually revealed in my Heart and in my Soul and in my Life. Help me to be a lamp whereby Your Light may shine.
Father's Eternal Parental Love,
