Story of the Week
*****************
What was that I heard?
(Author Unknown)

A girl asked a guy if he thought she was pretty, he said...no.

She asked him if he would want to be with her forever....and he said no.

She then asked him if she were to leave would he cry,.......and once again he replied with a no.

She had heard enough. As she walked away, tears streaming down her face

The boy reached out for her arm and said.... You're not pretty you're beautiful.

I don't just want to be with you forever. I am longing to be with you forever.

And I wouldn't cry if you walked away...I'd die.

Pastor's Quote of the Week
************************
In the mind's eye conjure up a picture of one of your primitive ancestors of cave-dwelling times--a short, misshapen, filthy, snarling hulk of a man standing, legs spread, club upraised, breathing hate and animosity as he looks fiercely just ahead. Such a picture hardly depicts the divine dignity of man. But allow us to enlarge the picture. In front of this animated human crouches a saber-toothed tiger. Behind him, a woman and two children. Immediately you recognize that such a picture stands for the beginnings of much that is fine and noble in the human race, but the man is the same in both pictures. Only in the second sketch you are favored with a widened horizon. You therein discern the motivation of this evolving mortal. His attitude becomes praiseworthy because you understand him. If you could only fathom the motives of your associates, how much better you would understand them. If you could only know your fellows, you would eventually fall in love with them.
(From: The Urantia Papers – Paper-100 Section-4)

The Prayer

Dear God,        
        Help us to discern the Truth amid all of the apparent facts.

You ALL are Within the Infinitely Loving Embrace of our Universal Parent,

The Creator's Eternal Love to all of You,
Pastor Daniel
