Welcome

Greetings my Dearest Sisters and Brothers, and welcome again to Church Within's Story of the Week ["SOW Seeds”].

Well I'm back from my short trip to San Diego and things are starting to get back to normal…

Is that a Good thing? ;-)

Waves Of Worry
(By: Adrian Dieleman)

Several years ago, a submarine was being tested and had to remain submerged for many hours. When it returned to the harbor, the captain was asked, "How did the terrible storm last night affect you?"

The officer looked at him in surprise and exclaimed, "Storm? We didn't even know there was one!"

The sub had been so far beneath the surface that it had reached the area known to sailors as "the cushion of the sea." Although the ocean may be whipped into huge waves by high winds, the waters below are never stirred.

This, I believe, is a perfect picture of the peace that comes from God's Spirit. The waves of worry, of fear, of heartbreak, cannot touch those resting in God. Sheltered by His grace and encouraged by His Spirit, the believer is given the perfect tranquility that only God can provide.

Pastor's Quote of the Week
************************
        "Be not deceived by those who come saying here is the kingdom or there is the kingdom, for my Father's kingdom concerns not things visible and material. And this kingdom is even now among you, for where the spirit of God teaches and leads the soul of man, there in reality is the kingdom of heaven. And this kingdom of God is righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.”

(From: “Jesus” - The Urantia Book - Paper-137 Section-8)

The Prayer

Dear God,        
        When I acknowledge and embrace Your Loving Presence, my Peace is unassailable.

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

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