Story of the Week
*****************
Good Karma
(By: The Dalai Lama)

Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

When you lose, don't lose the lesson.

Follow the three R's:
--Respect for Self
--Respect for Others
--Responsibility for all your actions

Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.

Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly.

Don't let a little dispute injure a great relationship.

When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

Spend some time alone every day.

Open your arms to change, but don't give up your values.

Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

Live a good, honorable life. Then, when you get older and think back, you'll be able to enjoy it a second time.

A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life.

In disagreements with loved ones, deal only with the current situation. Don't bring up the past.

Share your knowledge. It is a way to achieve immortality.

Be gentle with the Earth.

Once a year, go someplace you've never been before.

Remember, the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.

Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.

Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon.

Pastor's Quote of the Week
************************
        God is inherently kind, naturally compassionate, and everlastingly merciful. And never is it necessary that any influence be brought to bear upon the Father to call forth his loving-kindness. The creature's need is wholly sufficient to insure the full flow of the Father's tender mercies and his saving grace. Since God knows all about his children, it is easy for him to forgive. The better man understands his neighbor, the easier it will be to forgive him, even to love him.

(From: The Urantia Book - Paper-2 Section-4)

The Prayer
***********
Dear God,        
        It's all about Love, Isn't it?

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

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