Story of the Week
The Indian Legend of Human Divinity
(Author Unknown)

There was once a time when all human beings were Gods. But they so abused their power that Brahma, the chief God, decided to take it away and hide it somewhere it could not be found.

But where? Brahma called a council of the Gods to help him decide.

"Let's bury it deep in the earth," said the Gods.

"No, that will not do because humans will dig into the earth and find it," answered Brahma.

"Let's sink it in the deepest ocean".

"No, not there, for they will learn to dive into the ocean and will find it," said Brahma.

"Let's take it to the top of the highest mountain and hide it there."

But once again Brahma replied, "No, that will not do either, because they will eventually climb every mountain."

Giving up, the Gods replied, "We do not know where to hide it, because it seems that there is no place in existence that humans will not eventually reach."

Brahma thought for a long time, then said, "Here is what we will do. We will hide their divinity deep in the center of their own being, for humans will never think to look for it there."

The Gods agreed that this was the perfect hiding place, and the deed was done. And since that time humans have been going all over the earth -- digging, diving, climbing, and exploring -- searching for some secret power already within themselves.

So, like most people, you might feel as if you're searching in all the wrong places for what you really want... Peace, love, wealth, joy, success. Yet, the truth is, it all comes from within... From your own inner divinity.

Pastor's Quote of the Week
There is surely a piece of divinity in us, something that was before the elements, and owes no homage unto the sun.

(From: Sir Thomas Browne (1605 - 1682 )

The Prayer
Dear God,        
        Why do so many of us fear to see You within our own selves and within others? Is it because we would then no longer be able to hide? We are but little children hiding our eyes behind our hands and thinking that we can then not be seen. How very cute of us. ;-)

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

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