Humor of the Week
There has been a rumor lately that Fairchild Electronics and Honeywell Computers might be merging. The name of the new company will likely be, Fairwell Honeychild.

Welcome by: Pastor Daniel
Greetings my Beloved Sisters and Brothers, and welcome once again to the Church that is Within.

Well, Happy Easter everyone!

The topic of today's Easter Sunday Service, #596, is Easter?…

(From: The ASB Bible - John 14:2-4 )
"In My Father's house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. "If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also. "And you know the way where I am going."

(From: The Urantia Book - Paper-191 Section-5)
“Your mission to the world is founded on the fact that I lived a God-revealing life among you; on the truth that you and all other men are the sons of God; and it shall consist in the life which you will live among men--the actual and living experience of loving men and serving them, even as I have loved and served you. Let faith reveal your light to the world; let the revelation of truth open the eyes blinded by tradition; let your loving service effectually destroy the prejudice engendered by ignorance. By so drawing close to your fellow men in understanding sympathy and with unselfish devotion, you will lead them into a saving knowledge of the Father's love. The Jews have extolled goodness; the Greeks have exalted beauty; the Hindus preach devotion; the far-away ascetics teach reverence; the Romans demand loyalty; but I require of my disciples life, even a life of loving service for your brothers in the flesh."

(From: The Urantia Book - Paper-194 Section-3)
When man yields the "fruits of the spirit" in his life, he is simply showing forth the traits which the Master manifested in his own earthly life. When Jesus was on earth, he lived his life as one personality--Jesus of Nazareth. As the indwelling spirit of the "new teacher," the Master has, since Pentecost, been able to live his life anew in the experience of every truth-taught believer.
        Many things which happen in the course of a human life are hard to understand, difficult to reconcile with the idea that this is a universe in which truth prevails and in which righteousness triumphs. It so often appears that slander, lies, dishonesty, and unrighteousness--sin--prevail. Does faith, after all, triumph over evil, sin, and iniquity? It does. And the life and death of Jesus are the eternal proof that the truth of goodness and the faith of the spirit-led creature will always be vindicated.

The Prayer
Dear God,
        There are those who say I should fear You, but instead I choose to love You. There are those who say that Your Son died for our sins, but rather I choose to believe that he Lived so as to show us how to avoid sinning. There are those who teach that the most significant thing about Easter is that Jesus, Your Son, rose from the dead… but I choose to value the most Extraordinary thing about Easter as being that he showed us how All of Your Loving Children may one day do the same. Thank you for showing us “The Way, the Truth and the Life.”

The Sermon
Celebrate Easter in whatever way brings you into a closer and more meaningful relationship with your Creator. After all… isn't it less significant what others may believe or what I might believe than what You truly believe in your own Heart and Soul?

and Amen. ;-)

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

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