Humor of the Week
A Sunday school teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with her five and six year olds.
After explaining the commandment to 'honour' thy Father and thy Mother, she asked, 'Is there a commandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?'
Without missing a beat one little boy (the oldest of a family) answered, 'Thou shall not kill.'

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, #702, is (wouldn't you know it), Resurrection…

(From: The Urantia Book - Paper-190 Section-0)
        All this power which is inherent in Jesus--the endowment of life--and which enabled him to rise from the dead, is the very gift of eternal life which he bestows upon kingdom believers, and which even now makes certain their resurrection from the bonds of natural death.

The Sermon
This is the day, Easter Sunday, that those who believe in the Divinity of Jesus Celebrate his Resurrection from his mortal death on the cross. There are many different perceptions as to the true significance of this occurrence, perhaps even as many as there are believers… who's to say with any genuine certainty? Even my own personal perception has altered numerous times over the 56 years of my life.

Now as some of you may have noticed over the years, I don't like to do repeats of past Sunday Services, and thinking of a new topic for the Easter Service presents a bit of a problem in that area, so at first I thought… just give the links to all our past Easter services (no I wouldn't really, it was just a lazy thought ;-). So then I got to thinking that, the whole reason Jesus did all this was for Our personal resurrections, and rather than wait 'till death for the Big one, why not mention personal resurrections that we each can do here on earth while we are still alive. What better Easter Gift could a person give to Jesus after all???

So how about a resurrection of:

Compassion or,

What about a resurrection of:

Personal Dreams or,
Service Projects or,

Maybe even a resurrection of:

Principles or even,

Now I am sure that hardly any of you reading this actually have any need for a personal resurrection of any of these things, or if so maybe only one… or perhaps two or three at most. But hey… I thought I'd mention them all just in case. I've needed resurrections in each of them at one time or another in my life, and I remember at least one instance where I need a resurrection in all of them at the same time. Only you can be the judge of your own needs.

The ball's in your court…

The Prayer
Dear God,
        Please give us all the help we need to accomplish this!

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

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