Welcome by: Pastor Daniel
Greetings my Beloved Sisters and Brothers, and welcome once again to the Church that is Within. You are the Temple. You are the Congregation. Any and All Truth is the Gospel. The Divine Spirit within you is your True Minister.

The topic of today's Easter Sunday Service, #858, is Easter of course…

(From: “Jesus” - The Urantia Book - Paper-193 Section-0)
        “And now you should give ear to my words lest you again make the mistake of hearing my teaching with the mind while in your hearts you fail to comprehend the meaning. From the beginning of my sojourn as one of you, I taught you that my one purpose was to reveal my Father in heaven to his children on earth. I have lived the God-revealing bestowal that you might experience the God-knowing career. I have revealed God as your Father in heaven; I have revealed you as the sons of God on earth. It is a fact that God loves you, his sons. By faith in my word this fact becomes an eternal and living truth in your hearts. When, by living faith, you become divinely God-conscious, you are then born of the spirit as children of light and life, even the eternal life wherewith you shall ascend the universe of universes and attain the experience of finding God the Father on Paradise.

(From: Olfana 4/17/95 - Half Moon Bay TeaM)
He showered this world with forgiveness and compassion! He saw, with sinless eyes, the drama unfolding before him. His heart opened to the pain and suffering, the fear and turmoil, that surrounded him in these final moments of his life--and with his compassionate heart, he offered forgiveness to all who sought to see him suffer. His nobility within this tragic drama was remarkable. His kind regard to all who judged him was most amazing. He did not look with anger upon any who condemned him. He saw them as the immature, and struggling, confused Children of God that they were. His focus was upon the Father. He redeemed this world through the power of the Father's Love!

(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: “Jesus” - The Urantia Book - Paper-193 Section-1)
And you will thus love and serve your brother because you, being my brethren, have been thus loved and served by me.

(From - Sr. Joan Chittester, a Roman Catholic, Benedictine nun)
“ The old news about Easter is that it is about the resurrection. The new news may be that it is not so much about the resurrection of Jesus as it is about our own.”

(From: Minister of The Church Within - Judy Girard, 1954-2011)
The resurrection to which Easter calls us is our own. We must prepare to find God wherever and whenever God is. We must be prepared to find God in some very unexpected places. To see God in ways we never expected to, to hear God in words we thought we would never hear and maybe don't want to hear. We must open our hearts to fit around God and stop shrinking God to fit into our puny little hearts and minds. We must release the voice and presence of God. We must let God out of the tomb and into our lives. This demands that we let go of those social phobias, which keep us protected from one another. It means that we will reach out to one another –to everyone—to gays and women and men and immigrants and illegal aliens and prisoners and the poor and blacks and yellows and browns and strangers and children.

(From: “Jesus” - The Urantia Book - Paper-193 Section-1)
        “Peace be upon you. You rejoice to know that I am the resurrection and the life, but this will avail you nothing unless you are first born of the eternal spirit, thereby coming to possess, by faith, the gift of eternal life. If you are the faith sons of my Father, you shall never die; you shall not perish. The gospel of the kingdom has taught you that all men are the sons of God. And this good news concerning the love of the heavenly Father for his children on earth must be carried to all the world. The time has come when you worship God neither on Gerizim nor at Jerusalem, but where you are, as you are, in spirit and in truth. It is your faith that saves your souls. Salvation is the gift of God to all who believe they are his sons.

The Sermon
His Love for You is Unlimited.
His Love Can Heal Your Heart.
His Love Can Strengthen Your Soul.
Let His Love Enter Freely Into Your Life.
Let Your Spirit Resurrect... Let your Spirit Rise!

The Prayer
Dear God,
        Let Your Love Shine Through me.

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

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