Welcome to you, in Jesus Christ our Lord.
Invocation - Inviting the Lord to be with us here.


O Lord, we know that You are everywhere,
And nothing happens that You cannot see,
But even so, we pray that You will come
And join with us directly at this time.
We now will offer up our praise to You,
And we do much desire to have You here.
In Jesus' holy name we pray, Amen.

The Lord's Prayer

The Lord, Himself, taught us to pray like this . . .


The Lord's Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy Name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever. Amen.

Today's Featured Segment . . .
God's One Rule For All Situations: "TREAT OTHERS AS YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE
TREATED"
This rule is known as "The Golden Rule." It is found in most religions,
yet it establishes no particular religion; it leads to harmony among all
people; it is the foundation of Democracy; and it leads to the political
goal of "Greatest Good For The Greatest Number, With Basic Rights For
All."

To apply the Golden Rule, simply ask yourself "How would you like to be
treated in similar circumstances?" Then treat the other person that way.
Also consider the impact of your actions on all other people, not only
those immediately before you.

If you need help in applying the Golden Rule to your particular situation,
please visit Golden Rule Solutions at
http://www.loveallpeople.org/goldenrulesolutions.html

Some Version Of the Golden Rule Is Found In Most Religions
These versions can be categorized as "inclusive" vs. "selective," and
"complete" vs. "partial."
Inclusive vs. Selective The inclusive versions of the Golden Rule apply to
all people everywhere. The selective versions apply only to some people,
such as your neighbors or your countrymen or your religious brothers.

Complete vs. Partial The complete versions of the Golden Rule call for you
to treat the other person as if he were yourself: to do the good things to
him you would like done to you; and to not do the bad things you would not
like to done to you. So you would not steal from him, and you would try to
help him if he needed help. The partial versions of the Golden Rule call
for you merely to not do the bad things you would not like done to you. So
you would not steal from him, but you would not be required to help him if
he needed help.


Versions Of The Golden Rule In Different Religions
_________________________________________________________________

HINDU: This is the sum of duty; do naught unto others which if done
to
thee would cause thee pain. (inclusive, partial)

ZOROASTRIAN: That nature alone is good which refrains from doing unto
another whatsoever is not good for itself. (inclusive, partial)

BUDDHIST: Hurt not others in ways that you would find hurtful.
(inclusive, partial)

CONFUCIAN: Do not unto others what you would not have them do unto
you. (inclusive, partial)

all creatures as we regard our own self. (inclusive, complete)

(inclusive, partial)

CHRISTIAN: All things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you,
do ye even so to them. (inclusive, complete)

ISLAMIC: No one of you is a believer until he desires for his brother
that which he desires for himself. (selective, complete)
