Topic: Feed My Flock
Group: Snow Mountain Conference
Saturday Night Session
Abraham: My greeting to you my brothers and sisters. It is my privilege to be with you here on this memorable occasion. I am quite honored to witness the Father's children if effort to promote truth, beauty, and goodness on this world.
The Master once asked His apostles, "Do you love me?" Upon receiving the apostles answer, Jesus said, "Then serve my children, feeding my flock." My friends gathered here today I would once again, put this question before you; the Master would ask do you love me? then feed my flock.
We have spent many long hours in promoting the goals of our mission to train you as individuals and assist you in bringing the good news to others. I have no doubt of your answer to the Master, and I know you are firmly committed to bringing about the brotherhood on Urantia. Love in action is nothing more than the brotherhood. Said Jesus, "Love not your fellows as you love yourselves, love your fellows as I have loved you, with a fatherly affection. A father loves his child without want of anything in return. A father would be ever mindful of leading a child to complete truth. A father is committed regardless of the acts of his unknowing children. Therefore I say love your fellows as the master loves you. Know this that the basic goal that mortals attempt to attain is plain and simple love and acceptance.
Each mortal is on common ground with the Master. Be you of human and divine. It is known by us who watch from on high how you strive towards that divine self. Your efforts are understood and commendable. I would say that each time you gather there is an exercise of steering your human self toward the divine. What better way to learn to steer towards the divine than through the brotherhood. Working with on another brings many trials and tests of patience and tolerance. Your dedication to 'love one another as the Master loves' you assists you in understanding the brotherhood. To love one another with a real affection is to have understanding of one another, to gain more patience and tolerance, to end most of the struggle with the spirit poisons.
We on this teaching staff are this time teaching self-mastery combined with the brotherhood. We have hoped that these days spent in fellowship would bring about a unified commitment to the brotherhood, to serving one another truthfully with love.
This gathering has, indeed, been a great test of caring regardless of... or agendas... It is a grand...This is the wellness. This is what you have prayed for....to take our challenge to serve your fellow, feed the flock.
In the wellness of life there a lot of lives, your families, your children, your job, your relationships, your environment. This is the wellness. This is where you find truly the Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of Man. I would ask you to be conscious of Michael's presence now that He is in complete understanding in your efforts to steer heavenward.
I understand that there are several of you with questions, and I will endeavor to answer you.
Ham: You, son, have already [given] your life over into our Father's hands. You are walking carefully, and this is as it should be. You have experienced and seen others crash by the roadside, and are careful to avoid those hair pin turns at high speed. You have received confirmation of your apostleship and understand the hardships and sacrifice required. However, you're waiting and listening to gain understanding of where to go. This...understanding will be given to you. Be at ease and at rest in your heart. All is well. And is as it should be. That is all.
Q2: Ham, This is Ellena. [[[Gratitude]] expressed for Ham's help.]
Ham: Ellena, daughter you are a beloved child of...Father who is always and ever aware of every slightest thought you give toward Him...Every hair upon your precious head is numbered. He knows your every desire and every fear. You are safe in His arms, and there is no yesterday or no tomorrow that can ever alter this...
Ham: Certainly. All of you have had to be self-revealing, self-understanding, self tolerance, self aware, in order to begin the process of breaking away the dead shells that hold you... There are many ways to do this work, many paths, many trials and many errors for you all to experience.
We with the teachers can only give you suggestions and sometimes directions to look for the preciousness within. Be of good cheer. You have truly been a... of light to those who know you. There is no wrong way or right way to self discovery, only individual ways. That is all. It that helping?
Ham: Once again, I am not in the business of directing decisions that have to do [with you] personally. Everyone has their own tasks to do, and no two are alike. Each one of you is destined to take the seed of truth out into the world and plant your own tree. Community is everywhere, everything. Community is all of your relationships, all of your interactions with everyone, all the time. We would encourage community expansion, and our love and encouragement to all in all of your endeavors.

Ham: Sexes are similar and yet also quite different in their interpretations of experience. Women are much more easily giving now, and have, for this reason, largely been the spiritual standard bearers of your race. The male is more apt to exist in a planning mode and the concern with the long term future. Women are not shortsighted but more concerned with immediate results and immediate comfort. Always will there exist some misunderstandings and incomprehension between the sexes. Because of this, different attitudes...
Ham: Yes, correct to the first question, and yes, Abraham is still the overseer of the entire reserve corp.
Ham: You have always been the rock which has given anchor and shelter and comfort to...you know. Always you have extended your welcoming love to anyone who has sought it, and there have been many. You have done, unknowingly,... of your role model of many women who have been abused or frightened. Daughter you're service is constant, and you steadfastness is severe. You are beloved and valued by a host of beings. Never doubt that you have served and are serving and will grow into even greater in your illustrious service.
Ham: . ..children of the most high, you have shown great love in you dedication to our collective work. Praise is upon you from the Most Highs, and even from Michael Himself who sees all and knows all.
Ham: You have truly embarked on a life dedicated service and unselfish ministry. Your hands are always open to give to all of God's creatures, even His, tiny birds. Do not be discouraged or concerned if not every creatures takes what you have offered. Be exceedingly glad. Have faith in our Father that He will hold you and not let you stumble or fall. That is all.
Ham: Daughter, you have been [climbing?] to truth and have sought goodness and beauty all your life. There is no obstacle that will take you from further progress, though there are, as with everyone, always another step to go. Have courage and faith for you are a truly tenacious seeker who will never let go. Be of good cheer and of light heart, for you are where you should be. You are receiving what you need, and you will progress finely.
Ham: The Teaching Mission has just been through a pruning. And is already [for] fresh water, sunshine, and even fertilizer before it will spring into great blossom.
Ham: Names are not for you to be concerned about. These things are in the hands of seraphim and a host of spiritual beings. You will all be heartened and happy to see this great...base is acceptable at this time.
Ham: I have watched your progress some and am very heartened and happy with understanding your great strides. Your are correct and your are making good progress in communicating with your teacher. And so I cannot interfere with this relationship and must defer... Be not concerned with every little pebble in the path way. There are rocks enough to step over in your future.
Ham: Understand that your entire lives are your task. Your every action, your every thought reverberates in the Supreme Being. You are experiencing joy and love and excited peace which has always been with you in the past.
