Editor of Advance The Birth of Jesus Text: Luke 2:8-20 Tlie story of the birth nf Jesus is it least, one story that never grows old. Each succeeding generation tells to it.s children the story of the .sheporcis in the field, and the glory that shone round (hern as the angel came announcing the birth of the Babe of Bethlehem. It is a story for children, a story that has above nil others emphasized to the world the value of the child and the romance of the newborn Bpbe. But it is much more than a story to tell and to teach to children. It is a story for adults, and for those of all ages. It is the story of the birth of a Savior, of the coming into the world of one who revealed divinity in hum..n form, and who brought into the realm of human words and action nil that is highest. It is in Jesus of Na/areth that God and man meet. Human life has reveals *ed'nothing higher or belter than tli'i life that came into the world with the birth of the Babe in the manger Jn Mi.. .1. !•'. I'orlcrfi i aleil al ihe i rhos. Kui.'-er. Mis.

There is nothing in His age or environment lo account for Him. He comes as the gift of God to man. He came to tell men of another world of divinic relationships of love and kindness; a world of different v.il- lies where men were not socking their own ends, hut where they were living with a sense of the welfare of all. It was aworld that could be rcali/c.l only as men learned to love one another, and even their enemies. But Ihi.s love, .so different from I he- world of humanity's daily life of selfishness and greed, He brought into this world of actual relationships with men. He lived the things that He U.ught. and He inspired other men to live in (he same way. Wi' do not know much concerning these shepherds, but we do know coi.- uderable concerning the lowly men lhal Ihi.s Babe, when He had grown l:> manhood, made Hi.s companions and His friends, the apostles of His teuchin to the world, and the founders of His church. Surely, we must think of these shepherds as men of the same sort, humble people whose lives were not occupied with aspiration after wealth and p'lwer, who lived healthy, simple lives in the fields with their flocks, and who had much time to meditate upon the wonders of the fields and of the marry heavens. It wa.s lo .such men whose hearts were pure and simple and attuned to hear divine music that the messenger came on (hut night in the Judean hills; and the shepherds, though they loved their flocks, journeyed into the town that the ymight visit the mother and her Babe. They shared the glory of that new birth into the world; and we, if we are wise, will humble our hearts like these shepherds. We cannot journey to Bethlehem or see the Babe; but we can Jinow the beauty of the Savior and we may have the mystic joy and comfort of His presence. ST.

The morning sermon suggests a cause or a reason for this inconsistency. The evening sermon, in the service beginning at 7:30, is on the qulstion, ''Why Christmas?" It asks the "why" and the "wherefore" of Christmas, the reasons for it. For nineteen hundred years the world has been seeking an answer to the questions raised. Come hear how God met the problem of human life, of sin, of death, of human society and the daily struggles of the human soul.
