Hall teaches "Isaiah". Books also for the Juniors and Intermediates. Prayers From Spate By GEORGE W. CORNELL AP Religion Writer NEW YORK (AP) Out ahead lies the unknown. It is strange, frightening, fascinating. It was that way for the crew of the Apollo 8 as they penetrated a new realm, and basically, it always has been that way. "Give us, O God, the vision which can see Thy love in the world in spite of human failure." The prayer had come from these newest venturers as they broke throuph yet another uncharted frontier. That note of religious awareness has been sounded repeatedly by the pioneers in the lengthening thrust of humanity into the unvisited zones of space, and it registers an old Biblical tradition, beginning with Abraham. — By faith, he heeded a divine call to go forth to a distant land "and he went out, not knowing where he was to go" for "he looked forward' to the city" of God's ultimate truth which he had never seen. Theer was an echo of that same faith, of hope beyond sight, beyond the anomalies and ambiguities, the "conviction of things not seen," in the petition radioed by Air Force Col. Frank Borman from the region of the moon. "Give us the faith to trust the goodness in spite of our ignorance and weakness." Although skeptics have cited the emptiness of space as evidence of the absence of a place- defined sort- of "God," a different reaction has come regularly from American astronauts. This was the case with the country's first man in orbit in 1962, Lt Col. John H. Glenn Jr., a Presbyterian active in church affairs, who told questioners after he came back from his trailblazing trip: "To try to limit God to one particular section or space or something like that is a very foolish thing —to do ... God is certainly bigger than that and I think he will be wherever we go." Other astronauts—Lt. Col. Edward H. White II, a Methodist; Lt. Cmdr. Scott Carpenter, an Episcopalian: Maj. L. Gordon Cooper, a Methodist, and Maj. James McDivitt, a Catholic- have voiced similar views. Before the present space team set out, including two Episcopalians, Borman and Capt. James A. Lovell Jr., the presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church, the Rt. Rev. John E. Hines, sent them a message, saying in part: "We are intensely proud of you . .. and pray that the mysterious and enriching powers of God will sustain and keep you. Your achievements already in­ dicate that men can increase in wisdom and stature." Just as it shows man can move toward ever fuller manhood, Bishop Hines said, "it is our expectation" that it will bring "a corresponding and heartening escalation in the reconciling relationship between men and God, and men and men." That was part of the plea messaged by Borman, a lay reader at his home church of St. Christopher's in League City, Tex. "Give us the knowledge that we may continue to pray with understanding hearts, and show us what each one of us can do to set forward the coming day of universal peace."

The last sands trickle down the hourglass as the old man totters into irrevocable past and a lusty infant year begins. Bells ring in church steeples, confetti rains, horns blow. People sing and shout and maybe shed a tear. Cries of "Happy New Year" fill the ears and fall on happy hearts, or sad. To some, the old year brought joy and happiness. To others it held sadness and despair. Thus, men greet the new year differently; some with mockery, some with resolution, still others with a smile. Whatever your feelings about the year ahead, there is one way to be sure of its promise. God is the source of all goodness. Make Him and His Church a part of your life and you will find the strength and inspiration to make each day prosper. THE CHURCH FOR ALL . . . ALL FOR THE CHURCH The Church is fhe greatest factor on earth for the building of character and good citizenship. It is a storehouse of spiritual values. Without a strong Church, neither democracy nor civilization can survive. There are four sound reasons why every person should attend services regularly and support the Church. They are: (1) For his own sake. (2) For his children's sake. (3) For the sake of his community and nation. (4) For the sake of the Church itself, which needs his moral and material support. Plan to go to church regularly and read your Bible daily. The sum of its days shapes the year.
