PAGE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEW? THURSDAY, MAY 21, 1942 Lord's Supper Sanctifies Fellowship And Adds Significance to Communions Text: Luke 22:14-30 BY WILLIAM E. G1LIIOY, D. D. • Editor oi' Advance If the scenes in our lesson, the Last ; Supper, were not sufficiently dramatic in the simple description which the New Testament record gives, 'great artists would have dramatized it for us and made the setting unforgetable. The greatest depiction of the scene in art is . the; famous painting by Leonardo da.', Vinci, though it is more accurate in the emoiions that it evokes than in Us historical detail.

Shorts and News. It is unlikely that the disciples ate at a long table of Leonardo's arrangement. More likely they were grouped together at tables in the form of a hollow square, and were reclining instead of sitting. But the physical details are unimportant. Jesus and His disciples were Jews, and in harmony with the statement of Jesus that He had not come to destroy the law or the prophets, they were engaged in what was, and continues to be the holiest of all Jewish observances, the celebration of the Passover. This specific celebration in the upper room has a new and added historical significance as the origin of. the Christian sacrament, or the Lord's Supper, which is so much the essence of Christian faith and fellowship that we speak of Christian bodies, or denominations, as "communions." Was Jesus consciously establish- up; such a rite? It is a question may ask, but that we cannot answer. Much might be said for idea that Jesus was sanctifying all fellowship and all partaking of food' together. The supper that the disciples ate was evidently a real meal. The small portion of bread and wine, of which modern congregations partake in the Lord's Supper, is symbolic: rather than real and church suppers have little relation to the Supper in the upper . , , room.

Though one of the twelve was a traitor, these disciples hud been called to high honor. But it was not the honor of overcising power like that of earthly kings. It was • : iring in the service of the King of Kings, who is King of Kings and Lord of Lords, because, beyond all others, He stooped to conquer and gave Himself completely to the service of God and His fellowmen. By joining in that spirit, we can perpetuate the spirit of the Lord's Supper in that upper room. The conflict in the world is still on between the loyal disciples and the traitorous Judases. between the "Lords of the Gentiles." the believers in force and violence, and the saints in the upper room.

In referring to the temporal' insanity plea of his client, the defense attorney, told the jury that the defendant was laboring under such mental stress that, when threatened with arrest, he went temporarily insane and killed the policeman and Mrs. Hargrove while in an irresponsible condition. Mr. Mayes also told the jury that Hargrove was carrying a pistol when he entered the shop solely for the purpose of commiting suicide and denied that there was ever any intention on the part of the defendant to kill his wife. Following conclusion of testimony yesterday afternoon Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Graham Sud- jbury of Blytheville made a strong I plea for the stale, summed up the evidence against Hargrove, attacked hLs contention of "temporary insanity" and asked the jury-^to cither find the defendant guilty: -of first degree murder or free him rather than decide on a compromise verdict. held at Blytheville in Walker Park on May 15 and 16.

So, this is definitely the time to keep neck insclcs limber and strong. Here re some ''quickie'' exercises which ill accomplish that: Sit erect with shoulders .squnre ut not .stiff. Relax neck and let ; end fall backward as far as pos- iblc. Now place fingertips behind firs and lift head to upright posi- ion. Let. the fingertips do the vhole lifting job, and lift from list behind each ear. Relax and epeat five times. Now try the exercise without ising fingertips—just let the head drop back and lift it by using the micclcs at the side of the neck veep the mouth closed. Repeat ivc times. FRY THIS FOR \ FINISHING TOUCH Now let the head fall backward, and roll it slowly from side to side. Repeat five times—no more. Then let the head fall forward on chest, and roll toward the left shoulder, backward, ripht and around again, describing wide circles. Do this slowly, .several limes. For a really relaxing finish, sit on the floor wilh ankles together and hands clasped behind you back. Lift hands till shoulder blades are sriuec/ed together. At the same time, let head fall backward. Relax and repeat five times.
