FrU W April * - «^ 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. — Good Fnd»y services at First Methodist church. First Ev, Lutheran Church, Algona Lent Holy Week, Maundy Thursday^ Good Friday, Easter — these days have great meaning for almost everyone, especially for active Chris* tians. But the'meaning varies from person to person, depending on our backgrounds, the heritage we h*ve been taught to hold dear, the pressures of life on our time and energies, and what we believe to be most important in life. ; Frequently, big words are used- to relate the importance of these days, words like crucifixion, incarnation, betrayal, humiliation, penitential, resurrection, atonement. But the thoughts exoressed by these words, while very big indeed, are actually quite simple and quite important for every human being, of every persuasion, Look at them more closely. ' .''.•• ">.'.'" Lent — a period of forty davs (riot counting Sunday?) before Easter, starting with Ash Wednesday. Among most Christians this is a time of some kind of special study or observance related to the death of Jesus Christ on Calvary's cross. It may be personal acts of giving up minor luxuries, or extra time of devotion or worship, or other forms of self examination rand penitence, but the emphasis usually is one of humbly seeking today's significance of our Lord's death. Holy Week — the week from Palm Sunday to Easter that is the anniversary of the last week of Christ's human life. There is a growing movement to establish a constant date for this observance, after centuries of .. varying dates based on astronomical phenomena, notably the moon and the spring equinox. Again, the meaning varies from person to person, but the importance is obvious when community customs are examined. This is also usually the Jewish Passover season. Most of Holy Week, 1966, is now behind us. Today is Maundy Thursday, our observance of our Lord's last | night. Then He gathered with His disciples in the upper room in Jerusalem to eat the Passover feast? MfeTre^'He pave those who were to be the Apostles some last-minute indications of what was ahead. He established the Algona Vault Service J,. I. Merryman Algona, Iowa Advance Publishing Co. "Algeria's Progressive Newspaper" Printing Office Supplies By R«v. Robert F. Lorent Lord's SUpper, and Went out tb the Garden of Gethsemane to priy 1 "Father^ if thou art willing, remove thi* cup frotn the; nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done." As He came out of the garden, Judas Iscariot betrayed Him with a kiss to the crowd; •nd so began the long round of trials •Ad humiliations that we summariie with the Word! "suffered under Pol* tius Pilate." All these things and more help us to understand what: Christ's death means tb us today. From these . things, much of our piety and many of our customs are derived. Good Friday -i--the day of crucifixion and burial. Through the early hours, Jesus suffered the* crudest indignities of the soldiers and rulers, and even the desertion of His own followers. Finally, the death sentence was passed, they laid the cross on His back and the long trek to Calvary began: Numerous incidents are recorded in the Holy Bible and even more in Christian traditions until He was roughly nailed to the cross aiid raised" between two thieves also condemned. The three hours He was crucified have become a most sacred period to Christians, observed even by much of the commercial world in our land as they close their doors of business in a simple gesture of respect, deeply appreciated by most Christians, We call this Friday "Good" because the redemption of mankind was obtained by this willing, innocent death. Jesus does not cry out for justice, protesting His innocence! Instead, we see in His words from the Cross His continuing concern for all mankind, His love for even the most unlovable. And we ask ourselves "Can't we at least share SOME of that concern, that love of oUr neighbors?" Finally, His body is taken down from the Cross by two sensitive Jews aid laid in the tomb. 'SSilent Saturday" is not ; nearly so rich in heritage. Here we see in the Bible only the frantic and futile efforts of His enemies to prevent the significant events of the next morning. ..In many churches, all activities, cease except for the necessary pre" And then comes Easter — the Resurrection!

Here is the remarkable incarnation of God in human flesh that we saw at Christmas now risen victorious over death; sin; and the power of the Devil! The rockhewn and stone-sealed grave could not contain Him! This is the event that gives inescapable meaning to all the rest of the Gospel,, the story of His remarkable life. Here is the MGood News of salvation" ..for a sin-sick world. ~" Perhaps the most important of all the big words is "atonement." There is a very simple way of understanding the spiritually vital truth for life today of this forbidding term. Just break it up into little words! "AT • ONE • MENT" is ; the act of reconciliation. And that is what Christ accomplished on the Cross of Calvary, the reconciliation of God and man. Christ again made "at one" the perfect God who's heart was sickened by the gross sin of men r and those men whose sins have not blinded them to the vision of immortality. As we stand these days "beneath the Cross of Jesus" and look up in faith, and love, the vision of peace and eternal life is bright before us. That is what the spiritual leaders of this community have sought to show you/these past weeks on these pages, with the co-operation of this newspaper. As you see it, remember to thank them!
