Former ministers will take part in the services at the church located on Prosperity Farms Road just north of lighthouse Drive, said pastor the Rev. James F. Anderson. The new chapel and church school building were designed by Peacock & Lewis, A1A, Palm Beach architects and constructed by T. G. Brown, lake Clarke Shores builder. The dedication Sunday is part of a series of opening services for the church. Wednesday at 7 p.m. there will be a Thanksgiving Communion with Mrs. Cheryl Shropshire as guest soloist and J. David Anderson as guest organist. On Dec. 1 at the 11 a.m. worship service the Riviera Beach High School advanced mixed chorus, under direction of William Goode, will present a special Thanksgiving musical program.

DOUGLASS The hippies, the yippies, the flower people, and the protestors earning signs saying "Make Love, Not War" have had so much to say about love lately that some people have come to believe that love is the special property of youth and protest groups. Perish the thought! Love is a commodity in which all men, young and eld. rich and poor, have every right to share in which, indeed, all must share if there is ever to be a truly happy world. The blessing which love can bring- to men and women, as veil as the tragedy which is caused by hate, is the subject of this week's International Sunday School Lesson, "Love One Another." The emotions of love and hate are opposites. and most people go through life strongly moved by one or the other, or, at different times, by both. Those who are capable of neither love nor hate, but are passively neutral, are in a special category to be pitied. In his immortal poem "The Inferno," the great Italian poet Dante represented such apathetic people in a special circle outside hell, not good enough to get into heaven, but not bad enough to deserve the worst punishments. Most of us. however, are committed, to some degree of love or hate. To be caught up in a prolonged spell of hatred is a damaging experience for a human being. Hatred poisons personal relationships in all directions. The man who truly hates spreads his bitterness wherever he goes. Those who might have become his friends or benefactors are repelled by his hostility and anger. Some may fear him. and others may despise him, but no one wants him around. Even worse than the damage which hate does outside is the damage it does inside. Mentally and physically, the man who devotes himself to a powerful hatred suffers for it. Aggression, guilt, hostility, fear, and insecurity plague him. The animosity he feels toward others makes him imagine that others hate him. and thus he cannot know peace or contentment. Intense hatred may lead to ulcers, high blood pressure, nervous spasms, and other physiological problems. The man who hates carries within himself a perpetual flame which eats away at him and consumes him. How well the founders of Christianity understood such truths about human nature! In the New Testament. John writes. "He that hatcth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eves." Instead of hatred, John reminds his followers, what is needed is love. "For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another." Love is at the center of the Christian faith without it there can be no happiness or meaning on earth, and no salvation hereafter. Love works on all levels of our lives, and it is the only catalyst that will make all levels woik as they should. It is the basis of family living. Without love, home is either a prison or a battleground, and husbands and wives, or parents and children, are aggressors or victims in an endless struggle. Only when love prevails will order be restored in the communities of our nation. During the past several years we have all had the chance to see how hatred works as a social philosophy. When men truly love one another, and car for their neighbors as for themselves, there will b! no strikes, no riots, no slums, and no hunger. It is men's failure to love which causes these troubles now. John asks, "But whoso hatt this world's goods, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him. how dwellcth the love of God in him?" The key to understanding and solving the problems that distress our society is love. With men's love for each other comes the knowledge of human needs and capabilities which produces social progress. "He that loveth his brother abideth in the light." When we love sufficiently, we have the power and perseverance and insight to seek and find the answers to our questions and the cures for our Ills. It is only when we do not care about each other, that we are willing to let the evils go unremedied. The basic reason why love between human beings is so important and can accomplish so much is that human love is a reflection and off spring of God's love. Only when we know and believe in God's love for us can we love others iis we should. Jesus linked .these kinds of love permanent-V and untorgettubly when He faid that the first command-nient was to love God. and the second, to love our neighbor s ourself.
