To some, nothing; to others, everything! What We get from the day will depend largely on what we bring to it. If we . bring faith, we shall find stronger faith; if we bring "hope, we shall find more buoyant hope; if we bring joy, we shall find a new Joy beyond measure. At first "Easter" meant Spring, the eternal miracle of new life brightening the earth; then was addd the deeper Christian meaning, life from the dead, life victorious, eternal. Or as Paul put it, "Christ hath abolished death and brought life and Immortality to light." What had been a faint faith now became a fact; what had been a deep longing now became a certainty out in the light, The Birthright By REV. IDA Pastor of Divine The Easter celebration is replete with joy because Us message satis fies the demand of the soul to possess Its birthright. AH the associations of the observance of Easter are reminders that tf)ne has proved for us that man was Created in the "image and likeness of God" and given, dominion over all. things;' that the , soul is fully equipped to prove this dominion through identity with Its Source and that there is but one way of attainment, the Christ Way.

So it means much to every one of us if we can but take it in; it puts an eternal value into living; it gives vision and confidence; its puts eternity at the heart of every human experience, The first Easter was the triumph of the Prince of Peace; every Easter should be a fresh victory for Him and for each one of who follow Him; and the last Easter will be the fulfillment of His Kingdom of Lovevand Peace.

ELLIOTT Science Church thinks and acts in all his dealings and relationships true to the teach-igs of the Master. He can never know the joy, the power of the resurrection until he lets the Christ mind be his own; not until he ceases "following after'' and identifies with the same mighty inworking "power that raised up Jesus from the dead." The way of attainment is an unwavering faith in the Father, an ever increasing awareness of the presence'and power of God, and a vital acceptance of the promise, "all power is given unto me . . . and I am with you.". - - of Humanity - Avenue, Oakland j-rn 1 1 for Pioneers of Freedom) vj by Paul Korock SlnitlnE Unfl.r Dlr.ctinn F.

ARTHl'R F. GROBE Pastor, East Oakland Church of Nacarene Never was a message of hope given-at such-an opportune-time as the one that fell upon the ears of the disciples on that memorable morning of blasted hope and disappointment following the crucifixion and burial of their master and teacher, Jesus Christ It was a message of "good tidings" that Mary had received during her early visit at the opened sepulchre, "He is not here, but is risen."

' strengthen their faith. and continue to be their guide and keeper through the agency of the Holy Spirit With "wars and rumors of wars" bedimming the horizon of nations, economic stress, and internal unrest threatening the world's already tottering structure, we turn, this Easter season to the Risen Christ in search of a ray of encouragement of hope and faith. We feel as did the apostle Peter when he said to Christ, "To whom else can we go, thou hast the wordsWof eternal life." The crucified and resurrected Christ is the foundation stone of our faith. In him is the solution to every problem whether personal, family, national or international: the cure for the disease of sin. Christ is the way, the truth, and the life; In him are joys of salvation, the hope of eternal bliss and happiness. )Vk?)ttaf) i sr ia iff eve; eve; e.v CHT'RCH OF CHRIST EAST OAKLAND 2714 Havenscourt Blvd. Ralph O.

Regarding the day and his thema the minister saysT "Even if everyone were to deny the eternal quality of Jesus' life, the verdict of history would put the seal of essential truth upon him and his message. The Nation which lifts the sword soon perishes by it if not today, then tomorrow. The life which lives from day to day with no thought of others has no eternal quality in it The Nation or the person living as a . good neighbor grows into God-like stuff and never dies. Jesus and his way is built into the very being which undergirds the universe and is eternal."
