Text:. MalHicir: Chapters I and 2 v 'WIUJAM E. ,'CIUIOY, D. I). A lesson on the childhood of Jesus comes as a fitting attennath of the Christmas season, In which all Interest has centered upon the little town of Bethlehem and the won- lorful birtli of the babe in (lie manger. The story of the boyhood is less colorful and less complete. In fact, except for the very colorful story of Jesus In the Temple, disputing will) the doctors, at the age of 12, the reference to the boyhood or Jesus Is confined lo the one hare, but slguiJlcinl, 'statement that ire "increased In .wisdom and stature and in Carol, with God and man." Was there ever so much expressed 'in so few words? How casjMt ' nil iu the,picture of the boyhood in that simple • home. In Nazareth—a normal boy, growing up In the home of n devout father and a loving and discerning mother, a dutiful eon, among relatives living in the richness of their Old Testament religion full of the idea of.a coming Messiah, and expectant of the blessings His coming muMIls reign acre to;bring. . The whole atmosphere was such as to develop In the boy, In His natural growth and experience all that characterl?cd the divine Christ —for we must never forget .that the divine character of Christ was formed nnd revealed in the earlhlv and human life. Thnt'lioino in Nnz- arcth was-the scene oi preparation for all the glory of the later ministry of the Master, whose.supreme mission was to bear witness unto truth and "to seek nml to save the lost." is hot difficult to estimate the Influence, of'Mary, ns she .kept all the murvelous things of His birth and "pondered thorn'.In.her.heart," „ Bridge Luncheon Given Mrs HusseH Phillips entertained with n bridge luncheon yesterday tit her home when she was hostess to members or the Thursday Luncheon Club and four oilier'guests including Mrs. w.

"Hear O Israel, the Lord thy God is one God," followed by the two commandments, upon which Jesus later said "hang.all the Iniv nnd the prophets." But more, earthly influences, also were preparing .the Savior for His mission. Nazareth was hidden In the hills, but n mile or so nwny the groat .trade caravans pass-d The little province of Galilee was teeming with life and industry. It wn.s n meeting place of north and south, of east and west, with a mliitHng.of races nnd languages— a fitting place for n, boy to grow up who was to,have-a world,mission, and a world gospel, for the saving of without regard to class race, or color. —— • . . —_ M.iss Gwaltney Candidate For Ma id of Cotton Miss Mary' Carolyn Gwaltney daughter of Mr. niid'Mrs. J A Gwaltney of Osccola.
