However, there are days that stand out in ; vivid memory In which my faith grew. ' ' There was a time when, as a small boy, I aiked, "Mother, 1 what can I be when I grow up?" She said, "You can be any- · thing you want to be, son. What would you like to be?" I an,' »wered, "I would like to be a preacher." ' · · · · · . - V ' ' ' ALTHOUGH I LITTLK realized the full meaning of my | statement, yet my faith, born of Gott.'was expressing itself at . this early ace. It seems as though It has always been In my · thinking lo be a minister, I never seriously considered any olher calling, although ; there was that time when, being Impressed with the romance ' of flying because my brother-in-law was a pilot. I considered ' flying as a career. This, however, was but a passing.fancy. My ' faith steadily grew toward that time when I would enter the I ministry. ..,,,,.. ; . , .. _ -· , ; r - - . , , , . . , . , 1 MY FAITH GREW on that memorable day when I entered · the Bible, College to begin my preparation for the ministry. '. After my mother and a Christian friend who had Influenced my life greatly for ministry had left me, I vividly recall walk. . Ing out over the lone campus. Something of the magnitude of ; God, the greatness of His universe and the sacrednes* of the I calling which I felt In my heart, filled me with a great ex- pandlng faith. On that day my faith grew. My faith grew on that Easter Sunday twenty-two yean ; ago when with the strains of 'he hymn, 'Take My Life And · Let It Be Consecrated, Lord, to Thee," I knelt at the altar of ; the church to be set apart for the Christian ministry. Ai the · minister gave the ordination charge, as the elders laid their ; hands upon me, and as the prayer* of consecration were given, · my faith grew. I believe Cod calls men and women Into his ! ministry. I sincerely believe that God has a pattern and a plan fot each life. . . * · · ' . - ...-. · · · ' · · · i - . - · · ·.. .

More Questions Than Answers This Is «n »|f ef many qutstlons -- and msny answers -- but not quit* is many »n- , swcrs as questions. Wh«n our agi asks questions, men go to laboratories and weigh and measure. They ring doorbells and mak* surveys. They go to mwt- Ingi snd discuss. All of this fertrlih activity products many answers , ... but not all tb* an- , swers. Some) questions · cannot bi answered that .. way. Ai:d these) art the * question] which are left when the nolu» dies ' down and w* g*t · chunce to think. Let's look at a few of these questions. C]uestioni Whst does life rneunt H«» someone put mem- Ing Into It, or have all things happened merely by chsncel If man Is the first being on this earth who Is abU to think, whom shall w* ask about meanings T Answer! NO MEANING WITHOUT GOD. . . Question: Whom can w» trust? Can we trust human good, ness? Can w« trust blind fst«T Who will provid* for cur ssfety, our welfare? Answer! NO SECURITY WITHOUT COD. Question! What about the future? Do trends and surreys spell It out for us? Whst about th» unexpected? what ·bout ulflsh desires, unstable leiders, human sin? . Answer! NO FUTURE WITHOUT GOD. Therefore the Chrlstlsn Church still confesses -- not spolo- g»tlcslly, not hesitantly, but Joyfulljr -- I BELIEVE IN COD . THE FATHER ALMIGHTY, MAKER OF HEAVEN AND EARTH. . . . . . . . Tl» Cirt.tU.
