Movv^do you keep negative friflu «drtces but tjf ^ fee? Wfifenlftd home is attacked by, Outside influences like drugs, pornography aftd dishonest or immoral role models in movies and television* how can you protect family members? The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints feels that building strong family relationships is one way to help guard the home from negative influences, 'the church counsels its members to spend time together building positive relationships, developing good sdlid friendships within the family. It counsels members to reserve at least one night a week for family activities. The church feels that National Family Week, Nov. (20-26, is a good time to emphasize these relationships. By age 13, a child will usually have spent about 50,000 hours at home. If parents Use those hours to teach a child the principles of what is right and what is wrong, and work at developing a trusting, caring relationship, the family can be in a strong position when attacks come. How can families develop an inner strength to help them through the times of stress? Here are a few suggestions: — Take time to develop friendships within the family. Have regularly scheduled family activities that involve all family members. *f Attend church- of synagogue wte^iy, with the wftdle family. -~ Choose television programs and movies carefully, tf ft situation is portrayed that goes against your mor-' al values, teach your family members that it is not appropriate behavior. ~ Educate the family on the harmful effects of drugs. — Teach the value of honesty and moral ethics to your family. —-Encourage each family member to set a good example for other family members. ' r— Create situations where family members can learn to love each other. "We feel that families can create a home environment that's stable and loving, where the family'can retreat from the problems all too prevalent in the world," said Bishop Bellistbn of the Seguin Ward of the Church of Jes.iis Christ of Latter-day Saints. National Family Week provides an opportunity for us to re-examine just how strong our families are and how we can improve them. . A Man Called Norman , "Love thy neighbor as thyself." It is the second greatest commandment in the Bible and one of the hardest to obey. If heeded by mankind, it would effectively make war, poverty, hunger and injustice obsolete. If applied by an individual, it can change a person forever. Christophers strive to change the world I am not altogether sure what George Bush means when he talks about "a thousand points of light." But it reminds me of something that happened in the Los Angeles Coliseum one night after V-J Day in 1945. More than 100,000 spectators had come to witness a pageant in honor of that city's war heroes. The playing • field had been transformed into a terrifyingly realistic battle scene. Here is one spectator's graphic description of what he saw: "Exploding land mines shook the earth. Batteries of Army tanks roared across the stadium. A mass formation of B-29s swooped down over the great throng of people. "The noise was deafening and the effect overpowering, as if to emphasize the helplessness and insignificance of the individual in the face of so miich mechanical might." Suddenly: all the outbursts stopped and the master of ceremonies stepped to the microphone and said: "Perhaps you sometimes say to yourself, 'My job isn't important because it's such a little job.' But you 're wrong. The most obscure person can be very important. Let me show you what I mean." At that point the great floodlights that bathed every corner of the coliseum were turned, off. The noonday brightness of the great arena was suddenly turned into total darkness. Then the speaker struck a match and in the blackness the tiny flame could be seen by everyone. "Now you can see the importance of one little light," the speaker said. "But suppose we all strike, a light." From all over the vast coliseum came the sound of matches being struck until, faster than it takes to tell, 100,000 pinpoints of light lit up the summer night as everyone gasped with surprise. In the crowd that evening was a Catholic priest named Father James Keller. As he made his way out through milling thousands at the end of the evening's program, he found himself thinking about how comparatively easy it would be to bring peace to the heartsick world if only enough of the wonderful people in it would make a constant effort to spread the light of truth and combat the darkness of error. That was the beginning of the Christopher movement. In 43 years it i.fias enlisted hundreds of thousands of Americans in its crusade to change the world — not through any spectacular means but by encouraging normal, decent, average citizens to get into mainstream American life and quietly, without fanfare, bring the influence of good ideas. Anybody can be a Christopher. There is nothing to join. You don't have to be elected. All you have to do is bring Christ into whatever corner of the world you happen to occupy. Christopher means Christ-bearer. If a good man does nothing more than fill a job that might otherwise be filled by someone whose personal influence on .his fellow workers would be bad rather than good, he is making a worthwhile contribution. He is a Christopher. Not many of us are called to be beacons in a darkened world. But each of us can be a pinpoint of light. And if enough of us are, we can illuminate the whole world. This was the vision of Father Keller that night in. 1945 when he saw 100,000 pinpoints of light turn the darkness of LOS Angeles Coliseum into day. His vision can still be a lamp unto our feet. To whom shall we go? by John W. Caraway Then said Jesus unto' the twelve, Will you also go away? Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of eternal life. John 6: (57-68. The multitudes had turned away, leaving only the faithful twelve. Jesus asked if they were going to also go away, Peter gave the profound answer; there wasn't any other place to go. Jesus had, was and is the answer because He had the words of eternal life, a.nd in Him is eternal life. Today, we live in an enlightened, sophisticated, complex society. Technology has swept us into an age of constant change. Our freeways are a continual flow of restless traffic. We are on the move whether we know where we are going or not. We push ourselves, frantically even on our vacations trying to squeeze as much pleasure as we can into them, then we go home exhausted and disappointed we didn't gej, to OQ it all or see it all, We find ourselves going to mar' riage counselors, financial eoimse.* lors, job epunselprs, psychologists and psychiatrists. Meanwhile pur youth are drinking excessively, experimenting, with devastating drugs, petting involved with, wiicli- GK» and sadism, having abortions awl taking tftetf own lives, Roll fa^k toutfy $ pars,,We didn't travel far, nor spend exff$»&ive- ly. We didn't expect much, and were satisfied with what we had. Entertainment was simple. Life revolved around the home, the church and the school. Without television, people read books, and even talked to each other. Families did things together,, and the youngsters enjoyed it instead of insisting they had something else to do. Most rural people leaned on the Bible, believed it and practiced it. Compare those standards with today's trends, and it isn't hard to see where we have left the values which were our foundation, To whom shall we go? I suggest we return to the God of our fathers, the son of whom Christianity is all about, and the book which reveals the nature of God and what he expects of us. We need to take a good look at our values and our priorities, With a threat of economic collapse, moral decay and loss of the home it seems pretty obvious to whom we should go, Movement aims to increase tension CHAPPAQUA; N.Y.
