FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 1965 THE DAILY MESSENGER, CANANDAIGUA, NEW YORK Sermouctle Of The Week Garment Of CAPT. DANIEL J. MILES The Salvation Army Text: "Put on the garments that suit God's chosen people, his own, his beloved: compassion. . . ." Col. 3:12. Think of the men and women who have worn garments of compassion. Of course, we think first of Jesus of Nazareth. It was a hard, hard world in which He lived. He relieved that hardness by His compassion for men and women of every class and condition. ., On one occasion He said, I have compassion on the crowd" (Mark 8:1,2). His death on the cross was an act of compassion. Whenever we put on a garment of compassion we follow His example and we do this in response to His love. We might, well do it for His sake. Others have worn this garment. Ii'o one could make a list of the multitude so.appropriate- ly dressed. We think of the Good Samaritan in Jesus' parable. Peter and John had donned this robe on the day when they met the lame man at the gate Beautiful. . ,,. Adorned in this garment, St. Francis receives the reverence of the centuries. We admire Florence Nightingale and all her kind wearing cloth of compassion. Leaving the figure of a gar- Compass/on .:;, ^^mSK need for compassion is all about us, and it is the need of individuals. Christians should wear flic garment of compassion continually. How can we be Christian if \ve do not have compassionate hearts? How can we get this garment? How .can we learn to put ourselves in another's place? How can we become really compassionate men and women? We can remember Christ's own compassion toward us and give response to His love. We can persistently pray for this grace to bs given us. We can cultivate and make use of our imaginations. By that we shall begin to put ourselves in another's place. We can learn compassion by Us practice. We can begin that practice today. Someone needs your help now. Training School/ Unit Meetings Set Next Week Mrs. Margaret T.

Siitfin Pastor, Canandaigua Baptist Church This ad Courtesy of: Rice's TV and Appliances 10 Bristol St., .Cdga. CAPT. DANIEL J. MILES ment, what is compassion? Literally it means to suffer alongside someone. A Christian of the Early Church said that a compassionate man is one who "puts his \vhole soul in the place of that of his neighlxr, and to become, if it were possible, a double man; and he must suffer, and weep, and mourn with him as if h e himself had put on the actual body of his neighbor, and as if he had acquired his countenance and soul, and he must suf- fer'for him as he would for himself." This is to become Christ like.. There is great need for Christian men and women to exercise compassion. It was the need of men that sent Jesus into the towns and villages doing good. II was man's need that sent Jesus to the cross to redeem them. It was not only need in general, but nsed in particular. In His parable of the Good Shepherd He affirms that the sheep are known by name. "Senior Citizens" should not be an apt phrase by which We lose awareness of a certain particular person of advanced age who needs compassion. "Juvenile Delinquents" should not become a term inhibiting;us from becoming friends with certain youths on our street, or even within our own households.

'Â· Dr. Truman B. Douglass says it is. And he's hot using the word sin in the loose popular sense of "a sin and a shame." He means precisely that desecration ol nature is an immoral act, an offense against Go5 the creator. ; Â· Â· : Dr. Douglass is a thoughtful and widely respected Protestant minister, who. served as executive secretary of the board for Homeland Ministries, United Church of Christ. His concern about what man is doing to nature was voiced in his annual report to his board, and in an interview with UPI. .. "The Bible teaches that man was appointed to exercise "domonion 1 over the earth," he said.-''But this does hot-mean that "we are free to exploit nature ruthlessly, for the satisfaction of our own ^Immediate desires. We are supposed to be responsible custodians : a n d stewards of the precious gifts of nature using them for the good of the whole -- which includes posterity. We do not have a right to hand on to .our. successors a riddled, raped and ravished planet." Cites Water Shortage Dr. Douglass said, that man's failure to live up to his trust as Gbd's appointed . steward over nature is grimly 'attested by the current water shortage afflicting his home city. New York. Although one of the world's great rivers, the-Hudson, flows past New York, it has become "so polluted by the waste from factories and town s that it is little better than an open sewer.""All over America this has happened. The water which comes fresh from rain clouds and springs is poisoned by man-made pollulion. Then we build vasl and costly installations to make it fit to drink again. It finally reaches oui homes so laden with chemicals that many American children have never known what a drinK of fresh, pure water tastes like. This is not merely waste. It is desecration." Among other examples of the rape of nature, he cited tha slaughter of birds and other wildlife resulting from indiscriminate use of pesticides; increasing pollution of the air by industrial smog and auto exhaust fumes; . and reckless xpenditure of forests and fossil uels. Man has a moral obligation o conserve not only the natural esources but also 'the beauty of he world which God entrusted o his dominion, Dr. Douglass is whether our children and ,, their children . will have a ., chance to. know these distinc- Â« lions. If. man continues : his predatory way for another decade or two, the areas Jot I natural beauty left in this once- fair land will be few, remote and inaccessible." Dr. Douglass .thinks that churches should become ."polite; cally active in this area," Â· waging a crusade for conservation just as they have waged, a crusade for civil rights. . . "Man's greed is so limitless and destructive that no agency but the government can hold it In check," he-said.-"We must actively' support the efforts of the federal government and other official agencies -to curb selfish human activities which destroy the balance of nature arid poison.the whole environment." He agreed that "it.may.be startling to some church members to say that the church has a resp on sibility irr- th e re ami of conservation of natural resources and preservation of natural beauty." "But if.we take seriously 1hÂ» call to tho church to turn away from itself and toward thi world, this is part of what U means," he said. "If we arÂ« really concerned with thÂ« welfare of persons, it is into just such problems as this thai we must learn to move witn effectiveness." PREPARE DECORATIONS -- The Rev. Harold D.

Coffee Breaks Cost Industry $4 Billion Yearly By WILLIAM D. LAFFLER UPI Financial Editor NEW YORK (UPI)--An estimated 50 million, Americans stop work at least twice a day for a coffee break because it has become an American tradition. The Pan American Coffee Bureau, which takes annual surveys of coffee-drinking habils, estimated recently that 71 per cent of all factory ..off ice and store workers sip their Java on company time in. the morning and afternoon. Time taken for -coffee breaks, from 10 to 15 minutes per session, would amount to an.extra two weeks' 1 paid -vacation yearly. . ' A University, of California survey estimated^ .-the' coffee break costs' $89 per '.employe per year throughout the nation, or $4,806,000,000.: Part of Day!s Work Young men and .women now entering the labor force regard the coffee break as part of the day's work. Some of the older employes know that the coffee break did not always exist but they .have only' the vaguest ideas about its origin/ Some think it began during World War II. Actually the coffee break began shortly after the beginning of the 20th Century. Associated Industries of New York state reports the coffee break originated in 1902 at the Barcalo Manufacturing Co. 'in Juffalo, the nation's oldest manufacturer of reclining chairs. Alban W. Kirton, retired vice president of Barcalo, told UPI recently that in those days there were no automobiles and men ana women hail to get to work by riding a bicycle or trolley. Suggests Coffee Break They usually were at work at 8 o'clock in the morning, Kirton recalled. 'Lunch Hime at 12:30 p.m. seemed a pretty long stretch off, so one of the men suggested having a break for coffee at 10 a.m.," Kirton said. 'A 'mid-afternoon break also helped to tide us over to dinner. . Â· 'We nominated a volunteer, the assistant bookkeeper and the only woman in the plant. We installed her in the boiler room with a hot plate heated bv kerosene and everybody chipped in for coffee." So unless someone has Bother information, it may be said that the coffee bjeak started in a boiler room in Buffalo, N.Y. 63 years ago when a nicke went a long way.
