SMITH The Uniform Sunday School lesson for February 3: "MIGHTY DEEDS OF JESUS," Mark 4:35 through 5:43. Much attention is given, in modern preaching, to the teachings of Jesus, and for this there is good precedent. The Gospel of Matthew, for example, is believed to have been composed by an early Christian teacher who wanted to preserve the record of his Master's teachings. Jesus' c o m- ments on life, God, truth, and righteousness predominate therefore in the First Gospel. The Gospel of Mark, on t h e other hand, recites at length ' SMITH the actions, and works, of Jesus. The various stories serve a variety of purposes, but basically they undertake to present a single, central fact — that Jesus made use of an unusual power. Bishop Arthur Moore of The Methodist Church is fond of saying that when the first century Christians came together, they talked about their powers, but when modem Christians come together they talk about their problems. There is a marked disposition on the part of modern preachers to stand in their pulpits and describe to men what they can do for themselves. And, it must be confessed, there is great need for preaching on that subject. All too many of us would far rather have something done for us, than to bestir ourselves to do something for ourselves. But to tell a man that there is something he can do for himself is not to "preach the Gospel." It may be good advice, and it may be advice that is badly needed. The essentially good news of the Gospel is the announcement that God stands ready to do something for men, even for the man most in need! it is the assurance that God stands ready to do something for a man which he cannot do for himself. A more or less famous preacher friend of mine who had been wrestling with a series of annoyances and frustrations, finally surrendered to his fears and went into what was popularly called a "nervous collapse." A young woman who was suffering agonies as a result of the collapse of her life, in the face of great difficulties, was discussing the case of her pastor with a close personal friend. "Our preacher's break - down," she said, "has me worried. He has been urging me to have faith, and - here he is flat on his back, and under the care of a psychiatrist. I wonder where his faith has been?" Let's give both of them all the credit that is their due. The burdens of life sometimes become terrifying. But a faith that will not work in the preacher's case, will not work in the parishioner's case. And if the Gosepl is good news, it is not good news for both of them? One of the most convincing arguments in behalf of religion I have ever heard came from a doctor who said, "I have discovered that the people who take their religion into the hospital with them, always start home a little head of the others." There is an old theory concern- Williamsburg News Forbes Family Home From South America By SENIOR CLASS Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Forbes, Judy and Neal Lee, from Lima, Peru, are visiting his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Neal Forbes.

It is expressed in a popular expression — "Be good and you'll be happy," — by which is meant that if you are "good" you will have no troubles. But that is not true. Good people do have troubles. They suffer illness, betrayals, disappointments, and defeats just as the rest of us do. But their religion gives them an inner source of power the wicked never have. The proof of good religion is not the fact that it insulates us against the hard blows, but that it provides us with inner resources in the time of disaster. The righteous man is often imposed upon, sometimes lied about, and frequently defeated. But something within him holds him to the path of righteousness. And in the face of his defeats he gets to his feat again like a champion. The old Negro had come upon the heart of the Gospel when he prayed, "0 Lord, help me to remember that nothin's going' to happen to me today that you and me together caint handle." If good religion saves us from our fears, it has provided us with all the salvation a red-bloded man or woman needs. And those inner resources, of which we have been speaking, are a divine gift. They represent an importation. FDR, Jr., Named To Federal Post WASHINGTON (AP)-President Kennedy has selected Franklin D. Roosevelt Jr., a former campaign lieutenant and son of the late president, to be undersecretary of commerce. If the Senate confirms the nomination, the 48-year-old Roosevelt will succeed Edward Gudeman, who is returning to private business, in the $21,000-a-year post. Announcement of Roosevelt's designation Thursday opened two avenues of speculation That he might eventually succeed Luther H. Hodges as secretary of commerce or that he is being groomed for a Senate nomination from New York in 1964. Newsmen asked Pierre Salinger QUEEN ELIZABETH Flight Troubles For Queen VANCOUVER, B.C. (AP) - A smiling Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip stepped out of a jet. airliner here Thursday night after a flight of about 6,500 miles in which their plane was twice forced to turn back by foul weather. After spending the night in a hotel, they were expected to resume their journey from England to Fiji, with a refueling stop at Honolulu. The queen and her husband plan a two-month tour of Fiji, Australia and New Zealand, parts of the British Commonwealth. White House press secretary, if there was any understanding that Roosevelt would move up as secretary should Hodges resign. Salinger said he knew of no such understanding and Hodges issued a statement describing Roosevelt as "a dynamic and gifted person." Roosevelt was elected to Congress from New York in 1949 and served two terms and part of a third. He makes his home in Washington, where he has a foreign auto agency, but the White House listed the appointment as from the state of New York. Along with the Roosevelt nomination the White House announced Kennedy had picked Dr. Richard H. Holton of Berkeley, Calif., to be assistant secretary of commerce in charge of economic affairs. The $20,000 post also is subject to Senate confirmation.
