\ Friday, Dec. 18, 1964 THE TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE PAGE 5 Religion In Americ By LOUIS CASS ELS United Press International On the church's ancient calendar of feast days, next Monday (Dee. 21) is dedicated to the patroti saint of skeptics. The New Testament calls him Thomas Didymus, but he is better known to history as "Doubting Thomas." The first three gospels tell us nothing about him. except to list his name among the 12 disciples who accompanied Jesus throughout His ministry. But the fourth gospel records three incidents in which Thomas was a central figure. These brief anecdotes give us a surprisingly clear picture of his character. It is the picture of a man who was by nature a pessimist, and jjwho found it hard to believe good news. He was a brave and loyal disciple. But he was stubbornly honest and would never pretend to believe or understand when he was really gripped by dcrabt or confusion. Lazarus Was Dying Once, Jesus and His disciples crossed the Jordan River into Galilee to escape from a hos- Pilgrim Holiness Church Plans Sunday Program Pilgrim Holiness church, corner of Mill and Douglas streets will be presenting their Christinas program, Sunday, December 20.

Nazarene Church Announces Sunday Service, Program The Nazarene church a n - nounees its Christmas program for Sunday December 20. at 7:30 p. m. Mrs. Betty Mathews will be directing the play entitled "The Heart of Christmas." Characters in the play are grandfather played by Paul Hackett and Susan, his granddaughter, played by Barbara Mathews. They will reminiscence and talk about the real meaning of Christmas, bringing in children from all the departments reciting pieces, singing songs and pantominc to bring to our minds "The birth of Chirst, the heart of Christmas."' ' Sunday ' at 9:30 a.m. the Sunday school will give a Chirstmas treat to everyone attending. Rev. Donald Mathews will s be bringing a Chirst­ mas message after Christmas carols presented by the choir. The public is inivted to attend the services. a tile mob which had threatened to stone them in Jerusalem. No sooner had they reached safety than word came that Jesus' friend Lazarus was dying. Jesus told the disciples He had to go back to Jerusalem to be with Lazarus. The disciples tried to talk Him out of the dangerous trip. When it was clear that He was determined to go. Thomas turned to his fellow disciples and said: "Le us also go, that we may die with Him." Pessimist that he was, Thomas was sure that the trip would be disastrous. But if Jesus was going, he would go too. We next hear from Thomas on the night of the Last Supper. Jesus was trying to prepare His disciples for the shock of seeing Him arrested and crucified. "Let not your hearts be troubled," He told them. "I go to prepare a place for you... and you know the way where I am going." The other disciples listened in silence, and perhaps some of them nedded, as if they understood. But not the tactless, ever-truthful Thomas. Didn't Know Way "Lord, we do not know where you are going," he interrupted. "So how can we know the way?" ; Jt was the question of a literal-minded man who has to have it all spelled out for him. And it evoked a reply that has cbme ringing down the centuries: "I am the way, the truth and the life. . .if you knew Me, you would know the Father also. From now on you do know Him. You have seen Him." It was the most forthright language Jesus had ever used to tell His disciples Who He was. And it was elicited by Thomas' refusal to pretend that he understood more subtle clues which had in fact gone right over his head. The episode which gave Thomas his nickname occurred after the Resurrection. Thomas had not been present when the risen Christ made His first appearances. Although the other disciples had told him the good news. Thomas flatly refused to believe it .until he saw Jesus with his own eyes. Appeared To Thomas A week later, Jesus did appear to Thomas. He insisted that the skeptical disciple examine his wounds, and satisfy himself by touch as well as sight that He was indeed a living person and not an hallucination. Thomas' response was to fall on his knees and say, "my Lord and my God." Jesus rebuked him gently. "Because you have seen me you have found faith," he said. "Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe." The Bible doesn't say what happened to Thomas after that. An ancient tradition holds that he carried the gospel to India, and died a martyr's death there. Scholars can find no evidence to prove or disprove this story._ But it sounds like the sort of thing that Thomas might do. CHRISTMAS PARTY World War I veterans and Auxiliary.

SATURDAY, DEC. 19 Game atCarmel Broadcast Presented BY TIPTON BULDING & LOAN ASSOCATION TIPTON, INDIANA WKMO-FM QO C ON YOUR ^ FM DIAL You* Your Child and School By DAVID NYDICK UPI Education Specialist A great deal of money goest into children's gifts, especially during this time of the year. These gifts should be carefully chosen so that they will be enjoyable, appropriate, and useful. An ideal gift must be chosen in light of an individual's age, ability, interests, and personality. The closer a gift meets these needs, the more likely it will become a favorite plaything. Many people think that all toys are enjoyable to all children. This is far from true. You probably know of many cases where an expensive doll is discarded and an old rag- doll remains as a continuing favorite. Discouraging? It shouldn't be. Adults do similar things. Apparently there is security in familiar items. Make an effort to choose a gift which is suited to the type of individual and his interests. Don't buy a quiet game for an extremely active child- who spends most of his time on the ballfield. It also is wrong to buy a baseball glo.ve for a child who dislikes the game or who may have ho opportunity to play the game. A gift is more apporpriate when it is proper for the age level and reasonable for the particular home. A toy or game which is too difficult for the child will end up On the shelf. Complicated instructions ,.are not good for the normal' first grader. A 12-year-old girl may not be interested in a play stove if she participates in actual cooking. Clamp roller skates may not be appropriate for a 15-year-old who is used to shoe skates at a roller rink. Many people feel that a gift should not be useful. They should consider that usefulness often creates interest. A pull toy can be most valuable for a child just learning to walk. A model kit which is • not too difficult will develop a child's ability to follow instructions and work with small details. Many educational toys aid in the development of academic skills. You may . notice that many items are marked for particular age levels. The only caution is to consider the individual child's development which may or may not be average for his age. Books are excellent gifts for some children. A well chosen gift will be greatly appreciated. Its value is not necessarily related to the actual cost. An inexpensive gift can bring many hours of pleasure and enjoyment. Recognize that a little investigation and thought will increase the quality and sincerity of any gift.
