(Herald Photo) Sunday School Lesson What Church Would Jesus Attend First? By ROY L. SMITH The Uniform Sunday School lesson for February 24: "YOU ARE THE CHRIST," Mark 8: 27 through 9:1. Among the Jews of Jesus' day there was a universal expectation that the "Messiah" was to put in an appearance., and inaugurate an entirely new era in human affairs. But therei were wide differences as to precisely "who"' or "what" t h v Messiah was t< be. There wen those who be lieved he woult be a divinely en? powered indivi dual who, using SMITH powers granted to him by God, would overcome all the entrenched evils of the world. There were those others who believed he would be a supernatural being, only partly human, who would have supernatural powers at his disposal. Those who knew Jesus best found some, difficulty in fitting him into the popular patterns. Quite evidently, if he were to be accepted as the Messiah, they would have to remodel their expectations. One of the Christian doctrines made conspicuous in our day is the belief that Jesus is to return to the world, in the flesh, and take up the work he began nearly 2,000 years ago, and complete it. In preaching this doctrine we are given a variety of descriptions of the form in which Our Lord is to appear, none of which have ever been quite satisfactory to me. Each such description leaves so many of my questions unanswered. Schools Get State Funds More than $9,000 has been distributed to 21 Franklin County schools from the state annual school fund, Maurice Ponton, county superintendent, announced today. Ottawa School District 30 received $5,000, and the rest of the •mount was distributed to county schools on the basis of the number of children between the ages of 5 to 21 in each school district, The money is distributed •t $1.83 per pupil. The State Department of Education distributes the fund annually among all 105 Kansas counties. I do not want to seem facetious in a matter so sacred to so many people, but I confess that I have done a good deal of thinking about some of the dilemmas the "second coming" implies. Among them, there is the question of where Jesus may come, and what his appearance might be. For example, suppose he should put in his appearance in South Africa, in the midst of apartheid. I wonder whether he would appear in the guise of a white man, or a man of color. Suppose Jesus should appear, glorified, in the midst of a church full of worshippers in Johannesburg, and suppose his features were those of a man who was forbidden to enter the church because of his color. How would that matter be adjusted? Or, again, suppose that Jesus should appear with the features of a Chinese gentleman, among a little group of Christians who have been driven underground by the communists? There are so many places where he might appear that might be embarrassing to some people. I have wondered if that would make enough difference to them that they would be willing to change the places, and make them fit for his coming. Suppose, again, that Jesus should happen to decide to appear in Harlem, Chinatown, or in the lettuce fields among the bra- ceros. Would we cross town to Find him? In the days before the communist take-over in China, I was Sees Epidemic With Prosperity ATLANTA, Ga. (AP)-Dr. Paul Dudley White, famous heart specialist, said Wednesday America is suffering "one of the most serious epidemics of all time"-*ard- ening of the inner lining of the arteries. He told the Atlanta Graduate Medical Assembly that "we have replaced epidemics of infectious diseases with this terrific epidemic of atherosclerosis. It is booming wbjwver that is prosperity." spending some time in Shanghai, and found myself one afternoon in a great department store. In hunting about in the hope of finding some material I wanted to bring home for my family, I encountered an English floorwalker. He was an affable kind of person, and helped me immensely. But he also seemed to want to talk. 'These Chinese ladies are funny, you know," he said. "There was one of them in 'ere a bit ago trying to buy some 'ose. I asked her what kind of 'ose she wanted. and blimy, she said, "I want flesh color.' I say, what is flesh color?" The cockney's question has never left me. "What is flesh color?" If Jesus took on "flesh" what color would that flesh be? Suppose he chose the color of the ma jority of us, it would not be white, for the white man is in the minority in our world. And if he chose the color of the most decent people in the world — those who are nearest to the kingdom of God — what color would that be? Suppose Jesus were to appear in "flesh color" just where would he go to church, in our town, on the Sunday following his second coming. And if we were to take him out to see the city, after dinner, what would we be most anxious to show him? Would there be any part of the city we would not want him to see? If there is such a part of the city, maybe that's where the church ought to be putting in its best licks. Minutemian Shot Success CAPE CANAVERAL. Fla.
