The Right Influence Wo can always find excuses or reasons or we can always justify our positions and our stands. We can do this in making donations if we want to get out of making them. We can do it when we do not want to do a p a r t i c u l a r task or job we arc requested lo do. It is like many other things, but we can always find time to do the things we want to do or we can find money to pay for the things we really and truly want. · lint as a group and as a people one of the best jobs we do for giving reasons and excuses concerns our religion or our failure lo attend church or to be affiliated with any church. Most of us go along in this life we live, those not actively . a t t e n d i n g church, and get along u n t i l we reach a crisis in our life! When tragedy strikes; when sorrow arrives; when we need only the help that He can give us--we seek out the church. Yet perhaps for years we have never gone to church; we have not participated in church programs; we have not assisted w i t h our ability or talent or with our means. But .sooner or later the day and the time comes when we t u r n to the church. II is regrclabie, of course, t h a t we have not and do not reali/c t h a i we w i l l need the church. The fact is that we noed the church every day of our life, not just when sorrow, tragedy or some great problem confronts us. Many do realize this and long before that day of need arrives, and they do something about it. , ' · " ,, , , . , ,. The u. S.

Most of UK realize thai only aboul half of the 1 average church membership ntlends services regularly and actively participates in church programs. Wo know one church in our city which has over 10.10 mi'nibers; All of them could not attend services at one time because the church could not accommodate them.

Churches need workers and teachers in their. Sunday schools; they need them in the young people's groups; they need them in tho church women's organization; they need them actively in the church programs. Every church needs members who set a good example; who emphasize what the church affiliation can mean to them; who can help convince others what Ihe church can do in our own community anri in o u r . n a t i o n and in the world. As we have pointed out before, churches are the greatest influence for'good in this community or any. other community. Dul that Influence is limited by the church members, by their work and'.efforts, by their influence.
