The JUST A MINUTE... By Douglas G. Young Minister 18th Ave. Church of Christ THE SILENCE OF ETERNITY There:are frequent comments about some practice or belief not being acceptable bacause "the Scriptures are silent" about it. Others use the same silence as permitting the same practice or belief. In consideration of both views, there does seem to be only one underlying issue; what does God's silence mean? Con I and Gordon von Hoff Gordon von Hoffs to conduct program at Greeley church Youth of the Community foursquare Church invite all :ocal youth to their outreach program, "Come Together and Ihc Son Shine In" at the churcli Ihis weekend. Leading the program will be Gordon and Coni von Hoff, ormer youth pastors of the Colorado Springs Foursquare Church and presently active in youth evangelism in Nebraska and Colorado. The von Hoffs will share nessage and song through the three-day crusade, which begins with recreation Friday evening at 6:30 at the Park Elementary School gymnasium on 14th Ave. Saturday night the youth meet at 7 o'clock in the lower level of the church with the climax of the crusade coming Sunday at 7 p.m. Eacli of the services will be characterized by informality. The Foursquare Church is located at 1st Street and'25th Avenue Court in Greeley. Shepherd of the Valley formerly Church of Jesus Ministry (membership in the Am. Luth. Ch. pending) Meeting at 10th St. and 21st Ave. Sunday School 10 a.m. Divine Service 11 a.m. Everyone Welcome One of the sweetest and saddest stanzas in any of our hymns portrays deep insight into this important matter. Descriptive of the agonizing Savior in Gethsemane, the words say -"Where Jesus knelt to share with the the silence of eternity, interpreted by love!" How Jesus yearned for Heaven's answer, releasing Him from the awful contract of Calvary! (Lk. 22:41-44) His ·pleas mingled with "strong crying and tears" (Heb. 5:7)... but no consent was f o r - thcoming. Even the Savior of men must meet a trial too awesome and terrifying to be excused! H was . the final, perfecting force upon His life; and only when He had faced it and unqueslioningly followed the Father could his Son author eternal salvation for others. But how did He react to this vast silence, this bitter cup that would not remove from before Him? He interpreted heaven's unanswering grief by love, for nothing else could decipher such a quiet as met his uplifted heart! Love! Let all humanity take notice of its true proportions. Because there was obedient love there in the darkness of Gethsemane, not even such a horror as Golgotha could shatter Jesus! By love, and by no other standard, the Son of God saw that it was better still to obey! Unlike many since, whose cheap imitations of it permit uncountable extras in the name of faith, our Savior's love knew only to obey. Content that Jehovah would overrule all decisions in lower courts, believing that there is one thing worth more even than a lamb's innocent soul, this Jesus gave the last full measure of devotion! Intellectually,.He might never have arrived at such a conclusion. Emotionally, He was already at a crucial pitch. Morally, His courage ebbed faint at what lay ahead.. Grasping that one virtue that outshines all others, amid eternity's most awesome silence, Jesus bowed both head and heart in complete submission to the Father. It was the most masterful bit of interpreting this world has ever witnessed! Could such an attitude control men today, the question of the silence of Scripture would be finally answered, and men. everywhere could lay hold of that unity for which He prayed. ,Dr, Potthoff to speak here Dr. Harvey H.
