Prepared by Dr. Willarfl L. Sperry for the Federal Council of Churches of Christ in America. Fifth Week--"Kiflred Christian Virtues." Gentleness Tuesday, March 16. "Thy gentle ness hath made me great." Read Psalms 18:20-35. "Gentle Jesus, meek and mild' has irritated the virile moods of modern life. For a generation now we have been listening t o t h e platitude that we need a m o r e m a n l y Jesus. L i k e a l l h a l f truths, this corrective idea must not be overdone. There is in all really great men strain of "the eternal feminine" and therefore of Jentleness. T h e world in which! w live s e e m s ? ;o be more and! more given over DR. SFERttY to ^ violence. Whatever we may think of their political wisdom there is iri the crop of modern dictators, which is -springing up the worid over, a strain of brutality and cruelty which has nothing to do with Christianity. Let us do these men justice -- they do no pretend that it has. But this increasing cruelty oi the Western World- is a terribly sinister portent. The virility of Christianity's Lord and Master must not be exploited as a sane, lion for modern man's savage in. humanity to man. Part of thi greatness of Jesus derived from i gentleness he had from God Al mighty. Prayer: Gracious God, who b the gentleness of Christ dost continually beseech us, give us fullness of strength, but save us from wanton acts of strength which bring hurt to others, and help us because we are strong to be also tender one to another: Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. At the Hospitals Mrs. Ed Hartwig, Thornton, wai admitted to the Park hospita Monday for a major operation.
