(The International Uniform Lesson on the above topic for Jan. 15 'Is Matthew 17: 1-18; 2 Peter 1:1618. the Golden Text being 1 John 1:14. "We beheld His glory, as the glory of the Only Begotten of the Father.") By NEWMAN CAMPBELL WITH MULTITUDES of people following Christ about and listening to His preachings, It probably was felt by Him that He must get away from the world sometimes and commune with His God. So, on this night of which we ate told He took his three best friends, Peter, James and John, his brother, and went up into a high mountain to pray. The record says it must have been Mount Hermon, which rises 9.000 feet. At any rate, while Jesus prayed apart from his companions, the three disciples went to sleep. They were awakened by a bright light, and they saw Jesus transfigured 30 that "His face did shine as the sun, and His raiment was white as the light." With Him the disciples saw- two great Jewish leaders, Moses and Ellas, the prophet. They were talking to Jesus about His coming death in Jerusalem. Then . a cloud appeared, and out of the cloud a voice spake and said: "This Is my Beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear thou Him." You can imagine that the disciples were frightened at first, but Jesus come and touched them and told them not to fear. All their lives these men. especially Peter, remembered and pondered on this vision. Have you ever seen a familiar face become transfigured with joy or inspired thought? It is something to remember. Plain human faces can reflect such a wondrouE light that are transformed and plain features are made beautiful. On the next day a certain man came to Jesus and brought his only son with htm. The son was an epileptic. The people of that day thought a devil was In him, tear- Ing and bruising him and.making him foam at the mouth and cry · out. The father said the disciples had tried to cure him, but they had not been able. Jesus cured the son 1 : and when His disciples asked Him f why they could not do it. He told · them it was because they did not have enough faith. Another interesting story which comes In today's lesson also illustrates how lack of faith may literally let one .down. It la the story of Jcsua walking on the water. The disciples were In a ship which was tossed about in the rough sea. Jesus was on the shore, and He went toward the ship, walking on the water. The disciples were frightened at seeing this miracle. They thought He was a spirit. But Jesus comforted them by saying, "Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid." Then Peter said: "Lord, if it be Thou, bid me come unto Thee on the water." And He said "Come." So Peter started walking toward Jesus on the water, but he became afraid, and when he was afraid he started to sink, crying out "Lord, save me!" Jesus stretched out His hand and'caught him and said, "Oh, thou of little faith, wherefore ditist thou doubt"? This is one of the many lessons we can remember all our lives. We must have faith. We may not be able to walk on the water. We do not live in the time of Jesus and we do not have the physical presence of the Savior. But if we believe that He can do all things, and If we trust and work hard toward a solution of our problems, we, too, can cany on, even though our paths seem dark. With a record of 890 consecutive actings to his credit, W. D. McGinis tendered his resignation Thursay as a member of the Rotary Club. The state of his health has made it ifficult for him to be regular in at- endance, Mr. McGinnis wrote Pres- dent E. R. Kooscr. In recognition f his long service the club made him n honorary member for life. Regret over the cessation of active anticipation in affairs of the club vas voiced by President Kooscr and R. K. Smjth, also by Dr. Harry J. Bell ot Dawson, tlie speaker of the vcckly meeting. One of the first men ie met on coming to this region was Mr. McGinnis, the doctor said. A 'lose friendship sprang up which has continued to this day--almost 50 ears. It has deepened with the passage of time. Mr. McGinnis was a charter member of the club.
