Saturday: Service, 7 p. By NORMAN VINCENT PEALE Fifth Avenue traffic was jammed almost to a standstill. A bloated economy had pushed Christmas shopping to a new high. Our taxi had made about two blocks in 15 minutes. One of my companions fumed and fretted. "This traffic is terrible," he growled. "It draws off what little Christmas spirit I've got." My other friend was more urbane and philosophical. "Boy, it sure is something," he mused, "really something. Just think of DR. NORMAN V. PEALE "Give gift* to Christ" it. A baby born nineteen hundrec and sixty four years ago, over 5,000 miles from here, causes a traffic jam on Fifth Avenue Yep, that sure is something." The romanc* of Christmas still lives despite the com mercialism which has come to be so heavily involved. The business of buying and selling cannot quite obliterate a certain elevation of spirit,uniquely as sociated with the Nativity. Anc the good will toward men whicl the angels sang about come hesitantly, yet rather certainly to the world. . That elusive thing calle brotherly love rises faintly t the surface of modern life fo at least one day, lingering jus long enough to hint at wha might be if the Christmas spiri could achieve permanence. Some astonishing question about Christmas as a publi celebration are being voiced Since it is definitely a Christia observance of the birth of Chris who is venerated by Christian as Lord, the currently sensitiv church-and-state issue appear to be involved. Elimination of prayer anc Bible reading in public school has set a new public polic which may be extended Christmas itself. Some believ that, since it is now contrary t American practice to subjec non-Christians and also non-b lievers to any form of religiou exercise, it may also be im proper to impose upon thes same Americans a public o servance of Christmas, eligious event believed in by a ajority, but not by all. Here again the question of linority protection is being aised. Christmas trees in public laces, crosses displayed on uildings, Christmas decorations stores and shops — indeed, 11 appurtenances of a Christian oly day — may affront citizens f other faiths or of no faith. In ecent years objections by non- hristians has led to elimination f Christmas exercises in public chools, including the display of reches, stars, Wise Men and istinctive Christian symbols. Perhaps Christmas may be- ome an observance solely for be Christian church and home. While this would be a radical ihange, some believe that Christmas, forced out of public usage, could become more deep- y cherished by Christians Adams. Masses at 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, li and 12:15. The Rt.

While it would represent major change, this return of hristmas to the churches and the abandonment of December 25th as a legal holiday could in time, perhaps, have an effect on decreasing the current paganiza- tion of a spiritual event. It would at least emphasize its religious meaning. Christmas giving would certainly be affected. In early centuries it was the practice of devout Christians to lay their gifts on the church altars at Christmas, the same to be used for Christian work. Now, instead, gifts go almost altogether to family and friends. If Christ gets any gift at all it is minor in amount and value. I have heard suggestions that a movement should be inaugurated among Christians to discontinue giving gifts to each other, or at least to reduce greatly the number and cost of gifts; and instead have a real Christian Christmas in which gifts are offered to Christ. Well, who knows, maybe it would be a good idea. Just think of the vast sums which would be diverted from commercial expenditure to Christian purposes. CONGRATULATIONS Mr. David P.

Time for holly and evergreens, colored lights, stockings hung by fireplaces, last-minute shopping in great stores busy with happy crowds, for vacations, skating, sleighing, buying, and receiving of gifts. It is also the time that should turn the minds of men once again, if for only a moment, to the stable of Bethlehem and the never-old story of the birth of Jesus, Saviour of the world. For many a year now the world has longed for peace. The first world war was fought to end all wars. We have had another world conflict since, and have since not been able to get rid of our weapons but rather have built more awesome and fearful weapons. In our race toward peace it would seem as though we have run toward war and total destruction by our powerful weaponry. Why? Is it so impossible for people to live together in harmony? Will nations never cease warring over differences? Will mothers never be able to watch their sons grow to manhood without the shadow of separation and death ever lurking near? Will wives never be able to raise their families secure in the knowledge that the head of their home will not be taken from them to fight for some cause or other? To this could be added the many types of crimes committed through hate and jealousy also causing insecurity within the home. Is this forever to continue? We read in the Bible that God is a kind God, a loving heavenly Father: We are told that Jesus Christ is gentle, compassionate, full of sympathy and love for His great human family. Why, then all the suffering? Why not peace? Why the unrest that is everywhere? Back in the beginning of time it was not God's purpose that men would have to bear the unhappiness that is now the birthright of every hurnan being. He did not plan that they should die, that wars would be fought and that crime should be 1 a part of our society. He did not create a world merely to have it turned into one vast wildneress of doubt, unhappiness, and despair. On the contrary, He looked at His world and "Saw that it was good." It is not necessary to go into what happened. It is explained in one word SIN, a word that holds within its three letters the blame for every unhappy moment, for every crime that ever has been committed, for every war that has been fought, for every dream that-has been crushed. Had it not been for this word SIN, neither Pearl Harbor nor Hiroshima would have been bombed, and millions of homes would have been happier this Christmas. WILL PEACE EVER COME? True peace, world peace? Yes, peace will come, as surely as Jesus was born in Bethlehem, so surely will He come again to the earth. Not as a baby in a manger but as a conquering King, surrounded by millions of shining angels. In the day of His final victory over sin, and over all the powers of evil, will the word of the angels come true, "On earth peace, good will toward men." In a day such as ours let the following poem written by Alice Ross Williams be our constant prayer. ELDER ROBERT GORANSSON, Pastor Seventh Day Adventist Church Elder Robert Goransson, Pastor Seventh Day Adventist Church 1416 Soufh Delaware THE TRUStlNG HEART Oh, saviour, let me walk with Thee today, and follow whither Thou shalt lead the way, In sunshine or in shadow, as Thou wilt, For near Thy side are never pain or guilt. With Thee are all the dearest dreams of life, There comes no whisper of the worldly strife. Thy peace enwraps, Thy love makes all men free—• Oh, Saviour, let me walk with Thee! Dear Saviour, may I ever follow Thee, Kept by Thy love, yet wonderfully free And while I walk beside Thee, hear Thy voice, Repeat the Precious Words that all rejoice, Bearing God's message To each waiting one Who follows Thee from weary sun to sun.
