PEALE At Christmastime I always think of my father, for he taught me a great truth that has added much joy to my life. It was that the way you think about people, how you treat them and react to them, is extremely important to your own happiness. "To treat each man as a child of God is the big secret of happy DR. NORMAN V. PEALE "Each » child of God" o such thing as a bum. He is child of God. Maybe he hasn't nade the most of himself, but e is a child of God, nonetheless. Ve must look upon a man with steem. Now, I want you to go nd give him this." My father pullsd out his ocketbook and handed me dollar. That was a lot for his means. 'And do exactly the way I ell you. Go up to him, hand him his dollar and speak to him vith respect. Tell him vou are living," he said. "Hold him in esteem and it will make him and you happy." One Christmas Eve, when was a very young boy, I was out with my father doing some late Christmas shopping in our home town of Cincinnati. My father had »s big a h«ar1 as any man I ever knew. I made no difference who a per son was, he loved and talkec with them all. And he was an extremely happy man. He ha< respect and esteem for every person. He saw beneath their exteriors, not as they appearec to be, but rather as they realty were. AncJ he had sharp insight too. He knew people. On this oc9asion I was loadec down with packages and mus have felt tired and irritable. was thinking how good it would be to get home when a beggcr a bleary-eyed, unshaved, dirtj old man came up to me, touchec my hand with his and asked fo: money. I recoiled from his soiled ham and rather impatiently brushec him aside. "You shouldn't triat a man Iliat way, Norman," said m father as soon as we were ou of earshot. 'But, Dad, he's nothing but a George H. 8:30 and 11 urn. Bum?' he said. "There is Adkins, minister, a.m., worship and Communion. 9:45 a.m., church school. Sermon: "The Innkeeper's Story."

"Oh," I objected, "I don't want to say that." My father insisted. "Go and do as I tell you." So I ran after the old man, caught up with him and said, 'Excuse me, sir, I give you this dollar in the name of Christ." Th« old man looked at me in absolute surprise. Then a wonderful smile spread over his face—a smile that made me for- let he was dirty and unshaven. [ could see his real face through the streaks of grime. His essential nobility came out. Graciously, with a sort of bow, he said, "I thank you, young sir, in the name of Christ." I remember that my irritation and annoyance faded like magic. And suddenly I w a s happy, deeply happy. The very street seemed beautiful. In fact, I believe at that moment I actually held that man in full and complete esteem, and it made Christmas an unforgettable and memorable day. Sine* then I have mad* every effort to see people as my father saw them. And that has brought -untold satisfaction. I have often returned to the exact spot where this incident took place, on Fourth Street in Cincinnati. That was a Christmas I never forgot. N. Delaware.

The Blessings of Christ's Appearance The Rev. Stanley L. Carlsen, Pastor Our Savior's Lutheran Church 2502 So. Jefferson ".. . The shepherds returned, glorifying and, praising God for all they had heard, and. teen, as it had been told to them.' 1 '' These humble folk from the Judean hills had every reason to "glorify and praise God." He had come to them with a message which called forth their greatest expressions of praise. In their memorable return trip from Bethlehem, their hearts were overflowing with the blessings they had received. For centuries Christians in their Churches have been singing the "Old Hundredth" doxology: "Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow." Certainly this majestic doxotogy is most applicable in this beautiful season as we consider the many BLESSINGS OF CHRIST'S APPEARANCE. 1. PEACE- Because Jesus Christ came, there is a true message of peace for mankind. It is not a story that promises the immediate destruction of the sword as a means of answering disputes. It is not a peaceful tale that lulls a man to sleep, and free from responsibilities and obligations. Basically it is a message that promises the individual, if he will open his hearr in faith, receiving God's message of salvation in Christ, he will be reconciled with his God. The lines of communication will be restored, and he will be established in the right relationship with his Maker. 2. JOY. "Joy to the World, the Lord Has Come." Many of you have already sung this majestic carol a number of times this year in your Church and home. This is the kind of Joy that is lasting and stable. It has an indestructible and eternal quality that cannot be duplicated. Itis the kind of possession that we may not label with a price tag, for it is priceless, it is that quality that lives on, even through physical pain, disappointment and failure; for it is founded and established in the eternal wisdom of God. It is offered by a loving God, regardless of our economic or social situation. His offer is nor limited by the human requirement and prejudices that we often express. Its only requirement is that in your heart you have prepared room for Htm. This is what caused one of His followers fo say: "Rejoice in the Lord always." The same man also said: "It is no longer I that lives, but Christ who lives in me." 3. FREEDOM. When Jesus began his public ministry He said He came to "set the captive free." Since that great promise, thousands of spiritual captives have been set free from that which has held them in bondage. Basically, all men, unless they have been touched by God's Grace in Christ, are living in spiritual slavery. They are all tied up in knots, bound by the chains of sin and guift. Until God in his mercy enters into men's fives, they remain behind the cruel prison bars. The story of Christmas is the account of God, making his appearance in human history, offering to every slave, the key to freedom. Jesus spoke of it in His own words, when He .said: "The Son of man came, not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give His life a ransom for many." Those who have come to know this experience of freedom have discovered that it is not a freedom to do what they please. Rather, they have found if to be a state of mind and heart, in which they have actually been freed from those binding forces that keep them from assuming the responsibilities of a true man. They have found the thrill of great responsibilities in a state of great freedom. 4. HOPE. Today's world needs a message of hope. The Christian message is the answer. Mankind is having a very difficult time answering the problems of the world's peoples. Rather than answers, more problems are appearing. "The best laid plans of mice and men," so often end in frustration and fruitless failure. Hopes are easily shattered; aspirations are struck^down; anticipations are silenced. People are asking: "Is there any hope?" Is there some definite hope to which we can cling, which will weather the storms of time, and the winds of men's adverse thoughts? The answer is in the Gospel of Christ, the one permanent hope. Today the Christian can sing with conviction: "On Christ the Solid Rock I Stand. All Other Ground is Sinking Sand." Thus Christians during this Christmas time can sinq- FROM WHOM ALL BLESSINGS FLOW." 'PRAISE GOD THE REV. STANLEY L.
