This is (he time for restoring energies, and breaks the day's pace. The; Lord set aside a day for rest and worship. This day allows us to be in the Lord's house and renews our energies for the week to come. Th« Church is God's appointed agency in this world for spreading the knowledge of His love for man and of His demand for man to respond to mat love by loving his neighbor. Without this grounding in the love of Cod, no government or society or way of life will long persevere and the freedoms which we hold s« dear will inevitably perish. Therefore, even from o selfish point of view, ont should support the Church for the sake of the welfare of himself and his family. Beyond that, however, every person should uphold and participate in the Church because it tells the truth about man's life, death and destiny; the truth which alone will set him free to live as a child of God.
