And when you watched a sunflower turn toward the sun? And when you tried to guess where the pot of gold was at the end of the rainbow? Life is full of sweet mysteries for the young. Do you remember? In fact, life reveals even more sweet mysteries as we grow older. When we think of these things, the mysteries of life, of God's care of us, of the wonders of the universe—you know, that's a way of praying! Yes, just thinking about God. Fortunately, too, we have the Church—your church —a place to contemplate such things, to pray, to ask questions, and give thanks to Almighty God. Go to the church of your choice this Sunday. There you will find some of the answers ... to some of these wondrous mysteries. Bmdir IWtoi M.MJ 4J-4-* IJJO-/7 £0-19 S.t-19 SWrta- Adnrtttiv Smta, tea, Strarfwrr, Va. THE CHURCH FOR ALL . . .
