The program's title Is, "Being a Woman Isn't a Burden 1" This program shows how Christ Jesus' statement. "Woman, thou art looted from thine Infirmity," is relevant today. You may Hear it on Radio WGIL Sunday at 7:45 a.m. When someone shares t secret, it's on its way to becoming no secret at all. And yet it doesn't cease to be a secret until you have shared it. When Jesus preached in the wilderness, hundreds came miles to hear Him. They wanted to share His secret... lh§ stent of Got thi secret of Man and God. So right there in the wilderness, it was on its way to becom* Ing no secret at all. Except that, even today, not everyone ha •hired it. Academically every intelligent person knows what Christianity is all about. But each Sunday all over this world someone is finding in church a new strength, a new purpose, a new faith. For the heart of Christ's message brings a human soul into harmony with a mighty and loving God... whose power gives our lives direction... whose concern gives our lives meaning. The secret that was is still a secret, until YOU share it too. Sunday Monday I Samuel • Romans 1:8-28 3:2h31 Tuesday e.
