(AP)-Each Sunday, a Louisville minister delivers a silent sermon. The 65 members of his congregation are deaf. The Rev. Robert M. Landes, 24, communicates in sign language. "The deaf need foe Bible's message, too," said Landes, pastor of the Fourth Avenue Baptist Church for the Deaf, "and this is my way of serving the cause of the Lord." Landes became interested in work for the deaf when it was discovered that his older brother was deaf in one ear. He learned to "sign" the alphabet with his brother and during his freshman year at Carson-Newman College in Jefferson City, Tenn. At college, Landes recalled, he had a friend who was deaf. The friend failed in school, and the last thing he said before leaving was, "I'll pray that you will become a missionary for the deaf." The following summer, Landes established a deaf ministry in Seattle under a Southern Baptist Convention program. A year later, he and his brother established a deaf ministry in their home church at Richmond, Va. "The Lord was leading and everything opened up," Landes said, explaining how he came to Louisville and obtained a separate congregation for the deaf. It is one of perhaps five such churches in the country. During the year and a half he has been pastor of the Louisville church, Landes has seen his congregation grow rapidly. A virtually untapped source of manpower needed can and should bo the handicapped. both services by Rev. Glenn Catlin, brother of Rev. Dale Catlin.

These Religious Messages ore published under the auspices of Galesburg's Churches ond are sponsored by Galesburg'* Business Firms ENERGY : JUNIOR SIZE \ How wonderful is enthusiasm. Mom and Dad will forgive this noise. They catch the spirit and joy of their young drummer boy. Enthusiasm is not limited to small fry. But as we grow older, these joyous moments when our spirits ride high, wear thin and are diluted by everyday cares. This is true of our religious experience. Often we are filled with eager enthusiasm when we pray and worship. Our church can guide this energy in channels of service and love. But often our religious enthusiasm fails. In these moments when our spirits lag, we are sustained and encouraged by the enthusiasm of our fellow Christians. How wonderful is enthusiasm. Come to church to have it renewed — Sunday and always. Copyright 1963, Keister Advertising Service, Inc., Strasburg, Va. THE CHURCH FOR ALL ALL FOR THE CHURCH The Church is the greatest factor on earth for the building of character and good citizenship. It is a storehouse of spiritual values. Without a strong Church, neither democracy nor civilization can survive. There are four sound reasons why every person should attend services regularly and support the Church. They are: (1) For his own sake. (2) For his children's sake. (3) For the sake of his community and nation. (4) For the sake of the Church itself, which needs his moral and material support. Plan to go to church regularly and read your Bible daily.
