East Clermont, Luther League and choir at 8 p. m Christmas music festival at Luther College in Decorah at 8 p. m. Tuesday, Dec. 16 —West Clermont, Parish Brotherhood at 8 p. m Christian Science Churches The subject of the lesson-sermon In all Churches of Christ, Scientist, for December 14, 1947 Is "God The Preserver. Of Man." The golden text la "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty." (Psalms 91:1) Selections from the Bible and from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy comprise the lesson- sermon. One of the Bible citations reads: "And one of the company said . unto him, Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me. And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you? And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life conslsteth not In the abundance of the things which, he possesseth." (Luke 12:13-15) From the Christian Science textbook la the following; "Christianity causes men to turn naturally from matter, to Spirit, as the flower turns from darkness to light. Man then appropriates those things which 'eye hath not seen nor ear heard.' Paul and John had a clear apprehension that, as mortal man achieves no worldly honors except by sacrifice, so be must gain heavenly riches by forsaking all worldllness."
