CHAPMAN, MINISTER , (Morgu Park Baptist dmrch, Chicago), The other day-1 was speaking with a young man who had achieved prominence in his profession. In the course of our conversation he spoke of his determination to make more money and to become a-greater success. Then, with a tinge of sadness in his voice, he said, "In fact, if I do not make more money, my wife will reject me." For a moment I was hesitant to intrude into the pain ot that statement. It was as if he were saying, "unless I perform and produce, I will be dismissed." Such a mood permeates our society. The great god of American life is usefulness. Unless a building has current value, it is torn down. History is of little consequence. Whenever a person reaches 65 years of age, he is put out to pasture. He has lived beyond bis prime. It is not surprising that a deep sense of anxiety saturates American life. We never know from one moment to the next when we will become unnecessary and unwanted. '·Given our society's estimate of our worth, it is difficult r for us to accept God's evaluation of our lives. We fully expect our Heavenly Father to be as judgmental and punitive as the society of which we are a part. But that is not the case. God's love for each one of us is not determined by how well we perform or to what extent we achieve. Rather, it Is based upon what God is and who we are. z Karl Earth, a European theologian, was asked what ESP Irene Model #CKCO25B7A 24.500 B.T.U.

Spring will be somewhat hot--so in late March and eaily April we'll have some hot days--but violent storms at the end of April and May. Governments across the world are in dramatic changing patterns. In my Sept. 23, 1976, column I mentioned trouble would break out in Tanzania. It has. There'll be many other government rulers in jeopardy and great difficulty personally this year--West Germany's leader; Park Dung Hee of South Korea; Suharto of Indonesia; Marcos of the Philippines, who will probably lose in any election this year; Hirihito of Japan will, I predict be in physical danger in the. fall and will exit from power. About the same time, I predict Gen. Augusto Pino- chet Ugarte of Chile will flee for his life. It's my psychic' impression that attempts on the lives of Markarios of Greece and Fidel-Castro this year will happen, and, I have already predicted that ' Castro will be replaced with someone else. x Letters "How true is it that there will be great waves in Lake Michigan this year?

However, I wouldn't worry about it. was the most important truth be had ever learned. This scholarly man, whose abilities and achievements were monumental, replied, "When I was in Sunday school, I learned the song, 'Jesus loves me! this I know, For the Bible-tells me so.' That's the most important thing I ever learned." , t To live with the assurance that we are loved by God is the most important truth any one of us can learn. It can set us free from those forces which make us less than we are. It can liberate us to become what we desire. A young mother was stung and hurt when her little girl angrily shouted, "I don't love you anymore!" The mother groped for the right answer. "Never mind," she said simply, "I love you enough for both of us." This seemed to take care of the situation at the time, but she did not realize how well until the day when her younger child cried, "I don't love you, Mommy." At this the big sister spoke quickly. "Never'mind. Mommy has love enough for everybody. She will fill you up again." , Such is the size and the quality of God's love. He loves us even when we don't love ourselves and can't love others. He loves us even when we feel unwanted and unacceptable. He loves us and fills us up when we feel empty. It is when we'accept the love of God into the depths of our being that we can become our best selves. Jesus once told of a man who was possessed by a demon. As time passed, he got rid of the demon and gloried in his newfound freedom. But then seven demons entered Ms life and placed him under a new bondage! Jesus' point was simple. You and I will be filled "with something. As nature abhors a vac- cum, so does toe human soul. We cannot remain empty. Either we will be filled with the good things of life or we will be captivated by evil. Do you want to be free from the negative forces of life? Focus on God's love for you. Do you desire freedom from the destructive powers which surround you? Trust God's unconditional acceptance of you. Do you wish to become your best self? Let God love you. paper lace i 3M1 W. tSth SL SPAPLRJTJ SM-1MC around? With no car it was hard to get around. Now, with an RTA Transfer, Sheila and I can go anywhere for 6W each.
