Economist Newspapers, Wednesday, March 16,1977 Enjoy the journey By IAN M. CHAPMAN, MINISTER (Mcrgai Park Baptist chvch, Chlca**) Last summer I went home. In 19S11 immigrated to the U.S. from Scotland and from that time I never wanted to go back. America was my country. America was my home. I wanted to enjoy its scenery and to taste its benefits. But my feelings changed. A desire grew within me to go home. I am not sure of the reason. I think it had something to do with the realization that part of me belonged to Scotland. It had something to do with the feeling that neither my wife nor my children would ever know me as I truly am until they could see the little town outside of Glasgow where I once lived. I came to the conclusion that they would never understand me until they visited the "cow's Geld" where I played soccer, or the loch where I fished and the church which I attended. I began to believe that they would never know me in the deepest sense until they walked down Princess st. in Edinburgh and heard the toe-tapping skirl of the bagpipes and saw the highlands drenched in purple heather. I knew, as Thomas Wolfe once wrote, "You can't go home again." Nevertheless, my need became very real to recapture my roots and to rediscover my heritage. There is a sense in which all of us need to go home. We need to begin that spiritual journey to recapture the roots of our true selves and become complete and whole. We need to make that pilgrimage into our heritage of faith to discover the source of our lives. The Christian faith declares all of us are created by God. The dominant truth which emerges from the Book of Genesis is that we are not accidental beings. We are not the result of blind chance or some chemical interaction. We are the product of God's hands; the result of His divine love. With our lives so deeply rooted in God, it is true to say that only as the creature lives in relationship with his Creator can life be lived well. Only as yon and I keep close to the source of our lives can life become meaningful. Only as we live by the directives of the one who has made us will our lives be worthwhile. It is at this point, -however, the tragedy of the human situation is revealed. People tend to live on human terms rather than on God's terms. They flaunt their souls and deny their heritage in an attempt to be free and fulfilled. They think that as the created ones they know bow to live and act as though they were the Creator himself. If the last few years have taught us any lesson, it is that man is not sufficient far living by himself. If anything, man by himself destroys rather than creates. He tears down rather man builds up. There is a story of a French soldier whose face was so scarred by shrapnel that none of his friends or family could recognize him. He was also * victim of amnesia. When picked up at a railway station, wandering around in confusion, aU he could say was, "I don't know who I am! I don't know who I am!" He was taken first to one village and then to another, in hopes that familiar Business advisory group slates meet The first meeting of the newly-formed Third Congressional district Business Advisory group will lie held Saturday from 10 a.m. until noon in the formal lounge at St Xavier college, 103rd and Central Park ave. "Numerous members of the business community in the district have approached me requesting die establishment of an advisory group on matters relating to the problems of the business community and this first meeting will be important in setting the direction for mis group in the coming months," said U.S. Hep. Martin Russo (D-3rd). The group wfll discuss in this and future meetings, the Federal Crime Insurance program, procurement procedures, the Office of Advocacy for Small Business, OSHA and products liability. It also wfll provide input to Russo on the concerns of the business community over the impact of government on their operations. fJwTRODCICfMG.. FEDDERS FLEXHERMETIC n Model SCKCO25B7A 24,500 B.T.U.

Finally, as he was led into the third village, he began to recognize familiar things. He advanced ahead of his companions, turned off on a little side street into a garden path and followed it to the door of his father's house. He had come home. In his own home he knew again who be was. All of us need to go home. We need to rediscover our roots and our heritage. When we return to our Heavenly Father, we discover our roots and ourselves.
