I . -t li. !!t77 Enjoy the journey By UN M. CHAPMAN, MINISTER / (Morgan Park Baplisl church, Chicago) On that first Easter morning, Jesus arose from the tomb and lovingly called Mary by her name. The resurrection's meaning is found in that simple greeting. To be sure, the resurrection means the victory of Christ over the powers of death and evil. It announces the beginning of a new era within the world's history. But, on a more personal level, the resurrection means Jesus calls each one of us by our name. We should'not be surprised by that Throughput his ministry our Lord related to people with sensitivity. He assured a lonely people of the infinite care of a Heavenly Father who numbered the hairs of their beads, and who was even aware of a small, insignificant bird like a sparrow. The message was clear. God was not some distant deity, far removed and unconcerned. He was present in the midst of life. People today overwhelmed by the immensity of an impersonal society--a society Which places profit before persons and productivity above people. People are rarely an end in themselves; they are merely the means by which others get ahead. It is only to be expected that many people feel deeply frustrated. Longfellow portrayed this dilemma with these words: ~ \ Ships that pass in the night and speak to each other in passing Only a signal shown and a distant voice in the darkness, So, on the ocean of life, we pass and speak with one another, Only a look and voice, the darkness again, and a silence. Another author has likened our situation to marbles in a bag. We touch one another but only at the outer edges. We do not become acquainted with people on a deep enough level to overcome the solitude and loneliness of present day life. A young stenographer in Atlanta confessed: "I live with three other girls in a big apartment complex that caters to singles. Sometimes on weekends there are as many as 15 or 20 people'in our apartment at one time, but I am still lonely." WET BASEMENTS PERMANtNUY WATERPROOFED PERMA-SHIELD 9428 S.

For a while ,tlKy all shared in (heir sport with a great deal of enthusiasm, but then 1 noticed two of them going off and playing by themselves, ignoring their third playmate. It was not long until this little boy cried out: "I'm still here! I'm here! Don't you see that I'm here?" Although this little fellow would not have been able to philosophize about it or analyze it psychologically, he cried out of a need that he sensed could only be met by another person. His cry expressed a universal hunger. He wanted affirmation and recognition. He wanted to be a somebody. The Easter message, which calls to us from the empty , tomb, reminds us we are not forgotten. We are not left behind, ignored or unwanted. Christ is with us, and what is more, he knows our names. As he was raised from the grave by the power of God, so he raises us to a new level of living. He calls to us by name and empowers us to rise to the occasion of life KNOW YOUR FBI You can resist crime.

Diabetes benefit April 23 Money for diabetes rest-arch will be raised through a volleyball marathon to be held April 23. The marathon will be held simultaneously at Downers Grove South and Homewood-Flossmoor high schools from 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m Chicago area sports and entertainment personalities will participate, and proceeds will be used to fund research toward a cure for diabetes. Diabetes research receives little governmental funding in contrast to other major diseases, the Juvenile Diabetes foundation reported. The foundation, which is holding the marathon, de- voles more than 80 per cent of all funds ,raised to research in such areas as the development of an artificial pancreas and the transplanting of insulin producing cells. Persons interested in playing in the volleyball marathon are urged to call 963-1616. Other fund raising activities will be held during May, which is national diabetes month. They include the solicitation of funds in shopping centers, at railroad stations and door-to- door.
