Christian Church Drive (Continued from page 1) BY RUTH WADDELL Our church is smoldering, and our tears mingle with the ashes, as we feel the de}ectmn of our loss. Friends ever,vhere are generous with kindly words as we are saying, "What shall we: do." One thinks of Tennyson as he was humble before God when he said, "Behold we know not anything." Tennyson was eighty- four years old and the world had given him everything, but he said, "I ,want to know more a- bout God." We, too. "want to know more about God," so as a minister from another denomi- nation so graciously says, "Come and worship with us," we go, and the spirit of cooperation in the joint service on Easter Sunday is wonderful and will long be remembered. Paul teaches us a good lesson when he took a tiny seed in his hand and said, "Behold I show you a mystery." It seems that when no man can explain the mystery of the seed and how it grows and the marvels of the leaf, bud, flower and fruit, all hidden in that tiny circumfer- ence, we, too, might say "Behold we know not anhing. '' In faith we plant the seed, it grows and it brings forth fruit. We are near- er to God on the farm and in a rural community and should feel closer to Him than anywhere in the world, for His presence is in each growing thing. May we as a community stretch out to a broader horizon as we remem- ghter, Miss Dorothy. ber one who said so long ago, The band of Purdue University, j ......... w Lafayette, Indiana, in full mill- i tie maKem me grass, to gro tary uniform, will be one of the iupn a tnousana niiis, we iee bands appearing at the famous we are co-worKers xith God FLOWERS !when we sow the seed, and we tinue in the spirit d read messages when the tiny tion and work togethe/ seed, so full of mystery, comes up and speaks to us from the bosom of old mother earth. We prune the grape vines and as we clip and cut, we think of Christ and His words (John 15) "My father is the Husbandman I am the vine, ye are the branc[ es." Jesus, no doubt, pruned the vines as they were staples in old Palestine and he knew all about their culture and their fruit. He knew the nature of the vine-of his day, so when he gave the wine at Cana, it was the true i juice of the vine. "My Father is the Husand- man, I am the Vine, ye are the branche." When we think of the branches, we think of the child- ren of today and tomorrow, and the problem we face today should be the concern of everyone in the whole community. So for the children, we think of Longfellow, the "children's poet," who said, "Look not mournfully into the past. It comes not back again. Wisely improe the present. It is thine. Go forth to meet the shodowy future without fear and with a manly heart." "Behold we know not any. thing" of the possibilities that are ous and like Tennyson, we are reverent before the Great Source of all mysteries. So as we have to pull dovrn the char- red walls that was once our church, and clear away the ash- es and our tears, may we con- a church, welcoming ices, its SacramentS, membership all who follow Jesus Christ. that we have hard and may we work pruned the vines and ized the common We know of His hard toil and sweat of long heavy tasks of enter laborer.
