Perhaps we like the clown# best of all with their antics and their grinning faces.  But. the jolly face of a clown is not necessarily what it seems to be. A mask of humor might very well conceal a sad heart, and the jester could easily be living in a world of self-doubt.  Many people know this dilemnla. To the world they show a countenance of falseIgay-ety, but within there is disquiet. Why? It may be that these people have found no basil for genuine peace and contentment. And no amount of banter or pretense can heal a bruised spirit.  A basic faith Is essential to the soul oi every individual.
