Satellite Refugees in Reunion A unique experiment In in ternational relations is being tried out in Pasadena withou publicity or fanfare. It is called the German Alliance Meetinj and services are held eacl Sunday night at Trinity Meth odist Church, Villa St. at Sum mit Ave. Five ministers wh serve this unusual congrega tion all were born and raisec in different countries when many natives speak the Ger man language. Their 'nativ lands were Yugoslavia, Hun gary, Russia, Germany an Switzerland. Under the general supervi sion of the Rev. R. Zurbuchen a retired Methodist minister who refuses to stay retired, th group held its second anniver sary last Sunday night and th Bcrmon was by the Rev. Ferdi nand Drumm. The message was based on the 84th Psalm, so ap propriate because the large part of the assembly-was mad up of refugees from satellit countries, Yugoslavia, Poland Hungary, Rumania, Bulgaria Czechoslovakia, the Baltic coun tries and even All speak the from Russia German Ian The coffee break teems to have estab- lished itself as a basic feature of American business life. New office buildings and fac- tories set aside special rooms for this daily ritual, symbolized by great, shining urns. Coffee breaks are written into union con- tracts and employers who refuse to permit them are regarded as hopelessly old- fashioned. Now, I'm not opposed to coffee breaks, but a friend of mine, Dr. Roy L. Smith, a well-known California writer, has come across a better idea. He sug- gests that, instead of taking a coffee break, why not take a "Bible if IT'S AN EXCELLENT suggestion, and I presented the idea in some speeches. One man tells me that he had up his mind that instead of going out and chatting idly with his associates over a cup of coffee for 15 minutes or so, he would spend that 15 min- utes in his office, reading the Bible. He also had his cup of coffee there, but the important thing for him was to spend that time reading the Bible. Reading 15 min- utes a day, five days a week, he managed to cover each of the Psalms and all of the New Testament in a very short time. He reports that the result has been quite remarkable. When he started his "Bible he'd had a lot of difficulties and there were con- flicts, and problems he couldn't resolve. But as he filled his mind with the great words of the Bible, his problems began to come into better focus. He finally decided that there are four great principles which he had acquired from this reading and which gave him a Mil! "MIAKS" _ lyNOMMNVmCMTNAlE power to Mlve his problems he had never had before. THE FIRST was belief. He learned to believe that through God'i help he could do what he had to do. He learned finally to be- lieve in God, and as a result, also in himself, in his work, in other people. Next, he learned to think in an atmos- phere of calm and quiet You can't think successfully without inward calm and quiet When he that, his mind worked better. Third, he regained a belief in his power to work. Instead of scattering his energies and leaking away his power, he was able to apply himself with concentration. He learned to work effectively. And last, but not least important, he discovered that you must give yourself to have yourself. He found the creative impor- tance of sharing as a life principle. He began to tithe, that is, to give 10 per cent of his income to his church, and to give generously to help other people. But he also tithed or shared his time and abilities. He gave him- self, and in so doing found himself. THESE THEN are the four great prin- ciples of power this man discovered in his daily reading of. the Bible: believe, think, work and share. It was the application of these principles in his own life that lifted him over his difficulties. His daily "Bible break" showed him the way. So, if you really want to solve your own problems, try that "Bible break" habit and get those basic power principles deeply em- bedded in your own mind. As you and I apply the simple, basic techniques of overcoming difficulty which are found in the Bible, life can be much better. Try a daily "Bible break" and see for yourself.
