Many times, by teachings and example, Jesus brought forth to His disciples and followers the importance of finding faith and strength in the words of God. Once, urged by His disciples to rest from His teachings and partake of food, He reminded them of the importance of the fruits of His labour. Tempted by the devil to turn stone into bread, Jesus refused, answering that it was written man lived "not by bread alone, but by every word of God." Even in this modern world to- day, bread alone is not enough. A man may achieve fame and great wealth, only to discover something still in his search for happiness. Whatever his means, the man who lives by the words of God is richest of all. Read your BIBLE doily and GO TO CHURCH SUNDAY EMIL J. BUTT, PAINT 12930 S. WESTERN AVE.

FUlton 8-0341 A Lenten Message Prepared By Members Of The Kiwanis Club Of Blue Island WHAT MY RELIGION MEANS TO ME. By Arthur Newhouse Because I have faith in God I must trust Him at all times. I feel it necessary to seek His help and guidance daily not just in time of crisis. I desire to express my gratitude for all of the many bless- ings he showers upon us and for His constant love and care. When I do wrong, I am free to ask and receive God's for- giveness and his gift of salvation so that I can live a life that is pleasing to him and be prepared for eternal life. I believe that regular attendance at Church Services is essential and ihat if I follow the Golden Rule "Do unto others as I would have them do unto me" I will be serving God and my fellowman.

The denomination's growing world mission program opened work in Chile and Bermuda, and the first Nazarene church in the Republic of Panama was organ- ized. The Nazarenes now have work in 43 countries. Also abroad the Nazarenes or- ganized a new church district in West Germany with five con- gregations, and dedicated a sanctuary at Frankfurt and a church in Copenhagen, Denmark. Opened was a church at Nazareth, Israel, the first Pro- testant church to be built in Is- rael since the nation was re-es- tablished in 1948; and a new church at Brasilia, the first Pro- testant church to be dedicated in the new inland capital of Brazil. The denomination's Spanish language broadcast of "Show- ers of denomination- al radio program, increased to 110 stations, while the English program was carried on 425 sta- tions. Meanwhile, the church at home set a denominational record in per capita giving of This was an increase of a member over 1961 when the denomination ranked first in the nation in per capita giving among all Protestant churches with members or more.
