take it God He came up Paul Tillich used to say that we come up against some things in life that will not And all we can do is let them change Thats pretty close to the Alcoholics Anonymous Prayer God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot Thats what Paul He faced the fact that he would have to live with whatever it was that had got ten under his That he would be limited by But thats when he heard God say two things to My grace is enough for you and my strength is greatest when you are weak 2 Corinthians It is seldom our first choice to have to live with something that wont go But

Church We are passing through what is probably the strangest and most criti cal period of the worlds jGreat nations are at war with one with the relentless en the one of aggressive domina and on the of equally lelentlcss Smaller nations arc suffering cruelly their countries are overrun and their people Countless thousands already have perished and many more have been rendered homeless and reduced to utmost poverty and Jn the face of all these things it is little Jvonder that one hears on all hands the Why doesnt God stop his j It is an agelong David VO how long wilt Thous look on and the prophet lookest Thou upon them that dealt treacherously and boldest Thou tongue the man of does not God po something about it What the question implies ihat there is a God to intervene sec that God has an interest in man that He could stop the war that He ought to do But the of the problem why does He not stop it Let us approach the diffi culty by considering several pertinent r Is one nation so godly and of such clean record that it becomes obvious that God ought to side with them and grant them victory On the every nation has in these latter years become pleasure and acted in all respects as if His existence had no bearing upon their course of conduct in behaved in such a manner as might be calculated to provoke His wrath rather than His good Everything which a beneficient Creator has man has taken and turned to indulge his own forgetting the God gave man a and he in turn has used it to rea son against and then boasts of all his inventive ability as though God had not given Now left to man is using that very genius to make marvelous weapons of destruction with which to kill his fellow Briefly Their feet are swift to shed blood destruction and misery are in their 3 And then we may ask how should God intervene If He hi strict divine justice should undertake to judge the wrong in the where should He begin and where would He end Who could escape Few would want Him to go that just even if He must May not then His non intervention be an indication of mercy rather than indifference Here then is the answer to the ques Why does God not stop the war He permits mans wrath to accomplish His greater purpose of in keeping with His greatest intervention which took place 2000 years ago when He dealt once and for all with the root of the trouble For the root cause of all the chaos in Sec 6 Planning for the future Officers and board members of Cross Lutheran Church met recently to set goals for The planning meetings were preceded by a spe cial message from the Ray
