Bennington Banner (Newspaper) - May 28, 1966, Bennington, Vermont 6-Benn in ton Banner. Saturday. May 28, 1966 the holy spirit is explained As god s presence in the heart Bennington area Church events by Loi is Tassi to up religion editor in reply to the perennial cry that a god is dead a christianity has maintained for 2,000 years that direct empirical proof of gods existence is available to any person who honestly seeks it. The proof christians say is the living presence of the holy spirit which can be experienced by each individual for himself. This sunday May 29christians of All nations denominations will join in Power of f Aith to he a Iloma in lecture the Power of Faith prayer will be explored at 3 . Next saturday june 4, in a one hour Public lecture on Christian science at the first Church of Christ scientist at the Corner of Hillside Silver Street. Howard la. Irwin c.s., of tile Christian science Board of l lectureship will speak under sponsorship of the local Church on a Christian science tile Healing prayer of Irwin served during world War ii with the United states military intelligence service in i Europe. Since then he has devoted his full time to the Public practice of Christian science Healing. His present assignment take him throughout the United states other countries to lecture on this religion. He is a former teacher in Public private schools of California where he still resides. Celebrating the feast Day of the holy spirit known As Pentecost or whitsunday. Many Church members have great difficulty in understanding some of the verbal formulae such As the doctrine of the Trinity which theologians have constructed in an Effort to explain who the holy spirit is what he does. This is not surprising. The Bible indicates that the Workings of the spirit will always remain mysterious to men. The simplest child can experience his reality but the Wisest Man cannot fully comprehend it. Those who Are baffled by trinitarian terminology May find it easier to think of the holy spirit simply As gods Active presence in the world particularly within the hearts minds of human beings. This presence was so palpable its effects so dramatic among members of the Early Christian Community that the Nev testament is filled with awed references to the Power of Trie spirit. Men who were a filled with the spirit found themselves Able to transcend limitations that had always beset them. An inarticulate Fisherman like Peter lie came an eloquent preacher. A self entered zealot like Paul acquired a warm compassionate love for Mankind. In his letter to the Christian Community in Galatia Paul catalogued some of the traits of character personality that men women display when the spirit takes Possession of their lives. A the fruit of the spirit a said the apostle a is love Joy peace patience kindness Good Javery memorials 517 South Street Bennington Vermont All mrs Ernest la. Javierv. Mrs. Alan ii. A Ness faithfulness gentleness on another occasion Paul said Liat those who surrender their wills to the holy spirit Are a mightily strengthened in the inner no matter How timid or selfish or downright Nasty they might be pm their own with the help of the spirit they could become Christ like in character. Another realm of the spirits activity emphasized in the new testament is the intellect. Working through the natural processes of human thought but at a level even deeper than intuition or the unconscious the spirit guides men in the search for truth. And this help is not restricted to those who consciously profess religious Faith. Wherever men sincerely seek the truth the spirit is at work. A scientist who thinks of himself As agnostic but now is deeply dedicated to the Pursuit of truth May be much More open to the guidance of the spirit than a religious fanatic with a closed mind. But the Bible also teaches that the spirits guidance if accepted will ultimately Lead to a knowledge of god a a direct apprehension of the reality of god which goes far beyond Mere belief in his probable existence. The new testament Speaks often of the role of the spirit As an inward witness or source of Assurance. A when we cry a our father a it is the spirit himself bearing witness with our spirit that we Are children of god a Paul told the christians of Rome. Jesus told his disciples that the gift of the holy spirit is available to All who ask for it. If even sinful men Are disposed to give Good gifts to their children he said on one occasion a How much More will your heavenly father give the holy spirit to them that ask prayers for the guidance of the holy spirit abound in Christian Liturgy. One of the shortest Best is found in the anglican Book of common prayer a to god for Smuch As without thee we Are not Able to please thee mercifully Grant that thy holy spirit May in All things direct Rule our first Baptist Church 8 30 la .

It ousts religion from the finest churches turns them into museums injects a dash of atheist propaganda shows them off for what they Are a architectural marvels of a bygone age. There is More to Kiev than its churches. The City is built on Hills it boasts winding streets sudden flights of stairs dramatic views sprightly shops enough Trees Parks to make it one of Europe a greenest cities. Despite a population of a million a plus a huge Industrial District Kiev enjoys the relaxed air common to Many Southern Hilly cities communist non communist. But Kiev a glory is its history a this ancient City founded the russian nation a that history is expressed most vividly in its churches. The Central Church is St. Sophia a Cathedral Kiev a oldest building a towering onion domed edifice dating Back to 1037 a.d., when Prince Yaroslav the Wise made it the Center of a Kiev for centuries the Church was the scene of Cor nations state occasions. It was the site of Kiev a first school the Home of the metropolitan of the russian orthodox Church. Religion left St. Stophia a in 1934. Today it is a museum of gilded domes awesome towers splendid mosaics a including an altar mosaic of Blue Gold that has not been touched since the 12th Century yet is still in perfect condition.

The Vermont symphony concert in Weston saturday evening was enjoyed by All including the children some of whom a enjoyed it More than any concert they had Ever the program seemed Well chosen to please the ears of the very Young As Well As older people. The list of patrons was Large numbering about 80 couples. The Community club in Weston which sponsored the concert this year lowered the Price of tickets for the symphony considerably this year happily sold twice As Many. Even More spectacular is the vast Kiev Pecherskaya Lavra Kiev Cave monastery. In prehistoric times Cavemen dwelt in the Cliffs along the Banks of the Dnieper River. In the Lith Century monks moved into the caves which became catacombs. An ensemble of churches grew i the surface at one time controlled 200 towns 56,000 serfs. Some monks continued to live in the catacombs took to burying other monks or Rich citizens of Kiev there. Because of the Cool dry air a a the health atmosphere a As one Guidebook puts it a the bodies did not rot but mummified. They Are still there dozens of them lining the corridors of the catacombs. A few Are uncovered. But most Are shrouded with Only one withered Brown hand protruding Dracula style through Tassel led slits in the shrouds. The sideshow atmosphere of the Tours inevitably detracts from the solemnity of death. So does the guides remark that the a monks diverted the people from the revolutionary some churches within the Lavra were functioning As recently As five years ago. All now Are museums one High domed Cathedral within the Walls has been turned into a planetarium explaining the creation of the Earth universe scientifically. Schoolchildren shout in the catacombs the guides Tell How monks sold mummification to the wealthy. An old woman mumbles a prayer before a collection Box a now used Only for show stuffs in the stub of her ticket to the catacombs. Kiev officially disapproves of religion. But it realizes that the russian orthodox Church is an inseparable part of its history gives it due Honor. The proof could not be plainer. It is the statue of St. Vladimir a Kiev Prince who established russian orthodoxy As the state religion with a mass Bap. Tis in in the Dnieper in the year 988. The statue stands High on a Hill Over Kiev. Vladimir s gaze is fixed on the spot where the baptism took place. And his right hand holds a giant Cross a the highest landmark in this communist capital. A. Wherefore be be not unwise but understanding what the will of the lord the theme is explained in detail in selections to be read from the Christian science textbook including these a in a world of sin sensuality hastening to a greater development of Power it is Wise earnestly to consider whether it is the human mind or the divine mind which is influencing one. No person is benefited by yielding his mentality to any mental despotism or malpractice.
