There was an ancient worthy who had a dream. Having pillowed his head on a Stone he dreamt that Angels were going up and Down a ladder that stretched Between him and heaven. Jacob s dream has the Mark of reality. This is what happens when people Pray. It is this two Way traffic that makes the difference. Prayer in t self induced cheer or a psychological exer else. It is the opening of life so that the Power needed and which we can never achieve on our own May be received. It is knowing someone to thank it will be a discipline for us to Pray in this lenten season if we Pray for the russian people and for Castro and for that matter for some of our neighbors. What will some of the people Pray for in the place where i live sometime the music makers in Broadway Point up a need which we ought to have noted for ourselves. For instance there s a relevance to the words from my fair lady in which each verse of the refrain ends with the words show we the conversation of prayer demands this demonstration. Show me godly prayer demands acts of godly courage. I wanted to help the boy on the train and the intricacies of language made it exceedingly difficult. Yet i shall Pray for this unknown Friend. This is a time which requires men who can live in league with Power beyond themselves. We All need to know the god whom we can thank lest we try to distract ourselves from distraction by distraction. Or from frustration by violent rebellion. This is a time when our very consciences can be stirred by the simple invitation let us religion in the news min Wanca Star club is Given supper report the min Wanca Star club met Friday evening at Robinson memorial Hall West grand Avenue old Orchard Beach with the president miss Kay Mewer presiding.
