The Irth Bridge Herald j7gff0f0fl saturday August 18, 1984 stability with the flux even without any major trial in out lives most of us find human existence to he a round of and Downs. This impression runs deeper than simply the fluctuations of our Persona moods. Rights sound and electricity Funda mental composites of our world Are understood As Waves and the Earth itself seems to hang on a framework of tides cycles and seasons. Theories of biorhythms astrology and economics try to Analyse the constant fluctuation but offer Little satisfaction for he deep longing within each of us for stability. Can we find real stability in our pres ent circumstances a favorite hymn presents a hopeful standpoint in heavenly love abiding no change my heart shall fear and Safe is such confiding for nothing changes Here. .1 the fact that life in god divine love is changeless does not mean it s Monot Onous. We May think that spiritual existence is Sta tic that peace Means silence and stability Means the absence of movement. But these Are material measurements which cannot is to see the changeless Quality of divine love when trusting in material circumstances to provide it. Mary Baker Eddy the discoverer and foun Der of Christian science writes a realization of the shifting scenes of human happiness and of the frailly of mortal anticipations such As first led me to the Leet of Christian science seems to be requisite at every stage of a Confidence and Security Are not external they Are internal within our consciousness and therefore within our present reach. They Are qualities we express not conditions we acquire. But As we do express these qualities circumstances Are inevitably harmonized. Stability in its truest sense is spiritual and eternal. Do we think of Eter nity As unending time or rather As unmeasured by time stability is a fundamental aspect of life in god not an add on feature. Real life As the out come of god of divine life itself is altogether Independent of the mortal measurement of time. Life is the con define the Christly presence of peace tenuous and consistent expression of the influence of divine love in our lives is infinitely varied perfectly adapted to the human need. As Christ Jesus said when explaining the certainty of our father s provision what Man is there of you whom if his son ask bread will he give him a .2 understanding the changeless nature of divine love to care for the human need enabled Jesus to respond to the demands in his life with Healing. As the very embodiment of the saving Christ he had the sensitivity to recognize the human need and reply to it whatever the circumstances of the moment. The changeless plan of divine love for Man includes health and holiness Freedom from sickness and sin As the master taught and illustrated. God As love Independent of the Waves intrinsic to material concepts and sys tems. As we grasp something of the spiritual nature of stability Well no longer try wilfully to Staple Down Ever Chang ing circumstances. Our ambition won t be to arrange Home Job education and relationships neatly once and for All. Fear of change is healed through understanding that nothing fluctuates in the Quality of god s love for Man. Then we Are less moved by volatile circumstances and better Able to Demon Strate Good. The spiritually minded person takes Delight in the full time Enterprise of acknowledging divine life and love As present Here on Earth and Active through the Christ. He magnifies this although at present this Freedom is fact mentally cherishes it silently and dimly perceived the saving Christ ratifies it in thought and action. This expressed so completely by Jesus is Frame a mind far from escapism or still present today. Through our Indi Wishful thinking better approaches the visual receptivity to the Christ and our spiritual authority that enabled Jesus living of the Christ spirit we become to walk on the Waves of a turbulent sea More willing to accept god s perfect and to Calm the sea altogether plan and better Able to respond to each in today s Waves personal famil moment s need. Ial or worldwide the Christ arouses How can we better recognize the within us a deeper sense of Security. Christ operating in our lives there our stability is always sure when found Are Many aspects to this sober Chal in Christ. Lenge. One of them is that we need to i. Christian science hymnal no. 148.

Luke Shanks went ahead without capital Magazine began on shoestring by Pamela go than Christian science Monitor More than a decade ago Shanks a Washington d.c., lawyer decided to take a sabbatical from his Active practice. He gathered his wife and two Small children and moved to Jerusalem for a year there he joined a Bible study group involved himself in archaeology and wrote a Book the City of David a guide to biblical Jeru it was an instant Success. That was the beginning. By the time he returned to the United states Shanks had decided he enjoyed his new subject so much that he would try to launch a Magazine dealing with it. He wrote a prospectus and sent it to a number of businessmen scholars philanthropists and people in publishing. I got one response saying it was a Good he says. Then i sen out another 25 memos to the same people thanking them for their heartwarming response and telling them we now had enough Money to go ahead with the mag Azine. We went ahead with no thus the biblical archaeology review bar was born. The first Issue was a 7-by-10-Inch edition of pages. It contained one photograph in Black and White. This year biblical archaeology review is celebrating its 10th anniversary. Since that Humble beginning in 1974 it has won an International audience of observers of the Field say it has filled a Niche neglected by the scientific and technical archaeology journals. It does this by offering scholarly and accurate accounts of work in the Mideast in language Lay readers can enjoy. It also prides itself on Superb reproduction of color photographs. In Addi Tion it makes a Point of highlighting Amateur archaeology and carrying information about opportunities for volunteers to participate in digs. David Noel Freedman editor of the Anchor Bible series published by Doub Leday and a professor of biblical studies at the University of Michigan says the biblical archaeology review s Success May lie in the very fact that ller Shel Shanks is not a scholar and therefore understands How to Bridge the Gap Between the specialist and the Layman. Freedman Calls bar s Success quite or. Robert ,1. Bull a member of the american school of Oriental research comments there s no doubt that bar is a tremendous service to the Ever widening Public interested in archaeology concerned with the Shanks recalls that when he launched the review my thought was to have a Magazine of ideas because i did t think there was much visual in palestinian archaeology. Just one Rock pile after he says with a laugh. It was because of my willingness to change and get visual that we Are now celebrating the Ruth anniversary. Elaborating on his editorial philosophy he says we have leading archaeologists around the world writing for us but we go through an elaborate editorial process the outcome of which is High level scholarship that s readable understandable and engaging without look ing Down on the through its emphasis on Volunteer archaeology tile Magazine has made another kind of contribution. Dig directors Tell says Shanks that some times More than half of their volunteers come from bar. We re filling a Lacuna that no one else has also offered Are vacation seminars in which bar brings people to College campuses for a week to study with biblical scholars. This year six Are planned. Fitting work on the Magazine mostly into his evenings and weekends Shanks also has an associate editor business manager and handful of staff Mem Bers. In its first 10 years the review has made a name for itself. Even More significantly bar and Hershel Shanks have made biblical archaeology a More familiar subject in the United states.

From my Smith a 50-year-old father of five and a pastor for 26 years was born in Montreal and has trav Elled to Many parts of Canada. Before minister ing in Vancouver s Shaughnessy Heights United Church he was in Toronto at Eglinton United and Richmond Hill.

But i have a role in the Church Over the next two years. 1 know i appear very confident and have All kinds of brass but i d really rather be alone by As Moderator his role is that of a spokesman or representative but unlike the Pope in the roman Catholic Church he not have the Power to enact religious Laws. His main functions Are to pre Side Over meetings and attend ceremonial fun Lions. He is concerned about the Impact his new responsibilities will have on the his family. His wife Margaret Ellen Maguire is a special Edu cation teacher. Sometimes the Dis Tances Between us Are greater than at other times but generally we re moving in the same he said. Those who know Smith say he brings some unique strengths to the Job. He s a Good adminis Trator and not afraid to Delegate responsibility. His ability to care for others is deep and unfailing. A weakness lies in the fact he will have difficulty appealing to the More conservative elements within his Church. For example he agrees with the suggestion that he is a Christian Femi nist and supports full human rights for homosexuals saying they Are clearly within the ambit of the redeeming love of his detractors say he is part of the United Church s new Liberal left leaning establishment which dominates the Church and seems deter mined to move it into the political Arena.

Citizenship and deported by Washington for War crimes has denied Ever being a nazi. Portuguese authorities Are investigating the Politi Cal past of Trifa former head of the romanian Ameri can orthodox Church who arrived in Lisbon on tues Day and sought permission thursday to Settle in Portugal. Trifa told the newspaper Diario de Noticia that he had never been a nazi or committed any of the crimes he was accused of and that he had been a prisoner in Dachau concentration Camp from 1941-1945. The 70-year-old archbishop was deported for activities with the Iron guard a fascist group responsible Lor the massacre of jews in Romania during the Sec Ond world War. Portuguese authorities said they knew nothing of his nazi past when he was granted a three month entry visa and they would be contacting their ., Roma Nian and West German counterparts to try to find out the details. Trifa s deportation was held up for several years because no country wanted him except Romania and Israel where he would face prosecution As a War Crim Inal. He applied for a residence permit thursday at the portuguese Interior ministry. A . Justice department official in Washington said Trifa s lawyers told us Portugal knew who he will god give up on us dear or. Graham i heard you say something on one of your television programs to the effect that the time could come when god would just give up on us if we neglect him. That has me worried because i admit i have turned my Back on god. How can i Tell if it is too late . Dear . Yes the Bible does teach that it is pos sible for us to turn our backs on god for so Long that we Are no longer Able to hear his word and respond to his Call. The Bible says a Man who remains stiff necked after Many rebukes will suddenly be destroyed with out remedy proverbs this is a solemn warn ing to us. I have met people who said that they did not want to turn to Christ right now but someday they would turn to him before they died. Tragically this almost never happens because the More we live in sin the less we Are Likely to listen to god s voice. But you have not arrived at that Point of no one of the signs of a person who has grown hard and calloused toward god is that he has no concern about his spiritual state. The fact that you Are worried about your relationship with god is encouraging and says there is Hope for you. Turn to Christ and ask him to come into your heart by Faith right now. God loves you. In spite of the fact you have lived apart from him All these years. Religion not for weak dear or. Graham i never thought i would be writing you. Because i have always thought religion was for weak people and 1 have prided myself on being Able to scheme my Way out of any situation. But now i am overwhelmed with problems that i can t handle. What Are your ideas about ways i can get help hear . Look closely at this Promise of the Bible god is our Refuge and strength an Ever pres ent help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear psalm this tells you something very important for you to understand god is both willing and Able to help you if you will turn to him. Why is that True because god loves you. All your life you have trusted in yourself and left god out of your life. But in spite of that god cares for you and More than anything else he wants you to discover the Joy and strength that comes from knowing Christ As your personal Savior. How does god help us when we face problems for one thing. He gives us a new perspective on them. When we see our problems from his Point of View they often begin to seem less overwhelming. In addition he gives us new strength and courage to meet the prob lems we face. We know we Are not alone when Christ is with us. He also is Able to help us see new ways of dealing in practical terms with our problems and he is Able to change our circumstances also when it is for our Good. Right now Jesus Christ wants to come into your life. Will you receive him and Trust him by Faith then bring your burdens whatever they Are to Christ. I Don t understand dear or. Graham my sister has made life mis Erable for the rest of our family and yet she seems to be the most successful and happiest member of the family. I can t understand this. Do you think god punishes people who Are mean to other people airs. . Dear mrs. . You Don t say exactly what your sister has done to make life miserable for the rest of your family but it is certainly wrong in god s eyes to treat other people in this Way. The Bible says get rid of. Brawling and slander along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another forgiving each other just As in Christ god forgave you live a life of love ephesians and yes the Bible furthermore says we Are accountable to god for such actions and no sin goes god cannot be unpunished. Do not be deceived mocked. A Man reaps what he sows.
