Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta S THE IFTHBRIDGE HERALD Friduy, December 14, 1971 the Baptist prophet John the Unplist must have been a very tine tu sec oven in the land of Judab at the time of ChrLsl. And yet. he was most wel- come to those people for no prophet had been heard fur many centuries. His strange clothing and huaare living ha- bits cjiliixi to the miiuls of the Jews an collier prophet who was lo return Elijah. The idea of a prophet once more exciting; however, it was nothing compared to the idea that he might he Elijah since Elijah would herald the com- ing of the Messiah, the saviour. Jenisalem did not escape this growing excitement and ten- sion. And so we see the priests PL'ZZLE-l'PS An enlarged rerslon of shows how this educational toy chal- lenges and rewards children by testing their learning ability. Since all pieces in each puzzle in the set are inserted at different heights, and since all pieces can be moved, eyes rotate, wheels re. rolve, clork fares change. Chil- dren combine enjoyment practice in manual dexterity. and lomplo assistants question- ing John just who are you? Are you a prophet? Arc you Elijah? Are you the Messiah One by one John rejects the j rule offered Mm. Almost in ut- j icr frustration, they continue I their probe into his identity. 1 Then, just who are you? He answers their question finally J by a quotation from Isaiah. As Is.'iiiih had been sent by God to comfort his people and give them hope in a time of great suffering and loss, John sees j that he, too, had been called to announce a time of favour and I grace and John saw that he was one crying in the wilderness: the Lord is coming; Tie is near if only you will prepare. But John does not stop there. The Lord is-in your midst and you do not even know it. You haven't even recognized him. Unless you prepare you will not find him. John's message rings loud and el ear even lo this day. Like the priests and temple assis- tants, we could ask John what his role truly is. Show me this Christ! Certainly He was bom some years ago but I don't see him today; certainlv Christmas is coming with all its festivities and celebrations. To us, John would hardly change his answer. There must be preparation. Only if we seek to understand, to appre- ciate, to help one another, will we find him in our midst. Denis MacDonald Jim Hagel.

GIFT WAS PROMISED Therefore the Lord Himself mil give you a sign: behold virgin will conceive, and bear a son and she will call His name Immanucl. GIFT WAS MIRACULOUS Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city in Galilee, called Nazareth, to a virgin engaged to a man whose name was Jo- seph, of the descendants of Da- vid, and the virgin's name was Wary.

Ho who ceive in your womb, and bear a son, and you shall name Him Jesus." And Mary said, "Be- hold, the bondslave of the Lord; be it done to me according to your word." And the angel departed from her. GUT IS GIVEN Now it came about in those days that a decree went out from Ceasar Augustus, that a census should be taken while Quirinius was governor of Sy- ria. And all were proceeding to register for the census, every- one in his own town or city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of Naz- areth, to Judea, to tjie city of David, which is called Bethle- hem, because he was of the house and family of David; ui order to register, along with Mary, who was engaged to him, and was with child. And it came about that while they were there, the days were completed for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her first born son; and she wrapped Him in cloths, and laid Him in the manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. GIFT IS POWER And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on GIFT IS GREATEST He who comes from above is above all, he who is of the earth is from the earth and from heaven is above oil. GOD'S GIFT Although God's gift was the most expensive gift ever given, it is surprising but true, that some people still reject It even though it is free. What will you do with God's gift? Why not accept it today? Pastor Wobben and family wish you a blessed Christmas and a blessed new year. Through Christ Jesus our Lord.
