CHEESE jar Nabisco Premium CRACKERS Ib pkg 19c Christ was cited by the pastor as an almost literal fulfillment of a prophecy made by Micah some five to eight centuries before the advent of the Holy Birth in Bethle hem There is in Christianity Mr Wil Hams observed a joining of meek ness and of strength and great ness A too common error he add ed is to interpret meekness self effacement as woaknessi A central tenet of Christianity brought into focus at Christmas is its accent on peace and good will This he insisted has taken on a new meaning since the Abombs were dropped on Japan in 1945 Ever since that time he as serted the world has suffered the worst case of jitters ever known The men who perfected the bomb almost immediately cried out that this is not the way to peace it will lead but to universal destruction And events are leading in the di rection of their forebodings A new Pandoras box has ap peared in our midst and the lid has been lifted in the name of nuclear fission A fresh brood of fiends has been let loose upon the world Cynics Deride Cynics may deride if they wish the Angels message of Peace and Good Will and pass it off as pure poppycock But sooner than we may expect the cataclysm will come unless we heed the divine offer Christmas Mr Williams con cluded has become almost a leg end and its underlying message is lookedupon as irrelevant to the desperate human situation and need We must rescue Christmas from the legendry and makebe lieve It must become a and it can be when Christ the Sav ior is born in us Noon headlines from KGLO were read by Past
