New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - December 27, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas 6 □ Herald-Zeitung □ Friday, December 27. 1996 Hera Z e i t u n g Church Life ■ To talk with Managing Editor Micah Boyd about Church Life, call 625-9144, ext. 220Church LifeBread of LifeHope the key to New Year’s resolutions My favorite Christmas movie stars Bing Crosby, Danny Kay and Rosemary Clooney in the classic “White Christmas." I love the last scene where the barn doors are thrown open to show the beautiful snow falling on the landscape as Bing and cast croon “I’m dreaming of a white Christmas!” The movie hit the big screen in 1954 and changed forever the way we “should” have Christmas. Christmas should be complete with snow, said Bing. And if he said it, I believe it. I don’t suppose it is any shock that it didn’t happen again this year ... snow, that is on Christmas. But without fail, even in the most cynical heart, there is that thread of hope that this will be the year. By now, all the packages are thrown out (along with the “lost part” to someone’s treasure), and life has returned to the holding pattern of the season. Dreams are being turned away from Christmas and toward the new year. Maybe next year it will snow. So what do your dreams consist of? What hopes and dreams do you have for 1997? Hopes and dreams are very Dennis Gallaher different from the classic New Year’s Resolutions. Resolutions are the gut-up and get-on-with-it promises that regularly crash and bum by February. The word means to set a course of action and walk in it. Something that is easy to promise and hard to do. Hopes, though, are not as much thinking as feeling. Hope is an emotion and often times out of our control to really bring about. Hope is not only in something but also in someone. Someone who is greater than I to perform the impossible. Someone who can take hopes and dreams and translate them into flesh and blood. That is why I have learned to place my New Year’s hopes in the hand of One much greater than I. The Jewish people have a saying. It is this: O Israel, hope in the Lord; For with the Lord there is loving kindness And with him is abundant redemption. The New Testament writer put the same thought another way. Hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us. Hopes and dreams are the seeds of reality. When they are sown in the garden of the Master, He takes great time and care to sec that they produce a good harvest. Pruning will come. Life sapping weeds will be pulled. But in the end will be a harvest of peace and righteous living.

There’s a song in this preacher’s heart By ANNIE SHOOMAN Associated Press Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) — Every time he brought home a Grammy, it was another award for the Lord. But he was not winning any souls. Andrae Crouch turned to preaching because it was time. But still today, when he’s in the pulpit, his feet tap and his body sways to the music. As pastor of Christ Memorial Church of God in Christ, the eighttime Grammy winner is one year into a family tradition started by his late father and brother. “Although I’ve written a thousand songs about him, I feel like I have met God in a way that I’ve never known him before,” he said. “God gave me excellence in music. My cars became skilled from what I heard. Now I can pass on what I’ve heard to my congregation.” His Pentecostal church in Pacoima, a northwest suburb that is predominantly Hispanic, is a spiritual oasis from crime and gangs. Crouch wants Hispanics to become a part of the mostly black congregation. “Black, Hispanic, white, Asian, it doesn’t matter,” he said. “All that matters is that they must care about Jesus Christ.” Crouch’s father, Bishop Benjamin J. Crouch, founded the church in 1951. He died of cancer in 1993. “We lost a lot of the older people when my father left here,” Crouch said. “They were expecting mc to be him and I’m not.” Crouch’s brother, Pastor Benjamin Crouch Jr., took over, but died only four months later, also of cancer. For Crouch, the transition from gospel singing to gospel preaching was not an easy one, but he says he just does what conies naturally. "People never know what to expect in my music,” he said. "People don’t know what to expect in my church. They just know it will be real. We’re carrying on the standard of living for God.” Crouch, who has been winning Grammy awards since 1974, has toured 58 countries. His music has been translated into 21 languages.

At the beginning of this month, I spent a day alone in the Hill Country. Early in the crisp air of the morning, I set out to climb a steep hill to a mesa that I have gone to often over the years. All the way I poured out my heart to the Lord. For several hours I gave my dreams and hopes to Him. For sure I thought, I had overdone it. The thought struck me that I couldn’t even remember some of the prayers I had prayed! I couldn’t recall all that I had dumped from my heart in the lap of my Father. That is often the case, isn’t it? There are so many needs that we can’t even remember them all. But God does. The sense that God remembered all my cares struck me. As I had given all my dreams to Him, He had given all His peace to me. He does not forget the prayers of His children. So start out this year short on resolutions and long on hopes and dreams. Your Father is full of loving kindness and will treat them with great care. Place your hope in Him and you will not be disappointed. After all, there is not a single care ... or a dream or a prayer ... that He forgets. No, not one. Not even one. (Dennis Gallaher is pastor of the Freedom Fellowship Church in New Braunfels.) Judge approves Clergy in Schools program BEAUMONT (AP) — A federal judge ruled recently that a program bringing volunteer clergy members into public school classrooms is constitutional. U.S. District Judge Joe Fisher denied a request filed by an attorney for three anonymous Beaumont Independent School District parents who sought a restraining order to stop the Clergy in Schools program. “The court feels clergymen may volunteer and serve a very worthy purpose, and have,” Fisher said at the end of a hearing. “The court does not find that there’s any violation of Constitutional rights.” Volunteer clergy members have visited Beaumont schools since September to meet with groups of students selected to represent a crosssection of the student body. Students may choose not to attend the meetings, but parents are not asked for permission, according to testimony. The students whose parents filed the lawsuit include four girls from three different families. None of the children have attended the voluntary program. Scott Newar, who filed the lawsuit Nov. 18, has said the plaintiffs are religious but believe the program interferes with their right to choose how religion will be presented to their children. Newar argued Monday that the program is unconstitutional because it entangles government and religion. The school district, Newar said, is trying to get religion in through the back door.” Newar said his clients aren’t opposed to having clergy volunteer in schools but wanted other professionals included as well.
