School protests for Jesus hall portrait BLOOMINGDALE, Mich. — Although a federal district judge has ruled that a local high school violates the U.S. Constitution by displaying a portrait of Jesus, the school is appealing the decision.

Methodists meet at ‘Global Gathering MINNEAPOLIS — Several thousand United Methodists were expected here March 25-28 for their "Global Gathering *93,” sponsored by denomination's global ministries board to examine means for alleviating suffering and working for peace, justice and community commitment in regions around the world.New calander denotes dates of bible events BEAUMONT — The first of January is New Year's Day. It also is the day the Earth dried after the flood during Noah’s time. Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ on Dec. 25, which also is the day Jerusalem fell into captivity as recorded in Jeremiah, Chapter 52. January 15 was the day the children of Israel departed from their 400 years of slavery in Egypt. You won’t find these dates on your average store calendar but on the 1993 First Edition Christian Calendar — A Christian Tribute, which a Beaumont minister created and copyrighted. The calendar is the handiwork of Mitchel Jones, 41. But Jones credits the Lord with the idea. "I set out to write a calendar for God because he told me to,” said Jones, a secu rity guard and an associate minister for the Holy Bible Faith Canter. Jones devised the calendar based on a page-by-page, line-by-line study of the Bible and the dates it holds. He also used Strong’s Exhaustive Concludence of the Bible to help him find the dates for the calendar. "No, it doesnt say something happened on Jan. 4 or May I, but it says it happened on the fourth dby of the first month or the first day of the fifth month, like that,” Jones explained. "I did this because it was Ute vision I got, and hopefully Christians will acknowledge and pay tribute to these things God has done. He didn’t put those dates in there for nothing.” Jones tells the story of how the calendar came to be on the inside of its cover. "It began at my mother’s house (in) the year 1977.1 was sitting at the dining room table all alone in the house. I opened my Bible to read the Old Testament I came across a date in which I immediately skipped over (during my study I usually overlooked the passages that included dates),” the story reads. make me a calendar.” Jones said the calendar is a new ministry for him. "Ibis is a testimony that God Hves, that he is raqLBome are going to believe and "I went directly to the story, when dvuM^some are not” he said.'*! have seen men ing my reading I was interrupted by a voice that asked me. Why did you do that?*" The voice asked again and again, and then Jones said the Spirit of God spoke to him: The world pays tribute to the days of presidents, its kings and queens and others, but my people pay no tribute to me. All of the men that have lived and died nor men to come cannot do the things that I have done,” the story continues. "For who without God can part the Red Sea or bring men back to lifo or give life or hold the universe in his hands. Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s, but unto God that which is God’s. I want you to that look like Paul Bunyon —big men — start crying when they read the story and see the calendar. Jones invested $12,000 in the 13-page venture, which is filled with framable dassie art prints of Biblical stories. Jones already is planning the 1994 edition in several versions, including a contemporary design and a youth version with comic book-style character illustrations. ••• The calendar is on sale in Christian bookstores in the Beaumont and Houston areas. The calendar if ordered by mail costs $6 plus $2 for shipping and handling. For more information, call 409-838-9590. Clinton receives mixed ratings from nation’s religious organization leaders Associated Press NEW YORK — Most of the country’s religious leaders have warmed to the Clinton presidency, applauding many of its initiatives, although sectors against abortion disagree with his policies. Also, the public affairs director of the chief organization of conservative evangelicals, the National Association of Evangelicals, said its member churches generally seemed behind Clinton’s economic program. The Rev. Robert P. Dugan of Washington added: “As to whether it’s going to work or not, cynics say we've heard all this talk before, but if he scales the wall of skepticism and gets it done, we pray he’ll succeed.” Among important Clinton goals that Dugan commended are more jobs, better health care, fair tax increases and reduced spending to cut the U.S. deficit. “It’s immoral to throw this humongous debt on the backs of our children and grandchildren,” he said. A delegation of Roman Catholic bishops, led by Archbishop William H. Keeler, president of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops, met with Clinton early this month, discussing their concerns, many of them shared by Clinton. Among their concurring positions, sketched by the bishops committee on domestic policy in February, were tax refilm to increase revenues, targeted spending cuts including reduced military spendinheaded by Auxiliary Bishop John H.

Certainly there is a long way to go in improving the world’s record on this issue. But the inroads the subject has already made into the political and diplomatic agenda give something to cheer about! This all-important issue, however, will not be wholly resolved when mankind’s rights to political and religious freedom have been won, as vital a goal as that is. There is a higher realm of rights that we need to stand for. We have divine rights, and we need to work diligently in prayer to assert those. Mary Baker Eddy, who discovered and founded Christian Science, puts it this way in her sermon The People’s Idea of God: “Mental Science alone grasps the standard of liberty, and batties for man's whole rights, divine as well as human.’’ Speaking of divine Soul, God, she goes on to point out: “Above the platform of human rights let us build another staging for diviner claims,—even the supremacy of Soul over sense, wherein man cooperates with and is made subject to his Maker.” Isn’t that wonderful? We have the right to freedom from the suffering of sickness, freedom from the tyranny of sin. We have the freedom to be Godlike! These aren’t rights that a human government can truly grant us or, really, deny us. The most benign government, providing the most generous material health-care system wouldn’t claim to be able to guarantee our health. The most autocratic government banning all moral misbehavior can’t touch the underlying problem of sin, namely the desire for self-indulgence. It takes divine Science, or God’s law, to deal adequately with sickness and sin. And divine Science does this by getting to the root of what it is that would deny us our God-given spiritual liberty and Soul-derived happiness. The Bible calls this the carnal mind, and it is what includes the thoughts of sickness and sin. This fettered human thinking needs to be challenged in order for us to find our legitimate, spiritual freedom. How is such thinking challenged? By looking to the Saviour, Christ Jesus, for an understanding of the true nature of the Godlike man that is our actual, spiritual identity. Jesus' expression of Christ—the understanding of man's true being as the reflection of God—stands forever as a testimony to our divine rights. The Bible, in Mark’s Gospel, tells about Jesus’ restoring the sight of blind Bartimaeus. In healing works such as this, Jesus literally proved man’s right to health instead of sickness, no matter how long an ailment has lasted. And Luke’s Gospel shows us how by bringing repentance to Zacchaeus, restoring him from corruption to honesty, Jesus showed man’s right to purity, no matter how commonly acceptable impurity appears to be. And finally, by his own resurrection, Jesus forever illustrated man’s right to eternal Life. Just as a Bill of Rights sets a national standard for freedoms, so the Master’s example is the spiritual standard against which human experience can be measured. In contrast to the political standard that nations must work to gain, however, the Christly standard is already the actual spiritual truth of man’s experience. It needs only to be prayerfully recognized and lived. Our right to be Godlike actually derives from the eternal truth that the only real man is entirely spiritual, created by God, as the Bible assures us. Standing for this spiritual right takes courage in the face of worldly thought to the contrary. But it is worth it. It brings inevitable, practical healing to us and to the world.
