It's easy to jump. Just leave the solid trail behind you and soar into space. But before you jump--learn how to land! One man can alight gracefully and continue his course. Another will wrap his skis around his head and end up in the hospital. There are important life-decisions we often describe as "taking the leap." Going to college, choosing a career, getting married-- these are just a few. And these "leaps" lead to happiness for some ---and tragedy for others. The Church with its program of worship and religious education makes essential contributions to our life. For what happens after our major "leaps" depends on the character which has been instilled in us, arid oh the principles by which we live. The Church prepares us for the leapswe are going to take by teaching us how to land happily, and to--continue-a right course throughout life, Copyr]gl~t 196I, gd~tcr Adv. Strt4ce. $tra*~urg, V¢.

It is a storehouse of ~iplritual values, Without a strong Chu:ch, neither democracy nor civilization can survive. There are four sound reasons why every person should attend services regularly and support the Church, They are: (I) For his own sake. (2)" For his da~ldren's sake. (~) For the sake of h~s community ,and nation. (4) For the sake of tlre Church itself, which needs his moral and material support. Plan to go to church regularly and read your Bible daily.
