Charles Washington Theatre Clarence The Cross-Eyed Lion Showing FrL - Sat. Jan. 21-22 Marshall Thompson and his motherless teenage daughter live deep in the African jungle, oper- ating a Study Center of Animal Behaviour. A cross-eyed lion, un- abl~ when hunting to focus on his prey, is brought to the Center, where he soon becomes a house hold pet, hobnobbing freely with both family and guests. Amoung the latter is Betsy Drake, engag- ed in studying gorillas, and the efforts of two poachers to steal some of her apes furnishes the plot line. Richard Haydn as the teenager's cowardly tutor, unusu ally good animal shots, the antics of a pet chimpanzee, and of cou. rse, the delightful Clarence, make an enjoyable, thoroughly non- thought-provoking film.

Devotional Reading: Ephesians 3:14-19. MUCH BETTER than reading this column ab'out the Bible is reading the Bible itself. So it will do the reader good to take a Bible and a red pencil and every day this week read one of the six Bible passages, mark it in his Bible and then take time to sit still and think about the mean- ing .of what he has just read. (If this means read- ing the passage several times and not only once, so much the better!) Out of many lines of thought the three following may be selected as showing what a wealth and variety of meaning friends of Christ have found in the "simple" statement: God is Father. No grandfather First it may be necessary to clear from our minds the foggy notion that God is a sort of grand- father. Not all grandparents are like their "stereotype," the popu- lar picture made of them, any more than mothers-in-law are like the creatures met with in comic strips under that title. The ster- eotype of a grandfather is an old man with a beard, probably re- tired, with nothing to do but pur- sue his hobbies. Grandpa is sup- posed to take his grandchildren as a sort of a hobby. They amuse him and he likes to play with them. He lets them do what they please, indeed he feels free to encourage them to dodge their parents' discipline and disobey their rules. In short, a grand- father is interested only in giv- ing his grandchildren a good time. God is definRely not such a grand. parent at all -- a doddering old deity who lets us do as we please and doesn't really care. God is Father, not Grandfather. Father by choice Many truths are bound up in the basic truth that God is Father. For one. thing, he is Father by choice, not by accident or neces- sity. Down south there is a city where a survey was made of the homes around one of the inner- city churches there. It was dis- covered that 40% of the "homes" in the" area have no adult male in them. You can see what that means in crime and lawbreaking and all the evils that result from fatherlessness in a grim environ- ment. Now all those young "de- linquents" had fathers, otherwise they would not exist, but fathers only in a biological sense. More than half the natural .fathers in that area didn't want to be fathers. It was too much trouble, so they skipped out as soon as they could. (incidentally it does no good to tell those deadend boys that God is Father. Can you wonder?) God is not a run- away father. He does not have fatherhood pushed on him. He is father in two ways: by crea- tion and by grace. We are all his children by creation, and if any -- or most -- of us are runaway children, that is our fault, not his. We run away from him, never he from us. He wills, he chooses, to be what he is; father of each of us whether we ac- knowledge him or not.. If we live tile life of orphans, we need not think God is to bIame. The high God That God is Father means not only that he is the Source of our being, the One to whom we look for guidance, command and con- trol above all others. It means that God is our Father. That is, God does not lay aside his Deity, he does not cease to be the Mighty and Mysterious, the All Powerful, when he is Father. It is not a choice between the in. timate Father-God and the In. finite and awe-inspiring High God of the Universe. It is precisely the High God, the Ruler and Creator of all that is, who is our Father. The same God to whom Jesus prayed, the same God of whom our Lord Jesus always spoke with such reverence, it is He and no other and no least Who is the Father of us all.

WASHINGTON STREET TO I PHONE 725-7313 Sept. 16-tf- What has happened to this marvebus world of ours in this twentieth cen- tury of God's grace? Mankind seems to be passing through a sea of troubles which has no counterpart in human history. There are wars and rumors of wars among the nations, and many of the nations themselves are split into warring factions, each faction striving for supremacy, and each intolerant of the views, hopes, and rights of others. The great trouble with the world is that men have forgotten God. They no longer seek spiritual guidance, but follow the vain ways of the modern world. We have become a cynical, materialistic generation. If this drift toward world tragedy and chaos is ever stopped, the churches of the world must do it. The world's hope--our hope--is in God and His Church. He alone can save mankind from a sorrowful fate. The Church seeks to furn the hearts of men from the ways of war and fear and hate to the ways of peace and love. THE CHURCH FOR ALL ALL FOR THE CHURCH The Church is the greatest factor on earth for the building of charac- ter and good citizenship, It is a store- house of spiritual values. Without a strong Church, neither democracy nor civilization can survive. There are four sound reasons why every per.on should attend services regu- larly and support the Church. They are: (1) For his own sake. (2) For his children's sake. (3) For the sake of his community and nation. (4) For the sake of the Church itself, which needs his moral and material support.
