So they asked him one day a ques- tion they could not have dared to answer them- selves. Since Pal- estine was an occupied country at the time, it was a very hot question indeed: Is' it right to pay taxes to Rome? "Yes" would mean the man who answered Dr. Foreman sonage at ~8:00 p. m.

Mary Lee Lemen, Ben- would get a man into JaiL nie Butler, Cora Lou Fraley and Darlene Lemen gave demonstrat- ions. The hoe on the Money ! Committee meetings were held Jesus' answer was not all Yes following the meeting, nor all No. As he had done before, Refreshments were served by he put the question right back to ~be host. the questioners. First he asked to see a denarius. The very name of the coin was Roman; it would be about what a workman in those days would make in a day. Of course the only money the Romans would accept for taxe~ would be Roman money. Like all hard money, this piece had a picture on it, and some words in Latin around the edge of it. JESUS forced the priests' spies to admit that the pic- ture was of His Majesty the Em- peror, then Tiberius Caesar; and the Latin word~ also referred to him. In short, the whole thing was Roman. They would be reminded that the Romans came to Palestine in the first place by the Jews' re- quest; that they had brought peace to the torn land; that the roads and public safety were maintained by the Romans... all with tax money. Some of the tax denarius would stay right in the province. The face on the money spoke for itself. The Imperial Government had a right to lay a tax. "Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar," Jesus said; but added in the same breath---"and to God what belongs to God." Two Wodda Ever since that moment, both followers a~nd critics of Je~tm have had trouble figuring out precisely what Jesus meant. One ~g does en~s Mr .and *Mrs. Humphrey Wilt seem clear enough. For the me- and Miss Antionnette ~nd Arbutus merit, he was shutting the mouths Wilt. Mr. an~l Mrs. William D~nges and family motored ,to Pron,t Roy- al, Va.

I RUMMAGE SALE, JAN. 30 The Senior Parent Booster Club is sponsoring a Rummage Sale, January 30 and 31st in the room on corner of George and Wash- ington S~s..formerly occupied bY Miller's Meat Market from 10 a. m. to 9 p. m. cach day, of those who tried I;o make him look silly. Without saying Yes or No to their tricky yet practical question, he called their attention to the fact that they owed Caesar something, and owed God some- thing; and perhaps hinted that they were behind with their installments on both accounts. However, look- ing beneath the surface of Jesus' brilliantly simple antareS, we can see a truth which is just as good for America d~s it is or was for a province of the Roman Empire cen- turies ago. Every man, whether he realizes it or not, is a citizen of two worlds. One is the human world around him, as in America here. All of us owe America a great deal. We can appreciate our country more ff we stop to think that more people would like to move here, than to any other country on the globe. Our country has a right to our loyal support. The other world is called the Kingdom or Realm of God. It is not visible always ("it cometh not with observation"), but it is far more important, and infinitely more en- during, than any human common- wealth. If we owe our country much, we owe the Kingdom of GOd yet more. Many Problems It is not easy to say, indeed im- possible, just where the kingdoms of this earth end and the Kingdom of Heaven begins. People speak of the two worlds as distinct; other people say they overlap. One thing is sure: if they overlap, they do so in u~ for we are citizens in both worlds. This raises many problems, especially where the two worlds overlap. Suppose the State says a thing is wrong which I knew as GOd ees it, is right ? Suppose the State Commands me to do something I am quite sure God forbids ? I know :~ ~houJd be a good citizen; but c~n I be a good citizen and go against my conscience ? One thing is sure. If I try to be a citizen of man's world only, I shall find myself sometimes fighting against God. But if I take mY citizenship in God's world only, I shall be indlf. ferent to my human brothers ~d sisters. Only by loving both God and man can I be a good ci~Szen of both world& (Based..on outltaes Copyrighted by the Divmton of Chria~iali ~eueation, brational ~eunll of the ChUrehe~ of Christ in the U. S.

ALL FOR THE CHURCH The Church is the greatest factor on earth for the building of character and good citizenship. It is a storehouse of spiritual values. Without a strong Church, neitfier democracy nor civilization can survive There are four sound reasons why every person should attend services regularly and support the Church They are: f I) 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. Plan to go to chinch regularly and read your Bible daily. Would you like to be a child forever? Would you like to go each time it snowed without a thought of shoveling the front checking the firewood supply? If at first you say yes, think again. Childhood is wonderful, there are few of us who would want to be confined to it forever. Day Book Chapter Verses natural urge toward growth is a strong one.
