Light of the World LeMon for Febrtmry 12, 1961 TIMID Christians, especially nowadays, sometimes wonder if we haven't set our sights too high. Missionaries have had to leave China and parts of Africa; they have had a hard time in sections of India, and elsewt~ere. Are we med- dling where we ought not to be ? InteUigent J a p- arose C~nristians will tell you frankly why it is that Christianity has grown so slowly in Japan: it is because it is regarded as a western religion, an importation, and to be a Chris- Dr. Foreman ttan is (in the eyes of millions of Japanese) to be unpatriotic. Wouldn't it be better, some Amer- Ican church members say, if we just recognized that the Japanese are right, Christianity is a western religion, it suits America and may- be Europe, so let's cultivate it here and leave Asia to the Asiatic~ Y Bold From Birth The cure for such timid Chris- tians ts a good look at the New Testament, and at history. Take the history first. The Christian re- ligion did not start as a western religion; it began in Asia. It had its roots in the Jewish religion, and that also was a religion of Asia. One of the big questions that stirred the early church was: Can the Christian religion take in non- Jews? In other words, can the Christian religion be acceptable in Rome, Spain, Germany, Britian? Nobody thought about Britian at first, to be sure; and when Chris- tian missionaries first went there it was dangerous in the extreme. But they went. There were timid Christians then as now, satisfied with Christianity as a home-town religion. But there were also bold Christians, far-sighted Christians. and with or without the backing of the whole church they went, in t, time, over the wide world. Chris- tlanlty today is the one world-wide religion. Our nearest rival has less tha~ half the number of adherents that Christianity has. Light of the World All this was not an accident, not a~ after-thought. Jesus himself though a loyal Jew had a world- vision. He called himself the Light of the World. This was a kind of divine audacity. It didn't look like it in his lifetime. There he was, off in a very obscure corner of the world, without one single follower who could have been called "dis- tinguished." The intellectual and economic and political centers of the world were elsewhere. There was no religious vacuum for a new religion to fill. There was no wel- come-mat at the world's front door when Christianity began to knock. But Jesus called himself, all the same, the Light of the World. Jesus could rightly say this. The light he came to bring, the light he personally was, is different from all other lights. It is a light from God and also a light on God. Jesus is God - making - himself- known. A well-known atheist said he would believe in God on one con- dttion: 'Fret him out and let me see him do something." Well, a "god" who could be trotted out would not be God at all; but as for doing something, Christ is what God has done, he is what God has ~d. How He Shines Jesus said, also, to his friends and followers: You are the light of the world. This is no contradiction. He shines through those who share his spirit and his service. Through the gradual Christianizing of soci- ety, through the freedom and dig- nity that has come to those who have entered the Christtafi way; through every school and church and hospital and orphanage that works in his name and service: through the preaching of the Word in the languages of the world; through the day-by-day living of genuine Christians, the light of Christ shines every day around the world. "Christianity is possible only in a nation of Christs," said a famous non-Christian, G..B. Shaw. He was more right than he knew; it is precisely the '"nation of ChHsts" that is our aim every- where. Lights in small corners are good so far as they go; but Christ sets out to be the Light of the World. (]Based on outlines copyrighted by the Division of Christian Education.

THE WEATHER CALENDAR AND OTHER -- F O R -- N Charles Town- R son By Mrs. Georgia Pearl CHURCHES Blizzard Weather Well here it is and in the past week a blizzard and zero weather One week ago this past Monday cold zero clouded skies another co|d night. Tuesday morning zero clouded skies some snow flurries very piercing air and another very cold night. On Wednesday morning 2 degrees above zero, some little sun shine not enough to move the evening skies very cloudy and appearance of more snow and we may get it. Thurs- day another zero morning, some snow flurries becoming more like a light sleet, no sunshine and in late evening the sleet turning to a very light snow and on Friday morning here came the blizzard. And just about the worst one of all yet. The snow was mixed with sleet and. a heavy crust very heavy to shovel and that is one titne the men folks found plenty ot work with us. We had fifteen inches of snow piled up on about six inches of the snow just a week before. A high strong wind followed the blizzard which would soon fill the paths and driveways. Different ones would ask what about such a winter. Well this is the first real ole time winter Mr. Pdarl and myself have experienced since 1919 when we were living on the farm near Richmond, Indiana. The drifts were twelve and fifteen feet high aid on level fifteen to eighteen inches deep with 35 degrees be- low zero for four weeks. That was real ole time winter. Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Wilt and daughter Cindy Lou of Murrell Hill were visitors Saturday night with the formers parents Mr. and Mrs. Humphrey Wilt and daugh- ters Antionnette and Arbutus. Mr. Charles Pearl who is a med ical patient in Charles Town Gen- eral Hospital shows very little im- provement. Mr. C. N. Hawk who has been visiting his son and family Mr. and Mrs. Carl Hawk of near BaltL more had made plans to return home. So due to this blizzard he has made the right choice he has decided to stay a while longer.

Without a strong Church. neither democracy norcivillzation can survive. There are four sound reasons why every person should ~ttend services regularly and support the Church. They are: fl) For his own sake. (2) For his childien's sake. f3) Fo~ the sake of his community and nation. (4) For the sake of the Church itself, which needs his moral 'and material support.
