Many families were running very low on fuel, food or water supplies, but fortu- nately few actual emergencies were reported. Two emergencies were averted, however, by the as- sistanee of helicopters, one from the Army base at Ft. Belvoir which brought a supply of insulin to the J. Edward Magaha farm and one from the Air National Guard at Martinsburg which dropped badly needed diabetic food at the James H. Snyder farm. Mr. Francis Hinton, whose car stalled in the snow Saturday night, was able to make his way on foot to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Robert McCormick where he was forced to remain for several days suffering from acute frost- bite. On the whole, however, the community emerged from the blizzard and its aftermath in very good condition, and is gradually returning to normal everyday living.

Image of God Lesson for February 13, 1966 Background Scripture: Genesis 1:26-31; Psatrn 8; Matthew 12:1-14; 18:1-14; Acts 10:34-35; Hebrews 2:5-9. Devotional Reading: Psalm 8. A BEDSPRING, a hard-boiled egg and an acre of sunshine are wonderful things in their way, but you could not possibly ex- plain this subject (The "Image of God") to them no matter how hard you tried. This may sound like nonsense, but it is not. The bed- spring is wonder- ful because it was a thought in someone's mind before it was a real spring. The whole idea of a spring --- watch Dr. Foreman spring or spring- board at the pool, or bedspring in a mattress -- is a remarkable thing indeed. The egg is still more remarkable, for no human being can create one. The acre of sunshine has enormous power and unmatched beauty; but it is not living -- a source of life yet not a living thing itself. What ls most like God? It would be wrong, ridiculous and perhaps blasphemous, to take any one of these three and say "God is like that." God is won- derful and most things in his world are wonderful, when you stop to think about it. But there is one object in the universe and only one of which the Bible says it is Hke God or can be like God. That is man himself. By creation, that is to say by the original in- tention of God, man and only man was "made in the image and likeness of God." And yet this raises serious puzzles. Do you know any man or any race or sort of men, religious or not, whom you would be willing to accept as your God? No, if you know what you are doing. When Chris- taifis say we are made in God's image they mean that hy God's will and purpose we are like him just by being human. Yet it is plain that (as a Texas theologian once put it) we are in God's image, but not his "spittin' im- age". This "Image of God" has been defined in various ways. One of the best perhaps is that the expression refers to all the qual- ities of man which he does not share with any of the rest of the things (living or not) that make up the vast universe. What man is Godlike? The reader may be left to think about this. Or he can read any of the countless books that have been written on the subject. Or he can finish this column and get started perhaps on a long line of thoughts and problems. What is there in man which is or can become most like God? His mind and powers of controlling the universe? His ability to send out a Mariner to distant planets? His ability to make choices? His capacity for joy and grief? His ability to love and be loved? His sense of the beautiful? His con- science, his capacity of distin. guishing choices as between right and wrong, and not only between pleasant and unpleasant? His memory, his hope, and the way he can blend these together?. Something can be said for all of these, but the one we can best understand, perhaps, is man as a person. Pers6nal God, personal man It is because we can and must deal with God on a personal level that man has a dignity and a value unique in the universe. That man can explore space is astonishing, even awe-$nspiring. But not so wonderful as that he can pray. Next time you are in a bank, or a museum, or a mag- nificent church or public building, look around you. What is the most valuable thing there? The answer is, Persons. Look out at the stars some bright night. What is the most astonishing thing out there? Persons, A person THE Person, God. You do not need a space ship to find him; he is as near as your next prayer. Man with u God he can only talk about, not talk to or with, is %olitary, poor, nasty, and brut- ~h." Man with a God who is kin to him, man who is a person made after the pattern of God, is the most valuable object hi all crea. tion.

CORRECTION In the Feb. 3, issue of the Spirit of Jefferson-Advocate a picture was used of two boys now serving in Viet Nam. It was inadv ertenly and incorrectly stated that the two boys shown in the picture are relatives. They are not relatives, but instead just friends. One of the boys shown in the picture was Mike Canan and not Corporal Lowell F. Eusey, a son-in-law of Mr. and Mrs. Tony Ceravalo, of Route 2, Charles Town as stated. Corporal Eusey and Donald L. Ceravalo are relatives, and both are now serving in Vigt Nam.

ALL FOR THE CHURCH The Church is the greatest factor on earth for the building of charac- ter and good citiT~enship. 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 person should attend services regu- larly and suplmrt the Church. They are: (l) For his own sake. (2~ For his children's sake. (3) For the sake of his comnmnity and nation. (4) For the sake of the Church itself, wi~ich needs his moral and material support. Plan to go to church regu- larly and read your Bible daily.
