March 5 - lt: Charles Town High's 1 Library Needs Funds To Buy More Books The Charles Town High School Library is in serious trouble. There are not enough books to meet state requirements and there is not enough money to buy more. The library receives about $270 per year and as about $145 of it is spent for magazines and library supplies there is only $125 to be spent for new books. The average cost for these books is $2.25 each, thus only about 55 can be bought each year. The num'ber of 'books needed at present is 671. The Studnt Council has ,been trying to arouse interest among the students so that they might help with this pressing problem. They would like /~o extend an invita, tion to you, the parents and citizens of this community to help reach .their goal. If you are in- terested, please contact the Stu- dent Council of Charles Town High School for {urther informat- ion. "Talking With God" To Be Sermon Sunday At Lutheran Church The Rev. Richard E.

Devotional Reading: Hebrews 4:14 through 5:9. Thy Will Be Done Lesson for March 8, 1959 ASTRANGER to the Christian religion would bo struck by two things. One is, that the church cherishes much that she does not understand; and the other is that the church loves to remember what the stranger would think we should wish to forget. The story of Gethsemane is one that every Christian knows. The first three gospels all tell it in some detail. Every c~mmun- ion service be- gins with the words, "The Lord Jesus, the same Dr. Foreman night in which he was betrayed..." The Gethsemane story is one of anguish of mind and soul, a story of Jesus offering an unanswered prayer--"let this cup pass." There is no doubt about Jesus' distress in Gethsemane. Matthew, Mark and Luke all testify to it. Mark says that Jesus "began to be greatly distressed and troubled." The word Mark uses which is translated "greatly distressed" in Mark 14:33 is the same word he usss in 9:15 to describe the crowd's astonishment when they saw him after the Transfiguration. It is the same word also in 16:5 and 8, speaking of the:amazement of the women at the tomb when they saw the white-robed angel. It is the em- phatic form of a word used in Acts 9:6 (King James version) to de- scribe Saurs emotions when stricken to the ground on the Da- mascus Road. It is a word mean- ing more than surprise; it is shock. The whole story of Gethsemane holds right up to this word that begins it. Jesus prays in such in- tensity that sweat poured from his forehead like so much blood. He describes his own feelings as "very sorrowful, even to death." The church does not remember Jesus as a man always serene. One of the early Christian writers sneaks of Christ as offering up "prayers. and supplications with loud cries and tears." (Heb. 5:7.) "llot What I Will--" -' There is a darker shadow than this. You would think, if you were a stranger to the Christian faith, that if ever there had been a time when Jesus felt his own will and his Father's will were not the same, the church would prefer to forget that fact. Would it not be better, more edifying, more com- forting-would it not make Christ a nobler figure, if we could think of him as at every point and in every moment desiring only what his heavenly Father desired, never anything different ? No--if the church had been in- venting the story, they would prob- ably have invented it just that way. But the church was dealing with facts, not fancies. And in this story of Gethsemane we are fur- ther mystified by hearing Jesus say, "Not what I will, but what Thou wilt." Any one who thinks he knows exactly what Jesus meant by that, is guessing. What is plain, if we honestly and humbly listen,, is that there was enough difference between what Jesus de- sired, or would prefer, and what his Father in heaven preferred, so that he could say, Not this--but that ! Our Lord and Ourselves Yet immediately, in the same breath, Jesus cries out "what thou wiRN Jesus was not at that mo- ment giving a lesson in prayer. Nevertheless that is the most pro- found lesson in prayer which we can learn. We all know by heart the prayer which Jesus taught us, and we rattle it off easily enough. But every phase of it is hard to say honestly, and none. harder than this: "Thy will be done." That is Just fine when we think God wants what we want, and is sitting up there in the sky like a heavenly Fixer, arranging for all our sweet dreams to come true. That is fine too even when we can see God is not going to let our dreams come true, provided we can see that God has a better plan and we know what the plan is. But what about it, if we become sure that God is against our own plans, that God is not "fixing things" for us, and yet we cannot see why? What about it if our knowing what God's will is, brings us also to cries and tears, to amazement and distress ? Well . . then we can find light in dark Getlu~emane, (Baaed on outlines copyrighted by the Division of Christian Education, National Coemeil of the Churehea of C~hytst in the U. S. A.

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, neither democracy norclvilization 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 children's sake. 1'3) For the sake of his community and nation. (4) For the sake of the Church itself,, which needs his moral and material ~upport.
