THIS SERIES OF MESSAGES IS MADE POSSIBLE BY THE FOLLOWING CHARLES TOWN AND JEFFERSON COUNTY FIRMS WHO RECOGNIZE THE VALUE OF THE CHURCHES OF OUR COMMUNITY. ( / TILe Ghcnt00stru 00t*r*eter There ,s no precise formula. But there are certain elements usually found in significant measure in persons of character. One is belief. And not just belief in one's self. The men and women we most admire generally have strong convictions which influence their daily lives. Another is commitment. Far beyond mere involvement. Those vho stir our admiration devote their time and talents unself- ishly to worthwhile causes. And there's usually a third element; but it's never boasted of or paraded about. That's sacrifice. People of character are always willing to deny themselves something to achieve something greater. Nearby are plenty of "laboratories" where belief, commit- ment and sacrifice combine to produce Christian character. They're called CHURCHES.
