The r~an with NEW ~DEAS FOR A NEW ERA IMble Muterlal:Job 1-2; 19:13-26; James 1:12-15. Devotions,/ ReAdins: I Peter 5:6-11. No insurance Lesson for April 16, 1961 , IF MORE questions are raised than are answered, in the Bible study for this week, that is be. cause for three weeks the center ~f attention is on the book of Job, part of the Bible's "Wisdom Liter- Iture." The book of Job itself raises a question . which it does not finally answer. The important thing this week is to get hold of the problem. Next week and the week after that we shall be con- cerned more With Dr. Foreman the answers. oh Is Every Man There is no need to inquire whether this book of Job refers to ;one historical individual named Iob, or whether this is a drama, a ~0ok of profound thought cast ln- ;o the form of a story. For Job ~ives on every street, your middle same is Job. Job is the man who ~as everything. He is the man that ~,mericans all want to be. He "has It made." He has a big family that :s a credit to him, he has wealth more than he needs. He has solved ~e problem of security. He does not need help from the govern. a~ent nor from any man. He is, ~,ou might say, insured against rouble. Wealthy, respected, suc- cessful--put Job into modern tai- ~r-made clothes, exchange his ;ent for a big house at a desirable add.ess, and he looks so much ~ike a 20th-century American of ~he "high salary bracket" kind, that a play can actually be written ~oday, with the scene laid in our :ime and nation, using the very ~lot of the book of Job, and that no son of Israel. Here is univer- sal man. His questions are all men's queslions, his problem is Of.It o%vn. When Life Crashes In The. reader of Job should not inch along a few verses at a time. Take your next day off and read the book straight through, or if you can't do that, then take at least a chapter at a time. The book is mostly a debate, but the debate begins with a story about another debate, one between God and Satan. God asks Satan if he has taken a good look at Job: there is a good man for you! Satan does not agree. Job is not good, he is only smart, Satan says. He is good because GOd has blessed him with success and happiness. Let God (as it were) stop Job's pay and he will see the last of Job. So God gives Satan leave to do his worst, only he must not touch Job himself. Then comes a smashing series of disasters. Job's wealth and his family are all swept away, and Job is left poor and lonely with only a bitter wife for companion. But Job does not turn away from God. The next time Satan comes to visit GOd, God asks him: Did you see my servant Job? He is better than you thought. You moved me against him, to destroy him without cause; but he still is a good man. Oh, Satan says, he still has his health. He can start life again. Let me drag him down in sickness and pain, and you will hear him curse you to your face. Then God, who believes in the man Job, gives Satan permission to wreck this man's body, and it is done. Now the problem is a terri- ble one. It is this: Why does God permit disasters? Me Insuranoe Some of the answers brought out in the book of Job will be men- tioned in the next two weeks' col- umns. For the present, the point is that there is no insurance, in this world, against trouble. To be sure, you can buy insurance which will put a check in your hand if your husband dies. But you cannot buy insurance which will guaran- tee he will live as long as you do. There is absolutely no insurance that life, your life, will not crash in. No amount of goodness, no heroism, no am@unt of service done to others, will insure you that you will go down to your By Mrs. Elsie Hamstead 4-I1 Club Meets At the April Evergreen 4tl Club meeting, Miss Ginger Creamer, co leader, announced a record hop for 4-H members, sponsored by i the 4-H Leaders Association to be held at the Community Center April 15 from 8 till 10:30 p. m.

Most other books of the Old testament are distinctly Jewish. this book of Job is not. The man J'eb is not a Jew; he is called (pur- ~o~:ely) vaguely a man from Uz, ~n,~ of the "children of the East."

THE CHURCH FOR ALL . .. ALL FOR THE CHURCH The Church is the greatest factor on earth for the building of character and good dtiz,a,hip. It is a storehouse of spiritnal values. ~Vithout a strong Church, neither democracy nor civilization 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 (~) For the sak~ of hi. community and nation. {4) For the sake of the Church itself, which needs his moral and material support.
