Here's a man who knows where he's going--and it's a good thing he does! Be- cause even a small craft can flounder pretty badly if it gets too far off course. How about you? Do you know where you're going? If you're like many of us, you probably have your moments of doubt. That's where the Church comes in. The teachings of the Church give us the basic understanding and philosophy we need if we are to do a good job of navigating our way through life. In the Church we learn the meaning of faith--and we learn, too, why our Faith has endured through the cen- turies. We come to realize the wonder and beauty of wisdom, kindness and tolerance. If you feel that you've gotten off your course somehow.., don't try to find your way back alone. Remember that your church stands ever ready to welcome you. musical programs will enrich those present to the continuing  VAN TOL. need of service as "Men In ;Fiowers i Mission".
