" Charles Town, W. Vs. ~ I__:.~,. the rest of the Bible. Why is this ? A Head Held High The reason is to be found not only in the fact that this book has an intricate and fascinating plot, not simple like Ruth but compli- cated, with a kind of barbaric dash about it. A tale that begins with a drinking party and ends with a massacre, is not "milk for babes." This however is not the main rea- son, one suspects, why the story has been preserved. It is rather that Esther brings out dramatically some valuable points about relig- ion that is not expressed in words (prayers, liturgies) but in action. Look at this one theme: "Cour- age in Crisis." (If the reader of this column has not read the book of Esther lately, he should do so before reading on.) The reader will think of Queen Esthers courage at once; but who put the notion into her head? It was her cousin and former guardian Mordecai. Now it is easy to tell some one else to be brave--"Let's you and him fight!" ---but Mordecai was not that sort of person. He had a kind of cour- age himself. Refusing as he did to bow down to Haman was a risky thing to do. He could easily get his own head taken off for it. But Mordecai had a proper sense Of his personal dignity. The Timing of Destiny If the rest of the family were like Mordecai and Esther, what- ever religion they had they did not talk about it. It would have sound- ed pious for Mordecai to have said, "I fear God only, therefore I will not kiss the dust before this man Haman." But he didn't sa,v that. It would have sounded pious, too, if he had told his young cousin, "God has brought you to the hour of destiny." But he didn't say that either. What he did say was, "Who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this ?" He did not profess to know everything. He would not say flatly that this was the reason why Esther was queen. "Who knows--?" he said. It might be a mistake to approach the king--a fatal mistake. It was a risk--but worth taking. There is something very fine here. Courage is always a matter of risk. Courage based on a sure thing is not courage. Furthermore, while (as always) Mordecai did not talk about God, the reader has the feeling that he must have believed. The Queen and the Occasion; Mordecai just felt that they matched too well to be an accident. But who matched them? Any one who believes in destiny has a choice: either an im- personal deity, a machine, a blind fate, or else a wise and powerful God. The timing of destiny is either an unexplainable happen-so, or else it comes fro~ the planning of God. / The paratrooper has faith in his "chute." The motorist has faith in his brakes. The shopper has aith in the brand-name she buys. All of us exercise our faith a hundred times a day. Religious faith is like its every-day cousin. It is the same im- l licit reliance. , . the same daring confidence. Religious faith comes when we seek it. But there is always the Seap. Man has to step from his worldly floor into the spiritual space whereGod reveals his power and love. He must decide to believe what he cannot prove! Like the leap of the paratrooper, the leap of faith begins months arlier in careful training. The day a famil Kar toaP d rogulargy the t ining beg|as. THE CHURCH FOR ALL.. : ALL FOR THF 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 nor civilization can survive. There are four sound reasons why every person should attend services regularly and support the Church. They arc: (I),For his own sake. (2) For his children's sake. (3) For tlre sake of his community and nation. (4) For the sake of the Church itself, which needs his moral and material support. Plan to go to church regularly and read your Bible daily. Day Book Chapter Verse~ Sunday Romans 5 I-5 Monday Hebrews I0 19-23 Tuesday Psalms 118 6-9 , Wednesday I Corinthians 13 1-13 Thursday" Psalms 18 28-32 Friday Isaiah ~ 2-4 Saturd$~v [ Timotl~ 4} ~12 Courap in Crisio, ~ So the lovely young Queen took over from her wise old cousin. She took her life in her hands for the sake of her people's lives. There is a great deal more to be said, but the reader will think of it, about Esther's courage. One act of brav- ery did not settle the matter. There had to be planning and scheming after that. Mere cour- age, without brains, is not enough. That is why men have extermin- ated tigers and tigers have not ex- terminated men. But the thing to remember is: WGy was Esther brave in the moment that called for bravery? It was not that she was hypnotized or bullied into courage by Mordecai; not that she was a daredevil. She found the courage because she knew that on it. on her, many lives depended.
