That's not why so many colonial churches have weather vanes atop their steeples. Our early American ancestors were religious--and prac- tical. A weathercock had to be mounted well above trees and roofs which could alter the course of the wind. Often the local church steeple was the highest place. Nor is there anything irreverent in the custom. For cen- turies man has looked to the Church _for guidance, direction. hope. It seems natural as he pursues his daily work lo look to lhe Church to see which way the wind blows. We get our weather'news taday from press, radio and TV. Bu! look to the church of your choosing to gain the faith and courage that see reverent souls through "fair wind or tbul."
