Va. 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. It looks like something Don Quixote might, have tilted at. Fragile, teeterin9, like a ludi- crous, oversized toy. Yet this scarecrowish windmill can harness ener. Among other things, it can cause water to spill into your kitchen sink. : Things are not always what :I::I::F : they seem. The outer package can be a deceiver with people, as well as with objects. Funny, isn't it, that although we know better we respond so readily to the things, the people that look best--the sparkling diamond that turns out to be a rhine- stone, the phony with the won- dedul, flashing smile? No one ever makes it through life without stumbling occa- sionally. So be not ashamed. The thing is to learn by such experiences, to pro'ess and not retreat. In case you've for- gotten, the Church i a wonder- ful teacher.
