A FEW years ago I attended
a negro spiritual meeting, go
ing for the sole purpose of finding
out what it was all about.
During the sermon, the old negro
preacher said, "If there is anyone
in the congregation who likes sin,
let him stand up.".
" When an old sister in the rear
stood up, the parson said, "What,
Sister Jones, do you like sin ?"
"Oh, excuse me, parson," she
jsaid, "L thought you said gin."
The parson then preached on the
evil of drink so vividly that the
entire congregation staggered out
!of the church.
I can remember the time when
my father was taking us kids
through the park. As we were
strolling past the zoo, I noticed
my kid sister very intently eyeing
the stork. As she walked away
she whispered," Gee, daddy, he

In The Here and Now
By Rev. Norvin C. Duncan
E often speak of the om
nipotence of God, as we
think ot His ' .attributes. Without
entering into any theological as
pect of the attributes of God,-there
is a suggestion which Christmas
always makes, and that is the-helpfulness
6f God something v which
He imposes upon Himself, of
course; but viewed from our hu
man side of life, it is helpfulness.
The baby, in the cradle is help
less. . He is in the hands of human
beings, dependent upon their love'
and care. He is in the world and
finds no room in the Inn, but
must lie in a cattle stall. Through
out His earthly life He was in the
hands of men. He never forced
anybody to do anything. ' He
wrought miracles that He might
feed other?, but no miracle to feed
Himself. Men did to Him what
they listed. They rejected Him,
they mocked Him, scourged Him,
and hanged Him on a "tree, and
He was as a lamb dumb before the
shearers. And still that goes on.
We proclaim the omnipotence of
God, and then wonder why so
many things go on in the world.
Why do men still blaspheme,, and
in their lives deny God? Why
does sin go on, and evil never
checked? Why pain, sorrow, trou
bles, and tribulations?. Where is
the omnipotence of God ?
-The cradle is the answer. Love
is in the cradle. Here is God's
ft fl Wishes
May your Yuletide be
joyous and the New
.Year prosperous and

FRANK L. HENRY, JR.,
I Ta, Y
expression, His revelation of Hyn
self. God is love, and what can
love do but appeal. Those tender
baby hands are love's appeal to
the world. Love can not fight,
crush, kill, destroy. Love can sac
rifice, and love can die, but love
can win only by appeal.
In the unity and completeness
of God helplessness is a part of
His omnipotence. (There is no
power equal to the power of love.
In the . end love conquers. The
helplessness , of God on the cross
made the "cross the power of Sal
vation to mankind.
, So, on this Christmas day, let
us look in that cradle and sec,
feel, and be .won by the power of
divine love. Hands are outstretch
ed; a baby s ; smile, a baby's need
appeals to us. When men's eyes
are opened to see love they al
ways kneel, as did shepherds and
wise men, to wonder and adore.
