otherwise the service will be held in
the Baptist Chu^i at the same hour.
The cemetery is a place that re
coives the mortal remains of those
who are near and dear to us. In some
section of ground in some place, most
of us have those "who have gone on
before." Most of our hearts have had
to bow beneath this great sorrow,
because of loved ones or dear
friends. As the last "Amen" was
said and we turned from "God's
holy-acre*' what' were some of the
emotions that stirred in our aching
hearts? Bui there rump an emerging
awareness of a personal loss, the
sense of broken relationships, or ra
ther Suspended relationships, the loss
?>f a c<>mrade or intimate personal_
friend? Was there a sense in which
we felt that we had been cheated?
That the universe was not kind to
us? Did the feeling come that the
suffering, pain-racked body was now
clothed in quiet and peaceful sleep?
That life's storms were behind?
Perhaps these and many more
such-like emotions swept our souls,
but if we left God's holy-acre as
Christians, there came a growing
inner warmth in our hearts that
comforted us and sustained us, for
as we deposited our dear ones and
left their earthly bodies among that
which they would some day become,
we could luff living, because 19
centuries ago, Jesus, the Teacher.
came from Nazareth, was similarly
placed, and when His friends came
hark to complpte their ministry of
love, He was not there. And, we
lhank God that He was not there,
even as He said before.
Kaster, therefore, speaks to us and
says, "that only that which is mor
tal of our loved-dead do We place
in the 'Silent City', for they them
selves (their spirits) have returned
unto their Father and God." How
happy we are that Joseph's new tomb
did not hold the Son of God. How
thrillingly new are the words of the
angel, "Do not be bewildered. You
are looking for Jesus of Nazareth,
who was crucified? He has risen, He
is not here. That is the place where
Hi- was laid." (Moffatt)
Death is the judgment pronounced
hv .1 righteous judge upon an un
nghteous act. Yet our God and Fa
tlier has used even this judgment,
for those who die in Cfirisli as a
means of release from our temper
al bodies that we may be clothed
upon and have a body like unto the
resurrected body of our dear Lord.
Therefore we can exclaim with Paul,
"O death where is thy sting? O
grave, where is thy victory? . . . But
thanks be to God, which giveth us
the victory through our Lord Jesus
Christ Therefore, my beloved breth
ren, be ye steadfast, unmoveable, al
ways abounding in the work of the
Lord, forasmuch as ye know that
your labor is not ip vain in the
