cipleship emphasized in today’s
Scripture is the command that
we love one another. The obli
gation to love is as old as hu
man life, but here it receives a
new emphasis because Jesus
gives holy love a new motive.
He does this by relating his love
to his death. His sacrificial dy
ing gives both measure and
meaning to Christian love. . He
loved his disciples not only with
his life, but also with his death.
| To love more is utterly impossi
j ble. His love cost .him his life.
The test of our discipleship
is that we love as Christ loves.
This love of one Christian for
another is something very spe
cial. It goes beyond benevo
; lence, and it exceeds generosity.
! It is love that 'has become con
cern. Hence the two tests of
discipleship merge together in
one test —caring or acting love.
I True, holy love involves incred-
J ible suffering, as the story of
j the cross reveals. But love can
win its way only by suffering—
it has no other authority, no
j other weapon, ft succeeds orj
fails only as it expresses itself;
in concern. We do not identify!
a Christian by outward trap-;
| pings. We recognize him by his
serving love —love that is char
i acterized and clarified by the
practical good it does.
In the end 'the world will not
be won by campaigns, visita
tions or revival meetings, al
though each one of these has its
place. The world will be won,
our Scripture says, when Chris
tians come together in the warm
fellowship of holy love express
ed in caring sacrifice.
When will the world be
brought to Christ? Only when
it sees this test of discipleship
in living reality.

The Board discussed in con
siderable detail the need for an
assessment policy and the ap
plication of various possible pol

Town of Edentpn. and after
these discussions the following
conclusions were unanimous:
The Town of Edenton should,
adopt an assessment policy as'

and allow the Board of Public
Works 60 days in which to study

this policy in line with the
thinking of the two boards and
conditions as they exist in the
Town of Edenton. The unani

Public Works is that by handling
the matter in this manner we
will have in the interim period
au assessment policy on which
corrective legislation could be
introduced, possibly before ac
