We Need Action NOW!
As an individual, what
are YOU doing about
the future throat of
the Atomic Bomb? . . .
When American fliers dropped
their atomic bomb on Hiroshima,
the world suddenly awoke to
the fact that we have been cata
pulted into an age in which we
must do more than merely wish
that war be outlawed from the
earth. The time has come when
each of us must do something
Our civil and religious leaders,
awake to the Christian respon
sibility that is theirs, are agaio
emphasizing that our only hope
is a united Christian brotherhood
of men and nations. Methodist
Bishop G. Bromley Oxnam, of
New York, stressed this fact re
cently when he told a gathering
in, St. Louis:
"We are looking forward to
that day, praying for that day,
when around the world there may
be one Christian fellowship . . .
that the Kingdom of God may
become a reality upon the face of
Everyone who calls himself *
Christian longs for a united Chris
tianity. Ringing in his ears is the
prayer of the Good Shepherd . . .
"And other sheep I have that are
not of this fold; them also I must
bring. And they shall hear My
voice; and there (hall be one fold
and one Shepherd." (St. John
Every Christian leader km a
unified Christianity first among
hii ambitions. Yet so deeply root
ed, so apparently Insurmountable
are the barriers that exist, that out
hearts sink u we turvey them.
But there U i way. The Good
Shepherd Himself iniiitl that
there is a way, and that way the
united prayer of Christians. "All
things whatsoever thou ask in
prayer, believing, ye shall re
ceive." (St. Matt. 21:22). "If ye
ask anything in My Name, I will
do it." (St. John 14:14). "Verily
I say unto you: if ye have faith
. . . nothing shall be impossible
unto you." (St. Matt. 17:20).
Already millions of Christians
all over the world are united in a
movement of prayer that the will
of Christ may be fulfilled. Men
differ in their interpretations of
what He meant by "one fold and
one Shepherd," but no one can
mistake His clearly expressed will
in this matter. Therefore, let us
not debate His meaning. Instead
let us unite in prayer that His
will be fulfilled.
We are calling upon you . . .
upon Christians of every denom
ination ... to join in this vital
movement. We an asking for
only on* thing... youf prayers.
