V. \~,mghan "If 1 can stop ~me heart from break- ins, I shall not live in vain; If 1 can ease one life in aching, Or ct~ol one pain, Or help one faintifig robin Unto his nest again, l shall uot live in vain." The years are many since Emily Dickinson penned these lines, but time has not dimmed their luster or their beauty. W'hen the harvest is abundant, the. marts of trade humming with activity of money changers and every 1nan's purse is lined with gold, the ,lature of man has been to turn from the spir- itual things of life to the mat,:rial. To measure all successes by a rule of golden power rather than give credit to men and measures of the day who are helping make this world a better place to live in. It is an easy gesture to extend the helping hand when your own fireside is glowing warm, your own larder well filled with worklly goods, when good health guards your loved ones; then it is a very simple nmttcr to extend the hand of good-fel- lowshilL Wheu the hour of adversity is upm you and yours, the fireside warmth is chilled, the pangs of misery clutch tine heart-strings; then, and only then is tile real character of man re~ealed. Character is the strength of the soul. It has and always will require strong- souled men to build our comnmnity and our nation into a glorious place for our children to inherit. The hour of our greatest distress is upon ns. It is always darkest before the dawn. Now is the time for us all to commune with ourselves in silent meditation and seek Divine inspiration to guide us aright. To really endeavor to "Be my brother's keeper", to nrake some tiny tot smile again and believc in the things we found so much hap- piness in; Santa Claus. The only true ha, ppiness gained in this life conaes from serving others without thought of emolument. When our heart is vib- rant with songs of love and sincere well wishes for others it seems to come echoing back into our own lives from afar oft', but with added beauty and charm. When we take to our bosom some brother, defeated in the battle of life, and renew his courage, show hiln the light of success beckoning hin] on, anoint his feet where the thorns have pierced the flesh, then we have not lived in vain. Then we will have that wealth of lmlq~iuess that cannot be measured by a rod of gold. The hour of Thanksgiving is at hand curity of peace beyond comllare. The curtaiu of night is jeweled with stars and the placid sea from its mirrored surface reflects them back. The sea, tile hills, the cove and the sky become as one creation in the mystery of night; sileut, cal:n and lovely night. lnstrcsl)ection, meditation or prayer; call it what you will, this is the time of day when one feels the urge to commuue with one's inner being. Long ago the Jewish thinkers who gave to us so much for spiritual guidance, taught us that in the solitude of the hills dwells all wisdonL A Shepherd ~f the Hills has guided us aright down through the centuries and His teach- ings arc just as true today as ever in tile past. The failure of men to heed theln accounts for nlllch present day misery. Let us now, for the seasoll that lies ahead try, and sincerely prac- tice some of the examples He set f:,r us. Let us be truly thankful for all that we have in comf(wt, worhlly pos- sessions and spiritual well being. Let ns en(leavgr to express our deep ap- preciation to our fellow men, to the children and to the dmnb creatures who are ever by our side. Only by fire is the sword tempered into vibrant steel. Only the dceert heat cau ripen the olive and dat~.. On- ly by trial and tribulation ,can man strengthen his character. The darkest hours of our lives become, in years t-~ folk)w, the brightest markers alon:: the trail. Have Faith in yourself and your fellow man, have Hope rather th-m surrender to despair and, ever let Charity be thy companion. -- :0:-- Do you know that Avalon has one of the finest all,year climates on the Pacific Coast of the United States ? --- :0:-- AVALON COMMUNITY CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH Rev.
