A Christmas Message
Our present-day world-life, domestic and social, commercial and
industrial, economic and political, supremely needs the unselfish love,
the revealing light and the directing wisdom of the Christ-Spirit in
the solution of problems positively imminent, and the conduct of
affairs universally perplexing and disturbing.
With tlie perseverance and force of all the past centuries of
waiting and working, the love, the revelation and the wisdom of the
Triune (iml--Father, Son and Holy Ghost—seek incarnation in uni
versal human life to make perfect the performance of all its affairs.
Every Christmas season pleadingly emphasizes this fact.
I'lie correct interpretation of prevailing conditions is the human
need oi lfivine co-operation atuT direction. Christ is very present
with us, but can only become part of us if we make "room for Him
in the Inn." Let us all so do and rejoice in heaven's message of
beauty and power, "Lo. this is our God; we have waited for Him and
He will save us; we have waited for Him, we will be glad and rejoice
iu ll:s salvation. He destroys the face of the coverir.-g east over all
people and the veil that is spread over till nations. He swallows tip
death in victory and wipes the tears from off all faces. He has glory
in tlie highest and proclaims peace upon earth through the good
will of men."
