1 THE COMMUNITY CHURCH NEWS Vol.1 Friday, December 21, 1934 STOW, OHIO No 48 MINISTER'S COLUMN And this is Christmas, Christmas. So fixed because of the birth of one called Jesus, and into this cold cheerless season of tihe year comes the mightiest incentive to bring happiness and joy to everybody in every land throughout the world. Never mind the exact year or clay, called Christmas. Jesus was born and a few cf the thinkers, men of the highest caste came from afar with expressions of great joy, and those human philosophers left their treasures in a barn with the parents of a newborn babe. No disappointment to them that a star led to a crib where oxen fed No, No. They questioned not God or man as they shared the shelter with the inn-keeper' stock. Strange place for the wise, the learned, the rich to find their King. But here they witnessed, they gave of their gold, they worshipped and a mighty flame warmed their hearts and back to a far off land they traveled, satisfied, enriched in heart and soul and mind. Think: the birth of one so long ago has inspired the twinkling lights -on millions of trees, the evergreen, the pine, the olive, the trees in every land. Christmas has actuated in the human hearts the giving of some expression of love among hundreds of millions cf the human family. In this bleak, dead winter season multitudes of little folk will pour from their schools with teachers, parents and kin folk to celebrate and enjoy the season's thought and joyous time. Yes I know we can find fault with the world today. I know too that the birth of Jesus marks the mightiest transforation that ever swept across the earth, that the undimmed enthusiasm cf every succeeding Christmas is a mighty witness to His scveign majesty of today and to the historic fact of long ago that the wise men were actuated in their quest of God. I know too, sir, that your light will shine the blighter if you come to worship Him and serve Him. What a dreary span of time from the gathering in of the harvests to the days of sewing seed, through storm, slush, clouds, cold, trees dead, ST 8, S S dead, flowers dead, nature apparently relentless and cruel with-holding its beauty and bounty for a time, even the sun sharing i t s warmth sparingly. Then into this chill, this gloom, this span of time when Nature is silent, in this otherwise dull spot is found heaven and earth's most happy season, Christmas.

The best of Christmas, however, is not without, it is within. Put your hand over your heart and exclaim, "Here is Christmas." And now, my friend, what is Christmas to you and you and you? A day? A present? A party? As the wise men followed the trail far off to their home land there was more than a star before them, they had found Him An experience burned within. Life, God, an inexplainable boundless beyond, an eternity. An enriched soul-life was born that Christmas day. GEO. M. HULiME, Minister.

SHAKESPEARE WA THE MINISTER'S THREE MINUTE BIBLE STUDY These remarks were prefaced by examples of how people when they wanted to make harmony drew close together almost crawled into each others pockets as it were. The lesson was obvious. How much better might we sing if only all would gather close around the piano, the chorister and the minister. Don't sit in the back seat. Now, there are 27 books in the New Testament. On these twentyseven books we have five groups: 1. The Books of Biography, or the four Gospels. 2. The Book of History or the Acts of the Apostles. 3. Fourteen Pauline Epistles. 4. Seven General Epistles. 5. Revelation of St. John. PERSONAL NOTES Attend Bible school and church Sunday. Buy your baked goods at Cross's (Adv.)

(Adv) Mr. Harry Leiby told us Sum day that there are 5000 or more homes in Summit county slated for foreclosure proceedings, 30,000 people will be homeless, that is, if the banks have their way. "Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them." Eccl 12:L Mrs. J. F. Haartje, West Arndale road, had a birthday last Sunday and a birthday party last Saturday night. The cake, which was said to be v^ery good, was made by Mary Olson. A special feature of the occasion was an hours instruction in Harmony on the piano 'by Mr. Zircle of Kent and Stow. Did you see the Chirstmas flowers at the Silver Lake Green House? Better go down and look at them before they are all gone. (Adv.) Here is what various little folks in the Primary Department ot our Bible School said Christmas meant to them. 1. Happiness, 2.

Hampton has built an attractive two car. garage. It seems to be of tile construction, has what might be called a Dutch colonial roof, making thereby a spacious second floor room or loft. Windows properly designed and spaced add greatly to the appearance. Mr. and Mrs. G-eorge Whalen, 160 Eldgewood drive, are the proud parents of an eight and a quarter pound baby boy, born Saturday, December 15th. They have named him George Jr. Last Monday evening the Stow Music club held a four course dinner and Christmas party at the John Brown Tavern, Hudson.

STOW considerable amount of candy and baked goods also passed over the tables in exchange for money. The affair was both a financial success and an enjoyable occasion. Here are some of the things which the Ladies Guild have done this past year; besides giving considerable money to the church, etc, they had the hymnals rebound, secured the Easter music, bought two brooms for the janitor, paid for repairing the floor in the ladies room and church basement, and paid for repairing the furnace, which was no small item. If only the men had done half as much we might have been able to give the Minister a raise. W. J. Grubb and wife, 360 Gorge boulevard expect as company over Saturday, Sunday and 1 Christmas W. J.

10 THE COMMUNITY CHURCH NEWS 10 THE SEASONS GREETINGS with Best Wishes for Christmas and a Happy New Year Prfend^s Service Station P. WILLIAMSON, Prop. We are advised to drive with care these slippery mornings. With school children along the road and ice on the pavement we should drive slow enough to have our car under control at all times. Last Monday we saw four cars off the road on the hill on Home Avenue, Akron. And Mr. Zircle tells cf seeing a car slide, smash and break up, breaking the leg of a bystander, injuring another car, etc. Let us be careful. Mr. Wm. R. Lodge tells us of a young man whom we have here in Stow, a graduate of the local High school, and at present attending Kent State college. This young man with a natural ability for art work has developed into a real artist. Mr. Lodge who was engaged by the Palls Better Housing Committee to put on a Nature Exhibit in their exposition in the old Perrine furniture building, secured this young man, Donald Peck by name, to paint a nature scene as a background for the nature exhibit. In less than two days he painted a fine landscape on a canvass eight feet high by twenty-four feet long. No copy was used, the only guide being verbal suggestions. The foreground in. this exhibit is being arranged with birds, animals. etc. in such a way as to make it similar to the one put on by the Stow Garden club last August. The Fall s business men are arranging exhibits of building material. The exhibit opened December 18th and will continue for three months. Everyone invited.

This we regret for it is our desire that people of our Church and Bible School THINK about the things of more permanent value. It would be nice if our folk s would start laying up Treasures in Heaven where moths wculd not destroy, nor thieves break through and steal. However, you have to think to do it. The following essay had no name attached only "X", nevertheless we have a very good idea who sent it in. We publish it because it is good. HOW TO MAKE OUR BIBLE SCHOOL LARGER, BETTER If we could only have an epidemic of S. S. A. (Sunday School Attendance) as we have epidemics of measles or flu and folks did not take such precautions against it, "A Larger and Better Sunday School" problem wculd be avoided. A problem in the opinion of most folks that rests entirely with the officers and teachers, which should not be. B 7 increased attendance, naturally we would have more talent, enthusiasm would be increased according to our numbers, more vital interest in our work which could be broadened, as there would be more shoulders to bear tire burden would result. "How to Make Our Sunday School Larger and Better?" Does it rest with the teachers? Not entirely.

But all these qualities will be seemingly lost if we do not come with a receptive heart and mind unless we do, it will just mean that we will have to come more regular and more often before we feel we have received any great good, for surely though we realize it or not, the ground is broken a little more each time, harrowed and cultivated, until at last the seed of Truth and Love finds a foothold, and if we continue to come it grows and grows and maybe reaches out to our neighbor or friend, and they come. Maybe not with that needed receptive heart and mind (but that is where we as followers of Christ must work ever harder) prevail ui>-:n them to come again and a'iain and so by and by the Truth v.-ill bp planted in a ferrile spot prepared in their hearts by their previous attendance. Fcrget all about the usual S. S. A. epidemic precautions (excuses). Come with that receptive heart, feel that ycu will receive a full measure of.good from our lessons love and kindly feelings and the handclasp cf good fellowship from other members. Come prepared to enjoy our songs, attend other services and meetings cf the church, and we will probably hear you brag (like we sometimes hear you when you get the flu) Yes, I got it too.
