CHRISTMAS AND THE
Rev. Curtis . Shields' Christmas Sermon at First For
eign Church The Message of Good Tidings to the
World The Solution of the Great Problem of Life
Revelation of the Grace of God.
In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with them and
the Word was God John i, verse i.
The Word became flesh and
dwelt among us John 1, verse 14.
Selecting the above as his text
Rev. C. Ii. Shield delivered the
following interesting sermon Christ
"It is well that we come once
each year to the Christmas season.
It breaks up the routine of our
thought and widens our interest to
the inclusion of things other than
self. A vast amount of material
and incidental observance has
grown up about this joyous Cbrist
iau festival. In the midst of all
these things, we must not allow
ourselves, to depart from the real
spirit of the day.
"The Angel declared the Christ
mas message to be "Good tidings
of great joy, which should be to all
people." And the song of the
! Heaveuly host was '"Glory to God
iti the highest and on earth peace."
The spirit of the Christmas time is
joy and peace and it passes beyond
I the confines of the material and
I links itself with our highest spirit-
1 ual interests.
1 'The Incarnation is to-day the
! great theme of Christianity. In it
1 we see that mysterious miracle of
divine love, which brings God
1 down to matt and which in turn
. lifts man up to God.
I ..riA ., t .- t if

the incidentals of
Jesus birth. They tell of the
l angels, of the shepherds, of the
wise men. They mention the crowd
ed inn and the jealous Herod. And
we are glad that they leave us
these records of the blending
divinity and humanity in the ad
vent of our Lord. But John's re
cord is different. He begins not
with the birth but with the pre
ezisteuce of the Christ. . He wrote
alter the otuer evangelists, ana
with theological rather than his
torical purpose. His great aim
was to show that Jesus was ' 'the
Christ, the Son of God"."
The speaker said the whole
gospel of St. John was an elabo
ration and verification of the verses
read. Others look to the practical
application of the Gospel, but the
disciple of love sought out the
fundamental relations existing be
tween the divine manifestation seen
in the Incarnation and the divine
being which stood behind it. John
was given the title of "Theologian"
because of the terminology pe
culiar to his writings and which
gives a fuller appreciation of the
divine side of the Incarnation.
Continuing Mr. Shields said:
"It is not within the scope of
J this discourse to discuss the trinity.
But it is no more difficult to think
of God the Creator, and God the
Word united in one substance,
than for us to consider our own
spiritual and material natures bound
together in a single personality.
John's inspired conception of Christ
before the Incarnation, is summed
up in this first part of our text.
"In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God, and
the Word was God."
"Th; second passage of the text
tells us that this same Word which
we have been considering, "became
flesh and dweit among us." Here
the Word is manifested in expres
sion rather than in thought, There
is a striking correspondence between
j the clauses of the two passages in
the text. The clause of the first
I contains all it is possible for us to
1 fathom of the essential nature of the
j Word in relation to time, mode of

the beginning. He was with God.
At ,,. ,. ,5m tW iMK. ....
swer to the three great features of
the Incarnation of the Word as de
clared iu the second passage, lie
who "was in the beginning" as re
lated to eternity, became with rela
tion to time: He who 'was God,'
became flesh: He who was with
God, dwelt among us. We here
see the Word become the manifesta
tion of God iu his incarnate form ns
the Savior of men. Only as God is
expressed iu some term which is
common to humanity, can we be
able to- understand his plan and
purpose of redemption. This may
not be the only reason, but it is a
reason, and to us it may be a suffi
cient reason for the Incarnation.
The works of creation show us
much of God's power and glory.
We look upon the magnitude of the
universe and stand in awe before it.
Wc see the minute perfection of na
ture and in it we may read the wis
dom of God. Paul tells us that the
light of nature is sufficient to leave
men without excuse, but he docs
not tell us that nature, in herself is
able to show us a way of salvation.
All of nature's testimony is inter
preted by inexorable law. Provi
dence may teach us more specific
ally of God's purpose, but Provi
dence requires an interpreter. It
does not reveal God's person, it
only makes known darkly some of
His attributes, and a measure of
His dealings with mankind.
"If we look to Revelation we
may expect to approach nearer to a
knowledge of God's will concerning
us. A loving Father will not speak
to us in terms which we cannot un
derstand, but lodk carefully and
you will see that all revelation
points immediately or ultimately
toward the Christ who became flesh
and dwelt among us. At first
dimly, but with ever increasing
clearness, prophecy brings itself to
bear upon the coming of the Christ.
The separation of the chosen people
was for the same purpose, and con
tributed to the same end. "The
law was given by Moses, but grace
and truth came by Jesus Christ."
Here it is wc find the fullness of the
revelation of God in terms which
we can understand. Christ is the
plain statement, iu the flesh, of
which God is, and what he requires
us to be. In Him we see not the
God of Creation, but the God of
the Covenant. He is to us the
known quantity for solution of
the great problem of life. There
will be, and there can be, 110 more
perfect revelation of the person,
and of the will of God, than we
find in Jesus Christ. All that came
before looked forward to him. All
that came after must look back to
him. We may learn more about
him. We may learn more perfectly
to understand and to interpret his
words and his works, but we will
never know" him more than the sum
of divine truth which the Christ
brought with him into the world.
Ultimate truth may be lost and re
discovered, we may observe new
applications, but we cannot change
the truth itself and the revelation
of the "Word made flesh," is ulti
mate for all times and all peoples.
"The Word not only became
flesh, but he also dwelt among us.
Thus he hallowed souufof our most
precious relations. We gather up
some of these things at Christmas
tsme. It gives an added blessing
to childhood, and bestows a new
dignity upon manhood when we
remember that the divine Word
made his abode iu u tabernacle of
flesh. Through these earthly
means we are lifted naturally and
easily to the lofty truths of redemp
tion and eternal life. We are told
that Newton approached what we
now know as the universal law of
gravitation, through the results of
minor experiments and deductions.
The development of the law of fall
ing bodies suggested an application
beyond the limits of terrestial ob
jects. Computation proved it to
hold good for the relations existing
between the eaith and the moor.
It was then but n 11 iturul progress
for his master imagination to apply

the law was manifested in the ter
rcstial so it led Newton on until he
grasped it iu its absolute and uni
"In like manner Jesus Christ,
manifest iu the flesh, leads us up to
a saving knowledge of eternal truth,
and in so leading us, he reveals to
us the beauty of the divine attri
butes. Some evenings since, with
the Christmas thought iu mind, I
watched the clouds hang btack over
the sea as a somber day was draw
ing to its close. But as the sun de
scended toward our western moun
tains, his beams broke through
thejr cloudy barriers, were refracted
by the watery prisms in the East,
and lighted up the lowering clouds
witha brilliant band of promise
which revealed every component of
the rays of light. It was to me a
type of that mysterious Incarnation,
today we emphasize; for so our
Lord's divinity passing through the
veil of his flesh, lights humanity's
clouded hope with holy promise,
and reveals to us the grace and
truth of God."
' Knt Less Meat.
A writer in Collier's Weekly has
shown in a recent article that
Americans are eating less meat
than they did fifty years or so ago,
and are consuming more vegetables,
cereals and dairy pioducts. This
can easily be believed, and the
change undoubtedly is one for the
better. Even now, however, the,
people of this country eat too much
meat as a rule, and their general
health would be improved by in
dulging iu it more sparingly and
by making greater use of vegetables
and cereals at their meals. Ameri
cans are coming to understand
better year by year the nutritive
value of other foods and 'to realize
that meals made up almost entirely
of meats are not a necessity even iu
the case of those who perform hard
labor. No hard and fast rules can
be prescribed as to the quantity of
of meat that is needed by each per
son iu order to sustain strength,
because it will vary widely in the
case of different persons, but it can
be ascertained easily by "making
As a natural result of the change
in the diet of the American people,
it is testified by the wtiter in
Collier's that Americans have
grown healthier during the last
half century, but he attributes that
result also in considerable part to
more outdoor life and better sanita
tion and cooking, all of which un
doubtedly have been contributing
factors. He estimates that the
average use of meat has been re
duced thirty-six per cent in the
last fifty years, and shows that the
consumption of dairy foods is three
times what it was forty years ago.
But meat still remains the favorite
food of the American people. Four
years ago they spent $1,625,000,000
for meat and $1,075,000,000 for
vegetables. Springfield ( 111. )
