The Yuletide season is with us again.
It is with us but not. of us, for much of the earthi
.knows little of joy today..
Upon many millions of people the sun shines as brigh^
ly as in the days of old, but its lustre is dimmen by the
shedded blood of suffering humanity.
The benign smile of the Divine One is as tender and
as loving as when the world was young, but the twen
tieth century finds too many of the human race bent upon
pleasure, and profit. and revenge and forgetful of th3
beauties of life as seen through eyes that are better and
holier than ours.
It is with this knowledge that the people of our little
community approach the Yuletide time, when all should
be sunshine and gladness, and joy.
But if we may not sway the r2st of the world, if our
voice be not heard beyond the confines of our own fire
sides we yet may look upward with a feeling of gla L
ness and thankfulness that the horrors that are engui
ing the rest of the world have at least passe-d us by.
We may be thankful that we have even an hour of pea :e
and prosperity for our country, though no on) knows
whe'n the withering hand of the blight of the century
maey b spread over our own fair land.
Let us be joyful today, but let u ningle that joy with
compassion for the stricken ones of other lands, to wiin.
the Yuletide season is but a mockery and an agon ing
