A RED CROSS SERMON
Sunday morning the Rev. A. Craig
Bowdish said in part on "The Spirit
of the Red Cross" that this great
organization which adequately meets
the great emergencies and calamities
In life gained its spriit of service
from Jesus. Early in his ministry he
went back to Nazareth, his old home,
and assisted in the service in the
synagogue. He selected a portion of
Messianic prophecy from Isaiah which
he declared represented his policy
and work. "The Spirit of the Lord
is upon me, because he annointed me
to preach good tidings to the poor:
he hath sent me to proclaim release
to the captives, and recovering of
sight to the blind, to set at liberty
them that are bruised, to proclaim the
acpeptable year of the Lord," (Luke
4: 18, 19.) Those who heard Jesus'
reading and comments remarked on
his gracious spirit and earnest pur
pose, His whose life strengthened the
meaning of these words.
Now the great American Red Cross
in the same spirit and purpose has
multiplied this work a million fold.
It is the modern God Samaritan with
twentieth century efficiency.
CHRISTMAS AT WAILUKU UNION
The Christmas Reason was observed
at the Wailuku Union Church last
Sunday. In the morning the Christ
mas Sunday School celebration took
place at which time the children sang
Christmas hymns and carols, and
brought their presents for the Kula
Chinese Sunday School. At 10 o'clock
a baptismal service took place.
Hymns were sung by the school as
the parents brought their children to
be consecrated. The minister bap
tized the following: Alice Emily,
Mildred Ethel, Barbara June daugh
ters of Mr. and Mrs. E. R. Bevins;
and Burr, son of Mr. and Mrs. L. R.
Poinsettia in great profusion was
used by Mrs. E. R. Bevins as chair
man for the decorations of the church
for the Christmas service in, the
evening. A large audience was pres
ent The special numbers sung by
the choir were "Silent Night" and
"Noel". This music and the Christ
mas hymns everyone enjoyed. A
generous offering was given in spe
cial envelopes for the American Board
to the Armenian and Syrian Relief.
Rev. Rowland B. Dodge, the minis
ter, preached from the text: "And
they shall call his name Emmanuel
God with us." The sermon in out
line was as follows "The hope of
Christianity becoming the religion of
the world is to be found in, the fact
that it was born into the world, and
was not made with mn's minds.
The religion we honor today is the
religion of Jesus, whose birth we
celebrate, and his religion was fully
expressed in this wonderful word,
Emmanual God with us. There
never was presented to the world
such a religion before, and there
never 4ias been since, the central
thought of which is that God the
Father is always with us. Religion
is given men to save them from them
selves and to unite them with God.
The Christian message drives home
to our hearts the way in which fel
lowship is possible.
1. In Christ God enters our life
and lifts us up. The Apoptles of
Jesus had one message. It was short
and they told it everywhere. It was
"God is with men." Men have at
tempted to lift themselves to God,
but have found they could not do so.
We cannot lift ourselves. The great
minds and hearts of all ages have
risen toward God. not by attempting
any one great thing, but by com
muning with the Creator. What
Jesus did was to make it possible
for all men everywhere to grasp the
truth through his own life that God
comes to men. Jesus showed that a
man cannot lift himself, but that God
can and must lift him.
Christ at this Christmas season Is
taking hold of men's lives as has not
been the case since the days his
birth was first heralded." "A por
tion of General Pershing's letter to
the American soldier was read as an
example of the place Jesus is having
in men's hearts. "Hardship will be
your lot, but trust in God will give
you comfort; temptation will befall
you, but the teachings of our Savior
will give you strength. Let your
valor as a soldier and your conduct
as a man be an inspiration to your
comrades and an honor to your coun
try." 2. "Christ is. God with us in every
possible phase of life and character.
The unique thing about Christ is
that he fully understood and repre
sented the universal nature of
humanity." Thig fact was illustrated
by"Scott,y Kid." Christ cannot be
claimed by one nation only, or by
merely those who are seekingfreedoin.
People hampered by all kinds of cir
cumstances and dilllculties and by all
human hinderances can live above
these hinderances by allowing the
spirit of Christ to fill their lives.
In the last part of the sermon Mr.
Dodge showed how God is with us in
the work and pleasures of life that
all kinds of work were honorable
from the Christian point of view, and
that God can understand all the vari
ous phases of our life's experiences.
The word Emmanuel brings comfort
for it helps us to endure hardship
through the thiight that God knows
and appreciates all.
"God in Christ is with you. He
can make whole again the pattern of
your life. Christmas time is the
season for gazing again upon that
pattern. God with you can make the
pattern whole again,. Emmanuel
means that into flesh and blood and
into all that humanity naturally de
sires, God has entered. This has .en
tered. This is the comfort of It.
This is the Christmas message.
We are learning so much about
waste these days. But have we learn
ed that greatest of all life's lessons
about waste that work is wasted
and life Itself Is wasted unless God
is with us? No labor is really pro
ductive that is not for God. No ef
fort is really worth while if spent up
on self alone.
The world Is also learning a tre
mendous lesson of giving' these days.
Let s remember at this Christmas
not only to give what God has given
us in the matter of money and pos
sessions, but let us give ourselves
as we never have before to Him who
knows our hearts."
