Bringing Christ to the Nations
THE INTERNATIONAL LUTHERAN HOUR
“Over Station KBOIS every Sunday morning 11:30
Publicity Department 3558 South Jefferson Avenue
Saint Louis 18, Missouri
Milwaukee, Wisconsin, March 10 (Special) “America’s
greatest home problem is not the housing shortage, but the
spiritual rebuilding of the fami’y after the war,” Dr. Wal
ter A. Maier, Professor at Concordia Seminary, Saint Lou*
o is, declared here today in an international broadcast over
0 _ .
the Lutheran Hour. Assert
ing that between seven and
eight million families will be
forced to share their homes
with others, he asserted: —
“Households which find
space for other families of
ten have no room for relig
ion. Architects and contrac
tors confidently work togeth
er in erecting wha: they call
the nation's ‘best homes,’ but
they often overlook Scrip
ture’s warning: ‘Except the
Lord build the house, they
labor in vain that built it.’
We shake our heads at the
.slum-like conditions in which
many families — including
particularly our returning veterans—are torceu io live;
but multitudes in Ameriea actually applaud the worse-than
slum morality that marks the home life in some of the na
tion’s important families, as an orgy of sin, II.e debauch of
divorce, Sodom-and-Gomorrah perversions increase.”
“Despite the war, which should have knocked sense into
ts' e nation, despite the mercy of the Almigliiy through
which not a single bomb fell on an American home, while
o millions of dwellings across the sea were blown into smould
ering fragments, family life in tills country has cropped to
the lowest depths in our national existence.”
“Listen to this and shudder; District Attorney Edmund
L. Brown of San Francisco, reports that during 1945, 14,
000 babies were born in that city, but 18,000 unborn bab
ies were pul to death; and according to investigators, the
San Francisco police know the exact house on Fillmore
Street there where 500 prenatal murders were committed
“Ti e divorce debauch has become a national disgrace.
Before the war those who wished to break their marriage
vows were generally found outside the church; now. how
ever, the swelling number of broken homes often reaches
o deep into the churches. The courts are hardened, attor
neys often practice collusion, husband and wife frequently
arc guilty of perjury, children’s lives are ofter wreeked.”

STORMS OF LIFE
(By Myrtle M. Good low)
On the sea of life there’ll be
Storms that rage relentlessly,
Storms that toss us to and fro
Till the tears of sorrow flow
For life can’t always be
Peaceful on life’s restless sea,
There must be storm clouds too
To dim the sky of blue,
But when the waves are tossing
And you don't know what to do
Just remember there is one
Who will safely see you through
’Tis the Christ of Galilee
Who calmed the angry sea
And the winds obeyed His will
When He said “Peace be still”
And when the storms of life
We should never be dismayed
He will do the same for us
If in Him we put our trust.
