During the coming week we shall
observe Christmas, the birthday of our
Saviour. We all want to have a happ>
Christmas. Happiness presupposes
peace, peace with God, with ourselves,,
and our fellewman. That peace for
which all the hearts of men are yearn
ing can be found only in the Christ
child. “He is our peace, who hath
made both one, and hath broken down
the middle wall of partition between
us," says St. Paul. Through faith in
Jesus our sins are blotted out; we
have peace with God and ourselves.
Then we shall also be willing to for
give others who sin against us.
Since Christmas marks the birthday
of our Saviour through whom all sins
are forgiven, it is a good time to
straighten out the kinks that have tan
gled our lives during the past year.
Those harsh words which we spoke,
which went like a knife to the soul,
and for which we perhaps never sought
pardon—when will we find a better
time to make it right then right no\y
as we prepare our hearts for Christ
mas? And is there any coldness be
twaen us and someone else? Melt it
before the glowing fires of Christmas
and never let it freeze again. Let
there be peace in the heart, peace in
the home, peace with everybody every
where—yea, “Peace On Earth.”
Services will be held at Hope Lu
theran on Wednesday evening, De
cember' 24, at 8 o’clock. The Sunday
School children will present a beauti
ful, colorful Christmas pageant based
on the Sacred Record of Matthew and
Luke. Services Christmas Day at 7

Some Christmas calls
will be delayed
Although millions of dollars wortft of new
equipment has been added throughout our terri
tory in the last year, we expect that the rush of
long distance calls will be too great for all to
be handled promptly.
A full force of operators will be on duty and
every board in service. Every operator will do
her best to put calls through promptly, yet some
circuits at certain hours are hound to be loaded
Jf your call can’t be completed as fast as you
would like, we hope you’ll understand. It will
help us and you, too, if you don’t ask the operator
for reports on your call.
, Thanks and a very merry Christmas.
