WO 0 How out of place that word "cheer" seems. Yet, the Good News is so good we ought to cheer and shout for joy. Christmas really is about receiving -- not giving. This Christmas, receive the best gift  Jesus  and be liberated from your burdens. You'll feel like cheering.

Ca Pal: 755-3111 Harlan Newspapers n, = In Hoc Anna Domini (In the year of the Lord) When Saul of Tarsus set out on his Journey to Damascus the whole of the known world lay tn bondage. There was one state, and it was Rome. There was one master for it all, and he was Tiberius Caesar. Everywhere there was ctvil order, for the arm of the Roman law was long. Everywhere there was stability, In gov- ernment and in society, for the centu- rions saw that it was so. But everywhere there was some- thing else, too. There was oppression - for those who were not the friends of Tiberius Caesar. There was the tax gatherer to take the grain from the fields and the flax from the spindle to feed the legions or to fill the hungry treasury from which divine Caesar gave largess to the people. There was the lmpressor to find recruits for the cir- cuses. There were executioners to quiet those whom the Emperor proscribed. What was a man for but to serve Caesar? There was the persecution of men who dared think differently, who heard strange voices or read strange manuscripts. There was enslavement of men whose tribes came not from Rome, disdain for those who did not have the familiar visage. And most of all, there was everywhere a contempt for human life. What, to the strong, was one man more or less in a crowded world? Then, of a sudden, there was a light In the world, and a man from Galilee saying, Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's and unto God the things that are Codes. And the voice from Galilee, which would defy Caesar, offered a new Kingdom in which each man could walk upright and bow to none but his God. Inasmuch as ye haue done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye haue done it unto me. And he sent this gospel of the Kingdom of Man into the uttermost ends of the earth. So the light ca-me Into the world and the men who lived In darkness were afraid, and they tried to lower a curtain so that many would still believe salva- tion lay with the leaders. I i But it came to pass for a while in divers places that the truth did, set man free, although the men of darkness were offended and they tried to put out the light. The voice said, Haste ye. Walk while you haue the light, lest darkness come upon you, for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth. Along the road to Damascus the light shone brightly. But afterwards Paul of Tarsus, too, was sore afraid. He feared that other Caesars, other prophets, might one day persuade men that man was nothing save a servant unto them, that men might yield up their birthright from God for pottage and walk no more in freedom. Then might It come to pass that darkness would settle again over the lands and there would be a burning of books and men would think only of what they should eat and what they should wear, and would give heed only to new Caesars and to false prophets. Then might it come to pass that men would not look upwards to see even a winter's star in the East, and, once more, there would be no light at all in the darkness. And so Paul, the apostle of the Son of Man, spoke to his brethren, the Galatians, the words he would have us remember afterwards in each of the years of his Lord: Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

Michael R. McLaughlin . . St. Mary's, Portsmouth The Lord spoke to Ohaz: Ask for a sign from the Lord, your God; let it be deep as the nether world, or high as the sky! But Ohaz answered, "I will not ask[ I will not tempt the Lord!" Then Isaiah said: Listen, O House of David! Is it not enough for you to weary people, must you also weary my God? Therefore the Lord himself will give you this sign" the virgin shall be with child, and bear a son, and shall name him Immanuel. Isaiah 7:10-14 New American Once again, this year, we are on the home stretch of Advent heading toward Christmas. For me, I've gone through this 34 times. I think we've all began to take it for granted. After all, Christmas comes every year and many of us have lived through more years than we want to count. This is, of course, very sad. There is nothing more important, short of Jesus' death and resurrection, than his birth. God looked and looked for something to save us. To turn humanity around and real- ized that there was nothing to fit the bill. Instead, He had to send somebody and He realized not just any somebody would do. GOd, like Hallmark, cared enough to send the very best, His Son. It really hurts me deeply that in our worry and strug- gle to give the best gifts, we forget it's already been given. Isaiah words to Ohaz could well be said to us "Is it not enough for you to weary people, must you also wearying my GOd." It seems to me we need to get our acts together. Unless we want Jesus to become more and more out of place on His own birthday, we need to take the time this week to pray and really prepare for His coming. The fact is, the only gift worth giving is, of course, as always, ourselves. Too often, Christmas preparation seems to be about how can we do the most to- gether and share the least. I think office parties are great, but not at the expense of family gatherings (or families them- selves). Christmas preparation needs more conversations with people we really care about. Included in that list should always be God and ourselves. Let's take the time to talk with God and time to find peace in ourselves this week. In such a way our celebration of Christmas will have God squarely at it's center and celebrate its true meaning. God is with us (that's what Immanuel means). In that way, Christmas is not just a season, but a way of life - following the true way Jesus Christ in all the wonder He has given Him and us. Who could weary over that?
