CHURCH continued from page C3 The freedom that Jesus makes possible is freedom from bondage of evil worldly lusts that the devil uses to trap us and take us to hell with him. Jesus provides freedom for us to choose his better more satisfying way of living that will lead to a home with him in heaven forever, but he will not force us to accept it. That's a fantastic offer! Why would anyone opt out of that? But sadly, some still do. Like the old man in Life magazine, most people become so comfortable and entangled in the deadly joys that Satan provides, that they would rather reject the pardon and continue to live as they please while on their way to hell. That's sad. We invite you to visit us on Lover' s Lane and join us as we joyfully thank God for Jesus who provides us our pardons. Mehan Union Church Did springtime put new life in your step?

Ken Harder The most sacred time of our Church year is upon us. Today and on Good Friday we listen to the very heart of the Gospel. the Passion Narrative. All other passages from Scripture are utterly dependent upon the Passion Narratives for their meaning. All other teachings and actions of Jesus, no matter how inspiring, are meaning- less without the Passion. The Passion of Jesus is not to evoke an emotional response of guilt from the listener, rather it is to bring us to an ever deeper awareness of God's love for us. the awful effect of sin and inflame within us a response of love for God. The Passion is also a model for our own lives. Who hasn't felt injustice at times? Who hasn't endured the jealousy of others or the loneliness of condemnation? Who hasn't endured miseries that don't seem to end. Jesus accepted his passion so that he might show us what to do with our own. Through every step of his passion, Jesus patiently endured the worst of torments because He knew something far greater than the hurts of this world awaited him. If justice is only available in this world, then we would be right to seek vengeance or demand better treatment. As Christians, our firm belief is that our real justice comes at the end of this life, as it did for Jesus. Our constant task is to remember that so that no matter what happens to us, good or bad, there may always be a peace about us, a peace that will invite others. During this most sacred week. I urge you to spend more time each day in prayer: whether it be in quiet contempla- An easy choice. EWm brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and fractures, and much more.

But along the way as I grew up, I found other valiant role models who seemed to be worthy of emulation in some way. A former violin player was one of those. My Dad took Mom and me to every high school football game that our local team played, and in my early years. I pretended to direct our band during the games. The band director told my folks that, if they would let me be their mascot, he would teach me to play all of the instruments in the band. and I could play for him right through high school. For some reason, my folks refused, and it's prob- ably just as well because, even after many lessons, I never even learned to playa guitar. I've always enjoyed singing, and. I sang in our high school choir, but I don't seem to have a knack for musical instruments. Instead. after once running through a whole team that could not tackle me. I wound up becoming a pretty good athlete and had some success at that. As a teenagers, Joey Barrow and I had some things in common. Joey's mother gave him violin lessons and hoped that. some day, he would make a name for him- self playing it. My rowdy football teammates could never understand why I wanted to sing in our choir, and at 18. Joey's schoolmates called him a sissy for not participating with them in more "manly" pursuits. But, after awhile, Joey got fed up, and when a tough kid taunted him once too often, Joey smashed his violin over his head. But. even that impulsive reaction evoked more laughter from his schoolmates. Finally a big strong friend named Thurston decided to do something about it. He took Joey to a gym where he worked out and persuaded him to rent a locker with the 50 cents his mom had given him for violin les- sons. Thurston, who was already a Detroit Golden Gloves Boxing Champion, got Joey to spar with him in the gym's boxing ring, and Joey beat the daylights out of him. Joey was hooked, and he began to take boxing lessons with the money his mother gave him for violin lessons. After that, Thuston McKinney disappeared from the scene, but Joey began to box, and he changed his last name so his mom wouldn't find our what he was doing. Just 5.years later, at the age of 23, nearly everyone in the world knew his new name. It was Joe Louis. the heavy- weight boxing champion of the world who the whole world nicknamed, the Brown Bomber. tion of the passion, reading of Scripture or taking simple moments out of your day to seek the presence of God. I assure you that you will be happy for any effort you make. The three services of the Triduum, Holy Thursday Mass, Good Friday commemoration and the Easter Vigil are deeply moving events and I invite you to attend. A wonderful devotion of Thursday is to spend some time in the evening, up to midnight, in silent adoration before the Blessed Sacrament. There is a venerable tradition of going to different Catholic Churches to pray for a while. Both St. John and St. Francis are open until midnight. May the blessing of our lord Jesus Christ. who delivered himself into the hands of evil men for our sake. bless you abundantly as you recall his passion and the love he bore us. SURVIVOR Continued from Page C2 seems that Alicia might be helpful in getting her "home girls" together for a big boy blindside. Now that Jonas is gone, I'd like to see The Great Big Bird of Fate lay a Big Egg Blind-side in the guy's nest. It might enliven this game a bit. However, let me perfectly clear. I'm wild about little Lief! He's a very tough competitor and a great cheerleader. I want him on my team! Can't wait to meet his wife at the live finale. I'm also wild about Sabrina. Kudo's to John Kirfhoffer for more interesting chal- lenges. Love the the Disc and Ball challenge! While TIKIANO as ONE TRIBE is a joke, I must admit that they painted the most beautiful flag of all seasons. Finally, can anyone believe that there are human being who have "gone under the knife" with Tarzan as their surgeon. Scary thought!!!!
