The 3ournal Church F age Ronai O.Weathers Pastor Of The Methodist Church It is not long until Christmas-- the time of year that reminds us of good times, happiness, joy, peace and fellowship. Christ- mas is an optimistic time of year; a time when families are reunited and celebrate Christ- mas together; a time when child ren live in great excitement. It is a joyous season. Yet when we look at our world today and see what is happening, there is not much about which to be cheerful and happy. Man is divided against man Even in out" country we find division. The negro and the white are continually express- ing 'the division that exists be- tween them. A division we had not dreamed was so emotionally deep. We see clearly a division between the youth and adult. The college students demanding one thing and the adults anoth- er. We seem never able to get together. We are also divided in the issue of the Veitnam war. One side says we should not be there, while the other side says we are in the right. There is also the division between the poor and rich. The rich contin- ue to get richer and the poor continue to get poorer. These are only a few things that are happening in our own country that continue to divide man from man. And if we look at the world we find nearly the same thing happening as we find here in America. Black and white are against each other; wars continue to divide: the rich and poor are at each others throat; the youth and adults have their difficul- ties. When one looks at the world in which we happen to be living, there is little to be hap- py and joyous about. Oh, of course there are many great thhgs happening in our world that do bring joy and hap- piness, but there is too much of that which brings despair, hatre and division. Yet these divisions have been with man- kind in every age and century. In the time of the Hebrews, Greeks, Romans and every other are, man has remained divided against man. Wars have always been with us; nations and races have continually been divided; the rich and poor have repeatedly had conflicts. But knowing this should not make us feel justified by how we act today. Knowing that we basic- ally live in the same kind of world that existed 2000 year ago is no comfort. Knowing that this is nearly the same kind of world into which Jesus was born is humiliating to the Christian. Why is man still divided a- gainst man? Why hasn't Christ- ianity been more of an influence upon the world and its behav- ior? Mlybe it is because we really haven't quite accepted tie incarnation -- that God was in Christ reconciling the world, Christ did come some 2000 )'ears ago, but maybe we really haven't let him come into us. We say Christ is the hope of the world, and that he came bring- ing peace and good will. But has he really come to man yet? Have we actually let hime come to us? Christmas is the time of year we celebrate the coming or birth of Jesus Christ. May this Christ- mas be a time that we truly see the significance of his coming. And may we truly let him come into us that we may have "peace on earth good will to men."
