first Christmas and that spirit is
carried out today according, to
what each individual wants to
make of it. .
The greatest joy of the day
comes to those who freely remem
ber others. " 'Tis mere blessed
to give than to receive" and it
may well be added "It is more
fun,, too.". 'Gifts, yes but not so
much for the. gift itself as for the
sentiment back of the giving.
There- ties the spirit of love, good
fellowship, of peace and good will.
At this season of the year the
heart of man is at its best. It
is filled with the spirit of service
for others, of the love for giving
and doing,, of a great desire to
bring happiness and joy Into the
lives of others. Hatred, fear,
doubt and selfishness have been
cast out and man knows real
pleasure. So today let us away
with all strife and enjoy and abide
by the song of the Heavenly
"tJlorjr to God in the Highest
And on earth peace anions men in wuom
he is well pleased."
Today the earth is wrapped
about by a beautiful mantle of
peace and good will. Enfolding
the entire world it binds men
closer together in a brotherhood
of love and service. Its warming
influence fills the hearts and souls
of men. It leads all into paths
of real happiness and joy. It suf
fuses the entire land, . this holy
peace about which the angels sang
on the far off Judean hills. It
has echoed and re-echoed through
each, passing year and today is as
stirring and vivid as on that first
- Peace and good will may they
continue not for an hour, or for
a day, or for a year but for all
time to come. .
And so 'tis Christmas- awake
and thrill response to the joy of
service and the joy of living. Aj
Merry Christmas to each of you
and may your lives be filled with
the real peace of Christmas time.
