k AN EASTER MESSAGE.
By Bishop Wm. P. Remington.
Christmas and Easter, the two
great festivals of the Christian
church, are remembered by thousands
of people in this country who rarely
if ever go to church at any other
time. Christmas speaks to us of the
giving of God's life to humanity
through the coming of His Son. Eas
ter assured us that the life so given
glows and continues and finds per
fection in immortality. Our modern
age has grown so accustomed to tak
ing things for granted, that we are
in danger of losing the significance
of some of our great days and the
customs and ceremonies which sur
round them. Thus, the Fourth of July
comes to mean little hut fireworks
and big noise. Memorial Day a par
ade of the Civil War veterans, and
Armistice Day another one of the
World War veterans. Christmas we
associate with presents, a turkey, and
a house all decorated with beautiful
greens. Easter, the great spring fes
tival, reminds us of the glory of the
returning spring with its flowers and
birds and all the joy of nature re
newing itself. Coupled with all these
Christian and national festivals and
holidays is the ever present motive
of commerce, to capitalize th& cele
bration in behalf of a greater sale of
goods. If the churches failed to keep
Christmas and Easter, the merchant
would still keep them alive. Let us
not blame the merchant, but also let
us not permit him to side-track the
message which our Christian and na
tional holidays and festivals have for
every one. If we forget the real
meaning of Christmas and Easter,
the feasts will be hollow and tawdry,
laughter and joy a mere mockery,
and in the end, what was intended by
God will be spoiled by man's selfish
ness and carelessness.
Just what does Easter convey to
you? Suppose it had never happened,
think for one moment as to what your
life would mean if Jesus never rose
from the dead, but His mortal life
ended in failure on a cross. Despair,
the futility of all things, would come
to you, of all men you would be most
miserable, death would remain the
victor, and your noblest dreams and
aspirations would vanish into thin
dust. Easter is more than the assur
ance of the life to come, it explains
and interprets the life that now is,
It speaks of change and progress, of
God and His world working out His
good purpose to recreate all things
in accord with His Divine plan. Every
year we watch the miracle of spring.
"There is no death! The stars go
To rise upon some other shore
And bright in heaven's jeweled crown
They shine for evermore.
Uiere is no death The dust we tread!
Shall change beneath the summer
To golden grain or mellow fruit
Or rainbow tinted flowers.
And ever near us, though unseen,
The dear immortal spirits tread.
For all the boundless universe
Is life there are no dead!"
It is no wonder that God's assur
ance of immortality through the Res
urrection of His Son, is so closely
identified with the mriacle of spring.
He has made a parable of this earth
nature is always renewing itself. The
poppies of Flanders field soon re
clothe the ground over which men
fought and bled and died, and dust
leaps into life again and beauty is
given for ashes.
So it is with man, the law of his
being is not death but life, not stand
ing still but advancing, not resting
content with things as they are but
building out of the dust of his fallen
house a new home in the skies. Fhy
siologists tell us that with every sev
en years there is complete change of
every corpuscle of blood, every bit of
bone fibre, of brain stuff and nerve
tissue. And yet we keep on building
up after the same pattern, the boy is
father to the man. What is the cen
ter of mystery in us which changes
the actual physical structure and yet
rebuilds it after a central plan? In
r.ature we call this mystery species,
type, seed; in man we call it person
ality. The difference is obvious; a
tree, a flower, an animal has no pow
er within itself to change, except
through the influence of environment.
Man changes his own surroundings,
he wills, chooses, and modifies, and
therefore he is a person. The qual
ity of life which man has is of a
higher order. That higher order is
creative, it thinks, plans, builds new
things, and so it is part of the Divine
Creator of. all. Man is partner with
God in productive creation. Easter
is the assurance of this partnership
with God, and the good news that the
life and progress of the person con
tinues after the dissolution of the
body. The central force of man's
creative activity at last finds itself in
the source of all creation. Jesus rose
from the dead to give use evidence
of the indestructibility of the spir
itual in man. Through Him we
achieve eternity. Come to Him, wor
ship Him, find your life in Him, and
you w-ill know the hope of immortal
ity and the joy of fullness of living
My dear friends in Eastern Oregon,
I wish you a happy Easter. May life
be renewed for you and in you. Let
no pain nor srorow nor failure nor
disappointment rob you of the ulti
mate victory of life over death. Let
not the eager pursuit of wealth or
pleasure take from you the hope of
eternity, by satisfying you with
things, so that you forget your Di
vine origin and destiny.
