Page 8 Pastoral Prayer -December 9th Father, grant us steadfast confidence and unfaltering fortitude in these challeng- ing hours of national uncertainty as our statesmen and elected representatives enter into the valley of decision. From the depths of our hearts we pray that they may secure the safety of the fifty hostages in Iran. We pray for all mankind, even as the breach between some of us grows broader day by day... Help us to remember that even those who raise their angry shouts against us are still our fellow man and they children. They were once our friends, and in days to come we must help them to be- come our friends again. Let us not forget that our complacent selfishness, our blindness to some of the policy mistakes of our leaders, our unwil- lingness to continueour interest in our leaders once we have elected them, have helped to bring us to this hour. Forgive us our failures, and teach us to forgive those whom by force of circumstance we may have to move against with arms... Save us from bitterness or hatred and the vindic- tive spirit of revenge. If it be possible, bring the fifty Ameri- cans safely through the valley of the shad- ow of death and return them to their" homes with thankful hearts... If it needs must be that they continue to suffer may they be strengthened through the realiza- tion that their temporal and spiritual edu- cation has gifted them with prepared minds equal to any crisis.., if death a- waits them, nerve them to meet it with courage and undefeated hearts. Especially, in this advent season, and in preparation for whatever day may dawn upon us, open our minds to a deep- er understanding of the teaching and example of Jesus Christ.

Clayton Brooks Hale at the Perry Congregational Church, December 9th. ttartrrrnatn mitP Milltown Blvd St Stephen N B IDE,L FOR THE FISHERMAN, I LUMBERMAN - SPORTSMAN any kind of work.
