J& Lenten 1^ Meditation The North Canton Mfinisteriai Association, which represents lall major Christian denomination^ wi&i churches in our community, has again very graciously consented to supply weekly meditation during tlhese weeks of the Lenten period 'leadinfg to Easter Sunday, April 15. Five From Hoover National Merit Scholarship Finalists Rev. Irwin E. Jennings, pastor of Faith United Methodist Church, has presented this week's Lenten Meditation entitled "Thinking On Death." "One of the most popular classes offered at Faith Church in recent years has been one dealing with "Death and Dying." Arewe getting too morbid? I think not. Interest in the subject of death and dyingindicates a healthy concern for a subject we have tended to avoid until it hit us. "Once John Wesley came to a town, gathered a congregation about himandbe- gan to preach. Aftersever- al minutes, hesaw that persons were drowsy and inattentive. He.was preaching on a theme that he loved: salvation by grace through faith. Buthesensed that he could not Speak on such a topic to an una- wakened people. Heswitch- ed to the text "It is appointed unto men once to die." (Hebrews 9:27 KJV) "This incident in the life of Wesley and our contemporary interest indeath and dying remind us that the serious contemplation of death can point us toward life and gratutude for the gift of life. These are reminders we need during Lent when the traditional ritual for Ash Wednesday has been for the priest to put ashes upon the foreheads of worshipers and to remind them they will die. 'Some would turn from such reality saying, "Let us not be morbid." But it is tragic to repress thinking on this ultimate reality. All of us have known persons who when told they had only a short time to live have responded with great courage, and have made their last days a powerful witness to their faith. "During Lent, let us think on death - our death. The apostle Paul reminds us to do that, but all our thinking about this topic must have a final focus: Death is swallowed up in victory through the supreme fact of theRe- surrection. Christ has pioneered the way to life here and hereafter. Knowing this, we can, in the words of Paul, "be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord" and we may give thanks to God, "who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."
