flere at the Church "f the Open Door (Los Angeles) \A'e are preparing to begin the program for the fourth time in fourteen vears. Ind.) IN THIS ISSUE The Saint Anthony Bay Brethren Church 7 ( Bill Burk I What Is the James Gribble Memorial High School? There is e\'ery reason to believe that increasing thousands will accept Christ during this new vear. If there is the same dedication and sacrifice in the sending as in the going, and the same willing surrender to the will of God, there can be the same blessing in the sending as in the going. There may be bombs, fallout, carnage, death, separation, and heartache beyond description in this new vear. "The coming of the Lord draweth nigh." I do not know when He will come, but 1 know He will come. Multitudes, multitudes, and more multitudes have ne\'er heard of the first coming of lesus Christ and of His wonderful plan of salvation. We have had a wonderful trip thus far and the Lord has been answering pra\ers for guidance and safety.

We love the opportunities but so often shun the responsibilities. The old vear had so manv failures, times when we failed to measure up to our responsibilities. Probably there will be manv of them, but it is our privi- lege to limit or pre\-ent them as, in the words of the .-^postle Paul, we "bu\ up our opportunities." New Babes in Christ There were man\' such babes last vear.
God wants all the old men in sin to become new men in Christ Jesus. Thev will ne^-er know about it unless thev are told.
This results from the experience of being born again bv the power of the Holv Spirit.
God wants everv one of His children to be done with the old, and to recei\'e with ]n\ the new.
Will we manifest the characteristics of the new man in Christ Jesus, or will we discontentedlv continue to hold on to the old habits, the old sins, the old selfishnesses, the old dislikes, the old faithlessness.
