Read James 2:14-26
"The glory which thou hast
given me I have given to them,
that they may be one even as
we are one." (John 17:22.RSV.)
In southern Europe, I saw
some Roman architectural struc-
tures, among them the familiar
An interesting story is told of
one such aqueduct built in the
year 109 at Segovia, Spain. For
eighteen centuries it carried cool
water from the mountains to the
thirsty city. Then modern pipe-
lines were laid, and the old aque-
duct was no longer used. Almost
immediately it began to fall
apart. The dry mortar crumbled,
stones loosened and began to fall.
A few years of idleness ruined
what eighteen centuries of ser-
j vice hr.,1 not destroyed.
The church is the aqueduct for
the spirit of Christ. Is its tre-
j tnendous power for good to be
I sapped and destroyed by care-
j less neglect? The servant with
one talent was denounced not be-
cause he had stolen it, or gam-
bled it, or misappropriated it,
but, because he had done noth-
ing with it.
PRAYER: Our Father, help us
to keep open the channels of
spiritual power by devout living
and faithfulness to The church
Strengthen us to serve the church
of our Lord Jesus Christ and to
pray, as He taught us, "Our Fa-
ther who art in heaven. . .

Court asking that the election be
called. If called, it is anticipacd

The election will cover t w o
important areas — the establish-
ment of a Collin County Junior
College and the election of seven
men from Collin County to serve

In the event the election car-
ries, it will then be the resonsi-
bility of the seven trustees to de-
cide the location of the college
and then to call an election to
vote sufficient bonds to finance
the construction and operation.
News media have been asked
to stress the importance of the
fact that the location of the pro-!
posed college, if passed, is un-
determined at this time and that
the full responsibility for same
is, by law, granted to the seven
