This happened in 1970 and 1971 but the good news is people within these churches have formed pro-life groups. We can and should do the same regardless of what our churches position is. Just because your denomination is pro-life isn't going to help save a life if no one speaks up or helps in some way to change the law. Start a pro-life committee in your church. Determination and polite persistence can make all the difference between success and failure.

Wilfred C. Hansen PASTOR AT LARGE "For whoever would save his life will lose it, and whoever l his life for my sake will find it." Matthew W. Clark Williams was Pastor of Ortonville's Congregational UCC from 1955 through 1963. He was a minister, much loved by his congregation and the larger as well. What is not generally known is that he was a poet. ry was of great variety, reflecting a broad view of life. This week I came across a couple of his verses which 1 to pass along to you. The first piece is a lovely and unique looking at Big Stone Lake. Clearly he loved beautiful Big Stone and the surrounding hills as we do. Reflect on: BIG STONE LAKE IN JANUARY The lake so turbulent in Autumn's gale, Lies calm and silent under Winter's sun. It's tossing billows chained by gleaming ice, Which has for a brief season won. Before too long the warm ascending sun Will free the waters from that cold embrace; Surrounding snow-clad hills will turn to green, And rippling waves will dance on Big Stone's face. Dr. Williams' understanding of the Gospel and Christian reflected in BLESSINGS: Do you always pray for a blessing, Or str!ve a blessing to be? There s all the difference in the world Between, getting andgiving you see. And you 11 usually find he s blessed the most Who tries a blessing to give; For the more you give the more you have, That s a blessed way to live.

This happened in 1970 and 1971 but the good news is people within these churches have formed pro-life groups. We can and should do the same regardless of what our churches position is. Just because your denomination is pro-life isn't going to help save a life if no one speaks up or helps in some way to change the law. Start a pro-life committee in your church. Determination and polite persistence can make all the difference between success and failure.

Wilfred C. Hansen PASTOR AT LARGE "For whoever would save his life will lose it, and whoever l his life for my sake will find it." Matthew W. Clark Williams was Pastor of Ortonville's Congregational UCC from 1955 through 1963. He was a minister, much loved by his congregation and the larger as well. What is not generally known is that he was a poet. ry was of great variety, reflecting a broad view of life. This week I came across a couple of his verses which 1 to pass along to you. The first piece is a lovely and unique looking at Big Stone Lake. Clearly he loved beautiful Big Stone and the surrounding hills as we do. Reflect on: BIG STONE LAKE IN JANUARY The lake so turbulent in Autumn's gale, Lies calm and silent under Winter's sun. It's tossing billows chained by gleaming ice, Which has for a brief season won. Before too long the warm ascending sun Will free the waters from that cold embrace; Surrounding snow-clad hills will turn to green, And rippling waves will dance on Big Stone's face. Dr. Williams' understanding of the Gospel and Christian reflected in BLESSINGS: Do you always pray for a blessing, Or str!ve a blessing to be? There s all the difference in the world Between, getting andgiving you see. And you 11 usually find he s blessed the most Who tries a blessing to give; For the more you give the more you have, That s a blessed way to live.
