DECEMBER 1961

After the Berry Carol Service
Out in the crisp cold wintry air There stand hundreds of people. But not a single sound is heard Except that from the steeple.
The brass quartette peals carols out And as the tones are dying From off a roof top not far off More horns are heard replying.
The lights are out; the world is still Except for music bringing A message ever old and new To which the world keeps clinging.
A night of pure simplicity, Of sacred celebration, That grows for many hearts into A night of consecration.
--Evelyn Hoge Pendley

CHRISTMAS 1961
"Joy to the world, the Lord is come! Let earth receive her King."
Through the years these words of praise and acclamation have resounded at Christmastime reminding us that throughout life our burdens are lightened by the One whose birth we are about to com memorate.
Here at Berry the spirit of the season continues undaunted by the totalitarian threats against all that is good, not because such threats are nonexistent, but because the Christ of Christmas has promised, "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."
Despite whatever fears have been inflicted during the past year, Christ's promise remains with us as the firm foundation on which we may build for better citizenship in His Kingdom here on earth and in eternity.
Because of you, whose interests have been sustaining in our ministry, we trust Christlike endeavors greatly exceed whatever success may have been achieved by the forces of evil. Our hymns of praise this Christmas are only outward expressions of an inward appreciation for the opportunities that have been ours in following the example of Christ, "Not to be ministered unto, but to minister."
To you, friends of Berry, we extend an invitation to join with us this Christmas in praising Him who was and is now the Prince of Peace.
In behalf of the students, faculty and staff of Berry College and the Mount Berry School for Boys, I extend to you the warmest of Christmas greetings, and in Christ's name, a glorious New Year.
John R. Bertrand President The Berry Schools

"For God So Loved The World That He Gave His Only Begotten Son .
Dear Friends,
One of the greatest joys of Christmas is the joy of sending good wishes, and of renewing our invitation to you to visit The Berry Schools.
You are in our thoughts often during the year and especially at the Christmas season. Good wishes are good thoughts, expressions of faith, of love and of good will. Just how far good wishes can go, only God can tell!
The Berry Schools are evidence of your good wishes, your faith and your good will. My long years of association with Berry, the boys and girls and with you have deepened the meaning of Christmas for me.
I seem to miss Martha Berry more at Christmas than at any other time during the year. She loved hearing the boys and girls sing the carols, and she looked forward to the messages of good will from our friends. She was genuinely thrilled with the glow of the Christmas candles, the light in the faces of the little children. She knew the true meaning of the words found in John 3:16. Her life was symbolic of light.
So today, even though there is much darkness in our world, we greet you in the name of Him who is " The Light of the World," and we wish for you and your dear ones the blessings of Christmas.
Faithfully yours,

Inez Henry
