CHRISTMAS 1962

"Glory to God in the highest, and

i

I On-earth peace, good will toward men"

The angels which proclaimed Christ's >irth almost 2,000 years ago also revealed something of an eternal peace provided for those who continue in His ministry today.
An examination of history reveals that i the angels could not have been thinking of world peace in the sense that there'would be neither wars nor rumors of wars among nations. Christ Himself .foretold--thehostility which was to persist in the years ahead, but as He prepare^ to leave His disciples, He promised, "My peace I give unto you; not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."
Despite the open conflict among nations, Christ still provides an inward peace for the faithful among men. This, no doubt, is the peace about which the angels sang on the first Christmas.
This is a time of year not only for sharing with friends and family the joys of the season, but it should also be a period for recalling the promises made by the angels.
Only through the sharing of His only Son could God bridge the gap between man and his Creator. Yet, unless we accept Christ's love and pursue His ideals and principles can we expect to enjoy the fullness of this promise of peace.
While the peace on earth about which the angels sang has not prevented international conflict, it does provide something eternal for the individual. This peace Christ gives us is enhanced through the experience of sharing its ideals and rewards with all mankind.
The experience of sharing is a dominant force among Berry stu dents. Although it is our purpose to convey this experience to our friends throughout the year, Christmas does provide a most appropriate background for such expressions to you who share our interests.
It is our prayer that during the coming new year the peace proclaim ed at Christmas will prevail in your lives at all times; and that world order may be restored through the combined efforts of individuals like yourselves who believe that self is best satisfied by having an in terest in the needs of others.

John R. Bertrand President

Dear Friends of Berry:
This opportunity to send greetings to our friends makes Christmas brighter and happier for all of us at Berry. We wish we might tell you, face to face, how much you have encouraged and inspired us this year and all through the years.
The building of Berry from a "Cabin to a College" is a miracle that has been accomplished through your help and that of others like you. Thousands of young people have found themselves here at Berry because of you.
So, as we see again the glow of the Christmas candles, hear the youthful voices of students in merry greetings, carols, scriptures and prayers, we are mindful of friends and the greatness of God.
As we approach Christmas in this modern age of space travel, of "men running to and fro," of a world torn with strife and greed, we are more grateful than ever for the promise of Peace within. We remind ourselves of the Christ Child's lowly birth in the manger, because there was no room in the inn. We pray that we may all find room for Him in our hearts and thereby know the true meaning of Christmas.
May God bless you and yours at this Christmastide and whatever the need may be, may each one know that "His grace is sufficient."
Thank you for your help and inspiration for our work with these young people. My warm personal regards and best wishes for a new year filled with blessings and with opportunities for continued service.
Faithfully yours,

Inez Henry Assistant to the President
