Whither Australia. Place of God in Life. THE MODERN TREND. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 6 April 1948

Whither Australia? ^1 Place of God in Life THE MODERN TREND {By 'Quo Yadis') The Easter Festival, which embodies .such hopes for every Christian, is now over, and looking back it is' interesting, J if perhaps in many cases tragic, to visualise how that Easter has been spent. There were four days of holi day, and two of those days — Good | Friday and Easter Sunday — have been set apart for nearly two thousand years by the church as days of great importance in the Christian year — and surely so, for they mark events that have everlasting significance. Yet as one listened in to the radio was it of ' crowded churches that one heard or 1 was it rather of crowded beaches and .sports grounds?

Those holi days given us first by the church — with U»e change of one letter — as Holy Days, surely even iu our thoughtlessness we must sometimes remember we owe directly to Christ. Yet in many cases' Christ is quite left out of plans made...
