Transcript -The Chi Rho The Greek letters Chi and Rho (say: koi—row} are the first two letters of the name of Christ as it is written in the Greek language, XPI2TOS. When the two letters are put together to form a monogram, they become a symbol which reminds us of Christ. It is an abbreviated way of writing the name of Christ. It is something like writing our own initials instead of writing out our full name. Christians all through the ages have used this monogram to show that they believe in Christ. It is found as early as the second century in inscriptions in the catacombs, and it has been in use ever since that time. There are several ways that the monogram of the name of Christ.can be written. Only the two most popular ways are shown here. The Chi Rho symbol is often used on the walls in parish churches. Whether it is on the wall, a vestment, or anything else, it means that this place or this thing is marked with the name of Christ and belongs to Him. The Alpha Omega The first letter of the Greek alphabet is called Alpha, and the last letter, Omega. These two letters used singly or put together to form a monogram remind us of God who is First because there is no God before Him, and Last because there is no God after Him. God Himself said: "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end, who is and who was and who is coming, the Almighty." (Apoc. 1:18] These two letters are a symbol of Christ in whom creation began and by whom it will end. In early Christian symbolism, the Alpha and the Omega were placed on each side of the cross. The idea embodied in this'sym- bohis expressed in the Apocalypse: "I anrihe first and the last and the Living One. I was dead, and behold, I am living evermore." (Apoc. 1:18) Sometimes the two letters were put within the halo around the head of Christ. Often, in our own day, it will be found carved on the front of the altar in our churches. Used in any of I these ways, the symbol suggests the truth that God is ■ without beginning and without end. X CHI P{ RHO Sj.iK .

CHURCH ETIQUETTE What would you think of a church where people whisper&a and giggled throughout the service? Would you think that the people were serious about worshipping God? I doubt that you would. Yet every Sunday I see and hear things disturbing the service. Not everyine is guilty of being a distraction. Most'people Know how to conduct themselves during a servic( For those- who are simply not aware of good church etiquette, I have listed some guidelines to follow in order to provide for concentration on God. The prelude is not a social hour. It is a time of quiet meditation and preparation for worship. Prayers are a time set aside for you to telk....with God....and no one else. Ihe sermon ia a time set aside for the pastor to talk to you about God...rather than a time for you to find out about your neighbor's cocial activities the night before. The offering is a time of giving....and this includes your attention. Meditation is a time for you to think with God. Communion is a tine for your special communion with God, and if you're doing just that, there shouldn't be any time tpv communication with someone else. It is all so very simple. People go to church to talk with God. The church provides a social hour after services for people to talk"with each other. Let us all remember, we are hete to v-jorshi God andrJlet us do just that in a reverent manner and with a consciousness for others^^ God will love you for it I (The Palm Leaflet, ifov.78..Earl Miller) ooaxwooxiooooooooooo^ Think It Over God made the sun—it five*.
