Sure Defense Work

Radio and press continue to keep stirring pictures of defense work before public thought. Now we are urged to meet further defense needs, cheered by heartening accomplishments. More and more men and women are enlisting in defense industries; more and more citizens, both leaders and men in the street, are turning their attention to ways of furthering the cause of freedom.

One well-known news commentator has recommended the reading of the Bible for an understanding of how to win the war. Our President, other statesmen, and some military leaders are urging prayer as a helpful contribution to a righteous victory; and Christian clergymen everywhere are counseling their followers to turn earnestly and expectantly to God in this time of the world's need. All these are right steps, not to be minimized. Yet with all that is being said and written about the part each of us should play in this all-out conflict, still too little thought is being directed to the spiritual defense work which must guide the planning, support the production, and direct the use of supplies and armaments if the United Nations are to wage victorious warfare.
