RADIO PROGRAM No. 49 - The Christian Command to Love

HOST: Have you ever wondered what the world would be like if for just one hour everybody set aside grudges and hates, self-pity and bitterness, feelings of envy and suspicion—all the things that would separate person from person, nation from nation—and for that one hour simply let perfect love dominate his thoughts and actions?

Lewis Mumford, in his book "The Human Prospect," writes, "Everyone realizes, at least in words, that only through a vast increase of effective love can the mischievous hostilities that now undermine our civilization be overcome." He goes on to say, "The means are plain enough but the method of application is lacking." [Publishers, Beacon Press, Boston, 1955. Copyright, 1955, by Lewis Mumford.]

Surely everybody would agree that more love is the greatest need in today's world. The challenge is, What about "the method of application" which, Mr. Mumford says, "is lacking"?
