The women will serve refreshments after the annual Christmas program to be held December 15 at 7 p.m. The meeting was turned over to Gayla Jones, who pre- sented the program: "Herodias: The FruR of Bitterness." The Scripture was from Mark 6:14-29. The story revolves around a woman named Herodias, who was first married to Phillip, but left him to marry King Herod. John the Baptist, a fearless and righteous servant of God, publicly condemned her behavior. For this, John was arrested and put in prison. Herodiaa continued to nurse a grudge against John the Baptist. She wanted to have him killed, but was unable to do so because Herod feared and protected John. Finally, the opportune time came when Herod held a birthday banquet for himself. All of the high officials of Galilee were in attendance. Herodias' daughter danced at the banquet. This so pleased Herod that he told the girl, "Whatever you ask I will give you...up to half of my kingdom." Herodias told her daugh- ter to ask for "the head of John the Baptist." The daughter then told Herod, "I want you to give me right now the head of John the Baptist on a platter." Herod had backed himself into a corner and had no alternative but to fulfill her request. Because of Herodias' grudge, Jolm the Baptist was beheaded. As Christians we should pray to God for alternatives to holding a grudge..: i " ",: ". President Wood adjourned the meeting. Jones served refreshments to the group. Announcement was made that the next meeting will be held at the home of Reverend Dane and Marry Wagner of Moreland on December 9th.
