would happen if Christ was born
again?" The play takes' place in
South Africa where Christ, reborn,
is rejected by everyone, the mili-
tary, government, clergy and com-
mon man.

point out that there is need for
further searching in order to dis-
cover the position of Christ and
religious thinking, and the relation
between religious thinking and
everyday life.

C p.m. today at Douglas Memorial
Chapel and will be followed by an
open house at the Congregational
