Martino said the conflict has led to the collapse of the social fabric. l'he absence.., of true and free political exchange undermines the legitimacy of authority and reduces governance to a ruthless exercise of power," he said. The breakdown of families and the hardening of children's hearts is an- other result of the conflict, he said. "In so many places, the laughing and .playing of children has been stifled by bursts of gunfire and the thudding of tear-gas canisters," he said. Another speaker, Jewish author Mark Ellis, said the Jewish-Christian dialogue is "based on lies" and has inhibited prospects for peace in the Middle East.

RENTALS & SALES Vincent Wren Margaret Hzer you have chosen the less stressful ap- proach to the holidays. If they are to the left, a stressful season is in your future. Changing your attitude and actions can reduce your stress, but you should do it slowly and with a plan. Use your imagination and try this four-point way to happy and transforming holidays. 1. State the problem or challenge. 2. List the "risks" that come to mind. 3. For each "risk" think of a likely "gain." 4. Think about the "gains" and try new actions and attitudes to solve your problem or challenge. Example challenge: I must repeat tradition by hosting a meal for 22 family members. I feel joyless and exhausted by the time everyone arrives. Risks (~)vs. Gains (~') Not enough time Trying new ideas may help me manage my time better. Not enough money Find out what is actually in the pantry and back of the freezer that can be used Loss of sanity It is a temporary loss but, a change in attitude could help me keep my joy. Actions and Attitudes: Decide you will enjoy the get-together because the meal will be a shared experience for all. Have each family bring their favorite dish and/or assign them a task (set table, bring flowers, entertain children, clean- up, etc.). Tell yourself, "Relax, God's in charge."

The dialogue could be more properly described as Jewish-Christian "solidar- ity," he said, in which Christians are afraid to raise honest questions about Israeli behavior in the West Bank. On the Jewish side, he said, are those "in- terested in nothing more than pre- serving their status as victims." Roller Funeral Home H Nay 5 N. & Walker Rd.
