November, 1972
1972 HFP, Volume 4 Number 11

US secretary of state Henry Kissinger reached a tentative peace agreement with North Vietnam in Paris, but president Richard Nixon secretly decided to keep the war going for several more months in order to insure his re-election in November. A series of violent racial confrontations broke out on the US aircraft carrier Kitty Hawk, injuring both white and black Navy personnel. David Bowie was traveling the U.S. in his first "Ziggy Stardust in America" tour.

This issue contained an exciting review of the recent Jesus People Gathering, which included speakers, fellowship, music, seminars, a beach baptism, a Jesus festival of music, and a final long night of street witnessing and HFP distribution on New Year's eve and the next morning at the Tournament of Roses parade in Pasadena. The waters off Will Rogers State Beach was chilly, but that didn't stop a number of brave brothers and sisters from coming forward to be baptized in Jesus' name.

The music festival early on New Years' eve ended with a communion service and singing the chorus "We Are One in the Spirit", then spreading out on Pasadena's Colorado Boulevard where a million and a half people lined the parade route on that cold night waiting for the festivities the following morning. Many of those people were given a Hollywood Free Paper by smiling Jesus People who told them, "Jesus loves you."

The photo at right shows three young Jesus People talking and sharing an intimate moment of quiet fellowship at a Jesus festival in Soul's Harbor, MN. The cartoon shown at lower right shouted this issue's theme of Love, Love, Love.
