AT MAKAWAO UNION
Last Sunday the Rev. A. Craig
Bowdish centered the attention of his
congregation on Jesus' parable that
the Kingdom of God is like leaven or
east which is put into dough, making
light and palatable. Jesus' truth
nd spirit was numerically small
hen it entered into the life and
ferment of that time. By the time
of Luther this leaven had so
spread that the works of Michael
Angclo and Raphael were greatly in
fluenced by it. One of the great
thoughts of Columbus was to carry
the Gospel to peoples who did not
know of Christ.
Several editions of the Bible were
among the first products of the newly
invented printing by movable types.
Today the Great War is not because
t Christianity, but in spite of it. Mis-
ions ,the Red Cross, the Y. M. C. A.,
the moral and social welfare of our
soldiers are all evidences of the
Christian leaven in the hearts and
spirit of men and women of today.
Democracy is the realization of the
tehts and worth of the other person.
The soldier not only has a body, but
is morale, his spirit and human ties
are even more important. Every-
here is seen the direct influence of
this leaven in the ideals, the co-operation,
the willing sacrifice of men and
women for the good of others who are

tin Luther when four hundred years
ago, by his caustic preaching and
writing, he defied the Pope and his
satellites to prove that "Indulgences"
were consistent with "repentance and
reconciliation" as the same are taught
by Jesus Christ.
Close Of Convention
The convention of chemists and mill
engineers came to an end Friday
evening with a banquet at the Com

to be a very enjoyable affair. Prior
to the feast, officers were elected for
the ensuing period. Only one Maul
man was on the list, Hamilton Mc
Cubbin, mill engineer of Pioneer, be
ing chosen one of the directors at
The convention lasted several days
and resulted in a number of technical
papers and discussion of interest to

MR. VILLIERS' SERMON
At the Church of the Good Shep
herd, last Sunday morning, the Rector,
Rev. J. Charles Villiers, preached on:
Repentance and Reconciliation,"
from the text; "And all things are of
!od, who hath reconciled us to him
self by Jesus Christ. II Cor., 6. 18.
He made extended reference to
Martin Luther, and the part Luther
played 400 years ago, in rescuing
from the oblivion into which it had
fallen, the true doctrine of "Repent
ance and Reconciliation." For many
centuries the Holy Roman Church had
given place to undersirable practices
in connection with her doctrine of
the forgiveness of sins, among which,
perhaps, the sale of "indulgences'
was the least in harmony with the
teaching of our Lord.
For many centuries before Luther's
day the sale of indulgences had ob
tained in the Roman Church to a
greater or less extent. But at no
earlier time had it become the general
evil it was in Luther's day. Pope
Leo 10th. was in the papal chair. He
was a great lover of art, and it is
said, of personal luxury. His prede
cessor, Pope Julius II, had begun
building the great Church of St.
Peter's, Rome, from plans of Michael
Angelo. But he left the work incom
plete, his funds having run out. Pope
Leo conceived the idea of extending
the custom of selling indulgences,
and of usng the proceeds to continue
and complete the building of St. Pe
ter's. He put this idea into practice
with the result that there was, so to
tpeak, a wholesale disposal of them.
This aroused the righteous indigna
tion of Martin Luther, and he both
preached and wrote against a practice
so peruicious, pointing out that the
forgiveness of sin could never be se
cured from God by the possession of
a scrap ol paper called an "Indul-
ence." True pardon, he vehement
ly contended, by voice and pen, comes
to us only from God in response to
true repentance. We are reconciled
to God, not by deeds of merit, but by
grace, and this grace is ours not for
the asking but is our the moment
we, In the mood of a true repentance,
turn to God, as the prodigal turned
to his father, and say: "Father,
have sinned against thee".
There may be, and often is, a world
of difference in saying "I have sinned'
and saying "I have been detected in
my sin". The one represents the
mood of sorrow for sin, the other an
noyance, and it may be something
worse, that our sin has been "found
No better definition of true repent
ance is there, perhaps, than in Isaiah
words: "Let the wicked forsake his
way, and the unrighteous man his
