The 1918 Outlook
The Rev. A. Craig Bowdish at the
Makawao Union church spoke last
Sunday morning on "The 1918 Out
look." He centered his thought on
a portion of Paul's letter to the
Colossians where he outlined the
just relations between people. Wives
and husbands need to lie mutually
thoughtful. Parents and children
must heed each other patiently and
sympathetically. Employers and the
employed must deal justly with one
another before there can be real
democracy and peace. For centuries
the world has ignored or only play
ed with this mutual relationship.

"Tho Epiphany" is a festival of
the Church which always falls on .he
tilh day of January. 12 days after
Christmas. For that reason it is
sometimes spoken of as "Twelfth
Hay." It completes the Christmas
cycle, and conmieuiorat es the visit of
tiie wise men from the East to the
inlant Jesus nt Pel lilehein, lo whom
they brought gills of "gold, frank
incense, and myrrh" and with these,

And this boast fulness of IndiiTer-en.-e
lo church services is eltn o
oressed in a wav to suggest that they
believe that such indifference has the
! approval of Jesus Christ. Where this
i spirit exists it indicates a peculiar
form or moral, if not mental, in nsiiy,
in relalion to the teaching of Jesus
Christ, and also to his example. He
was sinless, yet, we are told,
went, up into a mountain to pray,
worshipped, sabbath by sabbath,
the synagogue, with the people
Nazareth, lie joined in the Temple
services, and reminded those who,
under the plea of necessity, had come
to think of religion in terms of
material gain, and not. in terms of
spiritual life, that the Temple was
His Father's house, the place of com
mon, and united prayer. Bolh by His
teaching and by His example Jesus
put first thingH first. He taught that
the worship of C.od, and the service
of man are the complement of each
While charity may precede worship
yet by worship we are inspired to
charity, and our deeds of charity are
leavened by Christian grace. The
end of worship is to gain knowledge
of and enter into fellowship with
Cod, in Christ, and out of such know
ledge and fellowship learn tho bet
ter to love and serve our fellowmen.
A non-Christian civilization, mater
ialistic, sell-seeking, in its aim, can
never furnish adequate motive to
human life, to make that life all It
should be; all it ought to be. Even
philanthropy itself will prove to be no
adequate substitute for spiritual re
ligion. Christian America, and that section
of it known as the territory of Ha
waii, has reason to beware lest it for
get the solemn words of Jesus Christ:
Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God,
and Him, only, shalt thou serve.
