W. M. Danner, the secretary of Hip

ed. Monday morning, in company with
Rev. R. n. Dodge, Mr. Danner went
to Molokai by sampan. The trip was
made in pood time, so that Kalaupa
pa was reached by half past six
o'clock in the evening. The last
part of the way down the pali was
made on foot. The telephone lines
had heen broken on Molokai, so that
a message of the visit was sent with
difticulty. In the evening a visit was
paid the new social hall which had
been built through the efforts of
Superintendent John D. McVeigh and
Dr. V. J. Goodhue, of the Settlement.

and especially the new wards and the
Bishop Home for girls, were inspect
ed. At 10 o'clock Mr. Danner de
livered an address to about 125 of the
inmates who had gathered. Had
there been a longer time to get the
word about the hall would have been
crowded. The address was heard
most eagerly, and afterwards the peo
ple crowded around the visitors, thank
ing them for coming and for th
message of cheer that they had
brought with them. At. 1 o'clock
service was held at the Kalaupapa
Protestant church which was well at
tended, and here Mr. Danner told of

REVIEW OF THE HISTORY OF
THE CHURCH OF THE
Rev. J. Charles Villiers preaching,
last Sunday morning, from Romans
12, 4: "For as we have many mem
bers in one body, all members have
not the same office," gave a brief re
view of the Church of the Good Shep
herd, during the more than fifty one
years of its history. Eight rectors
have ministered to it in that time, and
several clergymen, not in full charge,
have served It for short periods. Its
first Church edifice, the present par
ish house, was opened for worship,
by the Rev. George Whipple, its first
rector, at Christmas, 1865. His suc
cessor was Rev. John Bridger, who
was followed by Rev. Sydney Wilbur.
In 1880, Rev. S. E. Grosser took
charge. It was a time of great dis
couragement, of patient waiting, and
quiet effort, for the mists and murKy
fogs of misunderstanding to evapor
ate and pass away. But progress
was made. In his four years of
ministry in the parish, the church un
derwent renovation, and structural
The first twenty years of the
church's life were years in which
"foundations were laid;" the years
since, have been years of consolida
tion and slow, but, steady expansion.
Not all has been sunshine, neither
has all been shadow with tho congre
gation, at any time. Occasionally,
there has been encouragement; ocas
sionally discouragement, but from
nrsi o last, a torward movern
Uelore the long, faithful, and emi
nently successful rectorate of Rev.
William Ault, Rev. V. H. Kitkat ser
ved the congregation, and is still
pleasantly remembered by some mem
bers of it.
Mr. Ault's pastoral service of more
than ten years was not only exten
sive, but was also intensive. He build
ed well. He was followed by a rector,
Rev. W. S. Short, under whose few
years of ministry, much was accom
plished, and not least, the erection of
the present church.
For more than forty years, a par
ish school was maintained In eonner-
tion with the Church, the foundations
of the school being laid by Mr. Whip
ple. Fro:n this school have gone
forth men and women who have nobly
borne their part in the social com
pact, and been a tredit to tho institu
tion. From causes over which, ner-
haps, no one had control, the school
a few years ago, fell into desuetude.
That the Church itself, in days to
come, may have increasing difficulty
in securing conuitions conducive to
numerical and spiritual growth is
more than likely, and most certainly.
such growth will only come in res
ponse to a loyal adherenoe to the
Church, and to the fundamentals of
the Christian religion, by its mem
The congregation labors under the
great disadvantage of living far apart,
so that, probably, at every Sunday
service a minority, and not a major
ity of members is present. The num
ber of confirmed persons in the par-
sh is 176, including a small Korean
mission. A goodly number are ab
sent from parish, in Honolulu, or on
the mainland. Of the remainder,
more than 50 per. cent, are "up coun
try," or elsewhere, beyond the con
fines of Wailuku. There is an excel
lent Woman's Guild, second to none
In willing-hearted service; a Sunday v
school, small, but of good quality; a
united vestry which though it has not
uperabundant means, manages by
the generosity of those who help it
out to make .ends meet.
In the epistle to the Ephesians we
have a splendid word picture of the
universal Church, as it is to be in the
fulness of time, a church of true uni
ty, in which none are strangers, and
foreigners, but all are fellow saints
of the household of God. The world
is slowly moving toward to that con
summation. So surely as the day fol
lows the night, so surely is the time
coming when for all mankind there
shall be "One Lord, one faith, one
baptism, one God and Father of all,
who is above all, and through all, and1
in all, for the perfecting of the saints,
for the edifyng -of the body of Christ,
till we. all come in the unity of the
faith, and of the knowledge of the'
Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto
the measure of the fulness of Christ."
A 1918 Motto
"This one thing I do" was the 1918
motto used by the Rev. A. Craig Bow
dish, the minister of the Makawao
Union Church, in suggesting the
direction of his congregation to the-r
great need tor moral and Christian 1
efficiency in this year of war and
need for abiding strength. Paul
wrote these words to the church at
Philippi when he was in prison. He
was putting out of his life the things
already past. He was stretching for
ward like a runner in a race toward
the goal of life and character which
is like that of Jesus Christ. Paul
concentrated his whole life on "This
one thing." It was this being absorb
ed in the spirit of God which lifted
Paul's life out of the ordinary and
commonplace. It was this which
gave value and lasting influence to
his many years of consuming labor
among the people of his day. Only
in degree will the lives of today
which are likewise centered on tho
Christian virtues be any less helpful
than was that of Paul. No other
man has had such a far reaching and
transforming Influence as he.
