DR. SCHERER AT CENTRAL.
Sermon on the Three Types of Chris
Dr. J. A. B. Scherer occupied the
pulpit at Central Methodist church
last evening. A large congregation
was present and the sermon was
thorough-ly enjoyed. His subject was
"Three Types of Service," The types
of character being Lazarus, Martha
and Mary, all of whom were present
at.the supper that was prepared for
Christ at the 'house of Martha. The
three persons .all did service unto
Christ, yet they were separate and
distinct. Even as there ware differ
ent types of service to God in the day
of Mary, Martha and Lazarus, so it
is today. Tlhe busy housewife, going
about her domestic duties serves
Christ in the thome as did Martha,
who prepared the meal for Christ.
Mary broke the -alabaster box and
annointed the feet of Christ, served
Him, though after her own fashion
and the -service rendered by Lazarus
was still a different type. Not one of
these types of service was perfect.
Dr. Scherer p;ointed the danger of
too great a service along distinct lines.
Man should serve Chris-r with his
ieart, soul and mind-the three com
bined making 'the ideal type of ser
