In a remark before a ministers
conference last wo'ck, Rov. L. M.
Blrkhead, ot the Maple Ave. M. E.
Church in St. Louis, said among
other foolish (things, "There is
something wrong with tho boy
who longs for tho time to como
whon ho goes to Sunday School.
Ho is also qifotod as saying that
tho boy who likes to go to pray
er-mooting should be examined,
unfortunately his statement ap
plies correctly to many churches,
but tho order should be reversed,
Any Sunday School or prayer-
meeting which is not attended by
tho boys with pleasure should be
investigated and the pastors also.
Tho hopo of the church today la
in tho children more than ever
and a well reared boy or girl in
a Christian homo enjoys the fel
lowship, singing nnd service of
his church when it Is sincere.
