IN UNION SERVICE
to Offer Up Their
FORCEFUL SERMON PREACHED
By Key. H. W. Iteed Other Observ
ances to Mark the
A congregation that tilled the large
auditorium of l'.roadwav Presbyter
ian church was present yesterday
niorninsr at the union Thanksoivine
service, in which the parishioners of the
First Methodist. Spencer Memorial
Methodist, Christian Memorial, Ger
man Methodist, First llaptist, and
Central, United and Itroadway Pres
byterian churches joined.
Special music was furnished by a
choir composed of Mrs. J. K. Scott,
Mrs. II. K. Reynolds. Mrs. Paul Ham
ilton, Mrs. Y. (). Talbot, Miss Hallie
McC'rory, Miss Amy Thompson. .1. A.
Johnson, E. L. 1'hilbrook. Dr. A. II.
McCandless and Dr. H. (J. Trent.
The services opened with an organ
prelude, after which Hew D. L. Mc
Xary, of the United church, reafl the
president's Thanksgiving proclama
tion. The doxology was said by
Uev. McXary; the choir sang a
Thanksgiving anthem: there was re
sponsive reading of Psalm cvii., led
by Uev. II. 15. Williams; scripture les
son, by Uev. William Torrance; song.
"O. Thou That Tellest," Mrs. Reynolds
and choir; sermon. Uev. II. W. Heed;
prayer, Uev. J. H. Uuttcr. and bene
diction by Uev. J. L. Litzrodt.
Rev. Reed's Sermon.
Uev. Ueed's text was John 3: 10;
"For Clod so loved the world, that he
gave His enly begotten son. that who
soever believed in Him. should not
perish, but have everlasting life."
The speaker said:
"It is right to thank flod for every
little rec.gnized blessing. This is in
keeping with the spirit of the exhor
tation of the apostle, that in every
thing we should give thanks. Xor
does he overstate this dutv. It makes
a great difference whether one is
looking upon the experiences of life
in an appreciative and thankful spirit.
or in a critical and exacting spirit.
The spirit of thankfulness reveals a
humble heart, loving ana appreciative
of (Jod's constant mercies. The criti
cal, spirit uncovers a self-important
heart, marked bv selfish demands for
only the largest and best. The one is
in harmony with Cod: the other a
sumes an implied equality, and finds
fault if everything is not immediately
to his likinr.
"I was greatly impress-ed with the
scripture which was read in our hear
ing a few minutes ago. (l)ut. s: ) J was
also impressed' with the president's
proclamation, as that was read. The
writer in the Pentateuch could hardly
have written a description that would
have bet'er fitted the conditions pre
vailing here in our land. And it would
seem difficult for any man to point
more pertinently to the material
blessings that have been ours than was
done by our president. There have
been these blessings too numerous to
enumerate, and beneficial beyond
we are Here today as ihe repre
sentatives of the churches and chris
tians of the city. We are here to
give the formal thanks of this com
nmnity.to (iod for all the material
blessings of the past year, as those
have come into our personal, our civic
ami our national me. hornet lines peo
ple ask what they have for which
they should be especially thankful.
They look about them and see
unexpected losses, disappointments
lack of improvement. and oth
er undesirable experiences. It is im
portant to us as individuals that these
things le as much as possible for our
prosperity. And yet, one must not al
low the nearer misfortune to obscure
the sight, so as to prevent the per
eepnon ot (mil s many olessings on
all sides of ns.
Appreciation of Divine Gift.
"Thus gathered for thanksgiving,
it is our duty to voice to (Sod men's ap
preciation of the divine gifts. It is al
so our duty to voice to men (Sod's
estimation of the value of His gifts.
To show what are the most valuable
of those gifts becomes." then, n part
of the privilege of this hour.
"The text chosen has at least two
important thoughts. (1.) The love of
(Sod; and (2) (Sod's gift. It is impos
sible to describe all that is involved
in (Sod's love. It is. unsearchable, in
comprehensible and inexplicable.
Why should (Sod so love us? We are
unworthy of that love; and yet. noth
ing less than this can satisfy (Sod.
And we cannot grasp the value of,
(Sod's gifts to us. They are on every
side, of us, wlking and sleeping, and
have followed us all the years of our
lives. When we have not dared ask
for them, they have still been given
"But subordinate to these thoughts,
yet so modifying them as really to
govern them, comes another thought
brought to ns by the little word stij
Its influence can hardly be measured.
In fact, it is itself the measure by
which we learn the value of all else
that is said, flod can give, and Cod
gives us many great benefits. I5ut
these were not the measures of His
love. His love could go further than
that, until it came to the point of giv
ing His best, and that was His son.
All other things have value, but this
has greater value than all else. And
when God saw the needs of men. His
love could satisfy itslf with nothing
less than this gift of His son. No
man has ever yet ascertained the value
of Christ's death, for no one has ever
yet exhausted its benefits. We know
what money can do, for there are men
who have all the money they can use
or invest; and we know that money is
not all, and that money cannot bring
the greatest happiness. Men have had
the world's pleasures in large shares,
and have become satiated. Napoleon
had honors and earthly power, and yet
he died forgotten by many, and
mourned only by a few. Hut above all
these, surprising us D.V their worth,
surpassing all else in helpfulness, sur
mounting all others in the estimation
of both Cod and man are the wonder
ful blessings given us in the gift of
God in His son Jesus Christ.
To Be Better Than to Have.
"If Jesus had said that God so loved
us, that he would give to every man
who came to Him a thousand dollars
in gold, many would think at first
that here was a promise of real value.
Put second thoughts would follow,
and then people would see that money
was cheap and insignificent after all.
Money, and other such guts, might be
regarded as that which we could have.
P.ut (Sod gives us something that we
may become. The old statement, 'To
be is better than to seem is still true;
and it might be said with equal truth,
to be is beter than to have. So, in this
gift to us of His son, (Sod has given
us the girt that in our iruer tnougnis
we all regard as the very best.
"Passing over the processes of de
velopment, reference shall be made
only to the result. We read that now
we are the sons of Cod, and that it
does not vet appeax what we shall be
but we know that when He shall ap
pear we shall be like Him, for we shall
see ilim as lie is. i nis was a iso a pan
of Christ's prayer, that we might
be with Him where lie was, that we
might behold His glory. So. says the
anostle. beholding Him as He is, we
shall be like Him.
"I personally want to stop dissect
ing Cod's gifts, analyzing them, scru
tinizing them, criticising them, and
classifying them, so that I may judge
as to whether they are of sufficient.

thanks; but I want to acept this won
