"Therefore at various times during the year 1917, largo meetings or festiv ities are bolng held in commemoration of tho Reformation in nearly all Prot estant denominations of the world. Tho main purpose of this celobratlon is not to oxtrol Luther or other great reformers but rather to remind our selves of tho results of their labors that wo might come to a bettor reali zation of thoso truiths which never die." Tho Lutherans state the object of their celebration In theso words: "We celobrate tho Reformation of tho Six teenth century in order to hasten the Transformation of tho Twentieth." It Is not to antagonizo or tear down any othor faith or belittle any other, de nomination, but to como to a better knowledge of thoir own for greater efficiency In tho great work of caring for their own and doing their part in tho great world evangelization In this contury. It Is an opportunity to bear testimony before the world to a faith and practice which God has chosen to make tho faith of many nations, and which onrolls as her members more than one-hal of the entire prot 03tant world. It Is a most favorable opportunity to lead our pooplo into a larger understanding of this glori ous church and thereby to fire, their hearts for greater achievements for Christ and His Kingdom."

In rofusing to substitute any othor mossago in Us puuilpits for tho oxposition of tho scriptures this church Is often maligned and frequently mis understood, but tho messages which go out from tho pulpits always Insist upon loyalty to country, obedience to nil In authority, and respect for Uio law of tho land.
