Sunday morning Pastor Sauer continues his series of addresses on “The Glorious Succession of Prophets.” The theme being, “The Apostles, and the New Evangelism of their Day.” The first ad dress was upon the great succession of Hebrew Prophets from M asea to Joan the Baptist, their radiant faith in the Unity of God, their loyal belief in the people, the absolute devotion ot their lives to their high calling. The romantic and arresting personality of Moses was de scribed with some fullness, his birth, preservation from death, his transfer from the hovel of a slave to the palace of a Pharaoh, and his training for his great office of first Prophet, in the school of pagan learning, and the school of the Bacred Presence. Moses was a great human and he never forgot even in the luxury ot the palace the cruel fate of the Hebrew people suffering under the iron tyranny of Egyptian slavery He struck tremendous blows for their freedom, and single-handed, with God Almighty, whose new name “Jehovah” had been revealed to him, he realiied for them the dream of his passionate loyalty and devotion—free dom, justice, humanity. The address closed with Moses’ prayer, as he realize i the tragic need of the world of a glorious succession of Prophets to champion the cause of the wronged and the oppressed, to bring light and inspiration to the whole human race, comfort for their sorrows and pardon for their sins. “Would God that all the Lord’s people were prophets, and that the Lord would put his Bpirit upon them.” Moses’ prayer is having an ever increasing answer in the days that have followed. , At the Sunday evening wcrship it is expected that the new hymn books will be used. The male quartette will sing and there will be other inspiring music. Appointments: Monday evening, 7.30, social, entertainment and sale by the people of the church.
