The doling Holy Communion
service of Greater Bethel for the
conference year will be hold on
Sunday morning with Pastor A.
Wayman Ward as celebrant. Ap
propriate choral music will be of
vred hv t -e tu o choirs. The en
tire membership is being urged to
participate in the service.
Sunday evening services will

the general conference chorus of
Bethel furnishing the music. The
fall program will be initiated
with this service, hence all mem

Bethel class leaders are com
pleting their Dollar Money Roll
for the year, with an appeal to
every member, and the many
friends, to make payment on Sun
day, when the leaders wilL be giv
en the right of way.
Pastor Ward’s discussion of the
topic “Is the Church Doomed?”
brought out many interested visi
tors and students, and created
much comment. He stated that
the distinctly Negro church would
remain as long as Negroes were
conscious of their need of racial
self expression, and as long as
non-Negro Christians failed to ac
cept Negroes full one hundred per
cent in the Christian family and
faith in every way. Inimical
forces, both within and without
the Negro church would not be
sufficient to discredit or destroy
the rhurch as long as it held to
the life, faith, and teachings of
Jesus Christ in serving humanity.
When all racial and denomination
al lines shall have been obliter
ated in Christianity, then shall
the Negro church, as such, become
one in the universal Church of
Christ. Until then, let Negroes
continue to recognize, accredit,
and support it as the finest ave
nue of expression known to them
in this present world. The sepa
ratist movement in the Methodist,
Baptist, Congregational, Episcopal
and other Protestant churches,
and the recent absorptionist move
I ment among the Roman Catholics
] Bahaists, Scientists, etc., will af

themselves serve to perpetuate

A FUNDAMENTAL DESIRE
JA deeply embedded in the human
: consciousness is for security*
t'or assurance of safety amid the
many adverse conditions which &o
commonly beset mortal experience;
To attain this sense requires con
stant conscious effort on the part
The student of the Bible find&
that the people of the distant times
with which the Scriptures deal
sought and found this very sense of
Security in the divine omnipotence,
which they termed “Jehovah.” Many
inspired writers expressed their as
surance of safety in the Most High,
when obedient to Him. No better
example of this sense of safety in
Deity appears in the Bible than the
ninety-first Psalm, in which multi
tudes of distraught persons have
found peace based upon a complete
sense of security. “He that dwell
eth in the secret place of the most
High shall abide under the shadow
of the Almighty,” runs the first
verse. And assuredly such abiding
shields one from harm. This assur
ance is emphasized in the verses
that follow, until it seems that one
who has learned to dwell “in the
secret place” has found a sense of
security wherein he may abide in
perfect peace and safety.
The questions arise, By what
means may we learn to dwell in this
“secret place of the most High”?
What is this place, and how is it
attained? The secret place is divine
consciousness. God is Mind, and
infinite Mind is infinite conscious
ness. When men attain, through
spiritual sense, the ability to enter
that divine state of consciousness,
they have gained the mental state
of peace and safety — a spiritual
understanding of security which
may not be overthrown. Why? Be
cause God, as infinite Mind, and His
universe of spiritual ideas consti
tute all reality, and nothing real or
permanent exists or has power or
presence apart from this infinitude
Having gained this understand
ing, one rests securely, for he then
dwells in “the secret place,” in the
perfect assurance of man’s contin
uous well-being. . . . Man as God’s
likeness, His expression, is idea,
image. God’s likeness, the likeness
of Spirit, is spiritual. Therefore
man is the expression of Mind, of
Spirit; and this Mind, which is in
finite divine consciousness, is con
scious of its own idea, that is, of
man. When individuals realize that,
as children of God, divine ideas,
they forever dwell in the conscious
ness which is divine, they have
gained the perfect sense of security.
God’s creation is permanent and
perfect. It can never be disturbed
or destroyed by any phase of evil.
Error of whatsoever type or form
has no power to change or destroy
that which God has made. Surely
there could be no greater sense of
security, of perfect safety, than the
understanding that, as the child of
God, man is forever as perfect in a |
degree as God Himself; that man
is coexistent and coeternal with
God; hence, that man is eternal, in
destructible. When this understand
ing is gained, the fears that beset
mortal existence fade from con
sciousness, and mortals know the
joy of dwelling in “the secret
place,” true consciousness.
This sense of dwelling in safety
is an everyday possibility. And it
makes no difference as to the
dangers which rnay beset us. There
is no condition in which mortals
may find themselves where this un
derstanding is not applicable. In
the midst of wars, of turmoils,
dangers at sea, the battlefront, in
short, in any condition in which we
may find ourselves, this understand
ing leads to a perfect sense of
safety. Since God is ever present,
divine consciousness is ever and
everywhere available as the refuge
from all harm. Man, the real man,
God’s likeness, never ceases to dwell
in that refuge, “under the shadow
of the Almighty.” And in so dwell
ing, there can no danger befall him.
No evil, no destructive power or in
fluence, can enter that state of con
smousne.-s wherein the real man
How clear'y is this expressed in
the twenty-third Psalm: “Though I
walk through the valley of the
shadow of death. I will fear no evil;
for thou art with me; thy rod and
thy staff they comfort me”! The
Psalmist dwelt in the perfect as
surance that God, divine Love, is
forever oaring for His image and
likeness. WhRtier expresses this
thought in a beautiful quatrain:
“I know not where His islands lift
Their fronted r)°’ms in air;
1 only know I cannot drift
7ieyo*id TPs love and care.”
Mortars can never De in any place
where divine Love is not present
and avaiiah'e to meet the human
need. Mary Ba.ter Eddy has ex
pressed this beautifully and em
phatically on page 494 of Science
and Health: “Divine Love always
has met and always will meet every
human need.” Security, then, from
every ill, is found in the conscious
ness of the ever-nresence of divine
Love which meets all needs. . . .

benediction was pronounced. No
speaker in the history of these
campmeetings was so warmly re
