"The Upper Room” was the I
Communion sermon preached by I
Rev W. J. G. McLin lust Sunday
morning The subject wus taken
from the 22nd chapter of St. Luke
the 12th verse “ Ami he shall show
you a large upper room furnished
there, make ready.” The pastor
said in part:
When the Lord told the disciples :
to go find the upper room, he was
sure of the hospitality they would
receive. For the Easterners always '
kept an upper room, or guest j
chamber, for strangers. And in
each of these rooms were provided
the proper facilities for worship
regardless of religion. This room
wus best situated for counsel and
meditation—away from the noise
of the family. If we, too, would live
high above the noise and bustle of
tho world, the lesser evils could
not dissuade us. The Passover
commemorates the pass over of tho
Death Angel. What does It mean to
you? Does It mean that you have
passed from Death unto Life?
