ST. JAMES A. M. E. CHURCH,
Sunday morning services begin
at 11 o’clock.
Sunday School at 9:45 a. m.
Music by the Senior Choir.
Sunday morning, Rev. McCor
mick delivered a very interesting
and far-reaching, sermon, on the
“Old Rugged Cross,” after its
pleasing rendition by the Choir.
You should have been there.
We were favored with quite a
number of visitors Sunday. Their
presence gives encouragement in
our start for better and better
times at St. James. They are
cordially invited to come again and
even help us in our struggle for a
successful year. You, too, are
welcome.
Rev. McCormick will preach
Sunday afternoon at 3 o’clock for
the Quarterly Conference at St.
Peters Church. The Choir will ac
company him and furnish the
music.
The meeting to elect officials of
the church and organization of
clubs and auxiliaries Tuesday

interest seems to be awakened in
all departments. A united front
for St. James is the key to our
success.
Next Sunday after Sunday
School the Junior Choir will hold
their last outdoor activity this
year with an outing at beautiful
Taylors Falls. Mrs. James Smith,
Mr. and Mrs. Govenor Cook will be

ST. PETER A. M. E. CHURCH
Reverend C. F. Stewart, after
recovering from a slight illness,
conducted his third service of this
conference year, last Sunday, at
St. Peter. A large membership,
including about twenty visitors',*Jit
tended. Most of them came ffom
St. Paul, where Reverend Stewart
was a former pastor. The pastor
hopes to make his service so ef
fective so as to continue as large
and as enthusiastic an attendance
as the one which filled St. Peter
to the doors last Sunday.
Miss Lelia McClellan, 2301 Ist
avenue south, returned last week
from a ten-day trip to Chicago,
where she attended the Century
of Progress.
Isaac L. Moore, Jr., will leave
Thursday, Oct. 18, for Miami, Fla.,
where he will go to attend the
American Legion convention.
Bethesda—Rev. M. W. Withers,
a former pastor of both Bethesda
and Zion churches, preached at the
Bethesda church, last Sunday.
Rev. Withers made it very clear he
would like to pastor the church
once more, promising a number of
desirable things he could and
would do for the church if it looked
favorably upon his wish. The
church took no action indicating
how it felt in this matter, but a
number were heard to comment
favorably upon the minister’s en
gaging frankness. He and other
pastors who have made application
to the church will be considered
when the church convenes in busi
ness session Thursday. The senior
choir sang. The attendance was
almost normal, the offering gener
ous, and the spirit of good will so
much in evidence that the church
is justified in believing it will
quickly recover from the loss of its
departing pastor.
Zion—Our Sunday school is still
on the up-grade—93 present last
Sunday. Sunday communion was
served to many communicants, and
the sermon preached by the Rev.
H. W. Botts was one to fit the need
of the day in a very special way.
His text will be found in the 20th
chapter of the Acts. One new mem
ber was added to the church. In
the evening the B. Y. P. U. not to
be outdone by the other church

LESSON -:-
(By REV t*. B. FITZWATER. D. D„
Member of Faculty, Moody Bible
Institute of Chicago.)
A. Western Newsnaner Union
Lesson for October 14
THE CHRISTIAN AND HIS BIBLE
LESSON TEXT—Acts 8:26-39.
GOLDEN TEAT—O how love I thy
law! It Is my meditation all the day.
Psalm 119:97.
PRIMARY TOPlC—Learning From
God's Book.
JUNIOR TOPIC—An Ethiopian
Finds Good News in the Bible.
INTERMEDIATE AND SENIOR
TOPlC—Finding Time for Bible
Study.
YOUNG PEOPLE AND ADULT
TOPIC—How to Study the Bible.
In the conversion of the Ethio
pian we not only see the Word of
God in relation to the salvation of
a sinner, but the Lord’s work
broadening in its scope.
I. Philip Meeting the Ethiopian
(vv. 26-29).
1. Leaving the Lord’s work by
Divine direction (v. 26). The Lord
called Philip away from a great
work in Samaria, and specifically
directed him to this man. Abraham
like. be obeyed the divine command,
not knowing why he should leave
the work in Samaria and go into
a desert place. As he journeyed
on by faith, he espied the state
chariot of the Ethiopian treasurer.
The Spirit of God directed him to
go near and join himself to the
chariot. The tactful question put
to the treasurer gained him a seat
by the side of this dignified officer.
The commission which at first
seemed so unpromising was now
clear. The way of faith begins in
obscurity, but it always ends in
the clear light.
2. An officer of state reading the
Bible (vv. 27. 28). The Ethiopian
had been to Jerusalem to worship.
Despite his high official position, he
was not ashamed to be a worshiper
of God. Following after God should
not be considered beneath the dig
nity of a statesman. Indeed, the
world’s greatest statesmen have
been God-fearing men.
3. A providential meeting in the
desert (v. 29). The coming together
of these two men was clearly the
predetermined way of God. God
knew the road which the eunuch
would be traveling, and the time of
his passing through Gaza. Philip’s
going to that place was timed ac
cording to the divine knowledge.
11. Philip Preaching to the Ethio
pian (w. 30-35).
1. The Ethiopian’s employment
while journeying (v. 30). His occu
pation at the time of this meeting
was reading the Word of God. At
the invitation of the Ethiopian,
Philip joined himself to the chariot
and found him reading from the
fifty-third chapter of Isaiah. God
will eventually show the way of life
to the one who searches his Word.
2. The absolute need of an inter
preter (v. 31). The Ethiopian was
reading one of the clearest testi
monies to the Messiah in the Old
Testament, yet he was unable to
understand it The Ethiopian, a
great statesman, needed an inter
preter of the Scriptures. The mind
of the natural man is blind to spir
itual things, making the work of an
evangelist indispensable. Preaching
the Word of God will always be nec
essary. Valuable as is the Bible in
the hands of men, the touch and in
fluence of the living man who has
ej»perfe&ced the work of God’s sav
ing* -gnrce in his own heart is
needed.
8. Philip’s message (vv. 32-35).
He began at the Scripture which the
Ethiopian was reading, and preached
onto him Jesus. This shows us that
the person represented in the fifty
third chapter of Isaiah as suffering
in the stead of others was Jesus
Christ Instead of Israel. It shows
also that the central theme of the
preacher’s message should be
Jesusi He did not preach Jesus as
a great teacher, but as a Saviour
who had suffered and died Instead
of the sinner. He preached Jesus
as the one who had offered himself
as a ransom for many. If there is
to be a revival, there must be a re
turn to the preaching of salvation
through the shed blood of Jesus
Christ
11. Philip Baptizing ths Ethiopian
(W. 36-88).
ST. PAUL RECORDER
As a result of Philip’s preaching,
the eunuch proposed baptism. When
Christ is truly preached, men nat
urally desire to confess him In bap
tism. Water baptism is clearly in
cluded In the program of evangeli
zation. The Ethiopian might have
offered many excuses as to why he
should neglect this Important or
dinance. but. like every man who is
honest before God, he was willing
at any cost to render obedience. It
is faith in the finished work of
Jesus Christ that saves, hut those
who have a genuine faith desire to
seal it in baptism.
IV. The Ethiopian Rejoicing (v.
39).
Having understood the way of
salvation, embraced the Saviour,
and rendered obedience to the Word
of God. he went on his way rejoic
ing. Confession of Christ always
issues in joy.
We must reinembe; we ha»e two
ears, to hear each side before we
give judgment.- -Matthew Henry.

Troy Sixth City on Site <•
Digging into the desert sands of
Asia Minor an expedition from the
University of Cincinnati discovered
some interesting facts about an*
clent Troy and its site, says Path
finder Magazine. This city, immor
talized by Homer, was built on a
spot which has seen the rise and
fall of eight other cities. The first
to grow on this historic ground
ceased to exist about 6,000 years
ago, and the last to flourish there
had its untimely end about 500 years
after the death of Christ. - Digging
through successive layers of debris
and unearthing tons of pottery of
different dates, the archeologists es
tablished Troy as being the sixth of
the nine cities to occupy the ill-,
fated spot
