CHURCH NEWS
NOTES
MINNEAPOLIS CHURCHES
Bethesda —The smallest number
in attendance at Bethesda since the
resignation of the Rev. I. H. Fisher
came last Sunday morning to hear
the Rev. Hayward of New York.
This was in no respects derogatory
to the visiting minister but was
due to the attraction of other
church services which induced
other church members to keep to
their own churches and drew some
of Bethesda’s membership as well.
The speaker who has preached two
or three times before at this church
delivered an interesting sermon
and added to the number of those
who admire his pulpit appearances.
Reports from the treasurer show
encouraging improvement and the
auxiliaries of the church are ex
hibiting a healthy state of activity.
Rev. J. J. Clayburn, the assistant
pastor, filled the pulpit of his
friend, the Rev. Solomon, in his
lowa charge.
Zion —Sunday was a busy day at
Zion. From the early Sunday
school to the last minute of the
evening service some of Zion’s
people were in the church carry
ing on in the interest of one gath
ering or another. The special and
perhaps the most important serv
ice of the day was the afternoon
rally which brought out the largest
number of people and raised quite
a helpful bit of money. The pro
gram presented was typical of the
spirit of Zion. Each of the
church’s auxiliaries was repre
sented with its own colors and in
its own pew. It, was called a self
denial rally in which each member
sacrificed something of money or
time in aid of the church. Mrs.
Mildred Manderville of the Young
Matrons is president; Mrs. Geral
dine Edwards, program chairman.
The following program was given:
Prayer, D. J. Wade; piano solo,
Juanita Wallace; the Musical
Notes sang; Beulah Peterson, a
piano solo; Louise Bohannon dis
cussed, “Two Different Self De
nials”; Mrs. Martha Lee gave a
reading as did Miss June Hawkins,
both selections from Dunbar. The
acapella quartette sang and the
Rev. H. W. Botts made some per
tinent remarks. Monies raised:
Usher Board, $3.35; Church, $3.73;
Sunday school, $2.00; Deaconesses
and officers, $6.01; Senior Mission
Society, $2.76; Young Matrons,
$3.84; B. Y., $3.11, and Deacons,
$4.20. With morning and evening
sermons and the B. Y. P. U. led by
Mr. and Mrs. F. P. Phillips, it was
indeed a “busy day.”
ST. PETER CHURCH NOTES
St. Peter increased its singing
capacity last Sunday with the
service of the senior and gospel
choir together. Rev. C. F. Stewart
in giving his best seems conse
crated to the cause of Christian
leadership. He believes the church
to be an institution of Christian
relationship as well as a sacred
place of worship. Closely con
nected with this he believes is
home, family prayer. His text last
Sunday: “Except the Lord build
the house they labor in vain that
build it.” Members and friends
who have been neglecting their
duty, in attending church service,
recently, will find all going well
in St. Peter when they return. Re-
member the church is one of the
three institutions which serves to
make your own life a success. So
come out Sunday and before you
leave go and shake the pastor’s
hand, offer your service, your
prayers; ask of him the same.
Mr. and Mrs. Carmichel of 3121
18th avenue south was host
to Rev. C. F. Stewart and his en
tire family last Sunday. It has
been officially decided that the The Ministerial Alliance of the
ushers will take names of visitors Twin Cities was entertained at the
and turn them over to the Pastor’s Parsonage, 435 Jay street. Rev.
Aid for introduction as compiled and Mrs. Wm. E. Guy, hosts, as
by the pastor. sisted by Mrs. Bennie Vivian.

ST. PAUL RECORDER
Stewardship here Includes one’s
self and substance —stewardship In
money is only a small part of our
responsibility. God has entrusted
each of his servants with certain
gifts, and will hold each respon
sible for the use he makes of them.
God has lent us capital, and one
day will require of us a report of
the business we have done with it
By talents is meant whatever gifts
and powers we possess as gifts
from God, whether of nature or of
grace, such as strength, reason,
knowledge, influence, time, money,
ability to speak, sing.
I. The Distribution of the Talents
(vv. 14, 15).
1. It was a sovereign act. He
called his own servants and dis
tributed to them his own money. As
the one who created us and owns
us, he has assigned us our places
and given us our several powers,
Intending that we put them to the
best possible use.
2. It was an intelligent act. The
distribution was made according to
“several ability.” The God who
made us knew our ability to use
gifts, therefore he made the dis
tribution upon that basis. A recog
nition of God’s sovereignty and in
telligence regarding the distribution
of his gifts will make us content in
our sphere of labor.
3. It was a purposeful act. The
talents were given to be traded
with. They were not given to be
used for personal gain and profit
but as stock in trade for the en
richment and glory of the Master.
11. The Employment of the Tal
ents (vv. 16-18).
1. All the servants recognized
that the talents were not their own
—that they were responsible to the
Lord for the use made of them. We
are not responsible for the creation
of gifts, but for the employment
of such gifts as have been given un
to us.
2. Two servants used their tal
ents. The five-talent man put his to
use and gained five more; the two
talent man put his to use and
gained two more. This shows that
God’s gifts can be increased. The
exercise of any gift Increases it.
It is not primarily a question as to
what we have received, but as to
what use we have made of what
we have received.
3. The one hid his talent The
crime of the one-talent man was not
that he had but one talent but that
he hid the talent which the Lord
gave him. He did nothing with it
To hide a talent may be just as
hard or harder than to use it.
111. The Accounting for the Tal
ents (vv. 19-30).
1. Its certainty (v. 19). There is a
day coming when we all must give
an account of our stewardship.
There is absolutely no escape.
2. The time (v. 19). The time of
accounting will be at the second
coming of Christ. The Incentive to
faithfulness is the coming of the
Lord.
3. The judgments announced (vv.
20-30).
a. Reward of the faithful (vv.
20-23).
. X.-M // // J. .... ..... .
(1). Praise, “Well done.”
All like to be praised. From
childhood on through life, "commen
dation is pleasing.
(2) Promotion, “Be thou ruler
over many things.” Much of that to
which we look forward in life is
the passing from lower to higher
privileges and positions.
(8) Entrance upon the joy of the
Lord. The five-talent man and the
two-talent man received the same
praise and the same promotion.
b. Punishment of the faithless
(vv. 24-30).
(1) Reproach, “Thou wicked and
slothful servant.” To be called lazy
is a reproach which even the lazy
man dislikes.
(2) Stripped, “Take therefore the
talent from him.” The talent en
trusted to him was to be taken from
him.
(3) Cast out, “Cast ye the unprof
itable servant into outer darkness.”
Complete Surrender
On the day of his conversion Paul
was filled with the Holy Ghost, and
he remained filled until he went
home by the road of martyrdom.
And if you ask why he maintained
a journey heavenward so unfail
ing he might answer in this way:
He would tell you that when he
was lying on the Damascus high
way he saw the glorified Christ on
the Cr«)ss, and he said, as he took
his lost and wasted life and placed
it tn the wounded hands, “Lord un
dertake for me.” He placed his life,
without reserve. In Christ’s al-,
mighty hand.
