Comment on the Christian
Endeavor Topic for Tomor
row, "Financing the King
dom." Luke, 10.11-26.
By William T. Ellis.
"Missions" is a word often in the
headlines of the newspapers nowadays
?but it alludes to the deputations sent
by the allied nations to the United
States and from America to Russia. In
connection therewith a single budget
of seven billions of dollars was voted
for the world war. The expenditures
now being made to preserve civiliza
tion make all that has been given to
Christian missions seem small. We are
learning anew that great goals are
worthy of great gifts.

There are various ways of coming
Into contact with the foreign mission
field. Some of us may touch it with
our hands, gathering the ripe grain for
the King's garner; others of us may
touch it only through the contribution
box?the point of contact is our gifts;
still others reach the regions beyond
by way of the mercy seat; they are
the Christians whose prayers constant
ly ascend for the cause of missions. The
first of th?se means is a privilege
granted only to a few; the other two
rest as a duty upon every follower of
the Savior of the world.

of a Roger Williams Memorial Church
was unanimously adopted J) legates
were chosen to carry the project before
both the northern and southern eon

The Baptist Ministers' Association of
the District of Columbia at a recent
meeting enthusiastically indorsed the
project of a National Roger Williams
Memorial Church, also a statue of the
great founder of the Baptist denomi
nation. to be located on the present
site of the Immanuel Baptist Church.
The cost of the churdh and staue,
while not definitely decided upon, may
reach $250,000 or *300,000. It is point
ed out that no memorial of national
proportions has been erected to the
memory of Roger Williams, and also
that the National Capital is the most
fitting location for such a structure.
The present site of Immanuel Church
is also thought by many to be a splen
did location for the erection of such
a memorial here.
At the Intersection of Columbia road
and 16th street, overlooking the en
trance to Rock Creek Park, It is point
ed out. It would possess natural ad
vantages of beauty unsurpassed by any
church edifice in the District. On
Thursday evening, at a" meeting In Im

two national organisations will be
made and steps taken for the fur
therance of the project.
