LUTHERAN UNITY
TO BE DISCUSSED
Question to Come Before
Sessions June 20-24 in
New York City.
A movement toward uniting the
major Lutheran bodies of America
will occupy the attention of the East
ern district of the American Lutheran
Church at its seventh annual sessions
June 20 to 34 in New York City in
the Fordham Lutheran Church.
During the last decade the three
largest Lutheran synods, the United
Lutheran Church of America, the
Missouri Lutheran Synod and the
American Lutheran Church, have
been gradually coming closer together.
Originally they became separate and
distinct largely because of geographical
barriers, which also produced varying
viewpoints on a number of minor mat
ters of doctrine and practice. How
ever, each group continued to stand
firm on the fundamental confessions
of the Lutheran Church which were
produced during the time of the refor
mation.
Two years ago. at the conventions
of each major body, plans were made
to establish better relationships among
, the groups. Commissions were ap
pointed to iron out the minor diffi
culties.' As a result, when the East
ern district of the American Luther
an Church meets in New York articles
of doctrine and practice, submitted
to the American Lutheran group by
• the United Lutheran Clmrch and the
Missouri Synod, will be considered.
If the Eastern group accepts them, it
is said, the decision will strongly af
fect the American Lutheran Church
and will hasten the establishment of
pulpit and altar fellowship, and co
• operation in the mission and educa
tional work of the church, aS' well as
the exchange of pastors and profea
aors among the various bodies. This
' would be the first step toward estab
: lishing an ultimate union of all the
Lutheran forces in America.
Should a Lutheran Church of
America be consummated, it would
enroll a constituency of more than
t 5,000,000 communicant members. At
present, each major body is of about
• equal size, when the synodical afflli
< ates are considered, each having more
than 1,500.000 adherents.
Dr. Emmanuel E. Poppen, Colum
bus, Ohio, acting president of the
American Lutheran Church, will re
port on progress made toward estab
, lishing better relationships.
The local representatives of the
American Lutheran Church, who will
attend are the Rev. Theodore P.
Frieke, pastor of St, Matthew's Lu
theran Church: the Rev. George J.
Grewenow, pastor of the Faith Lu
theran Church, Arlington, Va.; the
Rev. Dr. Gerhard H. Lenski, pastor
of the Grace Lutheran Church: the
4 Rev. Henry W. Whiting, pastor of
the Christ Lutheran Church, Bethes
da, Md., and the Rev. J. Adrian Pfeif
fer, pastor of the Takoma Lutheran
Church.

A Lesson for the Week
Victory of the Victim
Shows Way Out for World.
By WILLIAM T. BLUR.
MUSING upon this lesson theme, memory harks swiftly back to Trance
and to Macedonia and to Palestine, where rows upon rows, acres upon
acres, of little crosses mark the resting place of the soldier dead.
By some impulse deeper than reason the nations have chosen the
cross symbol for the fallen of the World War—Protestant England, once*
atheistic Trance, Catholic Italy. Orthodox Serbia, Rumania and Greece.
All accept the cross as the significant memorial of the men who have laid
down their lives for a cause.
Is It not becoming clear that only the cross will save our troubled
time? We have tried legislation and arbitration and war and a council of
nations; yet still the unrest of hu-«
inanity grows apace. All that wisdom
and law could do has been done, but
in vain. There is knowledge enough
in the world to save civilization, and
law enough, and material force
enough; nevertheless, organized so
ciety is In a desperate case today.
I am reminded of a spectacle which
I observed at Mount Sinai. Sur
mounting the Mountain of the Law,
and all of the surrounding peaks, are
iron crosses, erected centuries ago by
devout Greek monks from St. Kath
erine’s Monastery. At pains and per
scgial risk, they placed the symbol of
our faith upon those rocky peaks;
sensing the great
truth that the
Mountain of the
Law, without the
sign of love and
Sacrifice, is in
complete. Moses
is inadequate, ex
cept as he leads
to Christ. Mount
Sinai is bare and
barren; Mount
Calvary blossoms
with flowers.
Panicky persons
are crying for
more laws, more
force, more ma

chine guns, with which to meet the
menace of red radicalism.
Their plan is futile. Only a new
spirit in society, and in all classes
of society, can save us from this hate
begetting program of violence. That
is the spirit of the Cross. Of course,
we should deal vigorously with law
breakers, regardless of class; but even
when so doing the motive needs to
be the motive of Calvary, which is to
save. Love to the point of self-sacrifice
alone can deliver the world from the
menace of bitterness and selfishness
and vindictiveness and class-spirit.
The Unehastened Nations.
Real radicalism is, in a dictionary
sense, the getting down to the root of
things. The superficial thinking of
the Bolsheviks is not genuine radi
calism; it is the most obvious and
shallow sort of unrestrained self-in
terest. If the thinking people of today
would really turn radical they would
quickly perceive that at the root of a
successful social order, even as it was
put at the foundation of our constitu
tional democracy, there must be the
spirit of good will' to men. and of the
subordination of the desires of the
individual for the sake of the com
munity. True radicalism digs deep
until it comes to the cross foundation.
Apply that test to the times. The
common cry is that the world needs to
be reformed. Assuredly. And to be re

made. Yes. And to be re-led. Doubt
leu. And to be reorganised. Admit
tedly. And to be re-educated. With
out question.
But beyond all these needs, and un
derlying them every one, is the all
pervading need that the world be
saved—saved from Itself and its old
self-centered nature, which the
preachers call sin; saved from foolish
leaders and fatuous reformers; saved
from theorists and demagogues; saved
from the heedleu followers of every
thing that is new, and saved from the
blind obscurantism which clings only
to what used to be.
War has not chastened humanity;
the depreulon has not chastened it;
nor yet hunger or cold or vast social
upheavals. Is it not time that we
turn aside from our cheap and futile
devices for bettering life and kneel
at the foot of the cross, where peace
has ever been found by the penitent?
We have failed to save ourselves; Why
not let the Christ save us? His yearn
ing for the world’s betterment is more
real than that of the most solicitous
publicist. If we could but hear, He still
is crying from His cross, “Come unto
Me, all ye that labor and are heavy
laden, and I will give you rest."
The Master Word.
The master word for our troubled
today is the Master’s word. In front
of a time that is engrossed in the
pursuit of more money, more leisure,
new pleasures, fresh sensations, trivial
and prideful gratifications. He holds
up the cross upon which He was up
holder "I, if I be lifted up, will
draw all men unto me.’’ The new
level of life we seek is the cross
level. It is salvation from sin that
is a more pressing need of the land
today that the need for lower prices
or for greater production or for social
and industrial peace. Once let the
world come to the foot of the cross,
and everything, yes, literally every
thing, that ails our sickly time will be
healed straightway.
To save the world it is necessary
to save the people in the world. And
when they pre saved from sin they
will be saved from everything that
Is the matter with our day. The
broken heart of the Savior will break
the proud and stubborn and wilful
hearts of all of us who are hurting
our generation. HU vast love will
drown our mUerable selfishness. What
saith the Scripture? “He died for
all that they that live should no
longer live unto themselves, but unto
Him who for their sakes died and
rose again.”

15:22-19.
