Many Comment Favorably on
Outdoor Meetings of
Nothing which Market Square
Church has done for a long time has
called out so many and so favor
able comments from 4he general
public as last Sunday evening's serv
ice in River Front Park. The audi
ence included people from almost
every denomination in the city. They
were representative people; million
aires. leaders in state government,
sat side by sire with men and women
who haven't been at a religious
meeting for months. A man sat with
two Greeks, two Syrians and two
Chinese about him. Perhaps no more
cosmopolitan audience has faced a
preacher for a long time than the
one before Dr. Hawes when he set
before his audience, "Jesus, the Na
ture Lover." "You gave me a new
idea of Jesus," said one of the best
known Bible students of the city.
"This new setting started my mind
running in a new channel." To-mor
row night it is expected that there
will be many more people attend.
Arrangements are being made for
more seats. "I shall not be sur
prised if more than a thousand peo
ple come to the service," said the
pastor. "We will do our best to ac
commodate them. If they can't find
seats there is plenty of standing
"Also may I speak of the morn
ing service in the church. The sub
ject 1 have chosen is intended to help
people who are carrying great soul
loads in these days. It is my notion
that people need a message from the
church which will turn their minds
to Christ, their helper. We certainly
get enough of the war in the daily
papers and magazines and books.
We need Jesus Christ."
