Kroderlc Bturgti, addressed larger congregation of Intoreated lletenera on "Thr Crun f nhrlit ami the Boelal Ideal" last Sunday night. Uaing a hig text, Matthew xxn: 37. 18, 19 ami 4u, Dr. Hturgii --. i i Juetlco Hughei of i ha ITnlti .1 states Rupreme court, in a meaaage in tht young people of Americai said that what wo in ii moel of all is faith Now i don't know that It ! a poaal- hllity fnr any man in rlae In a true conception of the Importance of faith. And I have never heard a aermon on thai Bubjeot which Deemed to me in approximate the demand. What we need mora than anything olae, per tiapi in HiIh ago ni apiritual doubts, Intellectual complexltlea, toelal un real ami a aoeming lack of force in the peraouallty of a greal maaa of Individual!, is thr faith of a Uoaea, who could face thr leomlngly aiblo because he hail situ God The faith of a Paul ahlpwroekod In lh Mediterranean. Tin' faith of that glortoua band of tin' eleventh chap ter of Hebrew' We want faith in ounclvei, Ami we won! faith In tin? reign nf goodneas. We want faith in the supremacy nf thr power that makci for rlghteouaneag. As Indlvld ual ami as Christian organisational we want nut only a confidence in thr All-Father, In our fellow-men and In ourselves, hm we must nivo nf our Belves to Qod ami duty, in practical t.Hi tin -i' two things mean the 'aroe thing, The Qod nf thr world li the world'! good, n Ii our duty in bring goodneas Into tin- world, which means that it is our privilege to bring Qod Into Hm world. "gpeak in Him. thou, for He hears, Ami spirit wit h spirit ran ini'i't Closet is Hr than breathing Ami nearer than hands ami feet." Faith in :nii meant faith in man kind. I .. i k ni faith in mankind imam mall faith in Qod. Do not look at life cynically. Do nol hold yourelvot aloof ami look a'kani n thr efforts nf your brethren, ami retire within you reel vea ami achieve a little ier lonal lucceai as though it meant any thing. Nn matter how much money you have, or how much fame you nave, or now much achievomonl you have. iiuthiiiK meant anything unless yon feel that you ran take hold nf u man's hand ami have him know that ynii air Ills friend it would appear by this that oiic'b religion might hr represented by threat concentric circles. In the first you place mun himself, ami hr r cache Qod through the second circle repre senting his fellow-men. "if you lovs nut your brother w hom ye have soon, how ran you lova Qod, whnin ye have not seen?" It is not the profession of our faith in Qod that counts; rather it la thr manifestation of our faith in Clod depleted of our faith in our fellow-men, If " man s religion is to ho real it must from tlte Christian viewpoint h.no this social aide, A aide that has to do with thr brother hood of man. oh. yes, i understand! This self-same "brotherhood of man" is a iplendld thing to talk about, but a more difficult thing to realise, for it require a confidence in our fellows. Internal disarmament, the settlement of disputes between capital ami labor, ami all other social. Industrial ami or ganisational questions run only be brought to a happy ending as confi dence in our fellow-men is made a n al factor, it is strange strange be yond thr human understanding that iu those times of multiplied organisa tion! for social betterment, ami for thr studs, of sociology, We arc so slow to Irani thai faith in our fellow- 1 Is thr key tu thr knowing nf human ity; for without faith there can ho no knowledge, To tain this confidence ami this knowledge we mut learn, also, that If society is to In- placed on a film foundation we must meet each other In all the relationships of COLD GONE!
