CHRISTANITY IN DAILY LIFE As never before in modem times we—that is all of us- are thinking of Christianity in terms of world-wide ministry and need. Some, of course, have always so thought of Christianity, and have emulated the example of the early Christian Church, and have sought to take literally' the commission of Jesus to go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature. Some have fulfilled that com' mission as missionaries; others have fulfilled it in ministering to their support. But these on the whole have been a minority of professing Christians. The great majority have had little worldwide missionary vision, or have responded rather feebly and casually to the appeals of their various missionary boards. They have been concerned chiefly about their own doorsteps. Now, however, Protestants have awakened to a consciousness of world- wide fellowship mission, and purpose, such as the Roman Catholic Church has long manifested. This is emphasized in the World Council of Churches, and in the World Communion which is celebrated on a Sunday in October. It is worth-while to point out that this newly found ecumenicity —a big word meaning broadly "all inclusive"—is as yet largely outward and organizational, though motivated by an earnest spirit. It is based on limitations and compromise, which in their very nature are un-ecumenical, and which some sincere Christians have been unable to accept. But great progr as has been made since the days of the early conferences, only a few days ago, looking toward a world faith and order, when the delegates were unwilling, or unable, to share in a common communion service. To me that has always seemed a triumph of churchianity over Christianity, for if these delegates had been Christians first, and churchmen secondarily, the most normal, natural, and Christian thing in the world would have been to begin with communion in the name and spirit of Christ. It is in individual Chi'istlan lives, deeply devoted to the Master, seeking His presence ar-l guidance in manifesting His spirit in daily living, and in all life's relationships, that the quality and power of the churches and their world-wide movement ultimately depend. This world-wide organization, consciousness, and purpose has come at a crucial time when Christianity in many parts of the world is confronted with powers of destruction and perspcution, such as one would never have thought possible in the world of today. Conditions such JS early Christians had to meet in the catacombs of Rome are not unknown in many parts where the outward worship and organization of the church has been suppressed. Survival depends upon the quality of the faith and life of individual Christians, perhaps as never before in our time. But this is true not only of those in such dire situations. The strength, power, and survival of Christianity depends upon the Christian faith and living of every professed follower of Jesus. A Christian .life, lived faithfully from day to day. is the best contribution that .vou and I can make to the world's organization and the world's needs.
