Last night he "spoke to a large audience on .the theme of "Drsams, Their InterpretaticrC and Use." . He said in part: "Yesterday God spoke to men and women through their dreams, but today we are so materialistic that we hear not the ,volee of God at all The trend of the times is away from. Odd and away from the great spiritual forces of life. God truly Is speaking, but.we do not hear, He is striving to" reveal himself 'uVo us, but our spiritual faculties are so dulled, that he Is speaking'to deaf ears. Today, as In olden times, God Is speaklni to us through our dreams, but we refuse to even treat them «er- louily."
