KRATZTALKS ON REAL WORSHIP Attendance Records at Grace Church Announced; Rose Sunday Observed. "In these summer months many are claiming to worship God out of doors though with most it is a neglect of real worship," said the Rev. D. L. Kratz at the Church of Christ Sunday. "The ministry of Jesus was largely out of doors and it would be well if we all did find His spirit present in our contact with r.ature. The lily, the mustard seed, the wheat fields and the birds above furnished Him with themes for His discourses. He was at home on the stormy waters of the lake or in the mystic silence of the great desert. And when He prayed, God answered Him in the voice of thunder. "Of the crowds that stood by, many heard only a peal of thunder. Some claimed that they had heard an angel speaking. But Jesus heard the voice of God. In this mechanized world, many today ooly see a machine. A few still cling to a modified animalism, seeing spiritual beings acting in the phenomena of nature. But those who have learned to know the universal heart and mind of God the Father, see in all things the personality of the Creator and bear His voice in every wind." Records Announced.
