Under the verse, "See that yi abound in this grace also," the Rev J. Lee Lewis, at the First Baptis church Sunday morning discourse( on "Those Macedonian Christians.' "Many of the churches mentionet in the New Testament are rebuked by the writers of the letters," sail Mr. Lewis. "St. Paul referred to tht Galatian church in the words, 'O foolish Galatians,' and the Laodi cean church in Revelation becausi it was neither hot nor cold was to be spewed out of the mouth. Bu these Macedonian churches were praised in the Apostle's second letter to the Corinthians in the eighth and ninth chapters." "Why?" asked Mr. Lewis. "Well, they had found the source oi Christian love. D. L. Moody defined 'grace' as 'God's love in action. 1 Grace is God's gift to us of spiritual strength. Grace is the undeserved gift of spiritual life to those who accept and use it The Macedonian Christians had found :hat the grace of giving had been extended to them. They were urged Lo complete this grace among themselves. "Deep in Poverty." "Let .us not think that they were rich and well-to-do for the Apostle describes them as in 'deep poverty.' Moreover they had "much iroof of affliction,' which perhaps ndicates their sufferings from persecution from their pagan fel- ows. Notwithstanding they pos- essed under these unusual circum- tances 'abundance of joy,' and these three conditions God trans- ormed into 'the riches oftheirlib- rality.' " "There is only one 'rich' man lentioned in this chapter and he s 'Jesus Christ, that, though he ·ere rich, yet for your sakes he ecame poor, that ye through his joverty might become rich.' But ot only were the source and the ause but the manner of the Mace- onians giving made plain by the rreat missionary apostle, for they ave themselves first to the Lord." James Stinehart, son of Mrs. J. E. Stinehart who broke her wrist ast week, played the organ in place I his mother. In leading up to the every raem- ier canvass of and congregation on March 22, a minute .an speaker gave a special mes- .ge on co-operating in putting ver the proposed budget for the ew year.

Kratz, pastor of the Church of Christ, in his morning sermon on I Believe in Christ," the second one n a pre-Easter series on "Great Christian Beliefs." "A great mountain peak is the ource of streams coursing down in II directions, fed by the perpetual ·nows. and giving life to the arid egions through which they pass," aid the minister. "Any one of these main channels if followed upward vill lead finally to the peak itself, o the great channels through vhich flow' the streams of life's eeper influences all lead upward to Christ. "All historical events are chron- cled as they fall before or after the mpact of Christ upon the world. Humanitarian movements, democ- ·acy founded upon the essential worth of the individual, the emancipation of women, the care of the sick, and the proper culture of children, all have their source in Christ and are best represented in those nations that are the most Christian Of Deep Insights. "The noble creations of art and iterature are the result of deep spiritual insights revealed through religious faith. He is the highes' eak in human character. The best :hat can be said of any one man is iat he was Christlike. The power and influence of the Scriptures ant their essential teachings are a repre sentation of the person and mission of Jesus." In discussing the 'meaning of this faith to present day life, Mr. Kratz declared that the essential need ol the world was an adequate system of human control. "Engineering genius is solving every problem in the world excep 2ie control of human nature," hi said. "We can direct the course o Jie wind and utilize the tides of the sea but we cannot curb the inborn ust of war bent human society. A new world can be built only with new people. "God, mediated to the work .hrough Jesus Christ, revitalizes th inner lives of human beings and establishes the source for the buiiding of a new world.'' "Man" Studied.
