The Golden Text was from Zephaniah 3:17, "The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he-will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his, love, he will joy over thee with singing" The Lesson-Sermon comprised quotations from the Bible and, from the Christian Science textbook, '"Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. One of the Bible citations read: "Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Kay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us f o r ' I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord" (Rob. 8: 35, 3739). Among the selections from the Christian Science textbook was the following: "Spiritual man is the image or idea of God, an ide.i which cannot be lost nor separated from its divine Principle. Wher the evidence before the material senses yielded to spiritual sense the. apostle declared that nothing could alienate him from God from the sweet sense and presence of Life and Truth" (p. 303).

Prof. Raymond Olson, dean of Christianity and instructor in public speaking at Waldorf college in Forest City, preached the sermon at both morning services at Trinity church Sunday morning. The text of the sermon was Matthew 9, 36-10,7. Quoting the words of the text, "But when He saw .the multitudes He was moved compassion for them, because (hey were distressed and scattered, as sheep not having a shepherd," the speaker said that Jesus manifests a deep understanding of man's need, his sins and the bitterness and class hatreds that work to destroy the lives of men. "He sees every soul as a lite that shall pulsate throughout all eternity, but under the stress o[ sin and their daily struggles, living only lor today," Ihe Waldorf instructor .staled. Jesus looks out upon the world and as He sees humanity as a great hat-vest that is to be gathered from the enslaving power of sin into the kingdom of God, He pleads most earnestly that His believing children pray that the Lord send out more laborers into the harvest, who are willing to pay the price of a life of service and sacrifice.
