Flynn Is Speaker at Supper Presbyterian Young People Hear Talk on Life Philosophy "My Philosophy of Life" was the subject of a talk given by the Rev. C. E. Flynn, pastor of the First Methodist church at the meeting of the Supper Horn- club of the First Presbyterian church Sunday evening. Dr. Flynn gave the five tests which he uses on religious thinking, discussing first the reasons why he believes that there is a definite creator at the heart of the universe. "One of the first principles of scientific thinking is that every effect has a cause," he said, pointing out that there must be an infinite power and wisdom behind the laws of nature. He said that it is the soul or personality which gives life meaning, spoke of the thirtgs which we cannot see or hear or understand indicating that the world is what our minds have made of the earth, and discussed the habit of looking at things and seeing them not as they are, but as they might and should be. Dr. Flynn's final point was the philosophy of optimism--the ability to see something good in life. The talk was the last in a series f talks given by leaders of local ctivities.
