" In bay opinion the unanimous agreement reached by the two committees of 10 Vof the Angli can arid United Churches last month" is ' the most important step towards reunion of the Canadian churches since 1K3. (At that; date. Methodist.; ?rei byteriani and Congregational Churches arid the Local ,t'nion Churches, came together to form the United Church of Canada) -' The committees have reached agreement after 22x years on two things: the essential elements in the faith and x order of the church, and the main principles . thatv should govern the union. . THE REPORT must now go to the General Synod of the Anglican Church that meets this summer and the General Council of the United Church of Canada that meets in September 1963. Through- the -r years I have been among thiise ' who often wondered if it were really worth whPe carrying on the conversation.

It had been built by a man who desired to surpass hu generation in every respect. He must be the greatest and bui'd the biggest of everything. Other men mnt have been satisfied to build a beautiful and substantial emple corres ponding, to the other great tem-p'es built by his neighbors In their capitol cities. -But not Solomon.

One , thing we. have learned in the United Church; union has worked. We sincerely feel that God has. blessed us. 1 know thrre were some heartaches but I do not know a minister apprehensions. I suppose But I believe that the same forces are at work in this movement "as are working in the great movement to Christian 'unity found "air over 'the Chris- beltian world, of which the change h Methodist or Congregational m Rome j5 the most dramatic tradition who would want to go xDress:on. i back to our old divisions. . The union with the Anglicans will be more di.'f:cult. But we all krio'w in "the United, Church they have many gifts to bring. We hope we have some . to share. And it should be remembered "this will not be a merger of two ecclesiastical bodies, nor a new cnurcn iormea nke me Toronto Dominion Bank, this will be a new manifestation or embod.mcnt of the One Church of God. Basically we are one church no. N ' LN there And it is not chef!y a practical pressure. There, were many, many practical pressures at rk prior to the 1923 union. And there are many places where 'the division be-trtn United and Anglican is shamefully- impractical. But work together better than they are now doing. . ANOTHER forcecomes out of our experience. We enjoy now a meafsure of unity. It is the g.fti successor. Rehoboam. and the of the Holy Spirit. We beJwve; mighty kingdom i we should manifest the unity worked to the glory of Solomon and the depletion of their own strength. The day would come, after Solomon's death, when his abused people would rebel of the glorious temple, was left. under God's command, for David's! son. ' ' THE LORD appeared unto Sol-oman at the beginning of his feign and asked him to mike any request his hearf might desire. Solomon had asked for an understanding heart -that he might rule God's people with wisdom and justice. Now after Solomon had finished the build-fhg -of the. temple. God again appeared to rhe monarch and this trrne.gave him Instructions regarding his behavior and fidelity. At the beginning of his reign God had praised Solomon. Now, however, His message had about it a firmness, and gravity of tone w"hich indicated that the Most High was not altogether pleased with Solomon's way of life. In establishing a great harem Solomon had allowed his wives to bring into the realm their REV. II. W. WONIOR and overwhelming the interna! glory. ' Religion was given a place on the side lines, and Solomon's building projects and his much vaunted wisdom was coming in to daule the eyes of the world j and to call forth its adulation. I.V THE experience of individuals and that of nation, the Bible' narratives set forth the basic lessons which God would have His children of every gen eration heed and obey. Too muchly tanKrfga glory had gone to So'omon's J . ... . nra.- ms aimuue na nngru from that of humble submission to God's will to an attitude of pride and arrogance. God seri-ous'y warned htm of what would (follow. The temple would be destroyed, his kingdom divided, his glory trampled "in the dust. It happened precisely as God had warned Solomon it -would happen, Solomon built a great we now know and seek the greater unify God has for us. . There are many reasons but another is the new sense of mission' in the church. It was magnificently expressed by the Anglican Congress in Toronto to ears ago. On the very practical level the mission is so great, and so urgent, we should no longer attempt to be used by God in it hostile or divided. For two decades when a young man asked an older churchman what he thought of the Anglcan-l'nited conversa tions the older man was'y against Solomon s weak son and idols and priests, thus, setting up other forms of worship alongside that of Jehovah worsh p. of Solomon would be - rent m 'twain. Today's Sunday school lesson deals with the consecration of days when the people had escaped their bondage in Egypt, the Hebrew's had worshipped in the tabernacle. This was - a movable "structure, a tent in fact So the people under Moses, and later Joshua and his successors, had moved about the desert, they had set up and taken down this rather Tenormous tot many times. David had At Gibeon, God had praised the young monarch and heaped upon him assurances of divine favor. In this second appear ance.. however, Qod was solemn in His warning that Solomon must remain faithful to the one tru God or experience divine d.s favor.- God always Jtives us a second chance. Solomon was slipprg morally. The man of vast learning was comprom's'ng -s re gards religious matters, and a!
