Editor's Note—At the request of the Sterling-Rock Falls ministerial association, a brief synopsis of on of the Sunday sermons delivered 1 the local pulpits, will be publlshc each Monday in The Gazette. Eacl of the protestant ministers will fur nish the prepared copy of the ser mon In his turn, which will be de signaled by tho chairman of th committee. tle GUI Janileson, 10-year-old son of a Honolulu baiaker wllo was slalo by a kidnsper ia a case islmlte to the Hlckman crime In Los Angeka. He la pictured above with his mother. The boy was decoyed from school by & young Japanese. Taking his text from Psalm 121 :3 'My help cometh from Jehovah, Rev. M. D. Bayly delivered a wr non Sunday at the Fourth stree iJethodist church on the subject What Does God Mean To Us?" A ynopsis of the discourse furnishet The Gazette by Rev. Bayly follows To the careless, Indifferent and superficial types of humanity God seems to mean but little yet to the sincere student of life He means more than can be expressed. Few f us consider even the phenomena long our streets and the comnum- tace outside our doors. Our world ppears different from every view The tree tliat appears green when near appears blue or darker at a distance. The very stones along our pathway are meaningful to the mineralogist and suggested texts for sermons to our Master. Beautiful flowers sending forth fragrance to sweeten our countryside are objects of admiration arid study to the botanist and declared greater in beauty than the splendor of Solomon by out L<>rd. So. too, religious men look into God's world for manifestation of His purpose. The sunset and the cloud combine to portray His con- eepror beauty, intermingling composite colors. Even common light resolves Itself Into an unvarying, lawabiding spectrum. Religiously. too, we experience the Intermingling factors that make up our temperament and often times analyse our attitudes when they combine to yield results In terms of assurance, ace and happiness. During historic eras men have endeavored to fathom these experiences and by pen and spoken word have tried to pass them on to 'succeeding generations. The interpretation of God's beauty finds uniaue •xprtssslon in Grecian art and aculp- «"»• la modern days it is expressed m art and architecture such as paintings, cathedrals, etc., and also la forms of worship that ensnare and enrapture the expectant, seeking soul Stirred by these heavenly concept* and visions men have gone into the world. tQ^giyfi *i»n to th«ae~lofty ideals to works aai - is been content with eplritual paralysis and religious retrogression. The spirit of Christ, however. It. continually marching onward despite the dimmed vision of the masses. Poets snd propheU yearningly pray for the closest possible communion with the Dlvino. Mm. Bhcrwln expresses the prayer of many in her song. "O may my walk be close to God." Washington Gladden pleads, "O Master, let me walk with thee" and Tennyson asserts tho practicability of this hope and declares, "Nearer is He than breathing, Nearer than liands or feet." This substantiates the experience of Paul when he stood on Mars' Hill, Athens, and said, "In Theo we live and move and have our being." Furthermore the desirability of this relation is attested to by Jesus himself in Ills constant prayer life aa well as being made central hi His parable of the Prodigal Son. For though the latter Is wayward he is still a son and anxiously awaited by » yearning Father. This reclamation program engaged me major part of the Master's activity and He Justifies it by saying, "I came not to call the righteous but sinners to repentance and again, "They that are whole have no need of the physician." Present* Self In Ivisny Ways. In a world so meaningful we naturally look for God and His manifestations. He present* himself hi various ways. At one moment we feel the Impress of His spirit of goodness and purity. At another there surges the innate, dynamic urge of divineneas practically compelling us into Christian activity despite our stubborn resistance. 80 x>tent and possessive Is thia quality hat one eminent soul has said, "He .hinks through our thinking, feels through our f eeling and acts through our acting." By so doing Qod IB able through natural channels to Jirect thought-currents in ever; luman realm. He sends forth th 'earless prophet in every age to build a world upon pillars of right eousness, justice, love and peace le directs searching, analytic minds ike that of Pasteur and millions of others to search for disease ex- .erminating specifics. He leads forth he pastor, poet and phUoapher tha they may apply to their-*ge-4h» principles of happiness and goo< will. No matter how small the eer- viee H is built Into th* foundations of the eternal kingdom on earth. 80 true and noticeable is this fact nat Robert Browning asserts to ?ipl>a Passes that "^ 1t . Bervice te the 8 < une ^th God— With god, whose puppets, best and worst Are we: there Is no first nor last." Accepting this inevitable principle of God exerting His pleasure find power through human agencies we e*e our task and privilege Joom a* the lofty mountain peaks. From it there is no escape. Every prayer we utter recognizes His power to lead and ours to interpret and follow. Nor Is there any higher recognition of Ood's image upon our souls than the recognition of His contact and communion with us and us with Him. "He created us a little lower than the angels," sang the psalmist and calls us from the seat of custom like Matthew, the disciple, to become co-workers with Him in Kingdom building, Herein, too. lurka a danger in modem life. Like a dog called from either end of the block by competitive boys we listen to the still, small voice of God and then to the boisterous, aluring appeal of selfish pleasure and decide to seek our own delight*. No won- aer the Master of Galilee stood BO frequently with anxious gaze and troubled soul. Look upon Him &t TO stood in picturesque Perea and unfolded the meaning of His kingdom of love.
