First is one that makes all Christens center around the sacrnmenUj. liese, if properly ndministcred by divinely called men who trace some ihysical contact back to Christ, ring blesslnga into one'a life. This comes dangerously near to magic and superstition, we need with the oeermony to make some effort for ourselves. To make the aacrament effective, the worshipper must open th« door of his heart, to seek, that he may find. "I will be fond of thee in the day that thou searchest for me with all thy heart." Second is a method that appeals especially to the intellect. The mind is approached by the great truths of God. These may be learned. But more is needed than knowledge. We need not only to know, but to do Jesus told of a house built on rock and of one on sand. To hear alone to build on sand. To hear and to do is to build on rock. A third method is that which requires a keen realization of individual alnfulness and guilt Consequently, upon repentance * <Jiear Joy of forgiveness. This is to "experience religion." Buch know the "Joy of salvation." It is easy to trust in forms or in beautified ceremonies and Ben-ices, but only such things as touch, the will and make & dec4- sion for righteousness can bring God into our lives in any saving sense. But these wills of ours are hard things to control. Let us welcome then the poem, the song, the story, of Christ, or the experience of his missionaries, that touches the feelings, for the feelings are mightily powerful in wooing the will and so bringing God to us. , after which the girls are going pack a Thanksgiving basket for carry on some community work this year.
