But i say unto you love your enemies bless them that curse you do Good to them that hate you and Pray for them which despite ully use you and persecute you that be May be the children of your father which is in heaven for he Marketh his to Rise on the evil and on the Good and Send eth rain on the just and on the in just. For it you love them which love you what Reward have be do not even the publicans the same be be therefore perfect even As your father which is in heaven is St. Matthew 48 christianity employs Modem hew methods by George w. Cornell new York feb. 19 we christianity is transported today in some unusual packages. It has to be in order to get around. In modern America with its mosaic of the Ultra new and the very old it takes All kinds of conveyances to cover the ground. As a result the Church today is far from being the Only vehicle for tie gospel. Probably the most striking development has been religion s Don Ning of the seven league boots of radio and television. Tills has be come a prime medium for mod Ern missionaries of Many faiths. But less noticed Are some of the other methods of carrying the Mes Sage into the Back country and into the channels of Industry and contemporary living. One of the techniques has been to turn preachers into pilots. In several sparsely populated areas ministers have taken to planes to tend their flocks. Such is the Case for congregationalist minister Harold w. Heckman in powder River county mont., where he serves a mile area. Airport chapels christianity has also moved to the airports to get close to air travelling americans. Homan Cath Olics have their our lady of the airways Chapel at Boston s air port and chapels at new York s la Gurdia and Idlewild Fields. In Sharp contrast Are the Pas tors who make their rounds by even Donkey. Regu Lar transport for the Rev. Kenneth j. Porray at Community Church at the grand Canyon is a Gray mule. He needs it to visit his in Dian parishioners at the Bottom of the Canyon. Ministers nurses and social workers of the National Council of churches ride in to stay with the million migrant labourers who Fol Low the to reap crops. Then there s the Rise of the drive in religious service to keep abreast of the restless Auto Mobile infatuated masses of americans. Neponset mass., started the idea four years ago with a drive where the whole family in Cludine Gudets could pull in and hear a Sermon. Others followed suit. Highway signs in the Bronx the protestant Council put up this big Highway sign beside its summer drive in Church before your sunday ride drive in and worship there have been similar innovations like the Hocky mount n.c., business group which promoted a Roadside Chapel on u. S. High Way 301 for use by motorists. Utah traffic officials even put this biblical verse on state vehicle inspection stickers hoping to re Duce accidents therefore All things whatsoever be would thai men should do to you do be even so to at a filling station at Wynne Wood okla., operator Irwin w. Tucker has a prayer Sanctuary so people can get a spiritual re fueling when they Stop for . Hundreds of factories and Busi Ness establishments across the country have inaugurated regu Lar devotional periods. For instance Gold s department store Lincoln neb., and the Dallas morning news Start each Day with group prayer. Out of such soil has grown a wide movement for Industrial a Pioneer in this Field is presbyterian pastor an Thony Monteiro of Newark n.j., who has sparked a growing program to put worship into work and Christ s teachings into labor management relations. The talents of entertainers and artists have been drawn into serv ice of religion in novel ways. American catholics will have a National shrink to the blessed Virgin when the Church in this drawing is completed. Walls Are to be started this foundation has been finished and includes a crypt Church which already is in use. A 10-Acrc site in Washington was donated by Catholic University of America. Cornerstone for the building was Laid in 1920 Bur War and postwar Relief work caused suspension of building activity. Church officials say it will rank with the greatest in the world.

By Rev. P. Frank Price what is probably the most famil r chapter in the Bible the one lost often quoted in its entirety not in the new testament but n the old. It has had an Appeal own through the Ages even before Christ came and gave it a deeper leaning. Many thousands of articles and Ven books have been written about with Many different explanations. T has always seemed to me that Means most when it fits into our everyday experiences. The lord is my Shepherd i Hall not the lord of the universe appearing under the Fig re of a Shepherd raring for his helpless sheep some of them Way Ard and wandering astray and ome of them getting into trouble v following the crowd always has Appeal to us in our human perverseness and helplessness. I Hall not surely Means i Hall not Lack any Good thing a ording to the lord s definition of hat is Good. Once in my Early ministry i was Raveling along the Road in the i contains weary and Dusty and ired. My Eye caught a rippling Tream by the Side of the Road the grass was Green and the hade of the Trees was. Most in i went and sat Down under he Shade of the Trees drank some f the cold water and then went on try Way truly refreshed. Then i Houglin of those words in the 23rd 3salm he Marketh me to lie own in the Green pastures he Eadeth me beside the still Waters be rest Oreth my Yea though i walk through the Valley of the Shadow death 1 will fear no evil for Hou Art with me thy Rod and thy staff they Comfort there Are three things we can say about those words which have comforted so Many in the dark and trying hour 1 the Road through the dark Valley or the deep Ravine _ not a Deaden nor is it a grave Vard. It May be fearful but there s an opening on the other Side. That Little word the Good Shepherd leads us All the Way through 2 i will fear 10 evil Here As in so Many 3arts of the Bible Means that which s of the evil sometimes lie word evil is translated evil one. That is no evil or ugly thing to be feared. All the things that seem so fearful in the dark Valley Are controlled by god s love and Ove casts out fear 3 thy Rod and thy staff they Comfort it is a thick and Strong Rod to resist in wild beast which the Shepherd even though the milling about. Then has in one hand and the staff which has Crook on it in the other. With the staff he can reach up to an overhanging tree As he climbs he Steep places or with the staff in can reach Down and pull Hack the lost sheep that is ready to Teristi. Prep Auest before me a table in the presence of my ene Mies at one time in China when i was a Young missionary still unmarried there arose All of a Den one of the anti foreign riots that was so common in those Days which it was easy to raise a against the hated foreigner. I was invited to the Home of an older missionary and his wife who were having another missionary to Dine with them that evening. As i went through the scattered crowds Here and there there were suspicious looks and whispered threats and now and then they would raise the cry kill the fore but As i entered this missionary Home All was quiet and unperturbed crowds were 1 thought of that verse As we sat Down to the supper table thou prepares a table before me in the presence of my by the time that supper was Over the crowds had grown weary and scattered. Thou anoint est my head with Oil my cup run Neth we think of David who As a Youji was chosen Over his seven older Broth ers As Samuel anointed him King. He could say with grateful Joy thou anoint est my head with Oil my cup run Neth As deeply True and As deeply loved is the 23rd psalm yet it is not the last word in the expression of god s care for his people under the figure of the Good Shep Herd. New truths break Forth As we read the 10th chapter of John. There the Good Shepherd himself is speaking and is revealing pro found and precious truth which Are not found in the 23rd psalm and in other parts of the old Testa ment. Jesus says truly truly i say to you i am the door of the sheep if any Man enter in by me he will be saved and will go in and find pasture 1 come that they might have life and have it More then there Are three great and new truths 1 i am the Good Shepherd the Good Shep Herd lays Down his life for the in these words we learn that it was the Good Shepherd himself who made a Way through the Valley of the Shadow of death by sacrificing his own life.

My sheep hear my voice and 1 know them and they allow me and i give unto them eternal 3 and other sheep hat arc not of this fold 1 must bring them also and there will be one flock and one then in the Book of Luke he gives the famous parable of the lost sheep and the Shepherd seeking his sheep until he find it. What a Story his is and How Many sermons and songs have been written upon it. Great hymn about the lost sheep was written by Ira d. Sankey Bush a biography of d. L. Moody by Richard e. Day contains the following touching account of the birth of that great Ivan. May 20, 1874, Sankey and Moody were in the Glasgow rail Way station waiting for a train to Edinburgh where they were to hold a three Days series of meet nos. Beginning May 21. Sankey bought a Penny newspaper. Among the advertisements he found miss Clephane s poem the ninety and composed in 1868. He clip Ped it pasted it into the seed and read it to Moody who was unimpressed. Two Days later at noon Moody was speaking in the free Assembly Hall upon the Good Bonar followed Moody. When Bonar finished Moody said Sankey have you an appropriate guidance came powerfully upon Sankey to sing the yet to do that meant Stark improvising there was no music. Lifted his heart in prayer opened the seed plot to the clipping and be in a there were ninety and nine that safely Lay in the shelter of the fold but one was out on the Hills away far off from the Gates of Gold the first verse went Well. He wondered if he could repeat the Melody on the second. He did. Note for note. And it has not been changed to this Day the great sigh that went up from the vast Audi ence and the sobs of thousands bore testimony that Zion had a new it was my privilege to hear or. Sankey sing this hymn at Northfield mass at the summer conference in 1889. He often Sang it by request and was always care Ful to give god the glory for the Good that the hymn seemed to do. And in that occasion he told this Story he and or. Moody had just re turned from their great Campaign in England and crowds were Gath ered at Northfield to hear them. It was impossible for the Village Church to hold the crowd and so Moody advised them to go out while or. Sankey rolled his Little hand Organ out on the porch from which also or. Moody spoke. One mile away on the Connecticut River there was a Man grumbling at his door and saying who is this Man anyway. We All know him Why make such an ado about d. L. Moody that Ter carries sound and Sankey s Sang the ninety and water carries sound and Sankey s Voic voice reached that Man on the other Side of the Connecticut River a mile away. And that night he was convicted and converted. In connection with the seeking of the lost sheep Jesus said the son of Man came to seek and to save that which was we have no happier work to do than to seek the lost sheep or the Little lambs and with tenderness and sympathy bring them Back to the fold of the Good Shepherd. In that event even the Angels rejoice c Rise or of a great Empire a Small happening compared with this. But As Jesus said or a ily i say to you there is Joy in heaven Over one sinner that re Church women study Darlington feb. 19 the third and fourth programs of the study course the life and task of the Church were held this week by the women of the Dar Lington presbyterian Church and Trinity methodist Church.
